My husband and I went on the Lava Tube Caves tour on Friday. Our guide was Jeff. He was awesome. We really enjoyed talking to him and he was incredibly friendly. We learned more than we ever have on the many tours we've taken. Jeff was extremely knowledgable and had answers to all our questions. Jeff allowed us to explore... More

I journeyed through Boyd Cave a few weeks ago with my guides Chaney and Danny. Boyd cave is a lava tube. Chaney and Danny were amazing guides. Chaney had a wonderful information about the basalt rocks, indigenous peoples that frequented the caves, and animals that would get caught in the cave an die due to no lighting to find their...

I had an extraordinary experience with Wanderlust. I brought a group of clients out from Minnesota and they were blown away by the views, the variety of activities and the incredible depth and breadth of knowledge demonstrated by Jared, our tour guide. We hiked Black Butte, crawled through a Lava Cave and kayaked on the Deschutes River; each place capped... More

We had a great tour of Boyd Cave with Chaney who is so knowledgeable about the surrounding area. He explained in depth about how the tubes were made, the rock and volcanoes. He had such an enthusiasm he made the tour for us.

Enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides! The tour was great fun! You don't need to be an experienced canoer (is that a word?) great berr tasting on a beach too. Beautiful lake!

5 of us that were renting a house in Bend for a week decided to do this tour a few days before hand. I wish we had planned better and done the full moon kayak tour but we'll save that for next time. Jared picked us up at the house on time as scheduled and gave us some insider information... More

We used Wanderlust for two tours out of Bend. We visited the Newberry Volcanic National Monument with Nick and did the Moonlight Canoe trip with Chaney. Both tours were wonderful. The guides were personable and knowledgeable. We especially loved canoeing in the dark. We would certainly recommend both tours and use them again when back in Bend.

We found this place on Trip Advisor and knew after reading all of the great reviews that we needed to do a tour. We settled on a Canoes and Brews tour which matches canoeing with drinking brews, Deschutes Brews, what could be better? We met at the office location and once all of the paperwork and checking in were completed... More

I took an afternoon's kayaking trip with Dave from Wanderlust and a group of friends. It was a most memorable time. Superb views of classic Oregon wilderness: snow capped peaks and pine trees around the lake, with Bald Eagles thrown in for good measure. It was like being in the middle of a promotional film for the Cascade Mountains. Dave... More

Our daughter gave us a treat for a kayak trip and our friends decided to join us. Only 4 of us signed up for this trip which was fabulous! Maybe the not so great weather? Anyway, our tour guide gave us a choice of selecting a lake to kayak in that requires a 45 minute drive and the temps would... More
