Steve was awesome! He was reliable, helpful, and informative - everything you want in a guide. But beyond that he was fun without being intrusive and turned a great trip into an incredible experience.

Fantastic. The tour was great. We covered a lot of territory in four days. Matt was our tour guide. He was fantastic. He had great stories for every park we visited. He also has broad knowledge on many subjects, so he can talk to anyone on just about every subject. The tour company responded immediately to any questions we had before our tour and during our tour. Great company.

Wow what a trip. Talking about another now

Very worthwhile. Could NOT have seen anything close to this on our own in two days!

Matt is very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Some of the rides were a little long but we know that is the only way to cover the distances. We could have used more time at Bryce. Awesome country.

This was the amazing trip! Steve Bodo was absolutely the best guide and friend. He was the most knowledgeable and professional and fun person. We are planning to come back on a fly fishing trip in the next year and Utah Luxury tours with Steve as Our guide.

Fantastic tour..well planned and well executed..we unfortunately had a few challenges with my friend's mother passing away just as the tour was about to start but our guide Matt dealt with it very well and was very understanding and accommodating helping Mary return home mid trip

Simply AWESOME. Well worth the cost. Tom was exceptional in helping us spend a memorable week in Utah. His warmth and style added to our enjoyment of the parks, sights and adventures. The trip was well plan and executed. Would highly recommend Utah Luxury Tours for others to enjoy the wonders of Utah.

Great trip! This private tour was very family friendly with plenty of opportunities for all the different ages and abilities to enjoy the various aspects of the parks! Beautiful scenery and wonderful hikes! Tom was very personable, always on time and accommodating for the various needs of our family of 7! So much to do, wish we could have had more time!

We had a fabulous trip! I can't say enough good things about the experience. From calling and talking to Brian (instead of a phone tree) to Jason Willard, our guide, you just couldn't have done a better job. The amazing scenery speaks for itself!!! Huge kudos to Jason. He was truly the best guide anyone could ever have. Knowledgeable, kind, attentive to any needs we had, and the best driver I have ever seen!

Our overall trip was great

One of the best travel experiences I ever had!

Had a wonderful time. Our guide Richard made our experience not only customized to meet our needs but up close and personal.

Tom was a fantastic guide. The tour exceeded our expectations.

The parks of Utah are overwhelming. You have an amazing product to sell and have devised an excellent way of marketing it. The individualism of this “tour” was ideal for us. We saw everything we expected, and more, in a very tight schedule. Jason’s short tour of Salt Lake City and suggestion of an exceptional restaurant were added plusses to the trip.
Oct 16, 2017
Great trip! Would recommend it highly to others.

Mike is the ultimate professional. Compassionate about his work and sensitive to his clints' needs. Fun too! What a magical trip. From beginning stages of planning through the end of our trip, your staff was most accommodating.

Pick up at airport on arrival at SLC did not arrive after 40 mins so had to tel to get our promised transfer. Second night of our tour took 20 mins to find our room reservation as was booked by your office in their name. Otherwise the trip was very good.

Steve worked with my sister to provide a customized hiking and sightseeing package that worked perfectly for us. He had cold drinks and plenty of snacks, ,great hotels, a comfortable car, and chose restaurants we thoroughly enjoyed. Steve knows the area we explored extremely well and guided us to breathtaking sights and hikes at our level of experience. Definitely a trip worth the time and money.
Aug 30, 2017
As expected Tom is absolutely THE BEST. He really knows his stuff and he gets along with the kids great. We love him and he is so friendly.
Jun 15, 2018
I totally enjoyed the tour. Jason tried his best to accommodate our every need and plan around our limited ability to climb. That area was more beautiful than I anticipated. Though the drive was long, he broke it up with little side trips. Highly recommend it.

Great trip. Evolved just as we laid it out. Everything went smooth.
Jun 21, 2018
Good fun!

Our guide was Steve and he is a gem. He was knowledgeable, personable and very accommodating. He made our tour so enjoyable and made it so interesting. One can tell that he loves his job and sharing his wealth of information.

Steve Bodo, a destination specialist for the Utah luxury tours was outstanding, and gave us all the information concerning all the national parks. His expertise in knowing where to go and what times were the best to view the parks cannot be overstated. I highly recommend him as a specialist , For the Utah luxury tours.

I can’t recommend Utah Lyxury Tours highly enough. I took a semi private tour and it was FABULOUS. The logistics went smoothly and the choice of hotels was good. Of course the standout was the parks themselves. Absolutely Fabulous. But most of all the tour guide Steve Bodo was AWESOME. Even though I was travelling alone I wa# made to feel part of the family. He was everything you need in a tour guide with a great knowledge of the parks and a good sense of humour.

Incredible tour, incredible views, and incredible people.

We enjoyed it.

Our trip to Bryce, Zion, Lake Powell and Grand Canyon was perfect and spectacular in every way. Matt made our trip fun, educational, interesting and the right amount of challenge for all 9 of us. Truly a job well done and so appreciated. I would absolutely use UTL again for any future National Park trips.

Matt was amazing! He was super flexible to deal exceptionally well with 3 generations of crazy (each in our own way) adventurers on an unconventional trip through southwestern Utah. Bravo, Matt!!
