Rickshaws at universal hotels

Hi, I've promised my son a ride on the rickshaw bikes which take us from universal studios to hard rock hotel, we've seen them riding past us before but never used them as I never know how much to tip them, the journey to hard rock hotel is only a short walk but I've agreed to us having 1 ride, how much would you recommend I tip them? Many thanks x

If those guys are getting $10 per ride, I'm in the wrong business.

It's hard work, especially if it's blistering heat. $5 per person is not unreasonable under such conditions.

Yeah we gave them ten bucks for three passengers. I suppose if you were on a really tight budget then five would be ok. You can buy a bottle and a half of water with the five you save.

It is about 100 yards in distance. No wonder they don't set a price. @$10 per trip those guys won't break a sweat and end up with a pocket full of cash.
