Default Tipping Excursion Guides & Misc

What is the standard for tipping guides on shore excursions? Is it a percentage of the tour? Also, what about for room service?

Hi Shirl,
In both those cases we always tip them a few bucks for the 2 of us. For room service, if its a relatively small order just 2/3 dollars is fine. As long as you give them something for their effort, they will be happy, more so if they really went all out.

Donna.....I agree except for the room service tip...I think 2/3 dollars for an order such as coffee..juice..rolls is too much....over 7 days..it could really mount up
