Ms. VARSHA MUKHERJEE
Varsha belongs to Jhansi, a city in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Jhansi grew in popularity during the reign of the Marathas because of the heroics of its valiant queen, Rani Lakshmi Bai. Varsha graduated from the Uttar Pradesh University and completed her masters in tourism from the state of Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh.
She believes that to be successful in the area of tourism, one need’s to enjoy working with people and be able to think on your feet. Travelling helps in learning about the host of well known and even the not so well known travel destinations. This is what she believes helps her in designing a tour, including the right destinations reflecting culture, religion, charming cities and adventure.
She is a methodical tour planner and is extremely helpful to her guests. The only other thing that she loves as much as travelling is writing. She brings with her six years of experience in tour planning and is currently involved in the research and development of new markets for our specialist Indian tour agency.
PROFESSIONAL INDIA TOUR OPERATOR - TRAVEL AGENCY INDIA
In her own words, “The greatest reward is the repeat and referral business developed from client relationships. This is my motive and I look forward to it. I really feel as if I've made the right career choice. My travel clients become my friends and some of them treat me like family.''
Varsha strongly believes that success relies on professionalism, integrity and discipline. She always makes an effort in explaining everything to everybody. She played a major role in the setting up of our UK satellite office. As a highly professional India tour operator, Compass would not have been what it is today without her.
Ms. ANCHAL SUMAN -
Anchal has always been in love with travel, visiting many different places with her parents from a very young age. That is what led to her pursue an MBA in TOURISM.
Anchal’s popular for two things here at Compass, her sense of humour and her knowledge of Geography. How much she loves travel is apparent from the fact that she was the highest scorer in her class and was picked up by MAKE MY TRIP from the college campus.
TRAVEL AGENCY INDIA - SPECIALIST INDIAN TOUR AGENCY
However, she wasn’t satisfied with the mundane airline travel booking job since she was capable of and aspired to do much more. She was at a cross roads but wasn’t really looking for a change when COMPASS found her. As a specialist India tour operator, our ideas and vision matched, so it was not very difficult to get her on board.
According to Anchal, different places, people and their culture always fascinated her and it does open your mind to a way of life practised millions of miles away from your home. She says working at Compass was one of the best decisions she’s ever taken, we say for her expertise, sincerity and those clever one liners, we’re lucky to have her.
Ms. ANUPAMA -
A graduate in Science with majors in Zoology, Biology and Chemistry from University of Lucknow, she too went ahead and completed her MBA in TOURISM from the same university. It was one great leap to switch over from the field of Science to Tourism, but when Anupama made up her mind she went on to achieve her goal with ease and excellence.
Reason enough for her to be here in COMPASS. She’s a fabulous travel consultant, one of the best we have - one of the warmest persons you will ever come across.
She is in charge of new destinations and the yearly travel budget for our team members. In her own words - "I love to explore a destination rather than just visiting it" - she is clinical in tour planning and good with finance. We are sure that her science background helps her always. Before joining our specialist Indian tour agency she was working with the Taj Group of Hotels, in the operations department, which is why she understands our guests so well. She joined Compass India with a belief that she will get a platform to fulfil her dreams about her profession and she says that’s exactly how things are unfolding.
Ms. SUKRITI KAPOOR -
She belongs to the Holy City Varanasi. (She insisted we write this) Sukriti left a very promising career in hotel industry to join COMPASS. She is a hotel management degree holder from the best institute in India and had everything going for her with her job at the Taj Group of Hotels. As a senior manager, handling Front Office and training she was billed as the next "future manager" of TAJ. She spent three great years with them but wanted to see more of INDIA and the world.
It was a day of great pleasure when she expressed her interest in joining COMPASS and explained that having worked for best company in the hotel industry, she now wanted to work for the best India travel agent
and India tour operator.
(In her words again) The operations department is always on "tenterhooks" since Sukriti is known as one of the strictest managers in the hotel industry and knows the inside-out of all reservation departments and reports. Her experience in training has helped us a lot and her dedication to work always means hassle-free travel for COMPASS guests.

Vaishali hails from India. Although she was born in Chennai, South India, she was brought up in Calcutta, while her roots are in Maharashtra. Her multi-ethnic background automatically makes Vaishali multi-lingual. She is fluent in English, Hindi, Marathi, Bengali and Spanish!
Doing justice to her warm, vibrant nature, and a permanent curiosity for knowing places and creative things - Vaishali took up Hotel Management - a path which was unconventional, compared to the Medical and the Engineering fields popular at that time.

She’s worked with the Radisson Edwardian Hotels in London as well as with a renowned strategic events company in Spain, where she’s been living for the last two years.

While in London and Spain, Vaishali realised that she missed the “Indian - ness” of her environment and having a natural flair for travel and tourism she delighted in sharing her knowledge of the country. She loves to learn about new cultures, countries, and might we say, is an enthusiastic tour advisor. Her love for India is what brought her to Compass, where she has been able to follow her passion for travel, while sharing her love for her nativeland. Vaishali's exuberance and chirpiness, even in the face of adversity, never fails to bring a smile on her co-worker's faces.
Vaishali believes that perfecting the art of hospitality involves commitment and an irresistible obsession, which should be strong and passionate- something that has to come from within! A genuine empathy towards people even makes guests feel that she is like a friend. Her knowledge of India and whichever city she has visited, secret shopping haunts - even authentic eating houses will help you make the most of you trip to India.
