Urban Adventures is about a new style of travel experience for those who want to get off the beaten path and really connect with a destination. The experience can be as short as a couple of hours, or a whole day, but in every case our Urban Adventures tours take travellers to interesting places to meet locals, and to really see what makes a place tick.
We are a franchise-based business that seeks out existing high-quality tour operators in each destination, with every Urban Adventure designed to give travellers a unique insight into the destination, as well as to support local communities, cultures, and environments. Urban Adventures are fun, insightful, and truly a Best. Day. Ever. travel experience. We market our tours both regionally and globally.
We are a division of Intrepid Travel (http://intrepidtravel.com/) a leading experiential tour company to over 70,000 travellers annually.
Urban Adventures is filling a gap in the market for a global day tour provider. But more importantly, our adventures are designed to provide a real experiential tour with an authentic element of local interaction. Our tours have a low impact on the environment, frequent local, independent businesses, and use local public transport options wherever possible.

Our target market is anyone looking for an authentic and affordable day trip or activity in one of our great operating cities around the world. Ideally, our customers would have an interest in sustainable tourism and experiential travel.
Urban Adventures promotes responsible local travel. We seek to work with partners who have our shared values and similar demographics:
Shared values - We are into win-win partnerships and want to work with organisations that share our mission to build a sustainable tourism industry. We believe this will protect and enhance our brand - as well as that of our partners - over time.
Similar demographics - We market to the independent traveller market, with an emphasis on those who want to get under the skin of a city, away from the tourist sites. These travellers include those interested in cultural tourism, culinary tourism, eco-tourism, agro tourism, heritage tourism, adventure tourism, geotourism, volunteer tourism, and responsible travel. In short, they want to authentically connect with the people, culture, and places in the country where they are travelling.
