We were due to get married this year but had to post-pone it a year so we went on this preanniversary trip and on the day and time we should have been getting married, we chose to kayak and it was so amazing and is now a very treasured memory.

Our tour guide Courtney was full of interesting information about the area and we learned so much. She was kind and made us feel safe and comfortable for our first kayaking experience. She was just a joy to spend time with. The lake was beautiful and the wildlife amazing. We intend to come back and do more of the tours offered by Wanderlust. We couldn't have had the same experience without them.

We had a great time with Wanderlust Tours. Our trip to Hosmer Lake was so relaxing and beautiful! It was a perfect experience, especially for us as beginning kayakers. Our guide Courtney was very sweet and had a great personality. She was also very educated and gave us lots of interesting factoids about the area and plants and wildlife.

We were fortunate enough to plan two tours with our children: a cave tour and a starlight canoe trip around the lake. I cannot impart enough how professional, friendly and accommodating our guides were on these trips. Jeff, who took us to Skeleton Cave and Greg, who guided our family of four around the lake at night, were incredibly relaxed and professional and shared with us an impressive & vast knowledge of our surroundings. I was a bit concerned about the cost of these two trips for four of us but I can honestly say it was worth every dime. Our 8 and 13-year-olds raved about both excursions. We were so impressed by this tour company that we are planning a bigger tour with them in the spring. Five stars for this company.

Our guide, Greg, was exceptionally knowledgeable and made our tour all the more enjoyable. We did the Volcano Tour and it was well worth it. We COULD have driven ourselves up to Paulina Peak, but we were quite willing to let Greg take us up, especially on the last couple miles of winding gravel roads...not for the faint of heart! (or heights!) And the view was spectacular! There are also bathrooms at the peak. Then to have the chance to walk with Greg as our guide on the lava bed was great! Again, he was so full of information, he made it much more enjoyable than if we had done it ourselves. I highly recommend Wunderlust Tours and if we ever get to Oregon again, we're going to look them up and take the starlight canoe tour. We ran out of time this trip. We are active seniors and the whole tour was a wonderful experience and not difficult for us at all. The lava bed part may be tricky for some with problems walking though, BUT Greg was willing to accommodate anyone with walking difficulties by adjusting our tour as needed. Highly recommended!
