Between ten and twenty percent, depending on how pleased you were with the guide's service.

Ten percent is the standard by Brazilian standards. Check to see if it's included in the bill (servicio). 20% would certainly be appreciated by Brazilian waiters, but but few Brazilians will tip more than 10% .

You don't need to tip anyone in advance and if you don't like his/her service.

Ten percent for a good service and 15 to 20% for an exceptional one.
