What to expect

Begin your private tour with a pick up from your central Amman hotel, and travel by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. A local English-speaking guide will be included for your classic 2 hours visit of this Roman Decapolis City of Jerash. See its arches, theaters, and elegant colonnaded street. Snap photos of the stunning Oval Plaza, the intriguing egg-shaped public square framed by standing columns.

Having explored here, continue to the 12th-century Castle of Ajloun, built in the time of Saladin to defend against Crusader armies. Head inside this semi-intact hilltop fortress, and roam the rambling corridors and staircases. Admire the stunning views over the lush hills of the Jordan Valley from the towers.

After this long walk, return to the capital of Amman, for a panoramic tour of the city’s highlights. Drive around the downtown area past animated markets, churches, and mosques like King Abdullah’s mosque. Pass King Hussein’s Palace and discover the Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic-era ruins of Amman Citadel for a viewpoint. Gaze in awe at the Roman Amphitheater and get free time in Amman downtown area for souvenir shopping in the local gold and spice markets.

Your tour then concludes by strolling along Jabal Al Webdeih and Jabal Amman Quarters, the Rainbow Street, Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hot spot. Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of “Abdoun” and “Swefieh”, where luxury shopping malls and swanky private villas line the streets. Then you will back to your hotel.
