Unventured Way of Travel
Experiential travel is exciting travel. It’s a way of experiencing the city/country through its culture, history and people combined with your senses of sight, smell, touch and others. Don’t be mistaken, it doesn’t mean missing out on sites like the Taj Mahal; in fact, it means having it all! Experiencing local and seeing wonderful things!
Today, experiential travel is booming as travellers are no longer satisfied with passively touring through scenic locales and seek active participation in local cultures.
Recent trends also show that the majority of the crowds are opting for tour packages that involve food tours, heritage walks, sunset cruises, snorkelling, kayaking, visiting local markets and hiking experiences. There is a need to strike the right balance between exploring popular locations while also partaking in local cultures, foods, rituals and practices.
And Unventured is a company that specialises in offering experiential travel experiences.

Our ages ranged from 75 down to 10 but he held everyone’s attention.
We will always remember the tour for an amusing incident. We arrived at a Hindu temple quite early and the place where you left your shoes was not yet open. Train said it would be ok to leave our shoes just by the door as the lady who looked after them would soon arrive and take them in. When we ended our trip round the temple we looked for our shoes only to find that 4 pairs were missing, including Tariqs. After a short time he arranged for the tuk Tuks to come and fetch us and take us to a shoe shop. We then were asked to choose some new shoes and his tour company would cover the cost.
We were take to a flower market which was fantastic, and Tarim gave our two grandchildren 100 rupees each to see who could strike the best deal for some flowers.
Then we went to a Dosa restaurant down a little back alley. Little bit worrying, but it was great and the dosas were lovely.
We ended with a walk through Cubbon Park which was incredible if just for the banyan trees.
Overall great trip, very enjoyable and highly recommended.
