Default Tipping on Shore Excursions

How do you figure your tips for tour guides and bus drivers on shore excursions? Is it by the hour? Is it according to the counrty you are in? Is it according to the distance covered?

I would appreciate input from everyone.

We always carry a $5 bill each for the guide assuming they'll do a good job and we'll want to tip them at the end. Haven't gone back to the ship with it yet!
