Tour guiding research: insights, issues and implications

Research output: Contribution to journalLiterature reviewCommunication


The book Tour guiding research – insights, issues and implications by Betty Weiler and Rosemary Black is a most welcome contribution to the specific research field of guided tours within tourism studies. It sets forth to “give an authoritative state-of-art review of the scholarly literature on tour guiding theory and practice to stimulate further research […] and to foster quality tour guiding” (p. 177). The authors provide an excellent review, and the book is a must read for researchers and academic practitioners, for whom it will become a necessary point of reference
