Way better than a rental car

Hit the trails in Tucson

Though Tucson is the second largest city in Arizona, it’s known for its off-beat culture and chill university town vibe. Set between the wild, open desert of Saguaro National Park, this relaxed town is the ideal place to escape fast-paced city life. Enjoy hiking and horseback riding, then come back to the city for delicious cuisine and dynamic nightlife.

But the ultimate attraction is the breathtaking landscape. So grab your keys and get ready for incredible, picture-perfect views.

Tucson favorites

Stir up some dust as you explore Tucson’s culture, cacti, and celebrated film history.

purple lines

Saguaro National Park

To the east and west of Tucson, this National Park is home to America’s largest cacti: the giant saguaro. In the park’s western area, you can hike past rare desert shrubs in search of petroglyphs. In the eastern part, cruise Cactus Forest Drive for striking desert views.

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum

The 98-acre Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum has just about everything: a natural history museum, zoo, aquarium, botanical garden, and art gallery, plus 21 acres of walking trails. Located just west of Tucson, it’s a tourist favorite.

Old Tucson

Travel back in time to John Wayne’s Wild West with a visit to Old Tucson Studios: the filming location for hundreds of films and TV shows, from Rio Brava to Little House on the Prairie. Don’t miss the old-timey saloon!

Skip the car rental counter

Hit the road

From underground caverns and mining tours to summit-top observatories, the area around Tucson is sure to take you to new heights. Walk the streets of picturesque Bisbee and explore its eclectic attractions. When the heat catches up with you, escape to the coolness of Kartchner Caverns or Mount Lemmon, where the summit temperature drops 30 degrees.

Bisbee

Breeze 95 miles down the highway to this well-preserved mining town, where you can still tour the mine and sift through quirky shops for vintage gold. Bisbee is also home to a number of art galleries, restaurants, and walking paths.

Kartchner Caverns State Park

Drive 50 miles south of Tucson to experience these marvelous limestone caverns, home to the world’s longest soda straw stalactite and a roost for baby bats. The park also has cabins and camping sites.

Mount Lemmon

At 9,000 feet above sea level, the highest peak in the Santa Catalina Mountains offers cooler temperatures in summer and exhilarating ski slopes in winter. Drive the sky island scenic byway and sample some homemade fudge on your way to the top, then view the stars from the observatory on the peak.

This was a great vehicle to get around Tucson, where sitting high is necessary with all the big trucks around. The Rogue is easy to drive handles well. This particular vehicle also has great AC and has been very well maintained. It has a couple quirks which are fully disclosed by the host, and didn’t impact my use in anyway. Plus it was a great deal. Finally, Berry was very accommodating and understanding when I had to make a change to the reservation, even though it inconvenience him. I’ll be looking for Bert’s Rogue when I come to Tucson again.

Over the top positive experience! Jorge met me right on time (I was actually early) at arrivals. Clean, new and terrific Hyundai vehicle. Drop off went as smoothly as the pick up. Talk about convenient! Jorge/Turo has my future business for sure. No more conventional car rental companies for me. Thanks Jorge!

Ken was very good about conversing and keeping me in the loop with everything. He had cold bottled water in the car for us and the car was very clean inside and out. Highly recommend renting his car. I will only use Turo from now on. I will never rent a car through the rental companies again.

Calvin was great! he dropped off the vehicle at the airport at midnight which made it very convenient for me to get to we’re I was staying. the vehicle was immaculate and ran great. I will definitely use Calvin’s rental again and I highly recommend using Calvin vehicle if you going to Tucson.

Enterprise screwed me over and didn't tell me until one hour before I was to pick up the vehicle, that Ford had a recall and they didn't have any Expeditions. Their comparable vehicle was a minivan. None of the big names had any large SUV's so I turned to Turo. Luckily, there was a Suburban available close by. Kristina was very responsive and I was able to pick up the vehicle that day. She saved our trip! The Suburban was clean and well kept and now my wife wants one! I highly recommend Turo and Kristina.

This rental was a great experience. I really appreciated the “extras” like sunscreen, cold water, cash to cover the parking fee and the option for an airport drop off. Much more personal than the other National rental brand than I usually use. I will look for this vehicle/owner for future trips 👍

The entire rental process was excellent and Nyame was a perfect host! Our plans changed by a few hours for both pickup and drop-off and Nyame was easy to contact and graciously able to accommodate our changes. He even was available to drop us off at the airport, but we ended up not needing his kind assistance. The car was spotless and ran flawlessly. Would definitely contact Nyame again if we needed a car in the Tucson area!

Jorge delivered exceptional service. First he was flexible about my arrival date. Then he was very accommodating when I asked to change my pickup location. The car itself was in very good condition— very clean and with a full tank of gas. I would definitely use Jorge’s Rogue when I’m next again in Tucson.

All went well. This make is a great car, lots of space in the trunk, it fit my bike. I averaged around 25-6 mpg. There was a minor issue, the right mirror was detached but Bert had fixed it with tape and wood and it held. The beach cahir Bahama are very comofrtable but are a pain to fold :)

Best Tucson driving roads

Purple squiggle

Catalina Highway

Known by a number of names, this scenic byway ends near the summit of Mount Lemmon. Featuring three epic switchbacks, a bold 2,000-foot climb in 24 miles, and seemingly endless vistas, the Catalina Highway is a thrilling drive through Tucson’s desert landscape.

Route 191 to Alpine

Part of the famous Coronado Trail, anyone who loves to drive won’t be able to resist the endless curves on The Devil’s Highway. From desert floor to mountain peak, this drive also takes you past Hannagan Meadow, an ideal location for stargazing, on your way to a Swiss village founded in 1870.

Salt River Canyon

For a view like no other, take US-60 from Apache Junction to Show Low. You’ll encounter stacks of twists as you ribbon uphill and then dive down into the Salt River Canyon, also known as “the mini Grand Canyon.”
