Tipping guides in Patagonia

We are often asked the question: how much should I tip my guide if they’ve done a great job?

Rough rules of thumb might be:

  • If it’s a group of 1 or 2 people then maybe $10-$20 per day
  • For larger groups a tip of $3 to $5 per day might be appropriate

Obviously it’s always at your discretion, but there are some great guides out there who are passionate, knowledgeable and really go the extra mile to make your trip as good as it possibly can be, and it’s nice to reward them.
