Perhaps take a look at the price

Regarding the Seashore Rickshaws. What a sight for sore eyes especially when observing that you see more empty ones going along the seafront.

Could it have something to do with the price? £15 for a guided tour?

How many languages do the peddlers speak?

Assuming that you are trying to attract tourists, some of whom might have limited knowledge of the English language.

After reading the article, I thought there might have been a printing error regards the price to hire a rickshaw but when I checked your website, I realised that is what you charge. Perhaps you would attract more punters if you reconsidered your price?

Lucy Culshaw the organiser mentioned in the article that a ride on the rickshaw is a lot more fun than waiting for a bus.

Some of us have bus passes so the ride is free and well worth waiting for.

Good luck for the forthcoming winter season all the same.
