We had a great tour. Jared was very knowledgeable of the area and had a wonderful personality. We will definitely use Wonderlust again.

This was our second tour with Wanderlust. The day before we did the Brew Tour with Chip and had a great time. The same high quality standards was evident in the Moonlight canoe tour with Courtney. Imagine canoing in the inky night with only the stars and bright moon. Surrounded by trees with the occasional random sounds (bull frog? duck?... More

To start with... The entire Wanderlust Staff... James and Katie were great to deal with... Extremely accommodating! Regarding the Four Pour Tour... Great way to do something different in a responsible way (via Brew Bus) Our host, Chip, besides sharing his knowledge of the area's key statistics... Was hilarious!!! (laughed at all our jokes... We had to laugh at his)... More

We recently did the Bend Pour Tour and highly recommend it!. This tour takes you to 1 brewery, 1 winery, 1 cidery and 1 distillery. Our tour guide Chip was very knowledgeable, friendly and fun. We were able to meet with the distillers and brewers, talk about their processes and see the inner workings, plus taste and enjoy appetizers. Perfect... More

We were two canoes in a group of seven, when the last canoe, containing two women, capsized throwing the two into the lake. Our guide with remarkable speed and professionalism paddled back to the two, rescuing them both and taking them back to warm up in the van while the rest of our group, with his return and guidance, finished...

I learned so much about stars! Danny is a fantastic guide and a lovely host to a really special place (we took the moonlight canoe tour). Every detail was thought of and it was a highlight of my husband and I's trip.

My husband and I took our adult kids on this tour. Our guide, Danny, drove us to the lake while narrating local history and geography info. We paddled around and then pulled onto shore to taste some Deschutes beer. We saw lots if birds and fish up close. A great way to enjoy nature and have some fun! This company... More

My husband and I went on a tour of Skeleton Cave with Jared over Labor Day weekend. It was a great experience, and Jared was a very knowledgeable tour guide. The lava tube cave was like nothing we had seen before. It was awesome that we were the only tour group there, and it didn't feel "touristy." We enjoyed this... More

My husband and I took an early anniversary trip to Bend in mid-August and had the most amazing time with Chip! I called Wanderlust Tours on Friday, August 8th and spoke to Katie (?) who was extremely helpful about the last minute questions I had about booking one of their canoe tours - which I did that very day online....

We decided to do the Local Pour Tour as our post wedding celebration vs. a wedding "dance". The only complaint I have is that it out shined our ceremony!!! LOL!! Our guests LOVED the tour!! At every stop I heard "This is the best wedding EVER!!" We had four stops, Cascade Lakes Brewery, Volcano Winery, Atlas Cider, and Oregon Spirit... More
