Our party of 9 people of all ages was totally blown away by our experience with Courtney as she led us on a lava tube caving adventure. Her calm, confident, well- informed tour was absolutely a highlight of our vacation. Her pacing and demeanor was made the few hours we spent with her fly by and is something we'll remember... More

This was fantastic! My husband and I were invited as part of a customer appreciation event. This would also be so much fun to do with a group of friends or a family. Our naturalist was Jeff and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. While Jeff got the canoes ready, we enjoyed appetizers and beer/wine at Sunset View beach... More

Had so much fun learning about coffee and the different roasting methods from the 3 businesses Wanderlust took us to. James is an excellent tour guide, very funny and entertaining. He gave us interesting tidbits about Bend (the dancing with Flossie art piece) as well history on coffee. Thank you so much for offering this fun tour!

Had a wonderful time kayaking Sparks Lake with Pat from Wanderlust Tours. He was very informative about the scenery and use of the kayak. I would go again if I am in the area.

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

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

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
