Abstract: Personalised Electronic Tourist Guides (PETs) are mobile hand-held devices able to create tourist routes matching tourists' preferences. Transportation information has been identified as one of the most appreciated functionalities of a PET. We model the tourist planning problem, integrating public transportation, as the Time-Dependent Team Orienteering Problem with Time Windows (TD-TOPTW) in order to allow PETs to create personalised tourist routes in real-time. We develop and compare two different approaches to solve the TD-TOPTW. Experimental results for the city of San Sebastian show that both approaches are able to obtain routes in real-time.
