We enjoy the trip very much. Our guide "Mama" is a super fun guy. Like the time in desert 我們的導遊名叫媽媽,明明是個男的,超級活潑、愛開玩笑,在他的帶領,我們四人小團充滿笑聲~ 在沙漠露宿是非常奇特的經驗!

Mama is The best tour guide!! Gemg Gemg is so funny~~~ Love the safar~~ 旅行社會到車站接送, 提供出發前的休息房間及洗澡間。 坐吉普車到駱駝處,再騎駱駝到營地。 沙漠騎駱駝蠻好玩的, 導遊挺風趣~ 有機會再來~~

We had a great time on our overnight safari.The food was excellent and and we were only a small group of four people which was great. We appreciated the opportunity to purchase ice cold beer at the end of the first day, would have liked to be able to buy cold water or soft drink too. There was plenty of... More

Many thanks for the review. We do carry an ice-box that keeps the water cold for as long as possible but once the ice melts there's not really very much we can do - sorry about that, but it's the nature of the desert. We hope it didn't spoil your enjoyment of the trip. Thanks for choosing and recommending Trotters,... More

In my opinion everything was very organized and without "surprises". This is the second time I came to Jasailmer and I guess the first time I went to the turistic area and I remember more dunes. With trotters you go to an isoltated and quite area but less dunes. Don't expect Sahara here. Staff are nice and complementary shower and... More

Many thanks for the review. On your first visit you probably went to the famous Sam Sand Dunes - while they're the most extensive set of dunes in the Jaisalmer region, they are very touristy, next to the main road and surrounded by desert camps. The dunes we currently use for our one-night and day trips, to the north west... More
