Post covid, the tourism industry is reviving and the travel companies in Maharashtra are witnessing an uptick in booking trends. We are certain that all our forthcoming roadshows in the country will get a great response from the citizens.”
Maharashtra as a state offers unlimited opportunities for tourists to explore. The state has great connectivity by railways, roadways, and airways, which cater best to both domestic and international travelers.
