Over twenty years ago, Chapri brothers Altaf and Bilal arrived in Delhi a dream of merging India's outstanding hospitality with modern-day business practices to provide exceptional travel experiences to the westerners.
The siblings pored over Indian history and geography to unearth compelling holiday destinations within the subcontinent. They then travelled through Europe and the U.S., establishing strong partnerships and gaining a deep understanding of western travellers ' expectations.
Upon their return, they assembled and personally trained, a team of budding tour executives, to reach the high international benchmarks set before them. Representing an eclectic array of faiths, backgrounds, and regions, the staff soon emerged as a harmonious group of true India travel specialists.
The time invested in recruiting and training a committed travel team has paid dividends as Discovery Journeys now works with the world's top travel companies, helping to deliver some of India's most remarkable and unique travel experiences. With an extensive interstate support network, no matter where their guests are holidaying, Discovery is always there to help.

We being Indian natives, nobody can feel the country's pulse better than us. Our staff members hail from all reaches of the country and carry with them indigenous information that adds local flavour to tour planning. This intrinsic knowledge helps us craft uncommon tour itineraries and refined classic journeys, all the while keeping abreast of the latest developments in Indian tourism, transportation, and politics.
It happens so at times that the flight gets delayed, the luggage is left behind, or some other unexpected problems emerge. That's when our expert on-the-ground support team comes to the rescue. With 24-hour emergency numbers and branch offices across the country, we're always there in case you need us. By constantly monitoring our clients' activities, we ensure safe travelling and a smooth, enjoyable journey to them.
In order to verify the quality of hotels, we personally inspect, and rank properties on our own five-star system based on international standards. Our staff and team members also check in person all the vehicles we use, and give our travel partners a list of guidelines on how to handle our clients. This includes providing fresh seat covers for every trip, purchasing water bottles, and using newer car models.
It's our attention to little things like airport garland greetings, providing tasty snacks and fresh linens for overnight train journeys, handing out cloth slippers for walks across hot temple floors, or offering clients a mobile phone to dial home or make emergency calls that sets us apart. Simple? Sure, but we believe that these added extras play a large role in turning a "good" journey into a "great" one.
Our passion towards our work gives us the courage to experiment and create unique tour alternatives, and seek uncharted "worlds" in our beloved India. There is an India that still lies off the beaten path, and we want travellers to explore it and revel in its beauty as we do. Coupled with matchless Indian hospitality, each tour becomes a memorable experience to be cherished forever!
