Celebrating 35 years of excellence, Southwest Custom Tours began as a one-man operation with Jim Vaughan, owner and founder of Southwest Tours on January 17, 1983 . Since then we have become the premier van tour company in Arizona!
Having toured thousands of visitors to Arizona over the years, we are the trusted choice for vacationers, travel agents, destination managers and the hospitality industry when booking their guests and clients. Our fleet has no more than six (6) fifteen -passenger vans, custom seated with captain chairs for up to twelve passengers. We conduct regularly scheduled van tours every day of the year, including all holidays.
But there are plenty more reasons to to tour with us-
KNOWLEDGE – On your fully-guide tour you will learn facts, history and lots of information. Your guide is always happy to answer your questions about your destination and Arizona in general. Plus your guide will know where to find the best views and avoid the crowds.
CONVENIENCE – We pick up from select centrally located hotels and resorts in Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona and return you to the same location at the end of the tour. We do the driving and parking so you get to spend more time seeing and experiencing your destination.
SMALL GROUPS – Touring in small groups of no more than 12 people give you a high quality, friendly, and relaxing tour with a personal tour feel. Traveling on a big bus tour can get confusing and impersonal but small groups give you time to talk with your tour guide and ask questions as well as make new friends with your other traveling companions for that day. Small groups are a good value with personalized service at a reasonable price.
FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED – We love our great State of Arizona and enjoy sharing it with you, our guest. You can be sure you will get very professional, friendly, and personal service from the moment you contact us and even after your tour experience is over. Your comfort and the quality of your tour is important to us. We have a vested interest in making your guided tour fantastic because we own the business!
CUSTOMIZATION – If you don’t want to tour with a group you can also arrange a private tour where you decide where we go, when we go, and how long we stay. Individual, family or group tours of any size, from the comfort of a Chrysler Town & Country mini van to large buses and everything in between we have the ability to accommodate your every touring need.
VALUE –Our tours are affordably priced compared to our competitors. Other private tour companies charge from $179 to$195 and up for comparable tours. Plus we’re often even cheaper than the big bus tours if you’re with a group. You’ll get much more out of the money you spent to visit Arizona with Southwest Custom Tours.
