Hello Jan, first of all you were informed with 2 days before, by e-mail, about the meeting time - 17:30 (so please check your e-mail from time to time), second all our guides are speaking English, third I sent you an e-mail in that evening to do the same program next day (free of charge), but no answer from your part. The other 2 people who were with you accepted the invitation and they had no bad comments about our services, at all. Hmm...very strange! I understand your frustration by seeing no bears (this is wildlife), but... Anyhow, Enjoy Life!
