I can't say enough about these guys – they worked with our (changing) schedule, which changed about three times, handled changing numbers of people, and, when they found out we were arriving in the middle of the night, opened up the homes of one of their partners to us. On the trip, By day two, riding with Gurudeep A.k.a. guru felt just like riding with another friend of ours. Plus, when the dust got too much for my asthma Guru consulted his physician brother and we rode our bikes directly to a pharmacy! We LOVED our stay on a working vanilla plantation, add a wild game preserve, and seeing all the people and animals in the villages we rode through.

I did a half day city tour of Bengaluru with Tejaswini and it was brilliant!
As someone who doesn't really like "Temple" tours I really enjoyed it.
The guide listened to what my sort of interests were and tailored the tour accordingly, within the description of the tour of course.
The best part for me was the authentic Indian restaurant/café for lunch.
Tejaswini even organized a little tour of the kitchen with the owner where I saw how naan bread was made - simple yet fascinating.
I would definitely recommend using unventured!!!

A great way to escape the bustle of Bangalore and experience the countryside close up. I was picked up from my hotel at 06:30. We drove out of town and started with breakfast. The ride was not strenuous - about 25km with plenty of stops - and included:
- Nandi temple
- Silk farm
- Pottery
- Colonial railway station
- Marigold fields
- and many other points of interest...
The tour ended with a tasty lunch. Tej is a wonderful and knowledgable guide who makes you feel welcome and informed throughout. If you are not a regular cyclist don't be put off. The Nandi Hills ride is very gentle and truly unique. Do it!

The company offers many other tours that sound excellent.

Hi Jude,

Thank you for your kind words, we are thrilled to know you had a great time on the trail, it assures us that there is more to Bangalore than IT and we thank you for taking the time to explore our city with us. We are looking forward to have you join us on our other trails through India, Bhutan and Europe.

Thank you,

Wanted to do something fun and adventurous for our Anniversary. We came across Unventured through internet. The idea of tours on bi-cycle is really nice. It was totally a new and lovely experience. We enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Gurudeep is an excellent company to keep with. I was a little apprehensive about bicycling after almost 15 yrs. but he made sure I was totally comfortable. The Temple, the railway station, the age old tradition of silk extraction, all with their histories were really very interesting. Pottery was a real prize winner. Also we would like to thank our awesome hosts Praveen and Meera for the warm welcome and delicious food.
Thank you Unventured, specially Guru to have made our Anniversary so special. Totally worth it.

I did two tours with them with a group. The Bike Nandy tour was amazing, everybody loved it. And the same is true for the Bangalore Tuk-tuk tour. In addition, the guides were wonderful, understanding, on top of what they were doing. It was a memorable day. I will do it again next year with the next group!!
