About this activity
Your first stop will be Jerash, located about an hour north from the city center of Amman and is considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside of Italy. Jerash conquered by General Pompey in 63 BC, became under Roman rule and was one of the 10 greatest Roman cities, The Decapolis League. Your driver will assist to prepare your entrance and private local guide (optional) who will be with you to share the rich historical city of Jerash. Your tour will capture its colonnaded streets, baths, theaters, plazas and arches most in great condition. There is a lot of walking but well worth the stroll, be sure to have your comfortable shoes on that day.
After your tour in Jerash, you will meet your local guide (optional) to take you to Ajloun Castle which was built in 1184AD by one of Saladin’s generals. The castle became important in the defense against the Crusaders. The castle is one of the best preserved examples of Medieval Arab-Islamic military architecture. The Castle tour is a walking tour on your own. After Ajloun Castle, you will meet your driver at the entrance and finish your tour further north to Um Qais situated on the hilltop with panoramic views of Tiberius Lake, The Golan Heights and The Jordan Valley. Um Qais is your last stop north before departing back to the city center of Amman. After your walking tour, your driver will meet you at your vehicle with a ride back to your hotel or other drop off point.

This private tour booked via Viator was a little bit of an Unknown which proved to be a very successful, full and interesting Day out thanks to the driving abilities and support of Ahmed our driver. We started out trip travelling to the furthest destination and worked our way back. Umm Qais, Ajoun Castle and then Jerash. All sites were very interesting and will be reviewed separately on Tripadvisor. This trip was only as good as its driver and could have gone one of two ways. Fortunately, Ahmed was polite, courteous, informative and good company to be with. Nothing was to much trouble which made the day a wonderful one!...Great to be picked up and dropped off at our Hotel too!....Would recommend!

What a great day! It is a lot within 1 day but very doable and worthwhile as you the places you visit are amazing. Jerash is a must see when in Jordan and the ruins of Umm Qais are very unique. The Ajloun castle was great too, as was the countryside and farm areas we drover through. A return trip would be great to do when the wildflowers are out in April/ May. We were there in October so there were not very many people but it was quite dry. Our driver, Ahmad, was very knowledgeable and great to spend a day with. He bought us some great local food and made sure we were stocked up on Turkish coffee - yum! We were picked up from our hotel at 7:00 and arrived back around 6:00. I highly recommend this trip
