Carole A. Cambata
Greaves Tours, Highland Park, Ill.
The president of Greaves Tours earns her accolades by building hassle-free trips that don’t lose sight of the Indian Subcontinent’s rich cultural layers. One day, her clients might head out on a fearless street-food tour in Hyderabad; the next, they’re playing elephant polo in Jaipur. She’s also skilled at planning wellness trips and exotic honeymoons.
New favorite: The Sahib Room & Kipling Bar at the St. Regis Mumbai (formerly the Palladium Hotel), where travelers can sip cocktails named for the author’s poems and characters before moving on to kebabs and ice cream.
Other specialties: India, Sri Lanka and Bhutan.
