It was an awesome one day tour with friends and family. We toured sedona and grand canyon with the help of a very informative tour guide Mr Princely Nesadurai. He was fun and provided minute details on various aspects throughout the tour. At the end of the day we were filled with memories that would last for a life time.

We took this all day tour with Tour Guide Princely Nesadurai and it was the best tour we have ever taken. Princely was VERY knowledgeable of everything between Phoenix and the Grand Canyon. He knew exactly where we could get the best pictures and experience the best at the Grand Canyon and Sadona. He gave us plenty of time to take pictures and was willing to take our pictures with our cameras. He explained the differences of the areas we were going through: The Rocks, trees, bushes, animals and everything. It was a wonderful educational experience.

Although I have lived in Arizona for 16 years this was a wonderful tour. The thought of taking a 500 one day road trip didn't sound very enticing but it was a most relaxing experience.

The guide shared his knowledge freely throughout the day. He had carefully planned stops and took us to places with little or no congestion. Everybody had the chance to do what they wanted...be it shopping or taking photos...or just taking the scene in. It was expertly paced.

This was a wonderful, relaxing day. I have gone on my own before but missed many of these sites. Now I wonder what sites I have missed here in Phoenix, too! I recommend this trip to anybody who has one day to spare be it a visitor or a resident.

We did the Sedona and Grand Canyon Tour our very knowledgeable guide Howard, set the tone early: safety, comfort, fun that was how he runs the tour and in that order. He then proceeded to deliver just that. Howard was pleasant and accommodating all day 14 hours from pickup to return. At each overlook we had plenty of time to take in the magnificent views. Howard provided assistance taking pictures including framing shots. His knowledge of the area was vast and interesting. The van was clean and extremely comfortable. We booked online and saved 10%. If we return to Phoenix I would absolutely book with Vaughan's again.

I am a world traveller. My family and I have chosen to visit The Grand Canyon as our spring break trip this year with our 8-year-old daughter.Traveling with a small child, we knew, wasn't going to be easy. However, we could not have had a better experience without our private tour guide, Princely. Not only was he so knowledgeable about The Grand Canyon, The Sedona, and every trivial details of the Southwest and beyond, but also, he was so polite, patient, and accommodating to the fussiness of our daughter. The vast amount of information Princely shared with us was priceless. He took us to the best spots, where most tourists did not know existed. Not only was he a safe driver, he also possesses a great photography skill, and has produced gorgeous family picturesfor us to cherish for the rest of our life. Where else could you find a chauffeur, a exceptional tour guide, and a terrific photographer in one deal. The price of the private custom tour seemed to be steep at first. But the quality experience and the memory we received were worth every penny.
