5 weeks in Rajasthan

Jump to last reply

We are 2 people about spend about 5 weeks in Rajasthan over Sept/Oct. We've spent a lot of time in Jaipur and travelled out from there to Shekhawati area and Alwar and our accommodation has been varied. From hotels where, being shown our room we've discovered an old goat sitting the bed (an experience some might say they have on a nightly basis in the comfort other own home!) to the occasional 5 star property and everything in-between.
On this trip we're doing one of the usual tourist trails - Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur and Delhi and this time we're staying in 5 star hotels, bar one, all the way - Taj Lake Palace, Raas etc. My request for advise concerns tipping.
Is it ok to leave a single tip at the end of the stay - we're staying from 3 - 6 nights at each place. If so, should we tip housekeeping and room service separately?
It's not that we mind tipping, in fact I think we are quite generous tippers, but the smarter places bamboozle me as to when and how much?
What is your experience/opinion.

I'm quite new to Fodor's and I'm so pleased to have discovered such an interesting and informative site. Some of the trip reports here are really wonderful.
