While tipping is NOT mandatory, a tip is greatly appreciated by our guides. If you are not quite sure how to tip your tour guide, here is a great guideline that is provided by Trip Advisor, a leader in information on travel around the world.

  • For waiters at sit-down restaurants, bartenders, barbers/hairdressers/attendants at beauty salons, taxi drivers, tour guides, and food delivery folks, the tip should be calculated as a percentage of your total bill as follows: 10% usually means you aren’t totally happy, 15% usually means all was acceptable, 20% for excellent, over 20% for outstanding.  15-20 percent is considered standard in most communities.

We hope that this helps you with how to tip your guide. Remember we are here to serve you and to help you have a great time in St. Augustine. If you have any questions at all please call us at 904-392-7137.
