What people are saying about Jerash

I was lucky to spend the day touring the sites of northern Jordan with Mohammed, the best driver in all of Jordan. He was punctual, friendly, interesting, a great conversationalist, and went above and beyond to help me fix a small problem with arranging a pre-flight COVID test back at my hotel later that day. Don’t hesitate to book your transport to Jerash, Ajloun, and Umm Qais with this company - if all their drivers are as great as Mohammed, you’ll be in excellent hands.

Mahmoud Issa was an exceptional driver. He had not only water waiting for me, but also juice and snacks. We had such an lovely dialogue and he was very thoughtful throughout the day. I chose to stay a bit longer in one location and forgo another for a separate date and was very pleased to accommodate my requests. I would highly recommend him for any tour. :)

Booking a guided tour like this one is a very good option especially if you do not so many days or time left. This tour helped us visit three different places in one day while it would probably need a bit more than a day if we were about to visit the places on our own.

Very good tour for knowing more about Jordan. Nice, polite, atentif driver, clean car. Recomended

hasan was an amazing driver / tour guide and the sites were breathtaking
