I have got hundred questions, “How much is the licensed Bali tour guide cost per day?” It sounds standard question from the visitor. For travelers, to visit a new place , a guide is not just a person who tell you the story behind every places you visit. A good guide is also your friend during the trip. A guide can act as a local translator or a wise negotiator while want to bargain something you want to buy.
There are thousand licensed guides in Bali. They speak your language fluently. Most of them speak axcellent English. For a day trip, an English speaking guide would cost about IDR 300,000 to 500,000. Any other specific languages like Japanese, France, Italian or Korean will cost you about 500,000 to 1,000,000/day.

But, in some places, we can not accompany you because we have limited authorization (we are waiting at the parking area).
