Tip for Safari Park Tour Guide?


My daughter and I are doing the VIP experience at the SD Safari Park. Is it customary to tip the tour guide? Are they allowed to accept tips?

Guidance is appreciated!

Thank you!

Interesting question.

We have gone on several of the extra safari tours and I don't remember if we tipped the guides there? You can always offer and if they are not allowed they will tell you no thanks.

I have always tipped guides on private tours in other places.

I would think that the guides are not allowed to accept tips. That's my experience as a guide at non-profits anyway.

But there's no harm in offering IF you think it was an exceptionally good tour.
