In this paper, we propose an algorithm called the Balanced Orienteering Problem, to design trips for tourists. This algorithm, combined with a recommender system for tourism suggestions, create the infrastructure for the mobile application of the tourism guide we developed. A comparison study between some of the current algorithms and our proposed one were performed and the initial results illustrate that our proposed algorithm yields comparable results to existing system, yet it outperforms them in the average execution time.
