While tipping isn't mandatory in Peru, it's customary to add spare change or a small amount to restaurant bills. Although most restaurants and bars may already include a 10% service charge within the bill, feel free to add more if the service was good. Taxi drivers generally don't expect tips.

Restaurant workers, hotel porters, maids and taxi drivers will appreciate a small sum, but be sure to tip in Cuban pesos as foreign currency isn’t easily exchanged in Cuba.
Tipping is up to the individual when travelling in Brazil. It isn’t expected but will be happily received by service workers like taxi drivers and waiters.

Tipping isn’t mandatory in Albania but it’s common to round up the bill in a restaurant and a tip of 5-10% for good service will always be appreciated.
In established restaurants, bars, hotels and taxis, a 5-10% service charge is usually added to the bill - though feel free to tip more than this for exceptional service. At restaurants where a service charge isn’t included, 10% is the acceptable gratuity. Although tipping at other places isn't mandatory it will be well received, and setting aside a small amount for porters, guides and drivers is also a good idea.
