tipping on a fixed price fare

Currently in LA. Negotiated with a driver the hotel recommended to drive us around this morning for a couple of hours for 250 dollars. Do we tip on top of that? If so, 20 percent or less?

Complication: he had driven us twice before. Once from Anaheim to Santa Monica for a fixed price of 180 and I gave him 230. The second time he said 100 from Santa Monica to long beach, which my mother paid and (I found out afterwards) she didn't tip. So when the driver told us 250 today he might have been expecting no tip.
He picked us up from long beach and is taking us on a short tour of downtown LA followed by sunset boulevard and then dropping us at the airport.
