Touring Budgets

I'm interested in people's touring budgets. How long was your tour(length, duration and point to point), what was your budget and what kind of touring did you do (hostel, camping or what)?

I'm planning a tour down to Tierra del Fuego and have no concept of how much a tour of any magnitude costs.

P.S. Pre and post costs aren't neccessary, only post but if you want to give the pre cost, feel free.
Thanks!

If I was doing that trip I'd have a budget of $25USD/day solo and maybe $35-$40USD for two. People have toured for much less and also spent much more. It will really come down to your personal style and how many luxuries you want/need.
