About
Riding in a "tuk-tuk" (Autorickshaw) is a fun experience in itself and very unique to Asia. You can hop on and hop off at places of interest. You will be visiting some truly local and significant "Must see" spots along with a few off the guide book spaces that range from ancient temples, gothic churches, crafts markets, artisans, and a beautiful summer palace. This tour also includes a traditional southern Indian Brunch or Lunch which you can choose as you trail along. This is a guided experience and includes a meal. Note: Some of the tour attractions cannot be experienced on Sundays/ Public holidays as they would be closed, that being the silk weaving and dyeing units. However, we do have an alternative option to walk about the jewellers & crafts/fabric street/market and visit a unique temple known for black magic and voodoo.

Great way to experience and explore Bangalore
Mar 2020 • Solo
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 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!

Brilliant tour guide
Jan 2020
Whilst staying with our sons family in Bengaluru he arranged for us to go on the tuk tuk tour of central Bengaluru. We were met outside a metro station by Tarim, who seemed too young to know much about the city, but we were so wrong, he was extremely knowledgable and able to entertain us with all the facts about the various places we visited. 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.

The most authentic Bengaluru (history, culture, mythology) Tour!
Dec 2019 • Family
The ‘Bengaluru by tuk tuk’ tour by Unventured was a revelation, surprisingly, because I have lived in the city for many-many years now. Got to know of the ‘significant-spots’ in the city in a completely different light through the unhurried pace and fascinating stories and anecdotes by our amazing tour guide Tej about the history, culture, architecture, rituals and mythology of the places, monuments and the city, supported by hard facts and scientific basis.

From Tipu’s summer palace and stories of his innovations in battles to Kote Venkateshwara temple and how it resembles a human figure to the bustling city market with its aromas of spices, and colors and fragrances of flowers to jewelery-making and silk saaris and dyeing units to Vidhana Soudha to kali temple in a cemetery… it was a complete feast for the senses and the mind. ‘And what about the body?’ you ask. Well, there was a feast (almost)- a sumptuous meal, waiting for us at Bheema’s to end the tour! :)

A fun tour with great insights into the history and culture of the city of Bengaluru. Highly recommended!

If you truly want to understand Bangalore...
Dec 2019
We were in Bangalore to visit family and it was our local (expat) family that gave us this tour as a treat.

We were a party of 4 and we were met by 2 guides, Tej and Narendra. Tej grew up in the city and knows the place really well, not just it’s touristic credentials, but more impressively, she knows a great deal about the history that shaped the city to a present day vibrant meeting point for 13 million people. There was a bit of everything. We toured the streets in tuk tuk (or "autos" as we were told they are called here), fantastic way to experience the local traffic (if you don’t like chaotic traffic maybe you picked the wrong city), and started with a visit to Tippoo Sultan’s summer palace - visiting a place like this can sometimes be simplified down to some key nuggets about life at the time when the palace was first built and atrocities committed by along the way. But Tej uses the location to give an engaging description of the history of civilisation in this region, trading relations, colonialism, including episodes with the Portuguese, the French and the British (who are said to have a few relics from the time at the Victoria and Albert museum “for safe keeping”). And as if this wasn’t enough, we are then drawn by the sound of children singing in a neighbouring school; Tej interrupts the flow to put explain this school was no common school; we learnt how muppet leaders implanted by the East India Company worked with the colonisers to begin teaching English to people in the region - this school was nothing less than the first ever school to teach english in Bangalore, with the importance this had in creating the conditions that led to the city becoming the outsourcing capital of the world.

This style of story telling was present throughout the entire trip - both at more obvious sites such as the Kote Venkataramana Swamy Temple (one of the oldest shrines in Bangalore), the buzzing and vibrant flower market, street markets, silk and gold cottage industries, a couple of delicious meals along the way, and a visit to a temple in a cemetery - with a striking description of life as a lower class “untouchable”, their habits and struggles.

For a highly engaging experience of the startup city, experiencing a true assault to the senses, while getting critical insight into the Bangalore and the India of today we highly recommend the Unventured team.

A wealth of info, sights and sensory experience
Dec 2019
Guru was a wonderful tour guide!! He gave us a historical overview that provided a good background, which he later wove into several sights we visited. We saw so much of Bangalore in just one day. The flower market and fruit and vegetable markets were incredible sensory experiences. The dosa place prepared a yummy special dosa, perfect when followed by sweet, milky coffee. Guru was knowledgable, patient, and a charming guide.

Wonderful way to see (and understand) Bangalore!
Nov 2019
I have been to Bangalore several times for business, but have not had much time to really see the city, so signed up for the Unventured Tuk Tuk tour. It was absolutely the best way to see and really understand Bangalore. My guide, Tej, asked what I would be interested in seeing. The tour included some historical background of the city - visiting Titsu's Palace - visited a temple then headed to the flower market and had wonderful dosa brunch at a local spot tucked away in one of the markets. I loved the way Tej wove historical information, cultural and spiritual framework, and discussion of how people really live in Bangalore. I was by myself, but this would be a great thing for families or really anyone who wants to understand the "true Bangalore". Wonderful!

Auto riksja and walking tour
Fantastic way of exploring the inner city of Bangalore by tuk tuk and walking. Our guide mr. Niranjan and tuk tuk drivers took us on a rollercoaster adventure through busy streets, narrow alleyways and the flower market. We visited Tipu’s summer residence, got blessed at a Hindu temple and walked through the Bangalore Fort. Stopping at a local place for dosa along the way. Visiting silk and silk dying workshops. The walk through Cubbon park and stop at St.- Andrews Kirk ( church) ended the tour.
Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and very attentive. And we were not taken into tourist traps (shops) to buy anything! Definitely a tour to recommend to anyone who wants to experience Bangalore.

Highly Recommended Tour!
Sep 2019 • Solo
I enjoyed everything about this tour! Guru was an exceptional host, personable and extremely knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable right from the beginning, which is important to me as a solo woman traveller. He met me on time and then showed me all around the city by tuk tuk as promised. It was a nice surprise that he knew so much history and that he was able to relay it in a way that was informative but not boring. The end of tour meal was delicious. I especially appreciated the company’s all-inclusive policy of covering all the different costs so you don’t have to be reaching for money all the time. I initially thought that the cost of this tour for one person was high, But now feel that it was a good value! I would book another tour with Unventuree without hesitation.
