Full description
Start your tour with pickup from your central Amman hotel, then travel to Jerash in a private air-conditioned vehicle. With your experienced guide, wander among the ancient temples, theaters, plazas, paths and streets enclosed within the remaining city walls. Discover the remains of settlements dating back to the Bronze Age, Iron Age, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad, and Abbasid periods. Learn about the history of the land and the people who inhabited it for more than 2,500 years as you explore the Roman Decapolis City that has been left behind. This ancient city was once one of the most prosperous in the Roman Empire, and was covered by sand for centuries until its remains were discovered in 1806. Journey through the ancient city gate and walk around the well-preserved ruins as your guide tells you the marvellous tales of the city. Snap a photo of the wonders of the ruins, including the stunning Oval Plaza, and the intriguing egg-shaped public square framed by standing columns, before heading back to your hotel in Amman.

First time in Jordan so wanted to use a guide to start exploring. Hassan was on time and extremely pleasant and informative during the tour. Highly recommended.

We were picked up at the hotel and drove to Jerash. The 2 hour tour was very exciting and informative. Our driver stopped at an olive shop especially for us. He also took us to a very good restaurant for lunch.
