Tipping Contiki Drivers and Tour guides

I was told by my cousin who has taken a Contiki tour before that the driver and guide expect tips from each passenger at the end of the tour. Any idea what an estimate would be on a fair tip per day ratio? My cousin said that if you call Contiki they suggest 2 USD per day for each driver/guide. Is this reasonable? Also, should this tip reflect the quality of job the contiki rep has done or is it purely an expected courtesy?

Responses from contiki alum would be most valuable. Thank you
