If guides are very good...really up to you...but most of the time about $ 10.00 per person...with a family of four maybe $ 30.00...that is a nice tip...

You may want to email the lodge and ask about tipping guidelines. Some lodges divide tips equally amongst their employees, others provide a way to tip at the end of the trip, along with general guidelines based on persons, time spent, etc.
