My partner and I did a day tour around villages outside of Jodhpur from 8.30am - 2pm. Depak was an excellent guide. We got to try our hand making pottery, weaving carpets and tasting local cuisine. We saw locals living in rural communities, entered their houses and ate a delicious lunch cooked by Depak's family. Very nice to see a... More

We had a half day tour and loved it. They took us numerous homes in the outskirts of Jodpour. Deepak was a great host, very knowledge and easy to understand. Answered all questions. Great experience visiting the numerous villages. You see what what life is like in rural Rajasthan and you see the local people working in traditional textile industries:... More

Very interesting trip to visit the villages outside Jodhpur. They do not visit the same villages every time and it is a good opportunity to meet the Bishnoi and learn about their wonderful culture. Very peacefull and quiet. Deepak is a great guide, highly recommended.

We did this trip with the Jodhpur Outback. It took us all of 5 minutes to be bowled over by our guideD, eepak. It seemed like he knew every nook and cranny of the places we visited. Started off with a trip to a potter, where we go to try our hand at pottery. We followed this us with a... More

My friends and I were on a Rajasthan trip by RTDC. This happened to crop up and we decided to go for it. While we did not visit a lot around the village it was fun to see the black bucks, and different birds. The best part was interaction with the locals and getting to taste some of their local...

Thoroughly recommend the Bishnoi Village Safari Tour. Deepak was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and very personable. We visited a number of villages, which included a pottery demonstration, tasting of different agricultural crops (sesame, millet, lentils), experienced a traditional ceremony as well as a turban tying demonstration and weaving at another village. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

It is outside of jodhpur in a remote village. Car can be rented for a day tour to the village. It has lot to offer traditions and culture of maharo rajasthan. Worth a try.

Deepak warned us that we may not see much wildlife since the lake levels were extra high. But, even to his surprise, we saw male and female Blue bucks, an endangered gazelle, a spotted owl, and many waterbirds. We also saw the requisite water buffalos in ponds and camels along the road. We stopped by a daycare and met the... More

Our guide Deepak was friendly, on-time and informative No pressure to buy anything or tip anyone in the villages Shepherds village was the most authentic of all 4 villages visited. Bishnoi culture and history really fascinating story, yet the language barrier limits what you can learn from the villagers in their philosophy Overall a good half-day spent in the field.... More

We heard so much about the Bishnoi's and their environmental activism, so we really wanted to do this tour. Deepak was our guide and he first took us to his home from our hostel in a really old but sturdy Land Rover. We had tea and we were on our way. We visited a few villages and also stopped at... More
