Appropriate remittence for a guide in Kathmandu

I will be in Kathmandu for 2 days, but the guide I contacted would not quote a price. The culture norm seems to be " I will accept whatever you think is appropriate " Does anyone have experience with the cost of guides? One day in Kathmandu and one dayin Nagakot. Thank You

There is also the option of coordinating with a tour company. This is what I did. The company made all the arrangements, made valuable additional suggestions, and then paid my travel guide for me from the funds I paid to the travel company.

I invite you to Private Message me if you'd like info on the travel company.

Just got back from KTM and Pokhara and trekking with my 5 kids. Yeah, tips are a big thing there, and you're right - they're all "whatever you want to give," but even the beggars seem disappointed if you don't give enough!!! Our guide was awesome, and took care of everything for us for 16 days. However, I think about 1000 to 1200 rupees a day would be fine. That's like $20 to 25 a day I think.
