Simultaneously, BLive EV Tours offer curated, authentic, and immersive local tours to encourage travellers to explore a pandora of hidden gems, in different parts of the country.

In the scenario of the phase-wise unlock in the country, many travellers and riders are inclining towards the idea of domestic travel now, more than ever. Besides, people's enlarged appetite to travel after the lockdown has also carved out a feasible and timely launchpad for the company to take a leap forward, towards an unchartered horizon. With tourist trends rising in several locations like Goa, Jaipur, Ooty and Chikmagalur amid others, the firm's ambition has only strengthened, to scale its visionary concept.
