Default Re: Excursion tipping

the general tipping rule is that you do not tip the owner of the business or company. I do not tip the salon owner who does my hair, (unless she fits me in when i have a hair emergency) . I do not tip the MaitreD at the restaurant nor on a cruise, unless he has done something extra special for me. I will tip the porter who handles my baggage, and the cabbie who gets me to and from my destination safely. If the bus/van driver is the tour narrator then i would drop him/her a couple of bucks. I do not tip the tour escort/narrator. Its up to you, tipping is a personal decision
