The ecological behaviour of the tourists is an increasingly important topic worldwide. The purpose of this paper is to thoroughly explore the ecological behaviour of tourists during their holidays and the consequences of it. We currently notice a barrier between the classic and modern tourism services. It was necessary to analyse the ecological behaviour of the tourists because, on one hand, Romania has got such a tremendous natural and cultural potential, which should be preserved and transferred from one generation to another, and on the other hand, because the methods of transferring ecological behaviour knowledge are so scarce. The novelty of the research consists in identifying the potential consequences of the level of tourists’ education and information on their ecological behaviour. The findings of our survey reveal that the Romanian tourism has followed the right path as concerns ecology, given that people as both citizens and tourists have been increasingly concerned about environmental issues.
