Conceptual Approaches to Visitor Evaluation

“Souls that have toiled and wrought and thought with me”
  • Philip L. Pearce
Part of the Recent Research in Psychology book series (PSYCHOLOGY)


The goal of this chapter is to define some key concepts which help explore and explain the tourism-psychology interface. The concepts to be discussed apply to different levels or stages of the tourist phenomenon. They will be presented in order from those concerned with pre-travel factors, those relating to the on-site experience of the tourists and those directed towards post-travel processes and experience.
