It was an awesome experience! We were not lucky about the weather (a big storm arrived) but our guide took care of us and everything was fine. They allowed us also to have a shower in their guesthouse! Thanks Trotters!

We followed the suggestion of "lonely planet" to undertake this kind of trips with one out of three suggested. We have chosen trotters and we are extremely pleased with the experience. They take you to non-touristic places with the chance of living the experience of staying in the desert with no one else around but you and the group! There... More

Before the safari even began the hospitality shown to us by the staff was above and beyond expectations. After arriving in Jaisalmer at 4am in the morning, the guide kindly let us into the guesthouse despite not being open for another couple hours. Being a group of girls, this was definitely a comfort we were all so grateful for. The... More

Trotters is the best choice if you have not decided whom you should go with. As a student, it is acceptable for me, I am not regret and impressed by their wonderful service. They provided me a gentle reminder on the preparation, pre-safari service like storage for our luggage and post-safari service like having shower in their guesthouse without any... More

Me and my friends have booked desert safari for 5 people from Trotters. We were a bit tensed as it was mentioned on the site that there will be no tent and toilets.

The tour was the most expensive out of the ones we analysed however the friendliness and openness of the staff us choose their tour. It was a great service, with great food. The agency staff in general was outstandingly helpful to us even in personal matters. However, we felt that perhaps doing a trip to the dessert from 06:00am to... More

Our sincere thanks for the kind review - the team was happy to be of service, and we hope you felt you got good value for the price paid: we charge what to need to provide a quality service and fare wages for the staff and camel guides. The longer overnight options might prove tiring for people who aren't accustomed... More
