I think ours was less, more like $20 total for two people. We did not negotiate. We just agreed to what he was asking. But we also bought some items that he was selling so maybe it worked out the same.

I think around 20$ but, if you want, you can go without guide, it's an easy way.

We were offered $ 25 or 30USD for 11/2 hour guided tour at the busiest time (11am) of the day in September and we passed it. Yes, you could tour the site without the guide and take the photos at your leisure. Just remember the place and direction where you are dropped off.

You can certainly tour the sites without a guide and take photos and wander around. The issue is nothing at any of the ruins is labeled, so if you want to know what you're looking at, you need either a good guidebook or a good guide.
