We have booked desert tour with Mystic Jaisalmer. The tour is very well organised, we had received necessary info prior the trip., which is very helpful. We were briefed by the owner which is a very warm welcome. Our guide is great in explaining things along the way to us. Our camel guy is very handy and very friendly to us. I am traveling with kid and thanks to their patience and in trying to accommodate our needs. The food and snack are very good as well. We had a nice dinner with camp fire and sleep comfortably under layers of blanket. Cozy and warm, gazing to billion stars over the night.

Great experience going into the Jaisalmer desert with mystic! I am a female solo traveler and they made sure I felt extremely safe and comfortable. The guides are very kind and we had a great driver Samir! We went to a place where there no other tour groups going so we had the whole sunset to ourselves! Would recommend this experience.

First Rate tour experience! From the moment we were taken to the office in Jaisalmer for chai and cappucino until we were dropped back off the experience far exceeded expectations! Lodging, Desert Tour, Staff were all fantastic. I cannot reccommend this Company and Tour package more highly. A MUST when in Jaisalmer!

We had a wonderful time sleeping under the stars! Ashraf is an incredible host and his team took wonderful care of us! From cooking dinner over an open fire to singing and dancing under the stars, this is an experience you don't want to miss when visiting Jaisalmer!

The experience is fantastic. If anybody wants to experience real adventure, its here. Special thanks to Ashraf who made our trip memorable forever. Its a one time experience of living and sleeping under the stars. Best experience of my life
