Guides are the unsung heroes of the travel business. They are storytellers, teachers, and, often, skilled athletes with a true passion for sharing what they love. In many instances, we put our lives in their hands; in turn, they put theirs at risk for us.
The question comes up very often as to whether or not to tip your adventure tour guide.

Tips are greatly appreciated and pretty much an industry standard so it doesn't hurt to tip your guide.
Recommended tip amount:
Industry standard is $10 per person in your group.
