most dificult question tips for guide and driver

It's always so difficult to decide the tips we should give.It's important to stay within the value of the money of the country. The value of a tip of 100US$ is not the same everywhere.

What should be the tipping in Bhutan for guide and driver if the service was ok ? Can you say .....% of the package cost ?

(we're a small group and stay 3 weeks)

%age of the package cost is not really relevant; length of stay and group size is typical to look at.

Assuming 2 people is the small group size then a rough minimum would be US$ 10 per day for the guide and US$ 6 per day for the driver; if the small group is 4 people then I would add 50% to these (these are totals between the group, not from each person in the group!!) - you can of course be more generous depending on service provided & any special circumstances.
