Abstract: This review paper brings closer comparison of current scientific attitudes towards quality of services in rural tourism. The quality in rural tourism is a hot issue; it is applied by UNWTO and many national organizations. The review reveals trends in quality accessing, models for measuring quality and commonly used tools. The outcome of this paper should provide not only a sole description of the attitudes but also it should point on the limitations of each mentioned approach. Quality of services is with no doubts what shapes visitors view on the service itself, on the destination or products. However there exist several more or less different attitudes towards quality in rural tourism – namely on what factors are critical for overall quality of the services and visitors satisfaction.
