We are committed to provide Tailor-made tours with high quality personalise services, to our clients, so they can experience the Authentic Indian destinations, in a memorable way.
1. Carefully suggested and organized Tailor- made Private Tours with Personalized Services, as per our clients need and interest.
We believe, every client is a different individual with different interest of travel and to see India with a different vision, therefore we do not club our clients to groups. We suggest, plan and organize only tailor-made, personalised tour holidays to India for each client. Either you can make your own group, we would be happy to organize a personalise tour for your private group.
Our motive is to offer and organize tailor-made personalized tour for you with your own private chuffer driven car / jeep and private tour escort/ guide , as per your choice so you can have a memorable tour in India at your own pace..!
For each of the tours we organize, we provide our clients with information about the history, geography, wildlife, culture and traditions of the people in each area in which we travel. We provide our clients with the highest possible levels of personal service and I am always delighted to assist in designing a tour and acting as your tour Escort / Guide.
We would be delighted to design a tour for you which will provide you with an enjoyable and truly memorable experience of India, and we believe that you will be completely satisfied with our service, and want to come back again and again to Summit Safari India.
Moreover, for the clients travelling to Indian Himalayas with us, we design tours very carefully to ensure that our clients get proper acclimatized, while going to the high altitude, by car (Jeep safari) or by foot (trekking). For this, we suggest alternative itineraries for those who have high altitude problems. We monitor every aspect of government policy and weather that might affect your trip and even are able to make last minute changes to your tour itineraries, up to the best possible level.
2. Our experience
We have over 14 years of extensive experience in leading groups and people in India and specially in the Indian Himalayan states. Personally I am a professionally trained and passionate about travelling and eager to share my experience and show my beautiful place to our clients. I started working as a trip Advisor & Guide since 1999, and till date I have experience to work for some of the biggest Travel Brands & clients of India, Europe, UK , Israel, South East Asia and Australia .
We have made our reputation and unique place in the travel market by our dedication, hard work, honesty, punctuality, knowledge, friendly and professional behaviour. Our direct association with these companies and clients speaks about our efficient & reliable services.
I have travelled widely in India and the Indian Himalayas since 1994, providing the sort of tours, that now I offer to my clients. I have founded Summit Safari Travel Company since 2008. Our team members have years of experience of working in their regions and our associate offices ( the local service providers) are among the best available in their region.
3. All internal travel arrangements.
Our clients have to organize themselves to any international airport in India, as per we will suggest them at the time of planning their holidays. Summit Safari will meet you at one of the International Airports in India, and from then on will take care of all arrangements for the tour, including transfers to and from the airport, all reservations, internal flights, train tickets, hotel bookings, car hire, guiding services, and all arrangements whilst you are in India.
4. Expert and Knowledgeable Guides
Professional and experienced guides are the foundation of our business. All guides are registered with the Department of Tourism of their state. They are knowledgeable about the region, and will be able to discuss the history of the region, culture and traditions with you. They are also knowledgeable about India too.
Our guides in the Indian Himalayas are very experienced in dealing with the effects of high altitude as they come from this region, and they can therefore take better care of their clients. They are also trained in basic first aid treatments.
They are professionally trained and have explored all these parts themselves. The pooled knowledge and experience of our tour escorts/ local guides and drivers is, simply, second to none. In the past our clients have highly remarked about the knowledge, patience, kindness, honesty and dedication of our team.
Our guides and staff are honest, trustworthy, and dedicated to your comfort safety and happiness during your journey. Our hope is that all our clients will leave India with grand tales to share with their families and friends at home and will want to return to us again and again

The price of your holiday is fully guaranteed and is not subject to any surcharges. This guarantee is applicable once we have accepted your booking through a Booking Acceptance Letter and is subject to all payments being received by the due dates. The price guarantee applies to complete holidays bought from us and does not cover the purchase of individual items such as airline tickets or any other items that are not booked with us. There are no hidden costs or extra’s.
7. Client’s Satisfaction
Our business is based largely on clients returning or on the recommendations of clients who have travelled with us in the past. We feel proud to say that, we have clients who had travel 2-3 times to India , in the past with our travel company and are again looking forward to plan their future tours to different destinations in India with us. We believe in strengthening and establishing a long-term relationship with our clients. We help you to experience a wide variety of cultural, educational and recreational activities involved with local communities.
8. Safety and reliability
The safety and well-being of our clients is of paramount importance to us. All of our tours are led by professional and experienced guides. Our job is to ensure that you are safe and comfortable, and getting maximum enjoyment from your visit.
We design our high-altitude tours very carefully to ensure that clients are acclimatized gradually as they ascend in altitude, and we take acclimatization very seriously. We are also very concerned about food hygiene and do our best to ensure that food is well cooked and will not cause stomach upsets. We also use clean accommodation, and suitable transport and equipment.
We work honestly and wish to provide you with an unforgettable Indian experience, which will suit your interests. We encourage you to ask questions, and we always ask clients to contribute to the planning stages of the trip. Following your trip, we also ask you to complete a feedback form, so that we can act on the feedback we get to keep improving our service.
9. Food and accommodation
We pay strict attention to cleanliness and personal hygiene in order to reassure our clients of any health concerns. We provide quality food of high standard. The travel packages vary as to the number of meals included, and we will make clear what meals are included when we provide you with trip briefing notes. Most of the lunch stops are on the way in a local restaurant. We provide you a wide variety of different cuisines such as European, American, Chinese, Tibetan and especially delicious Indian meals with a choice of seasonal fruits and juices. All of your choice! If you are on a special diet, we will be happy to pre alert the hotels where you would stay, to serve you accordingly. Most important we provide bottled mineral water throughout the trip.
After a full day travelling, we know the importance of a neat, clean and comfortable room. There are many categories of hotels in India (from no-star to five star hotels), but we arrange conveniently located and specially selected hotels, guest houses, home stays with local communities or luxury camping for travellers—all of which provide something a little different from the main stream of chain hotels, whilst maintaining comfort. All rooms have private bathrooms with hot and cold running water.
We provide air conditioned and non-air conditioned luxury chauffeur-driven cars, and jeeps , mini coaches and large coaches according to your requirements. We provide the most suitable vehicles for the roads and terrain you will be travelling on. All the cars and coaches we use are almost new and come with white neat and clean seat covers.
All our drivers are very experienced and will drive to take care of your comfort and safety. Jeeps are made by Tata / Mahindra/ Toyota – very comfortable for 2- 4 persons with one guide in a jeep; private air-conditioned chauffeur-driven (taxi) will vary in size depending on the number of people. On most of your trips we will be using modern luxury jeeps or cars when travelling as a few individuals or travelling in a group. However for small groups we use 8-9 seater Tempo Travellers, 15-18 seater Mini Coaches and up to 35 seater large coaches depending on group size, to make certain that you have ample space to move about and see the sights.
For small parties we provide luxury jeeps or cars (eg 4 person can sit comfortably in such cars) so where it is appropriate we use a set of jeeps instead of coaches as these are more comfortable for the Himalayan roads. For certain journeys we provide alternative travel by first class train, or air travel.
Our drivers are well looked after by the company and for road journeys over many days they are provided with a per diem allowance to cover accommodation and meals. Again for such long journeys the vehicle and driver are normally available for local use, within reasonable limits, at each place or halt at no extra cost. When adding extra days to a tour using a car, the cost of retaining the car is also included in the cost of your holiday and is known to you at the outset.
Our drivers are very experienced and careful and are well able to maintain vehicles and to deal with any mechanical problem should it arise. They are particularly experienced at driving on Indian or Himalayan roads, and our clients have remarked in the past on their great skill. They are very patience while driving.
11. Responsible tourism
We are committed to responsible tourism. We ensure that our tours are socially, culturally and environmentally sound. We feel strongly that we should respect local traditions, religion and heritage. Most important of all is that we ensure that the local communities benefit directly from your visit, so it is helpful to them to have you visit. We are dedicated to preserving the beautiful and fragile places that we visit and to the natural beauty of our land.
12. Commitment to our clients
As an approved travel agent with the Department of Tourism, we are committed to providing the best possible service, and want to ensure a long term relationship with our clients to make their holidays memorable and pleasant, without any hassles. We want to make your journey the highlight of your life!
We accept responsibility for ensuring that the holiday which you book with us is supplied as described by us on the website or any other literature printed by us, and the services offered reach the standard promised by us. We guarantee to perform our duties responsibly, honestly and with care to make your stay as smooth and pleasant as possible.
13. The services of an experienced tour escort/ local guide
For group tours with minimum four persons we shall provide an tour escort. If the number is below five we may still, at our discretion, provide an escort. The escort will join you on the first full day of the tour and will remain with you for the main body of the tour. For some portions of the tour, normally at the end, the accompanying escort may leave you. In such instances local assistance / local guide is provided. Apart from the tour escort we also arrange and provide you with a local guide were ever required on the tour. All local assistance on arrival, departure transfers is provided by the company, or as per your choice.
14. Personal Familiarity and Being Local.
Our personal familiarity and being local from here, our depth in understanding of all things related to your travel needs in India means that we listen to your holiday ideas, honestly appraise them and plan the ideal itinerary accordingly. Our attention to detail never waivers from first contact, working together to plan and operate your perfect tour, until after you return home from what we are confident will be a trip of a lifetime.
Above all we believe that travelling is not about reaching the destination or to see it , but it all is about the experience of travelling from one place to another and it’s in the details – the places you stay, the transport and route that gets you there, the people you meet along the way, the stories you are told about the culture and religion, – that is what makes the trip; we therefore , through our extensive local knowledge are specialise in suggesting special tailor-made tour itineraries to give our clients the very best travel experience possible….!
