    Riding with a guide, what’s a customary tip?

    Like the title states, what a customary tip if riding with a guide? We are doing half a day of instruction for my son and half a day riding Dupont.

    in the hunting world, 10% of the cost of the hunt, is typical, i would guess the same here. When i was river guiding, it was all over the board on day trips. some times a 10 spot other times a 20. But i was guiding in the early 90's.

    I'm going to say it depends on the experience the guide gave you. And I'd probably bias things a bit towards the experience your son has. Since, frankly, giving good, fun instruction to kids is more challenging than guiding experienced adult riders. If your son comes out of the day stoked and exhausted, then I'd say things went very well.

    Say thank you very much and go home.
    The only place that tip is in the USA?
    Buy them some beers and job is done.
    PS: Yes I have worked in Tourism driving adventure tours in Europe and around the world. Plus as a Kayaking guide and a heart felt thanks was always best.

    If that is a park I would guess 10 to 20 bucks depending how much the lesson is. If it's a local guy, a six pack and doobie is always solid.
    Keep trying to do the awesomest thing you've ever done.
