Inexperienced travelers seeking B&B and guide etiquette

Jump to last reply

My husband I are taking our first trip to England and Wales...and we're in our 70s. When we stay at a B&B, are we supposed to make our bed when we leave for the day? The B&B provides breakfast and dinner and guided day trips. We have already paid in advance their full fee. Should we tip as well? Also, for the second part of our trip we have hired a private tour guide. He quoted a set rate that we will pay in cash when we join him. He made all of our hotel reservations and planned out our itinerary. Should we also tip him, or is it not required since he's the owner/operator and sets his fee. We want to do the right thing but are so unsure of things. Thank you so much for your advice.
