If you are visiting George Town for just a few hours, the tour coordinator will arrange for the guide to meet you at Swettenham Pier and start your tour immediately, optimizing on the time you spend for your visit.
So how much does it cost to engage a Penang tour guide? Right now, all the tour guides at the Penang Tour Guides group charge RM360 for a block of four hours, inclusive of the administrative charges. It is the same fee whether you are one person or a small group - your tour coordinator will advise you of the maximum group size that the guide will accept for that fee. You are expected to pay a deposit equivalent to 50% of the fee when signing up, with the balance in cash directly to the guide. If you need the person for more than four hours, please inquire the rates with the tour coordinator at time of booking.
