Private guide, lunch etiquette

Jump to last reply

I generally travel independently and don't hire private guides. For an upcoming trip to South America I have made arrangements with some guides in various cities. What is the correct etiquette for meals? Do I need to invited the guide to dine with me? Am I responsible for seeing the guides lunch? What is appropriate/inappropriate. Sorry if this comes across as a dumb question, I have not worked with private guides in the past when sightseeing and meals need to be coordinated.

Any advise will be appreciated.

Thanks.
