  • Jerash Ruins - Following pickup, your first stop will be at Jerash, located about an hour north from the city center of Amman and considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside of Italy. Jerash, conquered by General Pompey in 63 BC, fell under Roman rule and was one of the 10 greatest Roman cities.

Once in Jerash, your driver will assist you to prepare your entry and book a private local guide (optional, at own expense). You will have the opportunity to explore the colonnaded streets, baths, theaters, plazas, and arches of Jerash. There will be a lot of walking, but it will be well worth the stroll, so make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes on the day of the tour.

  • Ajlun Castle (Qala’at ar-Rabad) - Next, you will be driven to Ajloun Castle, which was built in 1184 AD by one of Saladin’s generals. The castle became important in the defense against the Crusaders. The castle is one of the best-preserved examples of Medieval Arab-Islamic military architecture. The Castle tour is a walking tour on your own. After Ajloun Castle, you will meet your driver at the entrance. Your tour will conclude with a drop-off at your hotel or accommodation.

Outstanding Service - Yuones was on time, the car was well appointed, with WiFi and waters at the ready. He made the day enjoyable and was very conversational. He also made a quick side stop on the way back and was very accommodating. We enjoyed getting to know him and would definitely recommend!

Excellent day tour - Jerash is a unique place to see, with its impressive columns. Ajloun Castle is beautiful and has an incredible view. My tour guide, Shadi, has been attentive and professional at all times. I have changed my itinerary and instead of going to Umm Qais I have opted for the Dead Sea. Shadi has been very kind in managing my last minute change of plan. I appreciate the excellent service.

Jerash and Ajloun delight - We had a fantastic day with our driver Yuones. We spent one hour at the Ajloun castle and three hours at Jerash. The Jerash site is spectacular and deserves three hours to explore. Yuones was on time and very helpful during the trip. Great day in Jordan. Thank you

Jerash and Ajloun castle - Our driver contacted me the night before to advise me about pickup time, then again the morning of our trip. He was very punctual, and offered us water and the WiFi password. We went to the castle which was very interesting, with fabulous views, then he took us to Jerash, offering a stop for lunch but we didn’t need it. Jerash was amazing and took us around a couple of hours to cover. On the way back he pointed out some interesting landmarks before dropping us back to the hotel. All in all a very good experience.

Jerash and Ajloun Castle - Our driver Adnan Hamdan provided us with excellent service. He was on time picking us up. He gave us information on Jordan as he drove. When we finished touring each site he was waiting for us. If you are coming to Jordan you don't want to miss Jerash and Ajloun Castle. The northern part of Jordan is very different from southern Jordan. The tour operator was R & H VIP Transportation Services.
