Unventured is a way of life and really began with our love for travel and discovering places. One of the corner stones to the Unventured way of travel is a sustainable eco responsible way of travel. At Unventured we are learning the ropes of sustainable ways to travel and eco tourism initiatives that empower locals, helping them build sustainable lives and educate travellers about eco friendly practices that contain pollution caused by tourism.
The “Travelling Green” blog is a way for us to share our ideas and initiative in following a sustainable form of travel and also to encourage fellow travellers to adopt these simple yet effective practices for a greener future and in the quest to leave no mark behind on the places we travel to. At Unventured we are committed to creating a better future for the world and want to impact and influence the lives of our future generation.
If you wish to share ideas to help us travel sustainably and responsibly please share with us your ideas and we’d love to implement them as part of our going green initiative. Just email us with your idea or entry: email@example.com

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.
Another great tour with my friends at Unventured!
Guru took me on 3/4 day adventure just outside of Bangalore, mixing up some cycling with a climb/scramble up to a hill-top... read more fort, and then back into the city for a late lunch.
Hotel pickup was at 6am Saturday morning.
Drove about an hour out of town, and then commenced cycling. We had a beautiful day for it. In total, we cycled 50km on Unventured's great mountain bikes that are well suited for the rural roads and villages outside of the city.
At about the 3/4 mark of the ride, we got off our bikes and hit Savandurga, an old fort high up a hillside, that was quite a scramble. Then back on to finish our ride, and then drove back into the city for some beers and a biryani lunch.
- This is my weekend exercise in the middle of a business trip, and I always love it.
- Stopped at Dodda Aalada Mara, a huge 400-year old banyan tree spread over 3 acres.
- Great views overlooking the Manchanabele reservoir.
- Scrambling up the hill at Savandurga, the largest monolithic hillock in Asia. Great views here, too, overlooking the plains, river and other hills.
As always, Guru is great fun to adventure with. Funny and engaging, and with an amazing knowledge of the countryside, birds and all. No pressure on the cycling apart from that which you bring with you yourself - which is always much appreciated.
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.
