At Unventured our goal is to create unique offbeat experiences that engage the travellers and helps them soak in the local flavours, history, and culture of the region.
Our trails and activities can vary in its intensity based on the regions’ geographical variations in terrain, by its altitude and by the facilities and format. Some trails/activities can be more physically demanding than some others. To ensure you have a good knowledge and information about the intensity of the trail/activity, each of our trails have been graded across 3 levels of intensity.
NOTE: Our trail/activity intensity grading is only an indicator of the intensity levels. Always request for more information and ensure you speak to one of our representative who will interact with you to understand your physical abilities and suggest if the trail will be challenging and yet suitable for you.
Our high-intensity trails/activities are both physically and technically demanding. Knowledge of the activity must be at an advanced level. Duration of the activity is longer and hence more demanding.
Cycling: These will be longer duration trails suitable for people with more technical riding skills. You will be subjected to a whole day of cycling mostly with steep hilly incline sections. Distances covered can vary with the terrain and altitude of the region.
Hiking: More than 5-6 hours of hiking in a day. Distances covered can vary with the region, but the hike will be in steep inclines and not necessarily have well-paved paths.
Diving: Longer dive days with more technically demanding dive conditions. Water temperature and currents will determine the intensity of a dive tour.
Medium intensity trails/activities strike a good balance between physical activity and fun. The activity may still be longer full-day sessions, but will not be technically demanding although they can be physically demanding.
Cycling: The duration of the trail will be shorter and more suitable for people who are physically active with well-grounded basics in cycling. You may be subjected to a whole day of cycling with some hilly incline climbing sections. Distances covered can vary with the terrain and altitude of the region.
Hiking: More than 3-4 hours of hiking in a day. Distances covered can vary with the region, but the hike will involve some sections of climbing but this region will have better-paved pathways.
Diving: Diving in conditions that are physically tiring, but not technically demanding.
Our low-intensity trails/activities are ideal for beginners or individuals who are not intent on physically challenging themselves, but are keen on the Unventured way of travel, i.e. soaking in a region and all that comes with it. The activity may still be full-day sessions but can be done at a slower pace. The activity may also be spread over shorter sessions during the day.
Cycling: The duration of the trail will be shorter and suitable for people who know the basics of cycling. You may be subjected to a whole day of cycling but with a lot of breaks in between. Distances covered can vary with the terrain and altitude of the region.
Hiking: This entails more than 3-4 hours of hiking in a day. Distances covered will be very short and mostly as a activity, for example, exploring a temple complex/ historical site / nature reserve.
Diving: All our dive sessions are either classified medium or high and will not be graded low on intensity due to the physically demanding nature of the activity.
Had a lovely day listening to the amazing in depth knowledge Bala shared of all the attractions on the tour itinerary .... all day long ! His energy is amazing... read more and he is very friendly and kind. Such a day well spent and I totally recommend this tour to anyone wanting a private or group tour of Bangalore’s interesting places! He guides you with ease from place to place and I found myself wearing flower garlands in my hair and eating lunch off a banana leaf like a true local ! I learnt so much and he answered all my questions and waited patiently as I took a tone of photos along the way ! Loved every minute of it ! Highly valuable experience!
Today I experienced the Bengaluru Markets and did the “Pete” Walk.
From start to finish it was simply amazing. Our guide was Guru, super informative, very... read more friendly and his passion was clear to see. Being a local, he could tell you stay after story.
I was expecting this walk to be good, however it surpassed all expectations. Colours were insane, food markets, the endless flower markets, it was eye-opening. Our brunch stop was again incredible. We watched them make our Masala Dosa and I can honestly say it’s the best thing I’ve eaten since being here in Bangalore.
One final thing, at the end of the tour, I foolishly had no money on me. Struggling to find a cash machine, Tej, founder of the company, happily ordered me an Uber from her phone. Lifesaver!
Seriously, if you are in town and you want a true, local, traditional feel of Bangalore, there is nothing better than these guys.
The tour was lovely! Love the tour guide so caring and they have arrange a way to make it easier to visit with such young kids (toddler, baby and... read more a 10y old child)
My toddler had a coloring book,bananas, flowers and a ballon during the tour. She love it and kept saying Tuk! Tuk! all evening at home.
Thank you for making this tour magical!
I definitely recommend it.
Unventured as a tour company does a impeccable job and ensures they deliver the best guide service in the city. Niranjan had complete knowledge of city and showed us what... read more real Bangalore market is.
There is nothing like being on a bike to truly get a feel for Bengalore's organized chaos and untold traffic rules, ride thru neighborhoods and experience the local stand up... read more coffee places and traditional food. Along with that, Jyoti has a wealth of knowledge that spans from India history, Hinduism, local food and traditions, which make the visits super interesting.
Add her kindness to the mix, and you got yourself an "amazing day with Jyoti"
