Assessment WikiProject Travel and Tourism/Assessment

WikiProject Travel and Tourism was started on May 17, 2007, to coordinate work for and expand coverage of travel and tourism related articles in the English Wikipedia. Of course Wikipedia has encyclopedia articles about travel and tourism – for a travel guide wiki, contribute to the sister project Wikivoyage.

Anyone who is interested in contributing, please sign up below and post any ideas and suggestions on the project's talk page. Also, please feel free to edit this page, adding any articles to the open tasks section below, that need serious work or require attention.

Scope and introduction[edit]

Palm tree on the beach in Cuba.

This WikiProject aims to coordinate and help maintain the development of and improvements to the articles related to travel and tourism. Listed below, you will find tasks and other information related to this WikiProject.


Coordinators are volunteers that are interested in helping "running" the project in a way. This does not mean that they control the project or are the "CEOs" of it. It means that they would like to accept a responsibility.

Open tasks[edit]

Please feel free to add any tourism-related articles to this list, that need to be addressed or improved, in addition to general tasks.

  • Get a peer review for space tourism, and see what we can do to get it to GA.
  • Cleanup volunteer travel. The article sounds more like a dedicated volunteer vacation site, than an encyclopedia.
  • Create new Tourism in ____ articles with the countries in Africa. Per this: Africa in topic|Tourism in We don't have very many tourism-related Africa articles. Also, be sure to check the templates for other continents, too.
  • Assess as many articles as we can. We're just starting off, and we need as much help as we can get.
  • Nautical tourism, created Feb 2007, has been an orphan and that entire time and tagged for cleanup. Desperately needs attention, or simply deletion. --Lendorien (talk) 15:33, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
  • Travel agency - Needs to be updated with more current information, some of the references are over 7 years old and are dated. Will work on getting newer references, any help is appreciated! --Funandtrvl (talk) 15:27, 18 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Business travel is in desperate need of help. About half the article was copied from a commercial web site, and I removed that part. The rest is completely unsourced and reads like some travel agent's brochure. Rees11 (talk) 14:02, 22 February 2010 (UTC)
  • Would appreciate help with assessment and/or improvement of Tourism in Denmark and Tourism in Luxembourg. Feel free to leave suggestions on the talk pages. - Ipigott (talk) 12:11, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Hotel, motel and resort are all start-class with motel in particular having been turned into a mess of US-specific trivia. These are core topics and therefore do need to be cleaned up to a usable level. K7L (talk) 15:21, 6 August 2013 (UTC)
