Although the heading states tour, it is not a tour in the sense that you have a tour guide. The driver, Mahmoud, was excellent, very polite and friendly. I would highly recommend the store as the archaeological sites are extremely interesting and worth seeing, especially Jerash. If you have a Jordan, post in all entrance, for these sites is included. Good shopping in Jerash, too.

it was beautiful, and Younis the driver was super friendly, I just would have loved if I was informed that the tour was not guided by a professional guide, and that I needed to pay extra for that service. rather than that, it was very comfy, I took my time to explore the archaeological sites and there was nothing to complain about.

Our driver, Mustafa Omar was great. He knew the back roads and saved us time. He stopped and showed us sights along the way. He was always punctual at pick up times. Even had the car washed while we were in a sight. If you don't have a Jordan Pass check it out before you come. It's a no brainer, saving on Jordan visa and these three sights. We're already ahead and Petra tomorrow @ $ 70 savings!
