Tips and Discounts

  • Children (7 - 17 y.o.)/students get 50 USD off the tour price. Students must have an ISIC card, otherwise the discount is not available. 
  • Gratuities to the guide and driver are not included in the tour price. The sum you wish to give to your guide and driver after a well-done tour should be up to the western standards (approximately 15%). It is a good idea to divide gratuity between your guide and driver and give it separately to them: 10% to the guide and 5% to the driver. Please have some cash with you (USD, EUR or RUB) for this reason, but it is always up to you!
