Don't tip at each and every stop - overnight lodging (except to the lodge itself maid service)

Wait until the final day of the tour and cash handed discretely or in a Thank You note envelope.

What to tip ?

Who to tip ?

Well that is up to how well the tour was presented conducted and of interest to you and

questions commentary provided. No right or wrong answers.

Depends on who did the touring the commentary - the Guide - the Bus Driver - any others.

You could combine the individual tips for both - presuming that the tips are pooled/shared.

 

The amount ?

I am reluctant to share that as I would not want to set a misunderstood standard.

CC Readers may offer what they have tipped or a range of compensation - - -

Tipping is for the most part a personal judgment matter.

 

On another note:

If the tour service was not up to your standard or expectation - maybe a comment note

to the tour folks to let them know of their perceived failing room for improvement.

 

Tipping is always a tough subject here at CC.

Sometimes HAP will combine separate or distinct motorcoach segments into a full individualized tour. In other words, there may not be a single motorcoach driver or guide for a particular individual's travels. It may become necessary to tip--if to tip at all--incrementally in these circumstances.

 

In any case, however, it is not customary to tip motorcoach drivers who provide regularly scheduled service, and never for local transit bus drivers (most of whom are prohibited from takings tips). This would be any type of transportation from point A to point B, without substantial commentary or services beyond stowing and retrieving baggage stored under the coach, such as one might encounter with either Park Connection or an Alaska Cruise Transportation direct transfer. Tips are frequently given where there is substantial commentary, where a tour (as opposed to direct transportation) is given, or where more than minimal service is rendered.
