Q: What does the visitor from Porlock bringing Colerige down from his Kubla Khan high. mean?
A: Because "high" and "down" could have many meanings, I think you need some context about what "Colerige" and "Kubla Khan" mean

"Colerige" was someone who wrote a famous poem about "Kubla Khan" while being under the effects of opium (a type of a drug)
He wrote the poem after having a dream about "Kubla Khan" until someone from Porlock woke him up and then he forgot his entire dream (and the rest of the poem)

So, "the visitor bringing Colerige down" means the visitor who woke Colerige from his dreamy state

"high", in this case, means, someone that is on drugs
For example if you say, "that person is high"
It usually means, the person you are talking about has taken drugs

Does that make sense?

A: It means that if foreigners bang on their table or hiss at their waiters, they will be lucky if they only were thrown it. The person is saying that something worse could have happened, and being thrown out is a lot nicer than treating them in a different manner.

Synonyms of "Visitor" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between visitors and guests ?
A: Visitors are simply people who visit a place (This park has 10,000 visitors annually).
Guests are people invited to visit a place (I expect 200 guests at my wedding [I invited 200 people]).
Sometimes a business will use the term guests when they mean visitors. (10,000 guests came to our store last year.) These people weren't guests. They weren't sent invitations to the store. But using the word guests makes the store sound more friendly and personal. It is for marketing purposes.
Q: What is the difference between We sometimes can't allow walk-in visitor if there are too many guests. and We sometimes can't allow walk-in visitor when there are too many guests. ?
A: Unfortunately, mixing the words 'guests' and 'visitors' doesn't make sense in this case.

If you are talking about a hotel or restaurant, then you can just say 'walk-ins', or 'walk-in business'.

Actually, I can't think of an occasion where I would ever say 'walk-in visitor/s'.
Q: What is the difference between visitors to Melbourne and the visitors to Melbourne ?
A: "Visitors to Melbourne" refers to all people who visit Melbourne, but "the visitors to Melbourne" refers to specific people. You might say ""the visitors to Melbourne who travelled on the Number 87 bus were lucky to escape serious injury after the vehicle crashed".
