AudioCompass, started by Gautam Shewakramani began as a physical audio guide business – in partnership with the Archaeological Survey of India before evolving into a mobile app putting together phone tour guides, containing 1000+ audio clips narrated by local, expert guides.
While the app itself is free to download, the users need to pay for the audio tour guide for a POI (Point of Interest). The company’s service spans across prominent sites in India such as the Agra Fort, Taj Mahal, Khajuraho etc.
