It doesn't matter which company you choose, the "Bishnoi Tours" are not worth the time. The tour takes you to a small unimpressive shrine for 5 minutes, then a potter's shop/studio where a guy shows you for 2 minutes how a pot is made on a wheel, then the rest of the time is spent looking at the pottery he has on sale. Next stop is the place you see in the photos with attractive terra-cotta colored huts. Here you are not shown the huts and you don't meet the people or see how they live their lives but rather you are shown by one guy how he makes carpets, then you are shown carpets you can buy. After that the tour is finished. There is almost no input by the guide (he tells you a little about the Bishnoi as you are driving to the places, then he sits back while the potter/carpet guy tries to sell you their creations). So if you want to learn about Bishnoi try Wikipedia, but if you want to buy carpets and pots sure, take the tour. If your time is limited don't waste it on this tour.

Ray was great, spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting (an original village set up with local artisans showing their crafts) but totally enjoyable and would recommend. We travelled to various locations to watch a potter, weaver, block printing and opium ceremony/turban wrapping. Had traditional food made in traditional kitchen. No pressure to buy.
