Hello Brian, Lukas and Chris
Kevin Rasband, our guide… I want to thank you for a good tour which was organized extremely fast. This is not easy.
The general schedule was good. The hotels were fine apart from the way over price and rated resort in Moab.
Hotel Telluride was particularly pleasant. The suite at the Grand Hotel America was very impressive.
We like Keven and we enjoyed the first tour. He is so kind, so concerned about the company, very much into details like always having water and food for us in the car, washing the car every night, showing up always 15 minutes early and so on. The last day with him, driving from Yellow Stone to Salt Lake was too long. It would have been better to sleep back to Jackson Hole reducing the driving for the next day.
We like to build adrenaline and for us the ride on mules down the Grand Canyon or climbing the Angel Landing is more fun that to walk around the geysers. But, this is us and we wanted to visit Yellow Stone.
Again, thank you and if you have any specific question, you will always get a blunt answer from me.
Dear Utah Luxury Tours,
It's been a few weeks and we're getting back to our normal routine. Just want to thank you again for the amazing trip (covering 5 states and 5 National Parks) you custom tailored for us. The parks were great, the scenery spectacular, and the amount of territory we covered was unreal. But the true essence of the trip was our guide's enthusiastic involvement, pleasantness, patience, and flexibility, from his accommodation of our dietary requirements to his detailed knowledge of all the areas we travelled. This made the journey not only extremely enjoyable, but informative and educational as well. Please feel free to use us as a reference for your unique touring company.
Best regards from Howard, Mimi, Maurice and Susan.

Tom, While we were on our trip with you last week, you mentioned about the Senior Pass price going up. It was a fortunate coincidence that I ran into a national park ranger at the grocery store and we struck up a conversation. I was reminded that the Chattahoochee park, about 3 miles from our home, was where I needed to go to the main office to get my pass. So, I definitely went this afternoon, as after this Sunday the price will go up to $80 per senior pass (as you mentioned). If Michael goes by this office this weekend, we'll have 2 senior passes! We want to personally thank you again for your kindness, your sharing so much interesting information with us, and your caring that we received an education on both the history of the national parks, and also, even though we were not active hikers, you found a way to show us the most beautiful, unique, and peaceful parts of each park. Your diligence, as a very intelligent person and guide is what made our 4-day visit to this wonderland so extraordinary. You are indeed a "guide extraordinaire" and we were fortunate that you were available when we planned a great vacation at almost the last minute.
I think we were so impressed with the majesty of the parks we visited, that it helped sharpen our high standards of philanthropy which we especially pass-on to our children and employees. We returned home and brought to conclusion our plans for our wine auction last night. It was a tremendous experience and success, and we were able to raise many more dollars for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Keep enjoying those great experiences in the great outdoors!
A quick note of appreciation to you, Utah luxury Tours and your most efficient, knowledgeable and amiable guide Jason, for making our Utah experience most memorable and enjoyable. We were absolutely delighted from beginning to end. The Parks were outstanding and the service and efficiency of your entire operation were truly outstanding.

HI Lukas and Brian
To be fast – just wanted to say we had an unbelievable time that well exceeded our hopes and expectations – short of sitting next to a feeding grizzly, we could not have seen or experienced more.
We therefore fully endorse Utah Luxury Tours and Teton Science School and will write a more detailed report later – we are still travelling and expect to be back in Europe on June 6.
We miss Tom and Sarah – they were brilliant – totally professional but lovely companions too – we feel we made two good friends
Have to go – best wishes
Hi BrianOur trip was wonderful. Thank you for all of your help with planning and for sending Tom. We absolutely adored him! If we ever return to Moab, I will definitely reach out. It was a wonderful experience and I hope to return.
Just wanted to drop you a note to say we had a fantastic tour last week! Thank you for everything—all the hotels were fantastic, and just the right picks for us, and the program Mike put together worked just fine. Mike is a really special guy and we quickly became a group of 4 who moved with the ease and familiarity of friends. I know there was a lot of work by Mike behind the scenes each day that helped make our trip as great as it was, and we appreciate him for that.
Brian, I am so very honored to say "Bucket List 1" is done, it was way beyond my wishes, and it was a thrill to see all those amazing, sacred places and share it with my beloved daughters. It was truly a FANTASTIC experience and I am so grateful.
Thank you again, and huge High Five to Mike!Sue
We wish to express how much we enjoyed the three-day MIGHTY 5 TOUR during our visit to Utah this month. What you provided was just what we were seeing. To celebrate an 80th birthday, we decided to splurge by "investing" in one of the luxury tours for sale by your company. The gamble paid off: you delivered all that you promised in your brochure and website ... and then some.
We appreciate the thoughtfulness, intelligence, meticulous planning, and care that went into the customized "package". We delighted in an unforgettable experience. The comfortable vehicle, the well-balanced itinerary, the ideal lodgings, and the valuable dining tips -- these were all right on the mark. Your design and your execution were superb. Kudos, above all, to your supremely gifted driver/guide Kevin Rasband. As is to be expected of your destination specialists, Kevin was knowledgeable and informative about the scenery and geology and history of southern Utah. His broad and deep experience showed itself in countless ways as he shared with us his enthusiasm and fascinating bits of information. Our convenience was paramount with Kevin. For example, he loaned to us trekking poles during our hikes and assisted us in navigating the medium-level Navajo Loop/ Queens Garden trail in Bryce Canyon. He took pictures with his own iPhone during our jaunts through the national parks and monuments, thereby sparing us the distraction of using our own camera. Later on, be provided us with a thumb drive containing these precious photos. Kevin's kindness and attention to detail and concern for our enjoyment and safety allowed us to relax and savor a glorious three days of touring. In addition, he met us at the Amtrak train station the night we arrived from Boston and came in the middle of the night on Monday, the 25th, to bring us to the train station for our return home.
Thank you so much for all your hard work, dedication, and effort. You have truly made this vacation very special for me, and one I will never forget. I am grateful for the kindness and generosity that you constantly extended to me to ensure that my visit was seamless and comfortable.

Thank you again

We had an incredible time with Kevin. Kevin's knowledge, where to go for extra bears, moose, colors, waterfalls, geysers, reflections, deer, antelope, baby bears, swans, stalactites, goblins, uranium, rivers, canyons, rock dancing, great food -especially the Dead Horse Point picnic, etc etc etc made the trip extremely extra special.
Joan you choose a great group.Pat & Kate
Hi Lukas and Steve,
Matt and I want to thank you, Utah Luxury Tours for such a wonderful and memorable 50th Anniversary celebration tour and dinner. The entire trip was incredible and we cannot say enough about Steve Bayne. He was an excellent guide, driver and companion for the trip. Such a treat to share it with someone who truly appreciates the importance and knowledge of the parks. The geological scenery of the National Parks was breathtaking and we shall never forget them.
As we told Steve we will recommend your company to all we share our trip with. Excellent and once again we thank you and Steve for creating such a memorable 50th Anniversary!

Dear Lukas and Mike
Mary Ann and I wish to say is how grateful we are to Mike Sellers for showing us Southern Utah, the parks and the extremely nice people we came in contact with thru out our Tour.
Mike did a superb job of educating Mary Ann and I on the geologic history of the parks and the history of the Utah peoples and area. Mike is a fabulous guide.We just got our pictures back and they are great, all of our retired Dr's, Lawyers, Bankers, and Oilies want to know all about our trip. They are just like us we all have been to Europe, other continents, ship excursions thru many oceans now it is time to appreciate the good ole USA. Thank you for a splendid week. We give Utah Luxury Tours a A++++
Best Regards, Don and Mary Ann Haskins
It's been over a month now since we had our tour with you. We still can't stop talking about it. We loved it and you were a big part of what made it great. I took over 1000 pictures and could have taken more. I said I'd send you some, here is a small sample. I will send a separate email with the portrait shot I took of you just before we took off for antelope canyon, I like the way it turned out.
I hope you enjoyed your travels after our trip. Again, thank you for a most memorable vacation, we really appreciated the way you taught us and took care of us.
All the best,
We just arrived back home and wanted to thank you for such a wonderful trip and your introduction to Amy. Without your expertise we would have missed many of the areas that you took us to. We were fortunate to grab part of our last day on Sunday and visited Temple Square. That was something else as well… Probably a thin spot!
I have just flipped through the book on Utah and it reinforces the beauty of the area we were so lucky to visit.
Kindest regards and thank you.

Brian and Matt,
I wanted to thank you both personally for making our trip to Utah memorable. It was wonderful to see several of the most beautiful parks in the world and to learn so much along the way. Brian, I am grateful for your efforts at creating a trip that met everyone's needs from age 12 - 74 and Matt, you adjusted along the way, shared your knowledge and enthusiasm and good nature every moment. I know we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to sharing our experience with family and friends and coming back out west on another tour.
Hope you both have a wonderful and successful summer.
Looking forward to seeing you again,
Our family is reasonably well traveled and yet we all agreed our trip with ULT was one of our most interesting and enjoyable. This is in no small measure due to the efforts of Kevin. What a delightful guide and companion. We all found Kevin to be interesting, fun, enthusiastic and literally omnipresent to help us with all and everything. He is an asset to your company and we all miss him. Thank you for your patience in putting this trip together for us and for the handsome coffee table book on Utah. We hope to be sending you some referrals in the future but it sounds as if you may not be needing them. Congratulations on your growth!
Jud, Eva, and Hillary Stone
Thanks so much for a wonderful trip. The tour was beautiful and we loved Kevin. Everyone had a very memorable vacation.
Also want to say thank you for the See's candy. Sweet surprise for our last night in Utah. Hope to be back in the future!!
The Holiday Family
Just a few short notes to tell you about our trip. I don't think Kevin could have been better. He was a complete gentlemen, always on time.
Every day he had the car ready: full of gas, washed and cooler ready. He was very courteous to both my wife and Me. Since I am also a former serviceman we had some great conversations.
Although both my wife and I can't do strenuous hiking Kevin would have been more than ready to oblige. He was very knowledgeable about all of the areas we visited.
It would be hard to say which of parks we enjoyed more which is a comment you probably hear often. As I mentioned before our booking, we would like to stay in more upscale rooms. You certainly came through. The cabin we had stayed in at the Zion Mountain Ranch was great. It was beautifully appointed and could recommend it highly.
In closing, add me to your list of referrals. You certainly provided a Utah Luxury Tour.
Thank you for all you did to make our trip so wonderful. Everything was perfect, the bus, the skillful driver, the pace of the tour and the hotel an oasis after the long ride. You handled everything so that I could enjoy my guests without a care
The best of luck in the future
You have been a most wonderful guide. Thank you so much for getting the needed equipment for the Narrows, even though it meant going to three places and taking hours. Thank you for going on a horse with me when my parents said they wouldn’t go. The pictures are great and I hope that you will send me more pictures. Can you tell your daughter that she is so kind and elegant? You are a perfect guide.
With good wishes,
Your shadow (Anya)
P.S. Thank you for trying to get the costume for me! I’m sure I will find it!
Hello! It’s me, Anya. You are a WONDERFUL guide. And I mean wonderful. Can you tell Hannah that she is a marvelous girl?
Thank you for everything. Anya
Thank you for organizing such a wonderful tour for us – we thoroughly enjoyed all the places we visited and the commentary you provided, and your high degree of professionalism. We wish you all the very best for the future.

We had a blast with you and I sung your praises at Sorrell. Thanks so much for teaching us how to fly fish and thanks for the pictures! We missed the elk unfortunately…

When vacationing and the circumstance requires a taxi or shuttle service, I have two requirements. Having worked hard for my vacation, it is essential my vehicle travel experience is representative of my perceived work reward and secondly, I want to feel safe in the environment; from the vehicle itself, the professionalism of the driver, to the manner in which the vehicle is handled and shows. A vacation traveling experience should be relaxing and worry free.
I engaged Moab Luxury Coach for my transportation experience from Grand Junction to Moab because of their presented image. Not only did they meet my travelling experience, they exceeded my expectations in all areas of service. From the arrivals area-welcoming greeting, to an engaging, friendly conversation over an hour and half worry free travel experience to Moab. I enjoyed my travel reward and as such, I wouldn’t hesitate in reserving with Moab Luxury Coach in the future. In this particular case, luxury coach service is not a slogan but rather an operating standard one can rely on.
PS: My friend, Thank you for the tour on Sunday. My pictures turned out great, as was the experience of sharing part of the day with you.
I am the blessed soul that you rescued from the Salt Lake City airport.
My office asked me to go to Green River instead of stopping at Price. You certainly have blessed my day with your wonderful driver services. Since I am a passenger instead of driver, I am able to see the beautiful landscapes and mountain rages that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. You have my permission to post my comments. And I will definitely use your service in the future… With much more notice next time! I posted on FB about Moab Luxury Coach and what a great ride I had with your company…
Cheers & God bless!
Mary A Griffin
Recently we traveled with your company Moab Luxury Coach from Moab to Grand Junction. We wanted to thank you for the excellent service - the driver was prompt, the vehicle comfortable, and the service impeccable.
Mary Ann Godwin
Just wanted to send a quick note to say thanks! I used your car service last month into Monticello and had planned to use it again for the return trip, but was able to find my own ride. I was very glad there was something available. Its otherwise not an easy area to navigate without a car - I hope business thrives! The driver was great; the ride was on time and it all made my travel day really easy.
Thanks and all the best,
Hi Lukas and Brian,
I was fortunate enough to utilize your service on May 9th traveling from Sandy to Moab. What a wonderful trip - starting with the pick up at my friend’s house! Lukas was so professional - a true asset to your company I must say.
The 4-hour trip went by so quickly; Lukas was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided historic facts along the way. Lukas continued his excellent service when he offered to take me to the drop off point for my bike trip the following day, another worry that was alleviated! He arrived at the exact time he indicated.
I have nothing but complements for Lukas and your company! I wish you all the best success, as it is hard to find this high level of service in today's world.
All the best and thanks for everything!
