"It was a wonderful experience for the day. Driver was quite polite and took us to all the places mentioned in the tour guide. Even the tour organiser was quite helpful in arranging the cab as it was a last minute booking. This trip will be remembered for a long time and will surely recommend it to others(infact already recommended). "

It is a great deal. Beautiful place to stay. Owner Mr. Mahaveer is very humble and helpful person. Food was tasty & ample. The provided unlimited mineral water for us as and when required. Camel safari was also good & enjoyable. We enjoyed true Rajasthani folk cultural program at night. It was diwali on that particular day. They had arranged some in-house fireworks. Dark starlit sky, campfire, fireworks, folk music & wines - the whole ambiance was ecstatic. Overall a very good & comfortable stay. Only thing I would like to remind you that the region where the camp is located is named Osiyan. Here, you won't find complete desert like Jaisalmer. It is more like a terrain covered with thorny bush. Sand dunes are limited though the camel will take you to a nearby one. But, it's not a fault of owner. You will get compensated with their warm & humble hospitality.

It was an amazing stay. The booking through Thrillophilia was super smooth. The owner of the place Mr. Mahaveer is very helpful and welcoming person. All staffs of this place are very very well behaved and courteous. They served us all inclusions, written in booking voucher. The Camel Safari, Rajasthani Folk Music & Dance, food (lunch, dinner and breakfast) were awesome. The Rajasthani dishes were so delicious. We've enjoyed every bit of stay at this place!! Definitely recommenced place.

Superb
Great Fun.. though nothing compared to the Dune Bashing that one gets to do in Dubai. The driver and the jeep were good. But we were not happy with the tour operator because they were clearly sub-agents to Thrillophillia and do not have any facilities of their own.

Superb
Excellent service. Car Pick-up and Drop Off was on time. The driver was polite and ensured that we had a full view of all the important places. We did have to hire guides at various places though but overall a wonderful experience visiting some of the must-see places in Jaipur.
24 February 2020
Very Good
The Jaipur city tour was just about OK. Driver was good and picked us up on time and did the tour without any hesitation or hurry. We were not provided an english speaking guide as per Thrillophilia's commitment - we engaged our own guides at different monuments

"Excellent service from Thrillophilia!! Camel safari and zeep safari just for 1250/- (Pickup and drop included). No other vendor would provide an amazing experience for this cost. Cultural Program is good with campfire. We had some issue with the camel rider as he keep on insisting camel race for extra money. Even though it was good, I don't like forcing the people. Also, the desert is not actually Thar desert.It's just a small one lies before Thar, would have been better if we went there. Finally, it's worth the money and U can go for it without any hesitation"
