We (husband & wife from Canada) will be touring Auckland for 5 days, followed by visiting family in Australia for 2 weeks. We have been to Australia approx 5 years ago and it really caught us off guard to NOT tip. Can you tell me - is it customary to not tip in Auckland and surrounding area as well? We really struggle with not tipping especially when it comes to an exceptional tour guide. Any guidance on this subject? Also, what kind of weather can we expect during the last week of November? Thanks.
