Gratuity guidelines: Tips are always appreciated. A good guideline is $10-$15 per person, per day, per guide. Some like to hand the tip to the guide for a more personal experience. Some groups have pooled their tips and presented them to the guides at the end of the closing ceremony. However you do it, be assured that our hard working guides will appreciate it.
