We had an outstanding experience to our trip to India over the Xmas and New Years holiday. The itinerary, the planning, the accommodations, and all the members of the Compass team helped to make this a very memorable experience. The guides were extremely knowledgeable and the drivers were amazing. I highly recommend Compass for anyone wanting a similar experience.

Our trip to India was outstanding due to the fantastic coordination of Compass to arrange everything and have everyone at the time and place they were expected to be. Not only was everyone extremely helpful they were friendly and accommodating in every possible manner. We expected this to be a good trip but never did we expect such phenomenal hotels, places to tour and guides and drivers to have.

My wife and I, thought the whole trip was wonderfully organized and handled totally professional. We were completely at ease during our trip. Our hats are off to all guides and drivers and to the wonderful tour group in Delhi and NY.

We booked a private tour for two with Compass for November. We had a great adventure touring northern India (Delhi, Varanasi, Khajuraho, Agra, Bharatpur, Jaipur, and the Pushkar Camel Fair). The Compass staff was fantastic. After many itinerary changes during the planning process due to our scheduling requests, they put together a an exciting and informative tour. Everyone was very helpful, and we appreciated that our drivers, local guides and felicitation agents were always available to assist us. The best test of tour company is how they respond when something goes wrong. From doctor's visits to delayed flights, the Compass staff always ensured we were safe happy. They were able to alter our trip itinerary accordingly, to ensure we were able to receive the best experience. When we booked our tour we were a bit nervous that there were few reviews online. We would not hesitate to book them again or to recommend them to others.

I used Compass for my trip to India. Compass planned the entire trip within India for 10 days, covering New Delhi, Kerala and Mumbai. I felt that Compass considered my budget and were totally flexible in meeting my requirements. Compass coordinated the travel schedules and made sure that I was greeted at each stop and felt secure. I will recommend using Compass for all your travel within India.

I have only the highest praise for the professionalism, rigor, and pleasant demeanor of all those associated with Compass. From Tanvi the precise tour planner, to Radhika the always available crisis manager, to our deeply knowledgeable and compassionate guides like Sarub and Rakesh, and even our quietly wise drivers Sonum and Ashok, we were always cared for, planned for, and respected. Thank you all.

My family and I have used Compass India Inc. for several trips and we are always pleased with their high level of service. For first-timers exploring India or for returners who require travel assistance, Compass comes strongly recommended. The staff is very attentive and has many checks in place to ensure that travelers are comfortable and cared for. I travelled to India for a month in December with a fairly complicated (and every changing) itinerary with multiple people and places. I purchased an inexpensive mobile phone to keep in touch with the Compass staff which was helpful throughout the duration of my trip. India can be a chaotic place to navigate (even for locals) and yet it can cast a magic spell on those who are open to it. Compass not only takes care of the hassles, they help to ensure that everyone's India experience is incredible!

Dear Compass India, I wanted to write to you for longest time but was caught up with other things, I apologize for that. First, I would like to thank you for the excellent job you have done for my trip from planning to booking and to addressing to my needs. Everything worked out as planned. I was bit nervous as it was my first India trip with my in-laws. I thought it would be tough dealing with two different generations (in-laws and kids) but all the arrangement you made, made it easy on my part to make it a grand success. It was very comfortable at every level from arrival to departure. Meeting with compass reps. was very thrilling. They made it easy with all necessary information. Having a guide who can speak different languages made it even easier for kids to understand our history. They were fascinated by the beauty of Kutab Minar, Taj Mahal, Agra Fort, and Palaces in Jaipur. I would like to express my 'Thank you' to you and your staff members who made my trip very memorable. My family will remember this trip for rest of our lives. Every thing worked out well. I have recommended your site and service to most of my friends abroad and in India. Thank you again and please share this e-mail with your staff. Take care.

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 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.

It has been a week since our return from India. I want to thank you for all that you have done to make our touring of India very enjoyable, accomodating and above all highly enriching. Your staff was most helpful in countless ways from initial meetings at each hotel, airports to follow up phone calls.  The hotels each had a different "personality" and charm. Some as Coconut Lagoon and Radisson were elegant.

Likewise, each guide provided us with in debth and interesting facts to make us more understanding of the Indian culture, history and way of life. They also were open to our many questions about what was seen as we traveled from place to place.

I want to give particular special mention to our two drivers, Murari (Dehli, Agra & Jaipur) and Balla ( Chennai, Mama...&Pondicsherry). Both were excellent safe drivers and most attentive to our needs. But Balla really went out of his way to help us  by offering suggestions to make our days more workable in terms of place, time logistics. I could go on but I think you get the message that We( I feel I can speak for all) had a memorable time in India and have come home with many memories of the Indian  people as well as the places visited. Truly we can say Incredible India!!!

I will not hesitate recommending Compass to any of my friends who wish to come to India.

Thanks again and it was a real pleasure meeting you.

I especially want to thank the tour guides that showed us your great country, and the drivers were excellent.
I will treasure all the memories that i experienced in your country.
Our lunch with you made it real, as we could put a face to you, after much communication.

Hope all is well in Delhi. Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner but Chelsea and I have been off the grid the past couple of weeks in Africa.

Anyways, I wanted to share the pictures I took and see if you wanted me to upload hi-res assets for you 2012 catalogue.

Honestly, being away for a couple weeks we both realize how much we enjoyed our time in India. 

Look forward to hearing back from you,

Thank you for a wonderful experience in India!  It was everything we imagined it would be, and more.  All the Compass representatives, guides, and drivers were very welcoming, and the guides in particular were exceptional.  We learned so much from them.  The itinerary worked very well, and we loved what we were able to see.  We will certainly recommend Compass to anyone planning a trip to India.

Many thanks again for all your help in putting this extraordinary trip together.  We have wonderful memories and look forward to returning!

It was a great trip to India!  Thank you so much for the work you did including me at the last minute on what was an already pre-set trip.  The Bollywood tour was great fun; the guide was terrific.  I hope you hire him again.

Thanks for the assistance.  Good luck with business this coming year.

I'm embarrassed that I haven't written sooner. We got home to the busy Christmas season, and then, I was off to Paris to work, but there is no excuse. I should have told you right away what a wonderful trip we all had. All the support, the drivers, guides, the cell phones, the hotels, the houseboats...everything was wonderful. The six of us had a most memorable stay in India thanks to you!

We all took lots of pictures, and I'm going through them to put together a small selection to share with you. Stay tunes. It may take a while, but I'm working on it.

Thank you and your whole team for being so wonderful, responsive, and caring. We don't have enough praise for you all. The trip surpassed our expectations!

I want to thank you, your company and your staff for a wonderful trip our family had to Delhi, Bangalore,Mysore,Kabini and Goa. Your ground services, hotels, car and the driver were excellent. I would especially like to express our gratitude to the driver Vinod in Karnataka as well as your Operations Executive Vinod Yadav in Delhi. Vinod went above and beyond in Delhi in helping us when we landed in Delhi as well as when we left Delhi.  We have used your services before and we will use it again. I find your prices very competitive, service excellent and dependability incredible.
Last, but not least, I want to thank you for being thorough in planning our itinerary and your patience in accommodating out ever changing plans. Hope to talk to you soon.

We have just arrived home after our time in India.  We enjoyed every minute of our trip.  The guides were fantastic and our driver Mr. Jagroop Chand was amazing.  When we were traveling without a guide he was the guide and pointed out things along the way.  he was always concerned about our every need.  We had a fabulous time.

I echo Charlie's comments. As you may recall, I had a certain amount of anxiety about traveling with our two daughters, particularly after the tragedy of Mumbai. Your reassuring words alleviated all my concerns and made us realize this was a trip that we had to take - and we are so happy we did. The beauty of India and its people will stay with us all for the rest of our lives. Thank you!!

how are you doing?
Excuse me for taking so long before replying to your e-mail. Life was hectic coming home and getting back to normal.

Ii am very pleased with how Compass India organized everything. Your company did exactly what it said it would do and things went very smooth. I would certainly recommend your company to others that are looking for a travel agent in India. We had a truly excellent driver, very skill full besides being a pleasant person to have in the car. So you have two very content customers. You gave me good advice and were easy to work with. I found India a fascinating place, very vibrant and full of life. I hope I will get another chance in my life time to visit your country. For me being a vegetarian, it is paradise. I have never been anywhere where I have so many and such excellent choices in food.

I wish you the best, take care

I am finally back to my office in Italy.  I would like to thank you because I had a very good time in North India and I found your tour very well organised.  If you need whatsoever feedback from me, I would be happy to provide it! Kind regards,

 I have just noticed a Guest Feedback Form among my trip papers.

Your organization of our trip was impeccable.  We saw everything we planned to see and had a lot of fun doing it despite somewhat going over our budget.  This was my second visit to India, with the first one to the south part of the country in 1991.  Our trip to Rajasthan this year was so superior in avoiding travelers' wear-and-tear that I wouldn't even consider further India excursions without prior contacting Compass India Inc.  I have highly recommended your organization to all my friends and colleagues.
I will be happy to complete any feedback questionnaire.  Please place it in the body of your email as my computer refuses to open any attachments.

I wanted to thank you for planning an amazing trip. The itinerary could not have been better (I really wish I had more days!).  Bhawani was WONDERFUL! He took his time to educate me and allowed me to get a glimpse into Indian culture, lifestyle and experience.  I never felt rushed or felt uncomfortable, it was great to have someone so courteous and knowledgeable alongside throughout the trip, he is a great guide. 

 I am also convinced that Rajesh is the safest driver of India.  It's beyond my comprehension how one can feel safe in a car in your country, but thanks to Rajesh, I certainly did!   I will highly recommend your company upon my arrival to NY.  Thank you for a wonderful trip! Jane.

Just wanted to say Thank You for a fantastic holiday. Mrs Brown and I enjoyed every moment ...all the hotels were superb and everything was very glitches anywhere. You did a great job of planning and organising everything.
Also a big Thanks to our driver Vinod who is a delightful young man. His driving was careful and he is efficient and always on time. Really a pleasure to have with us.

I know Mrs Brown is thinking to return again in the spring and I have also recommended you to another friend of mine...Mrs Geraldine Boss, who is interested to make the same trip as we did. I am sure she will be in touch very soon. Once again, many many thanks and we will certainly continue to use our company next time we visit India.

We are writing to express our heartfelt gratitude for the superb and outstanding service you arranged for our first trip to India. How serendipitous to find you on the Internet on a sleepless night! I researched and scrutinized over a dozen tour companies including Sita, Cox & Kings, Abercrombie Kent, Himalayan and General Tours. Most offered similar itineraries and hotels but few would accommodate our specific needs. Only Compass could offer a private high-end tour at low-end group tour prices.

Compass has set a new standard in the travel industry. You have distinguished yourself from your competitors as being the leader in PERSONAL SERVICE. Referring to the clients as "your guests", it is apparent that you embrace the philosophy of Hospitality. In our view, Compass is an exceptional value; attractive packages that are palatable to the discerning travelers' tastes and financially digestible to the cost-conscious.

Warmest and best regards,

I hope you are well! 

Nik and I are still recovering from the Wedding Extravaganza, and of course, I have been running mad because I had to take care of some critical things about my future in surgery.

Anyway, now that things are a tad bit less lunatic-- perhaps we can meet some time this week for coffee or something-- let's say-- thursday morning or something?

The trip was absolutely phenomenol.  I think the only slight complaints came from the first hotel we stayed at (the clarion) and the phone not being accessible for a long time, but other than that-- the trip went off without a hitch and everyone had a great time.  It was really a testament to all your hard work and meticulous planning.
Please let me know when you'll be free for a bit; my "husband" and I would love to finally meet you! 

Warm regards,

My trip to India was absolutely WONDERFUL to say the least!!!  My requested iternary was followed through to the exact.  My hotels and meals were beyond expectations. I especially loved the Golden Temple in Amritsar and the Hindu temples in Madurai.  My drivers were absolutely the best and the guides were the greatest as they all wrote down everything for me because I had a problem understanding the English accents due to my hearing handicap.  Not one of them had a problem writing the info down.  As a matter of fact, several of them wrote the info down the night before and then I could read it before the tour.  They were SUPER!!!
I will highly recommend Compass Tours to anyone and you certainly may use my name as a reference.

Thank you so much, Shweta, for your time and patience on planning my wonderful, unforgettable trip to India.

Thank you for the excellent service you all provided to my tour participants on our recent South India tour.  It was greatly appreciated by all.  You went out of your way at times to make things work. We also appreciated the expert help in Madurai.  Luke was an exceptional guide to the temple and you can send him my compliments.  We got along fine in Bangalore as well.  I will certainly call upon you again for help with my tours and travel needs.
