Individuals travelling, frequently think that it’s hard to seek places and find nearby amenities, and this issue even looks greater when we cannot talk the neighbourhood dialect. Additionally while travelling in groups, individuals like exploring different places and may get lost, which again wind up troublesome for their companions individuals to find different individuals from the group. Touristo is a project about building up an android-based application in the field of travel and tourism. Android is a Google-developed programming language for mobiles and tablets. Additionally, Firebase is a real-time database which is utilized for information stockpiling and handling. Hence using the features provided, we intend to develop the application. By examining the above issues and different others, we are taking this venture with the goal to develop such application to overcome above issues and serve clients better.
