While you won't have to worry about tipping throughout the trip at meals, etc., we do encourage tips for our guides and drivers. We recommend a range below, and this is per traveler. Feel free to allocate this and give at the end of the trip; no need to tip them at the end of each day. Please note you typically will have one guide for the Quito portion, and one guide for the Galapagos portion.
Guide: $6-8 USD per day/ per person
Driver: $3-4 USD per day/ per person
We would recommend $15-$20/per person for the guide and $15-$20/per person for the staff at the lodge (tip that is shared between lodge staff) for the duration of your stay - Please note this is a recommendation for the total time you are there, not per day.
