I know one couple who cycled in Yemen, and have been to a slide show of another couple cycled in Yemen. Try to get a good map and go on your own. The road may be challeging enough. I don't think there are any mines on this island, so you can go off road - it's real off road. You'll always met locals there which will invite you for a cup of tea. If there is a restricted area - they will tell/show you. Unfortunately Yemen is well known for hijacking tourists. Please inform yourself if there's a special risk in the area you want to go.
Regarding local tour operators. You have to talk to them by phone better face to face...
