Urban Adventures are for those who want to get away from the tourist crowds and really connect with a city, with a local by their side. The experience can be as short as a couple of hours, or as long as a whole day, but in every case the Urban Adventures tours take travellers to interesting places to experience local culture and see what makes a place unique.
Urban Adventures was launched by Intrepid Travel, the global leader in delivering sustainable, experience-rich travel and WHL Group in October 2009. Setting out to create a new style of travel experience that takes travellers away from touristic norms to areas where they can really connect with a destination on a local level.
Every tour has a story to tell. Not just the story of the city, but the story of the people who call it home. That’s why, on Urban Adventures tours, you won’t just see the sites from behind a bus window. The company is all about stepping into the community, and understanding how they, as guests, can better connect with a place and its people. They are about tasting, touching and smelling the city, about hearing the tales straight from the people who live there. And about seeing the world in a whole new way. ‘Locals know’ is the brand promise of Urban Adventures. The company doesn’t just show you the cultural and natural heritage in the destinations, but also help you to get to know the destination from a local perspective. However, Urban Adventures would never compromise the needs of local communities to meet the needs of international visitors. The company always respects local customs and cultures.
At Urban Adventures, ‘responsible tourism’ isn’t just a marketing catch phrase or box they tick. It’s at the heart of everything they do, from how they design their tours, to who they employ, to where they grow their business. All the tours are designed to minimise negative impacts on the natural environment. That’s why the group tours are run with a maximum of 12 participants and most of them are walking tours. If transport is needed, public transit is primarily used as well as high-efficiency vehicles for areas where no public transport is available.
