I was picked up by Shambhu at 8:00AM in front of the clock tower. After a quick briefing in a very good English, we started the day and visited few villages (Shepard village, pottery village, bishnoi village and Shambhu village). I always felt welcome and there was no awkward feeling like "I'm the white guy coming to disturb the locals... More

Choturam and his family arrange for the best village safari. We were two, picked with convenience by Choturam's brother Shambhuram and taken to some lovely village interiors, spotted blackbucks, did pottery and learnt weaving at their home. The safari ended with home cooked food by Choturam's wife which was finger licking! I recommend this to anyone who is planning a... More

Chhotu was a wonderful guide, and we learned so much on this tour about the culture and history of the area. The people we met were welcoming and hospitable and pleased to show us their village homes. We saw traditional potters, weavers and his wife cooked a home made meal in front of us and we all sat down together... More

The tour is authentic and all in all a very enriching cultural experience. We both had a lot of questions (why the different coloured turbans, what... More

To all fellow travelers, This tour was amazing and the tour operators were great and very honest with their prices and their tour. Unlike other tour guides, they are not pushy and they ask you what you would prefer to do. If you would like to spend a half a day in the country side with Antelopes, villagers and country... More

Chhoteraam took the 2 of us on a day safari to visit the Bishnoi village + its people. He was a friendly, knowledgable + very patient guide. He tailored the day to suit us. On the journey he would stop the jeep to point out wildlife or to explain about the nature or the history. Everyone we met made us... More

It was just the two of us on the tour and we were taken to a very remote location and met with two camels. We were told we could spend as much time on the camels as... More

Your trip to Jodhpur isn't complete if you haven't boarded Chhoteraam's car. Call the man, arrange for a pick up from your hotel at around 8am. Go for the jungle safari. Experience the arid vegetation that you have read about in Geography text books. Learn about the local culture from your driver. Spot a couple of blackbucks. Go to a... More

We had an educative blast in today's tour.We not only had one of our best days in India, but we really felt like we experienced a less touristy and more real India. Chhotu our guide is an example of someone with vision and passion. Great tour and would definetely recommend it!
