My family with three young adult sons visited Bend this past week. We were very fortunate to have an energetic and enthusiastic guide in Courtney. We spent the day hiking in Newberry National Volcanic Mounument and canoeing at Sparks lake with a very special view of Mt Bachelor. Courtney was delightful. She was very knowledgeable and kept all of us... More

Nick was a great host for our annual pub crawl. He took great care of us and we loved all the breweries we went to. He shared a lot of fun facts about the history of Bend.We will be back. Tina, Mort, Russ, Patty, Bruno & Jacquie

We had a great tour guide Pat for our lava cave tour. We learned a great deal and enjoyed the experience - including complete darkness. The cave can be entered only by a few who have the key - so it is extremely private. No one in the cave but for the 11 of us on the tour. Worth making... More

I participated on a brew tour thru work with Wanderlust tour. We had over 45 people go with three tour vans taking us to different facilities. WOW these tour guides really are so educated and knowledgeable on the history of bend as well as the fine details to beer 102. Our tour guide was Jeff and he was amazing! Made... More

Our guide was very good and we had fun on this tour but we had gotten the impression they had an exclusive permit to go into this more rustic cave. Looks like anyone and their dog (literally) has access as we encountered 4 or 5 other groups who had not hired the guide. We likely would not have gone to... More

I was in town visiting a friend and she got called into work, so I had a free day to myself. I googled "things to do in Bend, Oregon" and the Lava Cave tour was one of the first to pop up. Even though it was last minute, they were able to accommodate me. One of the staff (I believe... More

Fantastic experience with our extremely friendly and knowledgeable guide Courtney. She adapted the tour to accommodate our differing standards of experience and fitness and we learned a lot about the local environment. I would definitely recommend this tour for visitors of all ages - the scenery was fantastic too! Thank you Courtney for a fun trip!

My partner and I were visiting Bend and thought it'd be fun to go snowshoeing. I had never been before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Jared was our snowshoeing guide and he was very friendly, playful and full of cool knowledge. Upon getting to Mt Bachelor he showed all of us how to put on our gear and... More

My mom booked the snowshoeing trek for April 3rd to celebrate my birthday! Couldn't have had a better experience up at Bachelor. We saw a pine marten, rabbit tracks, enjoyed the snowfall, and crossed some beautiful terrain. Nick was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and took great care of us. I highly recommend trying out a Wanderlust Tour to anyone... More

Our tour of the Lava Tubes with Jared from Wanderlust was awesome. Though I could have just brought a head lamp and headed to Boyd Caves myself, I would have missed out on bunch of interesting background info. Jared was very knowledgeable on the local ecology and terrain making for a great learning experience. For fun we turned off our... More
