How much should I budget for tips?

Many guidebooks express that tipping is not customary or expected in Peru. We have a different approach. Though it may not be expected, tips are a special way of showing ones appreciation. We strongly encourage tipping, and feel that it is a wonderful way to support the culture and economy. Though tipping amounts vary 15% – 20% is a general rule of thumb.

At Pisac Inn you can leave a tip for housekeeping in the room, and we encourage our hotel and restaurant guests to leave tips for the rest of the staff in the jar at reception that is divided equally among them. Please tip your driver and guides directly, and if you have a treatment at the spa, please leave tips at spa.
