Took this tour with Chaney in early July. The monument is a breathtakingly beautiful place. The tour is a great overview of what is in the park and makes one want to return for a longer period of time to explore all the trails and viewpoints. Chaney did a perfect job in guiding the tour, giving us information on how... More

Wanderlust has always been a good neighbor in our community in many ways. They can always be found on contribution lists for non profits throughout the year. I flyfish a local lake where Wanderlust Tours take clients for Canoe tours. On occasion there has been a small rub between the two activities on the lake. But not with Wanderlust. I... More

My family was treated to an enjoyable and educational evening with guide Courtney Braun. This young lady had a passion and knowledge of area geography and astronomy that was contagious. We did the moonlight canoe paddle on Elk Lake. Being the summer, it took a while for the stars to come out but once they did, we all were amazed... More

With Jack as our guide, our group was able to really understand everything that we were seeing on our drive to Elk Lake and under the stars on our canoe trip as he has vast and varied knowledge of the area. After a quick drive up the mountain, we put in our canoes at Elk Lake. It was a little... More

An awesome experience and lots of fun with two teens. Great guide, easy booking, cool trip (we went to Skeleton Cave). Bring your layers and water bottle, and don't worry if you have small kids though. They will love the little crevices only they can fit into. Thanks so much to Chaney et all!!

I was looking for something a bit different while traveling through Bend. I called Wanderlust and was able to join a group the same day. The people were easy to deal with. I was on a motorcycle this trip. I had a large pack and layers of riding gear and did not want to leave it attached to the motorcycle.... More

We had a canoe trip with Chainey. Sorry Chainey. I misspelled. He was great, extremely knowledgable and laid back. We had a great time, beautiful surrounding, memories and pics forever.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of attending a Wanderlust Event and it was fantastic in every way!We did a canoe trip down a nice quiet part of the Deschutes River just above Dillion Falls. Jack was our guide for the trip and he was wonderful! He knew so much history about the area and helped people who... More

An evening traveling to several breweries around Bend with friends. We were picked up at our hotel, driven around to all locations with narration along the way, informed about each brewery and then we enjoyed. Dinner was included at one of the breweries. Our driver and narrator was excellent and very knowledgeable. The brews were quite good but the dinner... More
