Tourists look for more real-life and authentic experience these days

real-life and authentic experience these daysFor long, holidaying and tourism has been in the grip of economic thinking and sociological research. But now tourists themselves are more entwined in every way with their holiday destination. Tourists are the ones who can sense emotions; neither the society nor the tourism industry can. Tourists take what is given to them and then turn it into their own ends.

Many travellers and mostly all tourists are very much interested in finding things and phenomena at their destinations that are authentic for that area. This comprises one of the basic conditions of a holiday because the tourist finds himself in an area that’s different from his home environment and he wants to experience things that are authentic of that area.

More and more travelers these days are yearning for “authentic” travel experiences, a trend that experts say that are into the hands of experienced, high-touch travel agents who can help consumers sift through vast array of opportunities that this world offers. According to Gary Portuesi, managing director of New York City-based Authentic Italy, a boutique operator that caters specifically to this niche, “There has been an ongoing evolution away from being a tourist, toward being more of a traveler.”
