Awesome Experience!

“Acquired Tastes does a great job of guiding you on the trip. I love going with them because they don’t required the helmets on the low level Brown’s Canyon tour, which are very cumbersome and take away the experience of the freedom of rafting. They give you two extra rapids by putting in at Johnson City so the trip lasts longer.”

“heard about this company through a friend and can’t believe how lucky we were – had an awesome raft trip with Drew as our guide and he was wonderful – the water was down a bit but still had a great time – he was knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy what he was doing – overall a fantastic time!! Would recommend this company to anyone who wants a first rate raft experience”

Great trip!

“Our group of 8 guys met in CO this summer and had a great time doing whitewater rafting with Acquired Tastes (1/2 day trip, with lunch!). Our guides were great and took really good care of us. On a colder than typical day, the wetsuits rentals were great and very affordable. Overall great time – and we’ll definitely be back to Acquired Tastes next time in the area (hopefully not too long!)”
