Same answers as above - they reply within the day.
What is a fair "tip" at the end zone f the tour? Any response other than its "Up to you", is most welcome and appreciated. I am on a very tight budget and want to tip but not offend either. I also don't want to end up being a jerk or "that guy". To avoid offense, I would rather embark out on my own and utilittle my own initiative. That said, roaming about with purpose and with a local's insight and a nice chat also big the way and day, sure would be wonderful. What does a person tip for this sort of thing? I just don't have a clue. Many Thanks.
