Tours & Transportation

Tempe is located less than 10 minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport and boasts the best freeway access in Arizona. Visitors can easily rent a car, take the Valley Metro Rail or utilize the Tempe public bus system. Valley Metro Rail provides a convenient link between Tempe, Downtown Phoenix and Downtown Mesa and offers an extension that connects directly to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Tempe’s central location makes touring attractions around the state of Arizona as easy as pie. Tour operators, who are Arizona experts, can use Tempe as a home base while taking visitors on interesting and fun excursions throughout the state. Many of the tour companies will pick up guests from their Tempe hotel and then embark on adventures to places like the Grand Canyon, Sedona and the Apache Trail, or you can take a leisurely city tour showing the highlights of the Phoenix area.
