Aloha, fellow adventurer! As you prepare for an epic journey along Maui’s stunning Road to Hana, we want to chat about something super important: tipping your awesome tour guide! We believe in transparency and want to ensure that our guests understand the significance of tipping and how it directly impacts the quality of their experience, so here are some helpful tips… on tipping.

The Scoop on Tipping: Aim for 15% to 20%

Tipping is a way to show some serious gratitude to the guide who works so hard to make your Road to Hana journey the most amazing adventure ever. A tip of 15% to 20% of the total tour cost is a nice way to say thank you to someone who kept you safe all day, created a day of fun and adventure just for you, and shared history and culture along the way.

Straight to Your Guide’s Pocket

Here’s the deal: your tip goes straight into your guide’s pocket. No middleman, no extra fees—just a heartfelt thank-you for their hard work and expertise. While the tour price covers things like insurance, license fees, and vehicle maintenance, your tip is like a cherry on top for your guide.

Supporting Culture and Education

Now, here’s something extra special: our guides aren’t just experts in showing you the best spots along the Road to Hana—they’re also passionate students of Hawaiian culture. They’re always learning, attending classes, and immersed in Hawaiian culture. And they are graciously thanking their teachers and guides through financial support as well. So, your tips are helping perpetuate Hawaiian culture!

Gratitude is Key

Remember, tipping isn’t just about the money—it’s about showing gratitude for a job well done. When you feel like you’ve had the time of your life on the Road to Hana, tipping is like saying, “Hey, you rocked my world, and I appreciate you!” It’s a win-win for everyone involved.

So, as you plan your Road to Hana journey, include a tip in your budget so that you are prepared when the time comes to show your gratitude for the guide who is also so grateful that you chose Journey Jill Tour Guides to share Maui with you!
