    This tour to Jarash proved to be marvelous. Bassam Jebreen came on time to pick me up in my hotel and off we went to Jarash. The trip from Amman to Jarash took about 45 minutes but it is worth the travel especially once you arrived the ancient Roman ruins of Jarash. I would highly recommend people to take this trip for its historical value.

    The driver was on time. He gave me some historical information as we drove to and from Jerash. The tour guide was fantastic and definitely worth the extra money.

    Well worth the trip up to Jerash - it and #39;s an easy half day and the ruins are stunning.

  • 05-Dec-2016

    This is a total rip off, you can get a taxi or private car to wait for you for less than half of the price and a get a tour guide in Jerash for less than 20.
