The impact of tangible cultural and intangible cultural factors, perceived quality, and perceived sense of the place on the perceived experience of the nomadic tourists was analyzed. The variance analysis and the influential coefficient of independent factors were used for scientific inferences using the confirmatory factor analysis in the form of structural equation modeling (SEM) in the PLS environment. The results showed that the cultural tangible factor with influx coefficient of 0.33 and the factor of perception of the sense of place with influx coefficient of 0.29 were the most influential factors on the perceived experience of the tourists visiting nomadic areas. Furthermore, the variance analysis of the factors on the perceptual experience is equal to 34%.
