Coming from super bikes and super cars and now trying my hand at cycling regularly. We went with Unventured Expeditions, and extremely happy to say these are the guys to go with. Very professional and very informative and a great learning experience every time. All the very best guys…
Words can’t justify the excellent experience Unventured provides. They offer a wrapper of joyful experiences in a 4 hour-long journey. We were a group of friends new to cycling and they cross all the T’s and dot each I’s. From handpicking cycles to suit our height and comfort while making sure we are enthralled and captivated by the stories they churn out about the places we visit…
I joined the bicycle tour in Bangalore’s countryside led by Tej and it was an amazing trip. The mountain bicycles were all well maintained and suitable for the partially rough street conditions. Tej was keen on telling me everything she knows and could answer any kind of questions. In a nutshell if you are interested to see the Bangalore countryside and want to escape the city life, this trip is highly recommended…
Another great tour with Unventured. Guru took me on a ¾ day adventure just outside Bangalore, mixing up some cycling with a climb up to a hill fort. In total, we cycled 50 km on Unventured’s great mountain bikes that are well suited for the rural roads and villages outside the city. We go off our bikes and hit Svandurga, an old fort high up on a hiilside, that was quite a scramble…
Brilliant team of people who will ensure you will get the best possible experience whenever you go with them. They keep the group size small so as to ensure a personal touch to every individual. If you are a traveler at heart and want to venture out with like minded people then Unventured is the best choice for you.
