The tourist in a dream in spiritual terms represents the Hermit or Wanderer. To play the tourist in a dream is to be aware of the fact that we have the necessary information to do what we want, when and how we want but that ultimately we are choosing not to do so. A tourist in a dream is someone who does not know his way around. If we are the tourist then we need to look at that aspect within ourselves. If someone else is the tourist then we need to be aware of what help we can give other people. Consult the entries for Hermit and Wanderer/Wandering for further information.
