Hi I am sorry you missed your walk today.  But you were in fact 10 minutes late, you see the walk starts at 10am and the gates close at 09:55 as stated on all corrispondnce.

Once the gates close we then head off down a long track (car park) to the main gates where the alpacas are kept.  Once inside the gates everyone is gathered and the talk then begins, so the mobile is switched off.  We then head even further away from the main gates down to the pens where we halter up the alpacas and  set off for the walk.

So within 15 minutes we are about half a mile away from the front gates.

Think of the alpaca walk the same as catching a train or a bus. The train cannot wait because it would be unfair to all the other customers who are waiting and have paid for there trip.  Once the train has gone its gone and you have missed it!

I hope this helps
