Just completed a tour of Skeleton Cave with our guide Chip and it was remarkable. Chip was on his "A game". He fielded every question, including ones like where to find a good vegetarian/vegan restaurant in town. The cave was awesome and the information Chip provided was relevant, informative, and fun. On top of all that Chip was from the... More

Flat out awesome. Took my daughter (11) on a guided cave tour. Having gone numerous times myself in other caves, had low expectations for "adventure". Could not have been more wrong! Courtney was awesome - incredibly knowledgeable about the cave eco-system, the local eco-system, and she made it fun and engaging for the adults and kids as well. My daughter... More

Last week, I was on vacation with my family in Bend, OR and decided to do a starlit canoeing expedition on Sparks Lake. Our guide (Danny) was incredibly personable and professional. He provided history and trivia about the Cascade mountain range all the way to the lake and got to know everyone in the van by name. When we started... More

We kayaked at a beautiful mountain lake, and our guide, Nick, was full of information about the geology, flora and fauna throughout. He even got our kids to eat some lichen! Although we are outdoors people ourselves and were a bit skeptical about being taken on a tour, we did so because we aren't familiar with the area and didn't... More

My family went on the starlight canoe tour in late August. Our tourguide Danny was wonderful- he was polite, funny and extremely knowledgeable about local ecology, geology and history. He was able to answer everyone's off-the-wall questions with ease and humor. It's also worth noting that he was a very safe and cautious driver. The canoe trip was fabulous! Danny... More

Had a brilliant morning in lava tubes with Courtney who was a great guide - knowledgeable, excited, fun, enthusiastic. She managed to convince us to have a go at some minor 'climbing' (more like rock scrambling but more than we've ever tried before). As well as Courtney being great so were the office staff. We were the only ones wanting... More

A wonderful, peaceful and fun day with guide Danny. We had a broad age range for our kayak trip and this lake accommodated all ability. Danny was so knowledgeable about the history, flora and fauna of the area with a pleasant delivery. My daughters and I had a delightful day .

My husband and I wanted to choose a unique way to celebrate our anniversary, and chose the Starlit Canoe ride with Danny. I never write reviews - just do yourself a favor and book with Wanderlust. We were on a fabulous two week trip and this was the highlight. Our tour guide Danny kept the group safe and told stories... More

My husband and I did the daytime brews and views tour on Sparks Lake for our 10-year Wedding Anniversary. Our guide was Nick and he was fantastic. He had a great sense of humor, and knew an insane amount about the area, plus he did a great job with explaining the different beers. I would highly recommend Wanderlust if you... More
