This work presents a new way to enhance a tourism experience through an interface. Basically considering a Bayesian approach and introducing the Cox-Jaynes theorem, we can consider the improvement of this interface. We take in our approach how adding some features will ultimately create an interface that fit the needs of the tourist.
