Tipping Etiquette.

As a visitor to Orlando and the USA then you may not be aware of the
etiquette of tipping.

While tipping is not mandatory in most of the United States, it is customary in many circumstances for service, especially at almost all sit down restaurants which offer table service and many food servers depend on tips as an essential part of their wage.

You will probably find that the tip or service charge has already been added to your bill so do check this carefully before adding this again.

Here are some guidelines which you may find helpful.
