My family recently did a 3 hour cycle ride around Hesserghettq lake. Tej was an excellent guide- She was patient, kept us safe, really friendly and knowledge about the area.... read more Everything was very organised and well planned. They provided great snacks and we stoped for coffee along the way, and ended with a much needed coconut water. The scenery throughout is beautiful and peaceful, going through little villages and passing lots of farm land. It felt like we had truly escaped the city for a few hours. I highly recommend the tour.
This is the second time I was a part of an Unventured expedition. A friend and I decided to partake the Makalidurga Fort Hike. Like the last trip I took... read more with Unventured which was the Nandi Hills cycling tour, everything was very well organized. Our guide Guru was enthusiastic, professional and friendly. I did not expect the hike to be on such rocky terrain or to be so steep. I am apprehensive of slippery rocks and steep heights. However I have to commend our guide here for the extent of his encouragement. He literally goaded me and pulled up up to the fort and assisted me a great deal while descending as well. The terrain was frankly difficult for me and terrifying at times. I only wish a bit more description of what to expect from the terrain was given. Still, as with Unventured tours it was an experience to remember for a lifetime. The fort, the temple on top and the views were spectacular as was the surrounding forest and the nature that we saw. In the end the sense of exhilaration is enormous. I got what I came for. Thank you Unventured Tours.
We did a 3 hours cycling tour around Hesserghetta lake with Tej. There were 2 children with us (under 5 yrs). Tej and Swathi, right from the beginning understood our... read more requirements, addressed our questions promptly, were there on time and fantastically organised this for us.
Strongly recommended if you want to plan an outdoor excursion in and around Bangalore with them. They plan very well - everything right from the cycles provided with safety seats for children, to refreshments on the route - was well thought through and executed.
Unventured curated this 3-hour fabulous cycling get away for me and my wife at Nandi Hills for our anniversary. A pleasant and rejuvenating experience so memorable!
Big thanks to... read more Guru and Niranjan for the diligent planning and follow-up to ensure they had all the information and inputs, very professional i should say. The best part of this 20kms cycling trip was the special brunch and chocolate cake they organised for us at Nandi Railway Station below this huge tree!
A special mention of Mahadesh from their team who was also very helpful with getting us the cycles to the start point and arranging the picnic basket with all safety and hygiene protocols followed.
Truly cherish this trip for a life-time!
My friends and I did the Nandi Cycle trail on the 16th of August 2020. This being my first cycle trail in over 15 years, i was a bit... read more nervous. Having said that, Tej and Guru did a good job in giving me helpful tips and making me comfortable.
The trail in itself was moderate yet very scenic, it was a pleaure to have a nice group for friendly riders to ride along. Guru has vast knowledge on the places that we visited during the 20Km trail and did not hesitate in answering any of our queries.
I definitely look forward to joining them in their next adventure.
