We initially booked the grade 3/4 rafting tour but not enough people signed up. We decided to try the grade 5 rafting experience which was shorter but includes a 7 meter falls. Our guide was Cody and he did a great job guiding four people in their late 60's on a fun adventure. We all had a great time and would highly recommend the experience.
