What do you tip the bellboy in Botswana? Should you give a gratuity on top of the service charge in a Parisian restaurant? Is it good practice to pay a Casablanca snake charmer if you wish to take his photo?

Now Bradt’s Tipping offers the answers in a convenient, pocket-sized guide covering more than 130 countries. With black and white illustrations and photographs throughout, the book additionally features light-hearted personal anecdotes and tips drawn from the authors’ careers in travel.
