This is correct: Merci de nous avoir aidés.

Didn’t finish there

Or merci de nous avoir aidés

If you wanted to conjugate a reflexive verb in Le passé composé, you would do like this:

(reflexive pronoun) + conjugated (Avoir or Être) + Passé

but now with Merci de, there is a difference which is [Infinitif Passé]

Infinitif means you only don't change Avoir or Être, but the order is the same:

(reflexive pronoun) + (Avoir or Être) + Passé

so the correct answer is: Merci de nous avoir aidés

P.S. This is only my experience and I'm just a new B2, so 90% I'm right but 10% I might be wrong :D
