Know More about this tour

Begin your private tour with a pick up from your central Amman hotel, and travel by comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to Jerash. Wander among the original temples, theaters, plazas, paths, and colonnaded streets; all enclosed within the remaining city walls. Within the city walls have been found the remains of settlements dating from the Bronze Age, the Iron Age, the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad and Abbasid periods, indicating human occupation at this location for more than 2,500 years. A local English-Speaking Guide will be included for your classic 2 hours visit of this Roman Decapolis City of Jerash. This ancient city was one of the most prosperous in the Roman Empire, and was covered by sand for centuries until its remnants were discovered in 1806. Head through the ancient city gate and walk around the well-preserved ruins as your guide tells you tales about the city in its heyday. 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. See the murder holes through which occupiers could pour hot oil or pitch on invaders, and 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 citys highlights. Drive around the downtown area past animated markets, churches, and mosques like King Abdullahs mosque. Pass King Husseins Palace, where the late, revered king is laid to rest. Discover the Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic-era ruins of Amman citadel for a view point. Gaze in awe at the Roman Amphitheater, carved into a hillside in the 2nd century B.C. and the most important remnant of Ammans predecessor, the Roman white city of Philadelphia. Free time at leisure 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, Ammans 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. After passing thru the modern Amman drive back to your hotel.
