OTHER INFORMATION:

This itinerary is intended as a guide only. Local conditions and weather may necessitate variations to the program and can affect the availability of views and panoramas described. Be aware that all times stated are approximate and may vary with individual and group fitness, weather and track conditions.

 

 

TIPPING AND TIPPING KITTY:

Although the culture of tipping may not be part or your own culture, it is nonetheless part of the culture in this area of world and it is often the way some people supplement their earnings. Tipping has also become an accepted part of tourism culture in the region. On our trips your trip leader can advise you on this matter, however as a guideline we would recommend a tip of 5-8%. If the service has been satisfactory, a tip is always appreciated with ……with a smile! To protect you from the sometimes seemingly endless soliciting of tips, we suggest you discuss with your trip leader about setting up a tipping kitty whereby everybody contributes an equal amount (this amount can vary from trip to trip, but a good approximate is US $6 per person per day) your trip leader can then distribute tips along the way to local guides, and porters, etc. This keeps a record of all money spent. Please note that this kitty is not designed to provide a tip for your trip leader.

 

TIPPING YOUR LEADER:

It is customary to tip your tour leader at the end of the trip, if you are happy with his/her service. A minimum tip of US $ 5 per day from each member of the group is the amount expected.
