Platypus Tours--tipping?

I was wondering if the standard is to tip after the tour and what I should budget. I checked their website but there was no mention.

We've had our guests tip a tour driver anywhere from $5 to $40 for the day (bearing in mind that this is often for a couple-- 2 passengers).

But it all depends on what *you* feel is best.

When one of our massage therapists told us a few weeks ago that they considered "a generous tip" somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 (for a $100 per person massage), we were a bit floored. But this is, in fact, what they have received on numerous occasions (!).

Hmmm , , , perhaps we chose the wrong line of work! ;)

Hoping you have a great time, :)
