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

We spontaneously booked a trip at our guesthouse and had the pleasure to meet Deepak. We really enjoyed the tour and it was interesting to see all the different crafts. It was always possible to buy something but we didn't feel under any kind of pressure. People seemed genuinely interested in showing what they were doing. Deepak was definitely a... More

I booked through singhvi haveli. I was able to walk and visit 3-4 different people's homes, and see the villagers during their daily lives. Raj was always checking in to ensure I was having a good time and gave me plenty of options for different activities. When we visiting all the shops- I felt no pressure to buy anything which...

We decided to go outside the city to visit some homes of people living in the villages in the surrounding area. Lonely Planet suggests Deepak Dhanraj of Bishnoi Village Safari so we booked him for an 8 o'clock pick. He was late of course but we checked via his mobile that he was on his way. He met us on...

I did both the village safari and camel safari and thoroughly enjoyed both- the guide is fantastic and provides you with an experience you definitely couldn't get on your own! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone!

We were expecting something very unique. However we were usher from one house to another. The guide & owner Raj were giving out some brick & brack at every stop to the villagers. Worst thing was we were asked to purchase some Nike trainers, Ray ban sunglasses n post to him. He kept trying on my mates Ray ban while... More

My husband and I took an open jeep tour and visited a rural Bishnoi family who were truly delightful. They opened their home to us in such a warm and sincere way. We felt like honoured guests. The tour went on to a pottery and fabric facility that was interesting and fun but not quite so authentic. I believe their... More

The villagers who are part of the tours are friendly and ready to offer a glimpse of their traditional way of life such as the arts of clay pottery, weaving and opium ceremonies.
