We did both the Village & Camel safari, both are really good experience to us and we saw a different side of India through these tours. We enjoyed our time with a guide with sense of humor :) The only down side is that the children in the shepherds village surrounded us to ask for money.

Chottaram was such a nice guy and a brilliant guide. He collected us from our hotel at quite short notice from us, and drove us to several different villages where we met local people who were kind and hospitable to us. The ethos of this project is to provide tourists with an experience of real life India, that benefits the... More

The tour started well. Chhote took us out in the Jeep and it was really nice to get out of the city and see the countryside. We saw quite a few different animals and Chhote chatting warmly about village life. Later, though, after arriving at his house and a very quick weaving demo, he forgot about us (after we said...

We took a trip with our guide Mayur around Bishnoi families. The trip was nice and Mayur did a great job: A firendly and full of information guide. The jeep went from family to family while Mayur told us about the different activities that go on in the dessert. A great way of gaining insight about the lifestyle around there.... More

While visiting Jodhpur, we were interested in a Jeep Safari to see some animals. However, we could only find village tours. We contacted Chhotaram by email and he came up with a tailored tour just for our needs and wishes. He picked us up in the afternoon with his Jeep and we drove out of town to spot various animals...

What a wonderful morning! Chhotaram was a fantastic host (and has a great sense of humour too). A great balance of activities. Our children (aged 17, 14 and 11) loved the baby goats, and we loved meeting so many hospitable, gracious people. If you only have a short time in Jodhpur, make this trip a priority! Very highly recommended.

Shambhu and Chotturam were both very gracious hosts. Strongly recommend if you have some time to spend in Jodhpur and are getting a little tired of forts and historic buildings. We saw a few blackbucks in the wild which was a nice treat. The handicrafts on display are very beautiful.

We did the village tour and camel safari in December 2016 and enjoyed both. We visited a small village and the people we met (if only 2) were very friendly. An older lady invited us to sit next to her in her mud hut and we watched her bake fresh Indian bread. We also saw and stopped for some animals... More

This village tour is unlike any other. It's real, from the heart and extremely authentic. You're driven around several villages getting to see the Craftsmanship and specialties within each. If you purchase any goods, the money spent goes directly to the villagers instead of middleman or high-priced tourist shops in the city. Not only that you're getting to see the... More
