tips for tour guides

Does one tip a tour guide as well as paying for the cost of the trip? If so, what guidelines might you give me. Thanks

Allow a 10% to 15% if you are happy with the services provided.

Some people tip a small amount, others don't. Not sure what the point is in haggling about a price, then giving more on top?

Sorry I wasn't exact. This is a 15 day tour guide, and my travel companion and I are not in agreement,, I tend towards your view Tim, but could be wrong. I'd appreciate Tim if you have any additional comments

Tipping is subject that often appears on the TA forums and travellers from North America sometimes have a problem with the concept. I do not mean this in a bad way as Tim is of course correct in stating that if a price for the tour has already been negotiated then there is no need for an additional tip. However if you are particularly pleased with the service provided then a 10% gratuity would be very appreciated as Dina N suggests. A small gift (Canadian sweatshirt or cap for example) is always welcomed.
