Abstract

This research note discusses a critical gap in the tourism literature-children's travel, and specifically, their tourist experiences based on their own perspectives. The paper highlights a few reasons for the scarcity of studies on children, followed by a recommendation on how children's experiences should be revealed, arguing that children's voices ought to be heard if the aim of scholarly inquiry is to conceptualize the tourist experience comprehensively and responsibly.
