We traveled to Yellowstone in September and spent two days with our Yellowstone Luxury tour guide Doug Black. It was one of the best decisions we made to have a private guided tour. Doug is incredibly knowledgeable and showed us the park from the best vantage points. We highly recommend this company to our friends and family.

Don’t think about it – don’t try and do Yellowstone by yourself especially if you only have one day like we did. Our experience with this company was top notch. They come to you wherever you are staying and pick you up. Our tour guide Austin was awesome! He was everything you wanted in a tour guide especially with a van with 14 people in it. I echo the sentiments of my other family members who have also written reviews that the entire experience was made more extraordinary because of Austin. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever written a review until now; I felt it was important to do so because the service we received from this company and Austin was that good. I do also echo the criticisms of the transportation AC – on a very hot day with 14 people, you need to up your Freon game and make sure your AC is top notch. There were times where it was a bit stifling in the van particularly since only the front windows opened. Perhaps not the best mode of transportation for such a big group and a hot August day. But other than that, will be raving about that trip for years to come. Worth every dime.

We decided after we had already arrived in Big Sky ,(not recommended to this so late ), to book a private tour through Yellowstone through “Natural Retreats Luxury Yellowstone tours”. We were a group of 18 and they accommodated us into 2 vehicles . Austin was incredible tour guide. His enthusiasm was contagious. He made an effort to accommodate all of our requests .
He was knowledgeable and entertaining at the same time. We had a wonderful picnic lunch right on the lake.
Expected to be gone from 7:30 AM until 2 PM and we were having such a tremendous time that we agreed to stay until 7:30 PM ... this was due in large part by Austin‘s ability to entertain and his still childlike enthusiasm to share all the wonders of this amazing national treasure .
Considered the less expensive option of driving ourselves to the park while using some random app talking to us. We are so glad that we opted for the more expensive option ...worth every penny be sure and ask for Austin .
Only negative was the power of the air conditioning in the van ....that could’ve been improved a bit.

We had a total of 13 people in our party and the accommodations were perfect!!!
We wanted to focus more on seeing animals and not the "touristy" spots of Yellowstone. And we did just that! The lunch was great and we really loved every bit of the experience...... Traveling with 4 children under 11 can sometimes be challenging, but the guide kept them looking for wildlife and telling great facts about the park.

My family and friends traveled to Big Sky last week. And a trip to Yellowstone was a much anticipated adventure we all wished to experience. As no one had any real clue the best way to see such a massive location we opted to employ the services of Yellowstone Luxury Tour. They picked us up at our Rental home ( on time) and between a nice Mercedes Van and a suburban they accommodated our party with out a problem. Our guide for the day was Austin. Austin hands down is the type of guide you want for a trip like this. He was knowledgeable, motivated, excited, friendly, and engaged the entire time. He may not follow the mold of where to be at what time, but he delivered on every promise he made and went above and beyond to ensure every last one of us had the BEST experience. Ask for Austin, you will not regret it.

Brett our tour guide was an absolute pleasure and wealth of knowledge. He knew exactly what spots to hit and and what spots to skip pending the time of day. The amount we saw on our full day tour would have easily taken us 2+ days on our own and the history / facts about each feature would have been completely overlooked without Brett. This tour with Brett was easily the highlight of our one week trip of Yellowstone & Jackson.

I would recommend Yellowstone Luxury Tours 100/100 and would give the same rating to Brett! After looking at some of the other other user reviews it looks like they only employee the most knowledgable and top tier tour guides.

The sheer scope of Yellowstone is overwhelming! It was such a treat to have Brett show us around on our first day in Yellowstone. He was extremely knowledgeable of the park and its features. He was very patient with our kids and helped make exploring safe and fun. He also gave us tips for our second day in the park and saved us a ton of wasted time!

Plentiful literature and Park personnel make trips into Yellowstone safe and easy. The sights are easy to access and well marked. But two friends and I took a chance that our first trip into Yellowstone would benefit from a guided tour, to give us insights not found in books, save us missteps, and just plain make it easier to look around by having someone else do the driving. (Driving 200 miles a day in the Park is normal.)

We were absolutely delighted with our Yellowstone Luxury Tour! Austin (a.k.a., "Oscar") was our guide. For 10 hours he drove, stopped, informed, laughed, and listened. His energy and enthusiasm never wavered. We tapped his services not for the loop that includes Old Faithful (West entrance, Madison, West Thumb) because that seemed like a popular route we could do on our own later. Our priority was to see animals, in addition to geologic features like geysers and basins, on the road(s) less traveled. So he took us toward Norris up to Mammoth Springs (with a wonderful side visit to Gardiner) over to the Lamar Valley and down through Yellowstone's Grand Canyon. This is still a popular route, but perhaps less congested and with a better chance of seeing bison, elk, and other animals.

Austin truly customized the tour. He "tuned in" to our interests to find animals and land features exactly as we'd hoped. But he was also smart enough to show us, as first-time visitors, features we didn't know to ask about. Austin is extremely knowledgeable about the Park's features, history, and health, but he didn't overwhelm us. He is clearly committed to the Park's well being and to the beauty of Montana and Wyoming in general; he shared that enthusiasm, again, without overwhelming. And as practical matters, he knew how to navigate busy parking lots (people tend to stop at the entrance to wait for an opening, causing cars to back up on the road, while spaces farther along are actually open); where the best bathrooms are; and which vantage points might yield the best views.

It was an extravagance for us to book this tour. It was worth every penny. Kudos to Austin and to Yellowstone Luxury Tours whose management is smart enough to hire folks like Austin.

We did a full day tour of Yellowstone with Blake. It was unbelievable! We only had one day to explore Yellowstone, and we would have never been able to do it without Blake. He was so knowledgeable and had spent his whole life in Montana. He was able to take us to all the sites, tell us about the history and life growing up in the area. I would highly recommend this tour and Blake. Amazing!!!

Derek studied environmental sciences so he was incredibly knowledgeable about everything we saw. Plus he managed to avoid crowds at every stop. He arranged getting to Old Faithful early which was great because it erupted about 15 minutes earlier than expected. He thought to pack a perfect lunch and found a great spot by the lake. He's a very safe driver and really entertained my three teenage sons.
