Wages are usually paid on an hourly basis for tour guides, starting at around $9 an hour. With experience and a record of hospitable guiding, it is possible to increase your wage to as high as $18 an hour. Often, members of a tour group may tip the tour guide if the tour was particularly informative or memorable. If you are in the business of being a tour director for a successful company, you could make anywhere from $200 per day and upward. According to SimplyHired.com, the average tour guide salary in 2006 was $40,000. Depending on the location (bigger cities will most likely yield more money), a culinary tour guide can carve out a very successful career.
