Abstract

Tour guides play an essential role in tourism industry. However, in practice,a large majority of experienced tour guides commonly make attempts to switch to other sectors instead of other enterprises of tourism industry after they have three to five year of work experience. In order to disclose the reasons of the phenomenon data from 113 valid samples was obtained through paper-based questionnaires. Meanwhile, partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM) is employed assessing the research model in which we hypothesize household support, economic rewards, social rewards and career prospects have positively influence profession loyalty. The results show effect of household support (p<0.01) and economic rewards (p<0.1) are statistically significant respectively. Household support is a very key factor on tour guide's profession loyalty contrasted with others. Finally, the limitations of the study are discussed.
