I get the feeling that you are confused and you misread the gratuity guidelines. They suggest approximately $10 per person per day for on board gratuities to be divided between your dining room wait staff and your cabin steward. I don't believe there is anything printed regarding gratuities for excursions.
As the others have said, if you are pleased with the person running your excursion, a $5 tip is just fine.
