This paper deals with the problem of deriving personalized recommendations for daily sightseeing itineraries for tourists visiting any destination. Our approach considers selected places of interest that a traveler would potentially wish to visit and derives a near-optimal itinerary for each day of visit; the places of potential interest are selected based on stated or implied user preferences. Our method enables the planning of customized daily personalized tourist itineraries considering user preferences, time available for visiting sights in daily basis, opening days of sights and average visiting times for these sights. Herein, we propose a heuristic solution to this problem and discuss its implementation aspects.
