Tipping in Morocco

Jump to last reply

In September/October my husband and I will be traveling to Morocco and I have some questions. While we are accustomed to tipping in the US and Europe, I want to be sure we're on the right page in Morocco and since many of you have been there, I'm sure you have the answers here.

(1) What is the correct percentage to tip for good service at a restaurant?

(2) If you are doing a private tour into the Sahara and to some other cities, when and how much do you tip your driver/guide? Do you wait until the end as you do on a cruise? Do you tip a percentage based on the total cost or per day? Does the guide pay out of pocket for the bottled water, etc. or is that provided by his company?

(3) If the cost of meals was figured into the package, do you still tip at the riads or was that figured in too?



Any other information you can provide would be helpful.
