Tipping in Peru is pretty common, especially with the guides. Peru is home of rich wildlife and the Inca trail. With a guide you can see Machu Pichu and other jaw dropping Inca sites. It really is a must see country for nature and culture enthusiasts. Use our guide below to figure out when to tip and how much you should on your travels in Peru.
Taxis: You don’t have to tip taxi drivers, you will negotiate a fare before hand which will include a tip.
Hotels: If the bell boy was to handle your baggage then you should give him the equivalent of $1 a bag. The maid can be tipped the same per night if you are staying for more then a few nights.
Restaurants: If the service is not already included then 10% is a normal tip for a good experience.
Bars: Leaving a few soles for the bar tender is fair. They will appreciate the gesture too!
Other: If you are doing a tour then the guide and driver will expect a tip. You should tip the guide the equivalent of $7-$10 and the driver between $5-$7 for full day tours. This is per person as well. Trekking guides will expect double this as they will be with you most of the tour.
