Questions and Answers
We believe that "roads not traveled are avenues not explored". And taking you for a pleasant journey through India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Maldives is what we do.

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

Our company was founded by Mr. Durjay Sengupta in August 2000, started at home. He wanted to help individual and independent travelers see India in an unobtrusive and leisurely way for the right price. The idea to start a travel company germinated out of Mr. Sengupta’s own travel experiences and vexations. He realized that everyone had the right to travel their way at their pace. Thus, circa 2000, the company was founded with a handful of young travel enthusiasts. We shared a common passion, TRAVEL. We also realized we loved a little pampering. Blame it on our imperial blood.

2. What is your company's mission?

For us, each guest is special and each journey unique. We ensure that each itinerary unfolds in a manner to acquaint you with the very essence of this enigma of a subcontinent. With the choice of traveling privately in the company of your loved ones, no matter how young or old, or in a dynamic group with people who share similar interests, we consider it our duty to give you a peek into the spirit of this glorious land.

3. What does your company specialize in?

Tailor made holidays to the Indian subcontinent – India, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka

4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?

Mr. Durjay Sengupta. As a hotel professional who has worked on the initial days of "branding" Howard Johnson Hotels and Motels in India to the present entrepreneur designing and marketing exclusive tours to the INDIAN SUBCONTINENT for the demanding and extremely service conscious world travelers, I consider myself a merchant who knows how to market to the modern day consumer.

5. What is your most popular travel package and why?

Best of North India with Rajasthan: The Best of North India Tour of India is a delightful journey of magnificent Rajasthan, splendid heritage forts and palaces, pilgrimage places of North India and is also a fascinating visit to Taj Mahal. The tour starts with sightseeing of Delhi, peeps into the boat cruise and mesmerizing evening prayer ceremony at the River Ganges in Varanasi to The Exotic temples of Khajuraho, further to Gwalior and from there takes you into the gardens of Taj Mahal, Fatehpur Sikri of Agra, Amber fort of Jaipur and ends at the city of beautiful lakes & palaces. This trail of India is also filled with excitements that range from visiting Palaces and culture to involvement in shopping at every destination.

6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?

"As our family has just departed from the holidays, we wanted to take this opportunity to first thank you for the lovely complimentary meal that was arranged for us at the Estate hotel and the thoughtful gifts given to us, the beautiful scarf and the Genisha for good luck. The dinner at the Estate, we felt, was the best of our trip".

Dear Varsha,
My friends and I want to thank you for arranging our trip to India. We had a good time and appreciate getting to know your country and the ... view more people. I would like to give you a report about our experiences. First, the Compass representatives who met us at each city were polite, courteous and quite informative, especially Shailesh and Devi. I appreciated the care they extended to us; especially Mrs. Brown who was on oxygen during the whole trip; and me (at 87) having difficulty walking and climbing steps. The guides were also tops at what they do and again, especially Yatin.

They were considerate and worked with us as there were times we just couldn't do what was expected. I found them very respectful and kind to us. The driver (Murari) was again most courteous to us and helped us as much as he could. His driving was excellent and you know how difficult it is driving in your country. He was careful and superb how he managed. We enjoyed the sights we saw and of course the "Taj Mahal" was spectacular. So you can see we had good feelings about your service and the people you have representing your company. Once again I extend my thanks.

Dear Varsha,
It's been almost a week since we returned from our India journey. Thanks for all you did to make it a safe and enjoyable trip. The ... view more customized tour program worked very well for us. We were not pressured by a group-driven schedule. We received a lot of care and attention.

Pawan in Delhi and Agra outdid himself in making sure we were well take care of.
We are also grateful for the drivers who were always willing and able to transport us at a moment’s notice to wherever we want to go.
The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and skilled.

The greeters at the airport were welcoming and friendly. The train ride to Agra was wonderful as were the two flights in India.
Our stay in Varanasi was just about perfect.
Please convey our deep appreciation to the Compass India representatives, guides, drivers, and greeters. You all did a superb job in showing India off with style.
Best regards,
Lydia
