Gratuities for a tour guide

Jump to last reply

My DH and I will be traveling with two other couples to France (among other places) but have arranged for a guide pick us up at CDG the afternoon we arrive and drive us to Bayeux in order to spend the next day viewing the area and driving us back into Paris that night.

He has gone out of his way to accommodate our request since we want to see several things and it will not be a traditional tour. ( No other company either out of Paris or Bayeux would) He had extremely high reviews on Trip Advisor and for several years has received nothing but fabulous comments regarding his professionalism so I feel like this trip will go accordingly.

My question is do we pay him gratuity after he set the price of the tour? I think he must own the company since his name is the only one ever mentioned in the reviews of the company. If so, how much would be an appropriate amount? (percentage?)

Thanks so much!
