"Staff and guide were excellent and we thouroughly enjoyed our time on the ship. Our only issue was with the tipping. The Tribes information gave suggestions for the guides and drivers but the Beluga had its own recommendation that we only found once on the boat and unfortunately after the last town visit. Luckily the guide accompanied us to the airport so we were able to tip the crew with our remaining cash and pay our bar bill and tip our guide once we visited the ATM at the airport."
