Welcome to Greaves!
For 30 years, Greaves Travel and our sister company Greaves Tours has been family-owned and operated, specializing in customized itineraries around the world. We are an international company with offices in the USA, U.K, Canada and India. Our first priority is always our valued clients and their satisfaction. We focus on designing memorable and unique travel experiences that fulfill your wishes. This philosophy has gained us international recognition, resulting in an invitation to join Virtuoso as a supplier, one of the world’s most exclusive travel consortiums. Last year our President, Carole Cambata, was named as one of Travel+Leisure’s A-List agents for the 2nd consecutive year.
The Greaves philosophy is creating a travel experience that is unique and memorable, and today is universally recognized by the discerning traveller as the ‘go-to’ operator for bespoke service to the Indian Sub-Continent and beyond. Our years of experience have given us the tools to guarantee the impeccable “Greaves service” wherever the destination.
As a family company who loves to travel, we believe in offering the same standards of service around the world, whether for pleasure or business, city breaks, weekends away or the vacation of a lifetime.
30 years ago, we started with what we know best, India. Our focus was to offer unrivaled travel experiences across the Indian Sub-Continent, from the Himalayan nations of Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan, throughout India, Sri Lanka, the Maldives and the Indian Ocean islands. To further our goal today, we are the only tour operator to own our own plane in India. This allows us to fly you around the country to places you would never see or reach on a “standard tour” with incredible ease, to discover some of India’s true hidden gems.
Our Tours and Leisure department caters to the individual seeking a unique vacation or a simple weekend away. We have worked with groups of all sizes and destinations, from destination weddings to special family reunions, from incentive groups to honeymoons. Our network of specialist companies located in every continent around the world, ensures that our clients enjoy the very best the destination has to offer.
We are delighted to work with you and we look forward to a relationship that we know will fulfill our promise of excellence in travel.
Assuring you of our best services at all times,
-The Cambata Family
Message from the Chairman
I am delighted to welcome you to visit and explore our website so that you may get to know the Greaves product and the teams that bring it all together, all of whom are dedicated to ensuring that your experience with Greaves is a happy one!
When you send in your first enquiry, it is immediately activated by our ’round-the-clock’ team who will acknowledge your communication. We then assign a team member to contact you with a detailed itinerary and quotation based on your personal ‘wish list’ and begin a dialogue with you to fine tune the tour and add in any special requests you may have. We can custom design a tour of the Indian Sub-Continent to accommodate any and all of your requests according to your budget. It is our job to advise you of all the various details that will not only ensure your enjoyment, but most importantly, your safety and good health.
Included in this website, we have a range of sample itineraries that cover all the regional areas of India, Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, The Maldive Islands, The Andaman Islands, The Lakshadweep Islands and the island nation of Sri Lanka. We can offer you combinations of tours that include any of these destinations, along with add-ons such as walking tours, tea plantation visits, trekking and boating experiences on lakes, rivers and the coastlines. We offer unique experiences of private yoga lessons, award winning spas, classes in cuisine and much more. We can provide many means of transport, from private chauffeur driven cars, to luxury ‘royal’ trains, to commercial domestic flights and of course the ultimate in luxury travel, our private aircraft. We have designed wonderful ‘wildlife’ tours by private plane, with accommodation at stunning jungle resorts with the ultimate treat of the sight of the magnificent Indian Tiger.
Once you have made your choices and your exciting tour is booked, you are ready for the experience of a lifetime.
On arrival in India our Greaves representatives will be waiting to greet you with a private chauffeur driven air-conditioned car that will whisk you to your hotel. You will be pre-registered and assisted by our representative who will ensure that your check in process is quick and seamless.
Your car, chauffeur and personal English speaking guide will be waiting to escort you on your first venture into the culture and sights of your chosen destination. As you continue on your tour, our Greaves representatives will be on hand to smooth the way, handle any questions or special requests and ensure that your tour of India is not only happy, but safe and truly memorable.
I thank you for choosing Greaves and wish you a wonderful experience on your journeys.
