The study employs an autoethnographic methodology centered on the researchers' extensive background as tourist sector practitioners. The researcher identifies three fundamental tourism storytelling techniques: places, people, and objects. The use of sensory experiences that create a realistic view of a location, strong emotional connections with well-known personalities, the sharing of cultural insights, contrasting and comparing cultures at various locations, highlighting hidden gems, and the use of symbolism or themes to describe a location are all examples of techniques for telling stories about places. Using person-centered storytelling, tour guides can create engrossing narratives by focusing on the character's traits, abilities, and weaknesses, as well as personal tales and journeys. These techniques result in a more authentic and gripping narrative experience. The final approach involves discussing products or physical objects. Guides can narrate the origin and evolution of a product, its cultural significance, future use and potential advancements. This approach provides visitors with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the products unique to the destination. This study contributes to a better understanding of how tour guides can leverage storytelling techniques to enhance visitor experiences and offers practical insights for professional tour guides to improve their narrative delivery.</em></p> 2023-04-28T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Tomy Andrianto Improving the Management Capability of the Giyanti Tourism Village in to Raise the Tourism Village Category 2023-05-18T05:56:48+00:00 Endah Trihayuningtyas Renalmon Hutahean Tatang Sopian Mohammad Liga Suryadana Haryadi Darmawan <p>This study aims to improve the management capability of the Giyanti tourism village in Wonosobo Regency, Central Java.
