Tipping in Paris

Jump to last reply

My daughter and I leave for Paris tomorrow. I have some questions regarding tipping and although I read other reviews I am still a little confused.

I won the trip and was advised by the travel agent to tip the driver picking us up at the airport about $33 Euro and the one that brings us back $29 E. The reason for the higher amount is that he will come into the airport to meet us. We will also be picked up for a dinner one night and I was advised to tip $14.50 E each way. Does this sound correct?

The other question is that my daughter researched what we will be doing the 5 days we are there. One day there is a 3 hour foot tour which there is no charge but you tip at the end if you feel inclined to do so. What is a proper tip?

Last question, a friend gave us a name of someone (their personal friend) that does tours and she is taking us around on Thurs. She is not charging but we would like to tip her after we are done. What is appropriate.

Thank you for your help everyone
