It was written that we would meet at 14:00, but when we picked up at 15:30 in the message. (It's better to keep the phone number for India.) He came to pick me up at the rickshaw at 15:30! The location of the hotel also came as specified. Perhaps it's an office, I stopped by a cafe, finished coffee time (free of charge), and took a jeep to the desert. I visited the ghost house, passed through the village, and rode a camel for an hour and a half while watching the sunset. It was very beautiful. As soon as I requested a restroom break and hydration from here, he took it. There are three beds in the desert. (There was no tent.) There was a bonfire a few meters in front of the bed. I drank welcome chai. At the bonfire, he cooked rice (chapati, dara DLA, rice, mixed vegetables). It was very delicious! You could choose spicy or non-spicy! We are traveling with three people, but the tour consisted of a driver, a camel messenger, and another three people! After the meal, he sang a song

The best trip ever !!! I can't resist myself to say this everytime I tell someone about this trip. Jaisalmer is the beauty with beautiful people living out there. The host Ashraf Ali, who is more than just a host to me. He is a pure soul. The best person i've met in my life. Talking about Mystic , its seriously MYSTICAL. I recommend everyone reading this, to visit Mystic jaisalmer , once you arrive at jaisalmer. The place is HEAVEN. It has everything ,the traditionally decorated rooms with all amenities to bed under the stars. The most soothing experience i've ever got. I can't stop thinking about that place, my body has left the place but my soul is still there. Its not just a place to stay, it itself is a tourist attraction, its mesmerizing.I am out of words , but my feelings for jaisalmer is like ocean. At last, i just wanna say, I loved each and everything and enjoyed alot.

An experience that has to be done once in a lifetime. Private tour, snacks, dinner and soft drinks, breakfast and a thousand other things included in the price. The staff super super friendly and close. We have not seen so many stars in our life as here. The sunset and sunrise is to be seen! Super recommended!!

Amazing experience! very well organized. lots of fun and joy. I recommend this to everybody!

Excellent Tour , Both Driver & Guide Very Helpfull
