Tipping Pkg. tour guides and drivers - ?s

I'd like some guidance with regard to tipping the guide for a pkg. tour in Morocco. We usually always travel on our own, tipping hotel maids, taxi drivers and waiters, etc. as needed. I realize some people are lavish tippers and some are cheapskates. We don't want to be either (of course, for exceptional service we will up our tips when appropriate). The "guidelines" listed by the tour company that we just rec'd. seem rather pricey, but I just thought I'd ask for some input on this. I understand people work hard for their money so going into that issue and how they deserve it and so on isn't what I am asking. Thanks for any helpful input.

To the guy posting the same complaint on various Moroccan forums, we understand you have a gripe with a hotel. But PLEASE stop messing up everyone else's chances of getting answers to some legitimate questions! (Tim C., I'm w/you on this!)

I would still like to hear replies about tipping tour guides. We mostly travel independently, so I could use some guidance about the tips. Thanks.

Hi,

Opinion varies hugely on this subject and it has been discussed at length. Type tipping tour guides into the search box and you'll see what I mean!
