We took the one-day tour, which was suppose to be a Class II-III, but was luckily upgraded to a Class IV. Overall, was a fun day with Cody as our Team Leader. We went out in 2 boats, that had 5-6 clients, plus the guide. I was hoping it would be more challenging, but we kind of knew that it was the lower class tour. It was fun. We stopped for lunch, where some were allowed to jump off a 20-ft rock into the river, if they desired. There was plenty of food. They were very creative, as they forgot the utensils, and instead used large celery sticks as spoons to scoop things into the sandwiches. They actually cut the tomatoes & onios there on the spot. It was not bad overall. The river water was beautiful, after having been seemingly cold initially. The only other hiccup was there was that Scott the photographer, who was to take our pictures while going through one of the more exciting rapid, was late, but Cody & the other guide had us play some fun games with our paddles while we waited, so it was not bad at all. Actually, to our surprise, there were quite a few pictures of the boat & its occupants having fun, from several different locations, some of which we were not awrae of until we returned to the "warehouse"- their main office. We were allowed to split the cost with the other group of 4 in our party ($42 each), which I though was pricey for no more than about a dozen pictures or less, but you pay of course for the memories. back at the place, there were hot dogs & water melon waiting for us, as well as hot showers (in the open & coed), with private places to change clothes, which was fantastic. The price for the trip was about $180 each (weekend rate) & again I thought it was kind of pricey, but then again, this was my first time, and I do not know the comparison prices, as we went on a personal recommendation from a friend, who went with the saem company. We also encountered other companies on the water, and some had groups that were much larger than our 2 boats, so the small size was also nice. Cody told us that he was born & raised in the area & was very skillful, and everyone in the company was super nice. Would definitely recommend. The only nervous part was putting all your valuables in the car & leaving it there. The place was on a cul-de-sac, and everything was OK, and we were told that they have never had a break-in in 37 years of operation, however, their web site indicated that they were no t responsible for any damage or theft of the car or its contents
