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

My family really loved this introduction to the caves. Our guide was well versed and quite passionate about the caves. She explained a lot of what we were experiencing so that the 8 year old on the tour understood everything. What you need to know: There is a lot of walking and some crawling on your hands and knees. There... More

I was in Bend the week of March 9, 2015 with three teenagers. We decided to go snowshoeing on our first day in town- which also happened to be my son's 16th Birthday. What an AWESOME experience. Our guide, Nick was perfect. He was extremely knowledgable and informative- and most importantly, he was so much fun!!! He led us through... More

My thanks to Dave Nissen and Nick for a wonderful tour of Crater Lake and a great time snowshoeing the rim and virgin forest! Dave and Nick make a knowledgeable team, and we (the Finger Lake Ski Club) thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The lake is spectacular and Nick knew all about the geology, the forest and its varieties of... More

I must say, as a whole, Wanderlust has always exceeded my expectations with customer service. Every person I have spoken to or been on a tour with has just gone above and beyond to be kind, helpful, prompt, knowledgeable, and WANDERFUL! I will be a forever customer! I will always recommend Wanderlust!

We live in Bend and have been aware of Wanderlust Tours but, until we were given a gift certificate, had not booked any or their tours. We decided to take the Brew Bus and go to four local breweries. We were extremely pleased with how the tour was run and how the guide interacted with each of us. The tour... More

Last summer a friend and I took the Wanderlust tour that focuses on the area south of Bend where past volcanic activity has shaped the landscape. Our driver/guide drove us up a narrow road to a vantage point where we could look out over the land and see where lava once flowed and where heat and molten rock created bulges... More

We very much appreciate our 4 star reviews, but would love to know how we can earn that extra star from you in the future. What would really "knock it... More
