This chapter argues that the perception of pro-poor tourism (PPT) as a distinct (and small scale) variant of tourism involves conceptual and substantive problems. There is, indeed, a place for such tourism but it is not and will never be the alternative to mass tourism, which will continue as the majority pursuit, and which must incorporate both sustainability and equity if genuine PPT is to occur.
