Tip is always depends upon your satisfaction, it is not compulsory but necessary. Generally , tip in restaurants ( up to 03star - 1/2 US$ to 01 US$, 04 to 05 star Restaurants 01 $ to 02 $ )

Guide : US$ 5 to 10 per day , driver for local use : US$ 01 to 02 per day , driver out station : US$ 5 to 10 per day

If you are very satisfied with guide & drivers services you may pay more.
