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

Thanks so much for your review! We are so glad that you had a good time and love the photo you posted from your hike on the Big Obsidian Flow. 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

If you want to explore the area it is best to do it with people who live there full time and run a non-seasonal business. Wanderlust has a great reputation and I've never heard any complaints. The last tour we went on was a moon-lit canoe experience on a local lake. Everyone returned dry and had a great time. Truly... More

Had a great time with Courtney on our tour. She has amazing credentials and was a great guide for 4 novice snowshoe guys. Very knowledgeable about what we were seeing, pace was perfect and the brews were wonderful! Recommend highly for alternative in Bend when not skiing or drinking

We have been on to tours with Wanderlust, and were fortunate enough to have Courtney as our guide both times. On our cave tour, we enjoyed trivia and fun with Courtney, who is both well informed and confident. She was able to convince my mother-in-law to climb into a higher lava tube, and help her feel safe and comfortable, though... More

We were attracted to this moonlight snowshoe event on Mt. Bachelor by Trip Advisor reviewers, and we were NOT disappointed. Courtney was our guide on the three hour trip and she was super in every way. We learned how to wear and use the snowshoes, as well as became aware of the flora and fauna of the high desert plateau.... More

We went on a Starlight Snowshoeing tour with Nick, he was fantastic. He had great knowledge of Central Oregon's unique landscape and history, taught us how to navigate by the stars and gave us information on constellations we could see that night, and also had a deep knowledge in the natural wildlife of the area, showing us how to identify...
