Know More about this tour

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 entrance 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.

Next, you will be driven to Ajloun Castle, which was built in 1184 AD by one of Saladins 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 drop-off at your hotel or accommodation.

    Magnifique excursion, Jerash un lieu incontournable à faire absolument en Jordanie. Notre chauffeur Mohammed au top

    This “tour” is really just a private driver from Amman to Jerash and the Aljoun Castle. Both are cool sights but the price for two people is more than what you’d pay for a taxi to take you to these sites.

    We had a last minute adjustment to our itinerary and booked this rather last minute. Jerash is incredible and a must see! We were treated to an excellent English-speaking driver, Mohammad Bardaghawi, who loves Jordan and knows his way around. He listened to our interests and suggested a few other stops on the route for a real taste of Jordan, including some fresh (and delicious) pomegranate juice and a stop to see the olive oil processing which was definitely interesting to see. We ended up trusting him to take us all the way to Petra the day before leaving the country because we had confidence he would get us to our flight in time.

    Jerash and Ajloun made a fantastic day trip from Amman. Our driver was waiting at our hotel early and was very friendly. Had a great time at both Jerash and Ajloun, and the restaurant we were taken for lunch was great.
