Default Tipping for private tours

I may sound very naive but I'm completely unsure what is appropriate to tip when taking private tours in port. Anyone out there have any advice. It would be greatlly appreciated.

It all depends on the tour and the operator. We've tipped those tour operators who have provided very personal or outstanding service.

Celebrity Century 1/09
Carnival Destiny 10/07
Carnival Destiny 9/06
Monarch of the Seas 3/06
Carnival Inspiration 8/05
Carnival Miracle 4/05
Carnival Inspiration 4/04
Sovereign of the Seas 4/03

Hi Computer,
I've taken quite a few shore excursions, and in most cases the operators do expect some kind of tip, so depending on the excursion, expect to tip at least a few dollars.
