Startup Adventoro Travel Technologies has officially launched Adventoro, a new online platform featuring adventure-based tours and activities in Malaysia. The platform aims at helping thrill-seekers and travelers from anywhere in the world to discover and book adventure-based tours and activities in Malaysia.
Spokesperson of the Petaling Jaya-headquartered said, its online platform curates hundreds of bucket-list worthy trips and experiences which are offered through "attractive" packages located in various destinations in Malaysia.
Currently, the platform has more than 400 tours and activities located at various destinations in Malaysia such as in Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi Island, Sabah and Sarawak. Adventoro plans to expand its listings to include tours and activities around Southeast Asia as soon as in early 2018.
A mobile-friendly web platform, Adventoro features six categories of tours and activities: Island, River and Watersports; Wildlife and Jungle; Culinary and Gastronomy; Caving and Hiking; Cultural and Traditional; and, Sightseeing and Attractions.
Adventoro was on beta for a few months prior to the official launch. Among top bestselling trips during that period were: White water rafting at Kampar River in Perak, Mount Kinabalu trek grand adventure; Cameron Highlands Rafflesia and mossy forest adventure; Taman Negara experience; Bako National Park overnight adventure; and; Langkawi kayaking at Mangrove Forest Reserve.
Adventoro caters to both individual travelers, as well as groups such as companies that want to plan a trip for employees. Other than the listings, Adventoro also provides concierge service to allow users get in touch with its team for various reasons such as to make a special request for their trip and get more information. Users also have options to contact Adventoro via email, telephone, WhatsApp or a web-based live chat.
Ken Lau (pictured second from left), founder and CEO of Adventoro said, “What we’ve learned so far is that about 90% of transactions had at least one question asked to us. So it is important for us to give concierge service a priority.[...].We curate our listings and handpick tours and activities that fit into our niche of adventure. We are working to get our listings to be more than 500 in total for Malaysia by end of this year.”
Lau added the team will work on growing Adventoro to "become a leading go-to platform for adventure-based tours and activities in the diverse beautiful region of Southeast Asia. We start off with Malaysia and soon we want to bring on tours and activities around the region.”
