I agree with Jersebas, you should report this, this is not an accurate translation.

The words 'tourist' and 'guest' do not overlap enough, I think. Many guests are not tourists, and not all tourists can be seen as guests, in a shop e.g., though, in a wider sense, they are guests in a country.

According to https://dict.leo.org/german-english/Gast both is correct:

  • Gast = guest
  • Gast = tourist

Good to know. But there was absolutely no context but as I see Klastiron noted "The guest pays" is now accepted. Danke.
