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!

It was great. The only negative was the limited view availability from the third seat. We would suggest using vehicles with full sun roofs so people in third seat could see.

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.

Lukas is absolutely wonderful to work with and helped me plan an exceptional trip to Bryce Canyon and Lake Powell. He always found a way to go above and beyond of each excursion. Our guides, Jason and Steve, were amazing. They were both very knowledgeable about both location, engaging with the family, kept great time for our busy day and made sure every one was smiling and having a good time. I would be lucky to work with both of these guys again.

We had a simply wonderful time on our 4 day tour. It far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Mike Sellers was so helpful and his expertise regarding all that we were seeing made everything more enjoyable. What a beautiful part of our wonderful country, and how fortunate we were to be seeing it via Utah Luxury Tours and Mike. He became not only our guide but a friend as well. Thanks so much!

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

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

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.

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.

Our trip with Utah Luxury Tours was truly one of the greatest vacations I have ever taken. I could not have asked for a better guide than Tom Allen. In the four full days we were away I am still amazed by how much we were able to see in Jackson and Yellowstone. Tom provided us with so much information as he took us in around the parks. He was extremely patient with my 8 year old daughter and my husbands questions. I would with out a doubt recommend Utah Luxury Tours to all of my family and friends. And I would absolutely tell that if they can request a guide, they should ask for Tom. Thank you for the amazing experience.

Our overall trip was great

Steve Bodo was great, knowledgeable, attentive and flexible. The hotels and food were excellent. (One small issue, I thought we were getting 2 beds per room at the Gonzo Inn in Moab and we got 1 bed and 1 foldout bed.)

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.

Incredible tour, incredible views, and incredible people.

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.
