    I'm on the waiting list ... with 46 others I'm guessing showing up to snag an empty spot is likely ill-advised.

    But if an RSVP is cancelled in advance, does a waitlist person automatically advance to the RSVP list?

      And they'll get an e-mail? Unlikely to matter this time for me since I'm #45 or 46 , but good to know.

    Any chance a 2nd tour will be added at a later date? With 40+ people waitlisted, there is definitely enough demand! Thank you :)
