***** Dear valued guests,

We kindly request your attention regarding a matter that has affected our tours in the past. On several occasions, individuals have booked for multiple participants but failed to show up, which unfortunately prevented other genuinely interested individuals from joining the trip. To ensure fairness and give everyone an equal opportunity to participate, we kindly ask that when booking, please select the number of participants as one. By doing so, you secure your spot on the trip and allow others who are eager to join to have a fair chance as well. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in creating a fair and enjoyable experience for all participants. Thank you.

Please note that this particular tour is tailored specifically for food enthusiasts. We kindly ask that you bring a sufficient amount of cash, approximately a couple of hundred baht, to cover expenses such as temple fees, purchasing fruits, and enjoying food and beverages throughout the trip. Comfortable shoes are also recommended as we will be doing a fair amount of walking. Your attention to these details is greatly appreciated. We are eagerly looking forward to welcoming you on this delightful culinary adventure!

Lastly, we would like to highlight the importance of tipping your tour guide. Tipping is a thoughtful way to show appreciation for their expertise and hard work in creating an informative and enjoyable experience for you. It also plays a crucial role in supporting the livelihoods of our tour guides, who often rely on tips to make ends meet. For our free walking tours, a customary tip is €14 (500 Baht) or more per person, depending on the length and quality of the tour. If you had a pleasant and rewarding experience, we kindly request you to consider leaving a generous tip as a token of your gratitude.

While disappointed that the free walking tour got canceled, I'm grateful that the Guru prioritized everyone's safety by informing us about his positive COVID-19 test. It's reassuring to see such responsible behavior, and I appreciate the transparency and concern for the well-being of the participants. Looking forward to rescheduling the tour once it's safe to do so! :D
