Full description
Begin your private tour with a pick up from your hotel in central Amman. You'll travel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to Jerash. Wander among the temples, theatres, plazas, paths and collonaded streets, all enclosed within the remaining city walls. Inside 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 accompany you during your 2-hour visit to the Jerash. This ancient city was one of the most prosperous in the Roman Empire and was covered by sand for centuries until it's 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 it's arches, theatres, and elegant collonaded streets. Take the opportunity to take some photos of the stunning Oval Plaza, the intriguing egg-shaped public square framed by standing columns. Having explored Jerash, 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 corridors and staircases. Admire the stunning views over the lush hills of the Jordan Valley from the towers. Then, reconvene with your vehicle and relax on your ride back to Amman where your trip ends with a hotel drop off.

Walking through Jerash was wonderful as was the local guide who had an extensive knowledge of history and architecture. Ajloun provided great views. Really liked my driver, fun to speak with and get a feel for life in the city.
