Last updated on
30 November 2016

The Tour module is included in Drupal core. When enabled, the Tour module provides guided tours of the site interface via tooltips. To take a Tour, edit an existing View at admin/structure/views.

Tours can be used to:

  1. draw users' attention to critical components of the interface, especially those elements that might not be immediately obvious,
  2. guide the user through a workflow.


Tour is based on the jQuery library Joyride


  1. Users must be given 'access tour' permission in order to view available tours.
  2. JavaScript must be enabled in the browser

Creating tours

The Tour API documentation provides information on how to create a tour. The Tour UI module provides a UI to build tours.
