1. Re: tips for tour guides

There is no set rule. I usually decide on roughly 10% of the cost of the tour, however poor service gets less, great service gets more.

It is also really nice if you remember to tip the Tour bus driver as they often earn very little, yet their expertise in getting you to your destination safely also dictates how much you enjoy your visit.

What would you say is a rate for the driver? And thanks for the info.
