Tour guide at MP and current climate?

Good afternoon

We're 3 ladies and a toddler traveling next week to MP. I've read several postings where folks feel rushed by their tour guides and some have even suggested hiring a tour guide once in MP. My question is what is the average cost of hiring a tour guide AT MP? Also I have already seen mixed reviews about traveling with a toddler that I am very aware of. I will be traveling with a hiking carrier and a "toddler leash". This is my main reason to want to hire a tour person on site. I don't want to be rushed by a group of 15-20 people.

Secondly, I'm from NYC; its freezing here lately. 27 degrees F. I understand its cold this time of year with rain. Is it NY cold (humid) or is it dry cold like the west coast? I'm packing clothing for us in layers, along w hiking boots and rain boots for the little one.

Any additional suggestions? And no bashing please regarding traveling with a toddler. I've checked with his pediatrician and remaining positive. Thank you in advance for any helpful advice.

I have always seen many guides at the entrance, but never used one so I am unsure of the cost.
