Tourism is truly a complex global phenomenon and the influence of culture on behavior is especially salient in the field of tourism compared to other services. The mean scores capturing the perceptions of the tour guides assessing the travel behavior of the tourists from four nationalities on the 20 scales were examined to identify extreme highest and lowest ratings.

The findings of these two studies indicated that tourists from the high uncertainty avoidance cultures had taken risk and uncertainty reducing measures related to the during-travel stage also to a greater extent compared to the tourists from the low uncertainty avoidance cultures. The cultural dimensions used to explain the findings are listed under the applicable tourist behavior domains.
