 Ilham Junaid

Abstract


Abstract: The aims of this research are 1) to study the advantages of students’ tour through modification of activities; 2) to analyse tourism themes or topics to support the learning process; and 3) to recommend efforts in optimising students learning through tourism tours. A qualitative approach was employed in this study. The data were collected through interviews and observation. The research indicates that innovative learning through modifying the tour has encouraged students to learn theories or concepts of tourism and their application in the tourism destination. Although there were many assignments to finish during the tour, the students enjoyed the tour because it was interesting and fun. This paper recommends three approaches for optimising the tour, i.e. utilising English as the main language in all activities; mastering theories or concepts of tourism and how they are implemented; and publishing the result of the students’ observation through online scientific articles.
