tipping for the galapagos and for daily guides in ecuador

I will be on a 7 day cruise in the Galapagos Islands and then I will have a guide/driver for 7 days in Quito, Otavalo and the Quilotoa Loop. I need sone advice about how to tip. What is recommended on the boat and for the naturalist/guides? What is recommended per day (there are 2 of us) for our driver guide?

Was there through www.guanguiltagua.com last fall

with [email protected],com he was AWESOME!

For me for outstanding service 15% of value of tour.

So so 10%

Bad=0%

What I do worldwide...

USD cash most appreciated tipped Dennis $500.

Hope this helps...have fun,

quovadis - Isn't Dennis the owner of Guanuiultagua? Why did you tip him? Was he a private guide on the boat?
