This is a study on the assessment of tours which are offered to the students in the degree of Bachelor of Science in Tourism. A total of one hundred (100) students were randomly selected to become the subjects of the study. The assessment of the tours is composed of the following factors: pre-tour preparations, tour procedures, educational value, venue and amenities, and others.


The results of the study revealed that majority of the students taking up Bachelor of Science in Tourism are satisfied with the tour-learning programs offered by the College of Hospitality and Institutional Management of Our Lady of Fatima University, Quezon City based on the assigned assessment criteria except on the timely issuance of certificates after the tours and also the price of the tour packages.


In terms of the benefits which the students should gain in the future tours, shopping appears to be the primary preference followed by the seminars. However, it is sad to note that the least preferred benefits of the students are the historical/heritage learning and ecotourism/environmental awareness.
