The Effectiveness of Tour Operational Management on the Quality of Tourist Services

Screenshot from 2018-09-25 18-15-53This study aims to find out and explain the Effectiveness of Tour Operational Management on the Quality of Tourist Services. This research was conducted with a sample of 50 foreign tourists. Empirical data sources in this study were obtained by collecting data through questionnaires measured in a Likert scale and processed statistically using Descriptive Analysis and Path Analysis methods. Firstly, the data normality test and Kolmogorov Smirnov Test were conducted. Operational management of the tour as an independent variable (x) is divided into 3 (three) sub-variables, namely “Before Tour” (x1), “During Tour” (x2) and “Post Tour” (x3). These three variables both individually (univariate) and simultaneously affect the dependent variable “Service Quality” (Y). The path coefficient is used to find out the magnitude of the influence of operational tour management on service quality. After the data were analyzed with the help of SPSS 19 and Lisrel, the results showed that all independent variables (X) affected the Quality of Tourist Services (Y), with an explanation: sub-variable “Before Tour” (x1) affects 31,226%, sub-variable “During Tour” (x2) affects 28,593% and sub-variable “Post Tour” (x3) affects 32,326%. The total effect of the overall Tour Operational Management (X) on Service Quality (Y) is 92.1%. It can be concluded that all initial hypotheses are accepted, that there is a significant influence from the Management of Operational Tour on Service Quality.

I’m a beggar of hope

imagesPengemis, aku lah pengemis hati.
Mengharapkan hati yang tidak lagi kumiliki.

Pengemis, aku lah pengemis asa.
Berharap akan suatu saat mimpiku akan terlaksana.

Kejalanganku berbuah hasil.
Kini kuterjerat, tak dapat melepaskan diri.

Ratapan demi ratapan tak didengar.
Mungkin memang ini lah rajaman itu.

Wahai Engkau Yang Maha Perkasa,
Kau tunjukkan keperkasaanmu, dan kekerdilanku

Kini tak ada lagi yang tersisa
Karena hakikatnya pun semua akan sirna


Beggars, I’m a beggar of hope.
Hoping that someday my dream will be fulfilled.

My stupidity is fruitful now.
I am entangled, unable to escape.

Lamentations are not heard.
Maybe this is indeed the lapidation.

O Thou the Mighty,
You show your might and my infirmity

Now there is just nothingness left
Because the essence of everything will also disappear

How to prevent cheating

downloadCheating is indeed a topic that is prone to be discussed, unfortunately, more and more do it lately. There are many reasons for men to cheat. One study said men could have cheated because they felt unappreciated.

But that does not mean all men are cheating. Husband’s desire to cheat can be prevented from the beginning, from the wife’s attitude. The attitude that the wife must have so that her husband is not having an affair and only give full attention to his wife.

1. Hug him every day
Physical contact with a partner must be intense or frequent. Physical touch is one expression of love, and hugging him can be an easy way to make him feel loved. This may be trivial, but has a significant contribution to maintaining family relationships. Don’t let this be forgotten in the midst of busy pursuing a career or taking care of a child. Give gentle caresses, backrests on your shoulders, sweet kiss or warm hugs on your partner at all times.

2. Time to chat
Don’t ignore communication and interaction, no matter how small it is. As much as possible, take time every day to talk about many things at home. Get rid of gadgets and chat casually. A marriage and family therapist advises couples to set aside at least 15 minutes every day to really talk without interruption.

3. Make sure that he knows you are always there for him. Spending time together is different from always being there for him. Be a person that he can rely on, such as sharing stories, helping his problem, giving attention and caring for each of his needs, to pay attention to his mood. Make sure your husband knows that you pay attention to him, and he always has a special place in your busiest days.

So, it is actually not difficult to maintain domestic relations and prevent husbands from having an affair. When a marriage commitment has been established, make sure you do your best so that no third party contributes.
