How much is the average Tipping and when to give it?
Nile Cruise Crew:
On Average there are about 50 to 70 people working in the Nile Cruise boat. The Guest sees only 5 or 7 persons of the crew. So it is unfair to give tips to people that you see and forget other people. That’s why there is a rule in all Nile Cruises that Guest should not pay any tips for anyone during the Nile Cruise Trip. All Tips must be given at the end of your trip. You put your tips in an envelope and write the amount on the back then leave it at the Reception of your Nile Cruise. All Tips will be collected from clients and divided to the whole Cruise Staff. This is a Fair solution for everyone.
The Tips is about 3 to 4 US$ Per Person per Night. For Example, if you are 2 Person and having a 3 Nights’ accommodation in Nile Cruise your Tip Amount will be:
3 US$ x 3 Nights x 2 Persons = 18 US$.
So you Leave 18 US$ in an Envelope at the Reception on the End of your Nile Cruise Trip.

Tips are not an obligation on you. It is redemption for a good service. However wages in Egypt are very low. So most people depend on tips to survive, but this is not an excuse to give a bad service.

In most cases if you don’t give tips, people such as Driver, Cruise Staff, Felucca Captain or Carriage Car Driver will think that you gave the tips to your guide to give it to them and will start a Hard Talking with him about that and waste your time.
