At your discretion you might also consider tipping your Tour Leader in appreciation of the efficiency and service you receive.
In North America tipping 15%-20% is a recognised part of life across the service industry, including restaurants, activity suppliers, taxis and guides. Local staff will look to you for personal recognition of particular services provided.
Unlike other Explore trips, during our trips in North America our Explore leaders will not operate a tips kitty. However, they will be more than happy to provide guidance throughout the trip on who to tip when and to suggest appropriate amounts.
Beauty always comes at a price and the wonderful isolation of Alaska is reflected in the price of everyday items which normally have to be imported at great costs. The estimates given for Food and Drink are based on the average across USA so when budgeting for your tour you should allow approximately double the amounts stated.
