Tipping tour guides/drivers

We will be taking a 2-day tour from our cruise ship. What would be appropriate tips for the guide and the driver?

If you are taking a 2 day tour sold by a cruise ship, since it is such a large group (47-50) not much is expected per person. $5 per person would be fine. If it is a small private group where you have personal contact with the guide and driver, most cruisers tip a lot more.

It's a group of 20. How much is a lot?
