Hi Rachel thanks you very much for writing review for us But it is so funny to see your review , First you contact us and ask us all about information cooking class , menu etc then you not book in our site , you booked with TripAdvisor site and in TripAdvisor policy , you also see the cancel policy within 24 hours you must pay full of charge . you are agreement with them before you book . so you cancelled one night before the tour start . you have to pay full the money . it is correct second things . I do not know you cancelled with TripAdvisor or not But we do not receive any information from them that is why we come to pick up you in the morning and then you told us you cancelled the tour yesterday night . if we know you cancelled . we are not stupid spend times and money to come organised the class for you anyways thanks you very much for your to write review thanks chef Tan
