Leroy was the best, he knew all about the local peoples, animals, plants and landscape and he was very nice.

Agreed! Leroy is a Great Tour guide, and from what I hear he can dance pretty good also! Thanks for traveling with us to the Grand Canyon.

Took the Grand Canyon-Monument Valley 2 day tour last September.
Still have the vivid memories of it hunting me during my daily chores. The places are absolutely fabulous, but the HUGE plus was the touring company, and particularly Jim; our knowledgeable, fun, guide. His passion for this part of the land is amazing, and does not fall short in juicy anecdotes of his time living with the Navajo.
The tour group was a very nice group of tourists from different nationalities and a very fun bunch.
This tour is not for those who do not like extras and believe you should only see what is on the schedulle...we did MUCH more. Comfy van, drinks, good chat and lots of stops along the way.
Would tour with them for sure. I has been the best tour ever.

I am so glad you enjoyed your trip to Monument Valley with our owner Jim Vaughan. Since Vaughan"s Southwest Custom Tours is a family owned and operated business Jim does as many tours as he can himself. He a very fun person to travel with.

I highly recommend the visit for the breath taking views at the grand canyon, as for the guide is one of the most informative tour I've ever been on.

Our tour guide Rich went the extra mile to get us the IMAX tickets and accommodate that as we wanted to watch it but it was not part of the tour. I really appreciated that. He was very informative and knowledgeable in explaining the history and the background of all the places we went by during the drive from Phoenix all the way to the Grand Canyon. My suggestion is to get the tour which spends overnight at the Grand Canyon as the 1 day trip was too tight. You won't be able to do/see a lot of things e.g the Grand Canyon train ride, helicopter ride etc. There wasn't much leg room in the van and with the 8 hours time spent in the van, it wasn't really comfortable. Other than that, we did enjoyed the tour as Sedona and Grand Canyon is really a wonder to be seen by your own eyes.

We did a fantastic day trip to the Grand Canyon and Sedona last week with Vaughan's Southwest Custom Tours. Our driver, Dan, was a wonderful tour guide; very knowledgeable with a great sense of humor. DD and I did the optional helicopter tour and it was worth every penny, I highly recommend it. The next time we are in the area, I would love to book an overnight tour to Grand Canyon NP. Dan did a terrific job showing us as much as he could in such a limited amount of time. I would request him again if possible.
