Bengaluru’s origins in its etymology is known as the city of boiled beans, synonymous with being the technology hub and start-up capital of the east. Bengaluru is a melting pot of culture bustling with a huge migrant population of ex-pats, locals from the region, and people from various part of the country.
Bangalore has a unique and colourful history that dates back to 750 AD with a vibrant local culture and fantastic local food to savour.
At Unventured, we offer a host of active and culturally inclusive tours of the fabulous city of Bengaluru through stories. Our guides are the locals from the region, speak fluent English and take time to understand your interests to make your experience interactive, safe, regional, and genuinely authentic. We go beyond the Lonely Planet or TripAdvisor recommendations, to offer some unique and bona fide experiences that give travellers a sneak peek of what it is to live in a country like India and more specifically in Bengaluru
My daughter and I did the Unventured ‘Bengaluru through it’s markets tour’ and ‘Good Morning Bengaluru cycling trail’ -they were fantastic. The difference with Unventured is that you feel like a local friend is showing you their city. You get lots of history interesting facts and they take you to local places that you would never find yourself- like a street where cows are milked every morning and a step back in time to real artisans dying and weaving Sarees. Couldn’t recommend Unventured highly enough.
I so enjoyed my tour of Bangalore with unventured expeditions. We visited Pete Markets, got a flower bracelet and bangles and saw the flower, spice, fruit and veg markets. Next was a visit to a Hindu temple where the architecture of Hindu temples and history of Hinduism was explained. We visited Tipu’s summer palace and also saw silk cloth being dyed and woven. The masala dosa was delicious, hot and cheap! I highly recommend this tour for anyone who says there is nothing interesting in Bangalore!
Real experience of Bangalore. Tej was an amazing tour guide. If you want a really authentic trip in Bangalore to see the local sights (not your usual tourist traps) then this is the trip for you. Excellent value including transportation to different places, food and lots of historical insights. Would highly recommend and only wish could do more. Overall this is the best thing I’ve done in Bangalore in the 6 weeks I’ve been here, and will most likely do another Unventured tour at some point in the rest of my time here.
We were looking for a safe tour to see Bengaluru and we found a gem here. We started at the Tipu Palace, moved to a Temple, and flower market. Guru provided an excellent blend of his history and cultural knowledge that entertained us all. We enjoyed it so much that my wife, who did not have to work while we were here went back for a art- based solo, custom tour with Tejaswini. It, too was very informative. The meals served both days were a real treat as well. We would highly recommend it.
