The aim of this paper is to review the link that exists between host community and the methods for enhancing tourism experience. The participation and involvement of the local community in providing and administering the tourist services, would be mutually beneficial to both, the tourists and the host community. The former would get customized personal services and the later would be the economic beneficiary from tourist spending. So far, the potential of small and medium tourism enterprises (SMTEs) has been recognized as a copartner in handling the local tourism besides the monoliths of government organizations. The role of the family business still remains to be appreciated in destination competitiveness. The profitability and risk of Tourism Entrepreneurship should always have linkage with the creativity and innovativeness of the local community.
