Departure Time

9:00 AM
After morning pickup from your Dead Sea hotel, travel northward by private, air-conditioned vehicle to the classical site of Jerash. On route, gaze at Jordan’s towns, villages, and arid landscapes. Your driver will point out places of interest, but will not act as your guide at Jerash or Ajlun.

On arrival at Jerash, meet your local guide and tour the highlights of the site, one of the best-preserved ancient cities of the Roman Decapolis league. Enter via the main gate, and explore the ruins within the ancient city boundaries.

Learn how the city was founded by Alexander the Great in the 2nd century, and admire the column-ringed Oval Plaza (Forum), together with colonnades, arches, theaters, squares, and temples — many in exceptional condition. As you wander, learn about long-ago life here under Roman rule and listen as your guide sheds light on the city’s history and imperial significance.

Next, drive to Ajlun, the remains of a Muslim castle built in 1184 by Saladin to defend against Crusader attacks and protect local iron mines. Opt to explore independently or with a local guide (additional cost), checking out the chambers, galleries, and other areas, and climbing one of the towers to absorb the bird's-eye views over the Jordan Valley to the Dead Sea.

Then, continue to Amman for a panoramic tour of Jordan’s capital, where high-rises mix with classical antiquities, traditional souks, and leafy residential areas.

Admire the panoramic views from the hilltop Citadel and pass landmarks like the blue-domed King Abdullah Mosque and Coptic Church. See the historical Jabal Al-Webdeih district with its art galleries, dip into buzzing Rainbow Street, and shop for souvenirs at Amman’s stylish shopping centers, such as the Taj Mall in Abdoun or Galeria Mall in Swefieh.

Your tour then ends with a drop-off at your Dead Sea hotel.
