Cost of guides and restaurants

My husband and I will be traveling with our 24 year old daughter to Myanmar on July 3. Can anyone tell us how much it will cost to hire an English speaking guide for the day in Bagan and Inle Lake? Do we need to also hire a driver? Can anyone provide a price range for restaurants from less expensive to relatively high-end? We don't want to eat street food. We need this information for budgeting. Thanks!

Many of the restaurant reviews from the top toolbar contain recent comments on pricing so a read through those could help.

SS: I have another question: All of our bills of US currency are dated 2006 or 2009. Is that "pristine" enough? They are totally clean and never been in circulation before but I was wondering about the date. I don't understand the talk about small heads versus large heads and series A,B,C etc.

The "heads" are the size of the pictures.

Pre 2003are not acceptable but more recent bills,if in good condition,will be accepted at the Bank Exchange at the airport.
