Tipping Private Tour Guides in England

Jump to last reply

Hello. We will be in England from March 25 and have arranged a number of private tours with gardeners, enthusiasts, off-season guides, etc. In some cases there is a small fee (£10), other times no fee at all. Having travelled to England many times we have learned that "no tipping" is usually the best policy, but in these cases, would it be appropriate? We don't want to offend anyone and we very much appreciate them showing us about. If no tip, would it be appropriate to invite them to join us for a drink? Give them a small gift from Canada? Or should we just say thank you and be on our way?
