Private tour tipping?

We have some private all day tours in Paris and the D-day beaches. How much should we be tipping?

We also have some private tours in London and Stonehenge. Any tipping advice there?
Thanks

How many of you are being guided? In various places in Europe, for two of us, we’ve sometimes tipped the equivalent of US $20 to $50 for private tours.

Is your guide the company owner or an employee? To me this makes a difference as presumably for a company owner they would have folded any expected tip into the price.

Plus, tipping is not as prevalent in Europe so I'd not expect to tip as much as you might in the US.

There will be 4 of us on the tour, and they are not with a company they are just individual tour guides.

Since they are with individual tour guides, I'd say no tip would be expected in Europe.
