Questions & Answers
Greetings! I am interested in your 2-day tour to Carrmel & Big Sur. It sounds great and just what I've been looking for. In reading through the itinerary and looking at the tour price I noticed an underlined sentence that said: "Gratuity to driver/guide not included. The customary tip is 20% of the tour cost in the USA." 20% of the tour cost for two people would be $500. I am an experienced solo world traveler and I am not cheap but quite frankly I find this to be excessive. Can you please tell me what the average tip is to a guide for this tour? I have a hard time believing that the majority of people tip 20%. Many Europeans don't tip at all and those who do normally leave a minimal amount. Based on my own global travels and articles I've read, I think 10% would be appropriate and 15% would be a very generous gratuity.
