There is no standard rate for tour guides. They are not the typical tour guides whom you'll only see during the tour. Tour guides in Gigantes Hideaway Resort takes care of their guests and make sure to attend to their needs. Like preparing for the tours, bring food to the table, buy whatever the guests wants. They don't sleep until their guests are asleep!!! So, its up to the guests to give a little something to them.. :)
Overall, here's my expenses for this trip excluding airfare.
