The tour provider was non-communicative. He canceled the trip on Wednesday and did not contact me again. I contacted him on Saturday after I was charged for the tour and asked if we could do the tour on Sunday, as I had inquired on Wednesday. He said yes but it was so difficult to arrange transportation in this short time period we were unable to attend. He did not offer any assistance and in fact, it took him a whole day to respond to me.

We decided by mutual agreement to move the excursion from Friday to Sunday morning due to the weather. On Saturday afternoon you wrote to me that you no longer wanted to join to the trip because the taxi from Bari was too expensive. You were no longer able to cancel your Tripadvisor booking and get a refund because the tour was less than 24 hours away. And what fault do I have in all this?

This kayak trip was a great way to see the natural beauty of Porto Selvaggio. Marco is very passionate about sharing his love for kayaking. He gave a lesson before we left, teaching us the basics of kayaking (since we were beginners). The pictures and videos he took were great keepsakes to have afterwards.
