Tipping Tour Guides and Bus Drivers

Post New Topic

I am an expat living in France. I am visiting Romania (Bucharest & Brasov) in September 2019. I did not see any previous topics on this subject, but I may have missed it. (62 pages). I have also researched online but the answers I am finding are so broad range.

While in both Bucharest and Brasov, I will be taking walking tours and day trips to other locations. On a walking tour, how much should I tip the tour guide? On the day trip, how much should I tip the tour guide and the bus driver?

Thank you in advance.

Keith

AS I recall in Brasov the walking tours were free and they get tips only. It really depends on how many people are in your group and if the walking tour is still free. If free and you have 20 or so in the walking group, probably 3 Euro. The bus tour you pay for so depending on what your fare is, maybe 2 or 3 Euro for the guide and the driver 1 or 2 Euro.
If it is a 50 passenger bus the guide would make out very well at those numbers and he gets paid as well. Same with the driver. The average monthly salary in Romania is in the 350 - 600 Euro range for non professional employees.
