Tipping is not obligatory but is always appreciated if guides, drivers or servers have provided you with genuinely good service. Rounding up the check by somewhere between 5% and 10% is usually a suitable tip. Some hotels and restaurants add an obligatory service charge to your check (usually 10%), in which case you definitely don't need to tip.
