Upon arrival and calling to confirm we were told then and only then, not before at any time by email, that the tour provider was unable to fulfill the tour. It would have been extremely helpful to us to have known this in advance. We did rearrange our schedule and did a 9 am bike ride on a different beach and were told by the guide that he would have been the same provider for the 3 pm tour but he had never been contacted to provide that service. Somewhere there is a disconnect with the middleman here
