According Suswantoro (2007:75) on substantially the understanding of tourism products "is obtained and the overall service felt or enjoyed by tourists since he left his residence to the tourist destination of his choice and to return home where she originally departed" 

Tourism products as one of the objects in the supply of tourism marketing have the main elements which consist of 3 parts (Oka A. Yoeti, 2002:211):

• According to Burns and Holden (1989:172) stated the tourism product as everything that can be sold and produced by combining factors of production, consumers are interested in interesting places, indigenous cultures and cultural festivals. 

• According to Kotler and Armstrong (1989:463), namely as something offered to the consumer or market share to satisfy the wishes and desires are included in the physical objects, services, human resources involved in the organization and breakthroughs or new ideas. 

• Suwantoro (1997:49), argues the tourism product is the overall service provided and felt or enjoyed by tourists since he left his residence, to the tourist destination has been chosen and returned to the house where she originally departed. 

• Bukart and Medlik (in Yoeti, 1986:151) describe the structure of the tourism product as an integrated product, which consists of tourism, tourist attractions, transportation (transportation services), accommodation and entertainment in which each element is prepared by individual companies and offered separately. 

From some understanding of the above, can be described that the tourism product is a service that can be enjoyed by tourists from the place of origin, in a tourist destination, until returning to the house, which is supported by tourist attractions, facilities and services, product price, accessibility support that can facilitate travel activities.
