Authenticity as a value co-creator of tourism experiences.

This chapter addresses a particular view of authenticity as a co-creator of value in cultural tourism experiences.

By using the views and self meanings and interpretations of authenticity by the consumers of place, this research has allowed a deeper understanding of the term from the tourist's perspective.

The findings offer a number of insights into the understanding of how tourists can authentically present their experiences in cultural tourism consumption by being part of the authentication process in contrast to being a passive observer.
