Tipping: are there different rules for restaurants, hotel staff and tour guides?

Okay, I've done my research and am still confused. If a service charge is added to a restaurant bill, is it necessary for a tip and how much?
For a tour guide that you are spending 300 euros for a day trip, are you supposed to tip and how much?
For the porter who takes your bags to the room.. tip? how much?
For the housekeeper, tip? how much?

It seems that many fodorites have different views? What's the way to go? Thanks, Lisamarc

Italy... I'm sorry, I thought that by selecting Italy when I posted this message, it would be indicated. Grazie, Lisamarc
