Jim Jim Falls tour operators

Well, I goofed up big, and am looking for help to dig my way out of it. I procrastinated booking Kakadu tours, and when I called today to book (for Sunday and Monday), it turns out that Gagadju-Dreaming doesn't take 6 year olds on the Jim Jim Falls / Twin Falls tour. Ugh. I tried to get them to budge, but no luck. They claim that the hike is too difficult. If it's too difficult for that little ball of energy, who regularly does 10 km, and makes it seem like 20 with all his zig-zagging, scampering, and rock-hopping, I'm sure it's too difficult for any of the adults also.

Anyway, I called my backup, Top End Explorer Tours, but they're a small operator and booked up. Double ugh. So, that puts a big hole in the itinerary.

Can anyone recommend an alternative tour operator for Jim Jim? One that will take (energetic) six year olds?

Or, can anyone recommend an alternative tour to fill up that day? We're already planning on doing the Yellow Water and East Alligator River cruises on different days, and will be hitting Gunlom, Nourlangie, and Ubirr also. Thanks in advance.
