Tour Guides


Tour guides may find that they have peak and slack periods of the year that correspond to vacation and travel seasons. Many tour guides, however, work eight months of the year. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that in May 2019, median wages for tour and travel guides ranged from $9.38 per hour to $22.04 per hour (or from $19,500 to $45,850 or more annually), with medium hourly pay of $13.27 (or $27,600 a year).
