Default Shore Excursion Tipping

Do you usually tip on shore excursions such as a buck or two for the bus driver or tour guide Personally I find excursion prices to be high but will tip for service excellence.

Yes, I have always given our drivers a buck or two for the excursions - they will begin their salespitch towards the end of the tour anyway.

In most cases, yes, a tip would be nice, especially if you had a good time. Sometimes, you'll see a "tip" jar by the driver, so throw a few dollars in there. I really can't recall a bad excursion, the tips are usually earned.

I agree. For drivers and the 'walking' tour guy/gal we gave as well.
