This was such a great experience. Jitu took care of us from the moment we stepped out of the train station. He made sure we made it to his home for free and without hassle, taught us things about the area, the wildlife and the Indian culture, made us feel at home and relaxed. The room was lovely, clean with a fantastic bed (which does not happen very often for me in India). The garden was cozy and relaxing. We had a 3 day camel safari that was a lot of fun and started with a tour of the Rat Temple with Jitu. The knowledge that he shares added so much to our safari because we could identify so many animals and plants along the way. We also took a great "old city" tour that showed us the local Havelis and we even were able to go inside the Haveli that is now a hotel...spectacular. Jitu set it up but we dealt only with the rickshaw driver when it came to paying. Jitu does not take a cut for himself and checks to make sure that we were not pressured to shop at any stores. If you are looking for contact with friendly locals that you can really have a conversation with and would like to learn more about the area and wildlife in a small family setting then this place is perfect for you.
