Abstract

Travel guidebooks are one of many information sources available to potential and actual tourists and perhaps one of the most common. Although information search has been an extensively researched area in tourism studies, there are few studies which have specifically investigated the topic of travel guidebooks. The overall aim of the present exploratory study is to develop a better understanding of the use of travel guidebooks as a source of information by tourists.
