I recently took the Flower Walk tour. I really enjoyed being with the people as we rode the bus, stopped for tea and took the ferry across the river. Need to confirm all their tours - since they basically run on demand.

Hello.. First of all sorry for the late reply. We gave them 8000 INR. I don't know any guidelines. It depends on you. They were really kind and we had a great fun with them. :) Don't worry about it. Have a great trip!
