Interesting history

Good driver and guide in Jerash was excellent. We loved Jerash. So much interesting history. Other 2 sites also worth while, 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.
John Hudson

Incredible experience

An authentic experience at its best! Our tour guide picked up punctually from our hotel. Having studied Middle-Eastern history, he gave us lots of useful information along our way on the three main sites visited. The visits were exceptional and all three sites are a must if one is to visit Jordan. We also stopped to eat in an amazing restaurant in Jerash every thing was an amazing, day exploring the ruins from the Roman and Umayyad times in northern Jordan - thank you for such an incredible experience we ha d with map travel tour & tourism with the great staff.

Jerash is amazing - truly spectacular. Ajilun castle has a truly impressive location. Umm Qais is a hidden surprise which allows views into Syria, Lebanon, the Golan Heights and Israel.
Issa Tim and family

I highly recommend this tour

this a great experience. The driver was waiting for me on time, gave me some history of where I was going, and took me straight to the castle and Jerash. I did both as a self guided tour as the signs made it easy to follow. Afterwards we went to a local restaurant and had a great lunch before returning to Amman. I highly recommend this tour.
Rabee and family Haderson

A phenomenal experience Amman & Jerash

A phenomenal experience I would recommend to anyone looking for a delicious and immersive Amman adventure and Jerash. We started at the citadel and were given an insightful overview of the dynamic social and political forces that have shaped modern Amman and Jordan. We sampled some local sweets, including sugar cane juice, as we wandered about the lively, bustling downtown area. Decadent hummus and falafel at a renowned Amman eatery was followed by a trip to Kanafeh stand bursting with locals. We finished the day with a trip to Rainbow street where we imbibed a refreshing lemon mint drink and shawarma. Our guide was fantastic, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful we highly recommended, If you come to Amman, do this tour!

We had an amazing experience

We had an amazing experience on vistting Jerash “Gerasa” iwhich is the most complete and best preserved Graeco-Roman city in the middle east then back to Amman. This tour was the perfect way to see the highlights of Amman and try some amazing local food all in one day. Perfect for your first day in Amman. Our first stop was the Citadel setting us up with an excellent guide for a tour. After the Citadel, we visited the Roman Theatre and the King Abdullah Mosque. After a few hours of sightseeing, we then embarked on the food tour portion of the trip. We ate amazing food from falafel to shawarma to sugar cane juice and left the tour extremely full and satisfied. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to see the highlights of Amman with a great guide in 1 day!
