Trotters were brilliant. This is a very well run operation. The location for the camel safari is remote and you will end up in a truly secluded spot for the sunset experience. The food was delicious and the Trotters team looked after us very well. A very memorable experience.

Would recommend! The Jeep driver was really friendly, and the tour through the desert was interesting. The camel walk is cool, even though it was really a tourist attraction. Sleeping in the desert was nice, the food freshly prepared.

Trotters was the perfect choice for our camel safari. They had flexible start and end times to customize the safari, which was what drew us to them initially. They gave us a room at the guest house before and after to wash up and rest. They were kind and friendly and made us feel like queens in the safari. They... More

So glad the team made you feel like royalty out in the desert! We're really happy to hear that you were satisfied with every aspect of your safari. Sorry the riding was tough on your friend, though, and we hope she's since recovered! Thanks for the review and for the recommendations. All the best from the Trotters team. More

This was our first experience on a desert safari as a family and we were not disappointed. Wonderful staff and service, fun transport in open air jeep, delicious Indian food, ancient desert stories and breathtaking sunset views were just a few of the incredible highlights we experienced on Trotters Camel Riding Tour. For anyone that might be a little apprehensive... More

Six of us embarked on a week long excursion into some of the most fascinating and remote corners of the Thar Desert. Every detail was well-organized and well-planned. Our wonderful guide Malu, ably assisted by Fusa and young Solah, were superb leaders for the duration of the trek, organizing everything from the camels to the food to our nightly beds... More

Jalam and Delhi made sure we really enjoyed our half day safari. They are very accommodating. Even though we went on a very hot day, they made sure we got unlimited supplies of water. The rest of the staff who went with us in the desert were nice and friendly.

With this being one of the main things most people come to Jaisalmer for, make sure you choose a reputable, quality company and Trotters was just that. We went on a few recommendations from fellow travellers we had met around Rajasthan and after a reassuring induction from a couple brit interns working in the office we were sold. We went... More

I had done a bit of research online before we got to Jaisalmer. I had seen Trotters a lot. We talked to 3 difference companies when we arrived. We went with trotters because the man was very kind and professional. The office was pretty nice as well. Some of the other companies did not mention seeing the village and oasis.... More

Thanks so much for the review! Very happy to read that you had a good time and enjoyed the camel riding and the additional sightseeing. Sorry about the windy weather! It's a hazard of the hot months and another good reason to provide raised beds - so we don't have to dig our guests out of the sand every morning....... More
