Data were collected from the visitors to ancient tombs of Toraja's tribe ancestors. 300 questionnaires were collected and using partial least square method (PLS) with smart PLS as analytical tool, this study found there to be a positive and significant effect of experience quality and awe on behavior intention. Awe is found to be partially mediated the relations between experience quality and behavior intention.
