In restaurants you may pay around 5 to 10% of the bill for lunch and dinner and for Tea and snacks etc. minimum Rs. 20/- or so.

For hired car driver average Rs. 150 to 250/- per day of tour

Hotel boys for carrying baggage etc. Rs. 50/- , Room maintenance service Rs. 50/- per day of stay.

for the car driver a tip of 500 would be good enough and that too if you are satisfied with his services

These days, many restaurants & hotels add up Service Charge on your bill. If so, you need not pay any additional tip.

Generally its 5-10% of the bill.

With your tour, I would tip around 10% after the 7 days if I was happy. Then up and down from there depending on whether they were better or worse than you hoped.
