    Wow! What an amazing site. It’s so well preserved and huge much bigger than we thought it would be. We spent about 2hrs in total here. Our driver set us up with a guide at the site. He explained all the history and it was nice to get to know what all the sites were would def recommend getting a guide to help you know what you’re looking at. We then had some time to explore ourselves before headed back to the shops. We heard the shops were very pushy but didn’t feel that way, everyone was nice and respectful of you said no (La in Arabic) and kept walking. There were some neat items but you can get better prices back in Amman touristic shops.

    I highly recommend this great trip to Jerash. Basel, my driver, was very friendly, courteous and interesting to speak to en route to Jerash. My guide at Jerash was enthusiastic and excellent. Zaid Tours is a very well run operation, answering my questions promptly. Jerash is a very beautiful site and should not be missed.

    I normally don’t write reviews, but I felt compelled to let everyone know about my outstanding driver Hasan. He made my short stay in Jordan an a very pleasant experience. Very professional, clean car, excellent English and very nice conversation. If you are booking a tour or transfer with Ziad Tours, I would highly recommend you ask for Hasan!! You will not be disappointed! Thanks Hasan! See you next time!
