Tips are voluntary and of course depend on your satisfaction with the driver’s or guide’s service. We do not include them in the cost of the tour, but of course if they perform well, you are free to tip them and the amount is up to you. Most of the popular restaurants add 10% service fee to each bill, sometimes without a notice. If there is no service charge – 10-15% is the norm.
