"Tipping on Tour Buses" Tipping Tip by richard3206

Tipping, New York City: 46 reviews and 18 photos

There has been much written about tipping in New York - just do it, it's the norm, however much you object. But I am commenting specifically on tipping the tour guides on the Grayline (and other) tour buses. On each trip, the guide gives a speil about how they are in the service industry, and rely on tips. I'll accept this, but one guide suggested that the proper amount was $5 per person! For a bus that holds over 50 people, that's $250 for a 1 1/2 hour trip. That's just too extreme.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
