Studying the spatio-temporal evolution and the spatial spillover effect of tourism eco-efficiency in the Yellow River Basin is conducive to optimizing the input of tourism resources and promoting the ecological protection and high-quality development of the area. This research estimates the tourism eco-efficiency of the 73 cities in the Yellow River Basin in 2010-2019 based on the unexpected output super-efficiency SBM model, maps their spatial and temporal evolution pattern by applying ArcGIS and reveals their spatial spillover effects by establishing a spatial Durbin model. The research shows: (1) temporally, the tourism eco-efficiency in the Yellow River Basin shows prominent stage characteristics - fluctuating development trend of first rising and then falling, and there is a slight increase in total. Spatially, it shows the heterogeneity of stepwise decline of "downstream-midstream-upstream". The high-value areas are concentrated in the middle and lower reaches of the Yellow River Basin, showing an expansion trend; the low-value areas are concentrated in the upper reaches, showing a shrinking trend. (2) The distribution of tourism eco-efficiency in the Yellow River Basin has the apparent characteristics of spatial agglomeration and dependence. The low-level homogeneous agglomeration is significant, showing the regional spatial distribution pattern of "the low-value areas are constantly low, and the high-value areas are constantly high". (3) The spatial spillover effect is significant. Government intervention and market scale have positive spillover effects on the adjacent cities' tourism eco-efficiency, while economic development, industrial structure, and traffic accessibility have adverse spillover effects. Based on the empirical analysis results, we suggest formulating differentiated and complementary tourism development strategies, strengthening regional tourism strategic cooperation, playing the radiation driving role of adjacent regions, and optimizing urban spatial spillover effect, to provide a reference for regional tourism coordination and cooperation in the Yellow River Basin. The main academic contributions of this study are: firstly, measuring the tourism eco-efficiency of 73 prefecture-level cities in the Yellow River Basin based on the panel data, and analyzing time-space evolution and spatial agglomeration of the 73 cities, making up the shortfall of that most studies on tourism eco-efficiency focus on the whole country, provinces or the Yangtze River Delta, and pay insufficient attention to the Yellow River basin, of which carries the important national strategy. This study also expanded the geographical scope of tourism eco-efficiency estimation to the watershed level with more natural integrity. Secondly, the spatial durbin model is used to analyze the spatial spillover effect of tourism eco-efficiency, expand the application of spatial spillover effect, and provide effective reference for regional tourism coordination and cooperation in the Yellow River Basin.
