How long in bikaner?

Hello there,

We are planning a 3 week trip for next year and have a suggested itinerary from a tour company. It is very full on and we were considering cutting out bikaner (much as we hate to do so!!) to give us more time in Delhi, Varanasi, jaisalmer etc... Would anyone strongly advise us not to do this??? Advice greatly appreciated! Tour currently is

Delhi- Varanasi- Agra - Jaipur - mandawa- bikaner- jaisalmer- jodhpur- udaipur, then fly to goa for a few days, then Mumbai for a night then home.

Thanks
