How much tip is adequate for a Guide how was 5 days with us in Tibet?
Thanks for your help
It is a strange double standard. Chinese do not and are not expected to tip, only Westerners are.
It depends on service of tour guide and driver. If you think they did a good job for you, you can give them USD5~Usd10/per day.
Tipping to your guide/driver is to show appreciation. Usually for a guide, it is about CNY200 a day (Chinese Yuan) and CNY100 for the driver. It's up to you though how much you want to give, as it is depended upon the service.
I don't know where #5 gets the amount of the tips of, but they are nonsense.
Let's do some math on yor suggestion. Take the typical 4WD with 4 tourists for a 1 week trip. That would be RMB 200 x 7 days x 4 persons and works out to RMB 5600 or about US $ 820.-
That means the driver gets almost US $ 3300 net per month plus his local salary. I'd say not a bad deal.Edited: 11 September 2018, 18:01
It's not compulsory and it's all up to you.
