What to expect

Tour the capital city of Jordan to discover the ancient Desert Castles! Once picked up from your hotel, you will begin you tour to the Eastern Desert. The renowned castles were built between the 7th century and 8th century, under the caliphs of the Umayyad dynasty. The majority of the castles lie on the ancient trade routes towards Medina and Kufa. They may have been a fortress, a meeting place for Bedouins, badiyas (retreats for the nobles) or used as a caravanserai.

You will see Al Kharraneh Castle, Amra Castle (a UNESCO World Heritage site), and Al Azraq Castle where Lawrence of Arabia resided and wrote part of his book “Seven Pillars of Wisdom”. After the trip, you'll return to Amman, hopefully, with a new appreciation for the capital of Jordan.
