Jerash guided tour Jerash guided tour

Explore the ancient city of Jerash. A truly incredible site, extremely well preserved and with remains from Neolithic times, as well as Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Umayyad and others. Its history also tells the tale of a remarkably long chain of human occupation.

As one of the best preserved cities of the Roman Empire, visited by Emperor Hadrian 129 AD, it’s possible to walk within the tracks of chariot wheels that are still visible in the paving stones. During your tour today you will be able to walk beneath the imposing south gate and then make your way up the 'Street of Columns' – the Roman road running 600 metres north from the Oval Plaza. And, as you visit the theatres you can imagine the throngs of crowds enjoying dramas unfolding before them.

Dana Hike Dana Hike

Lace up your hiking boots today as you head into the Dana biosphere, the largest national park in Jordan. Here you can explore a huge array of landscapes and biodiversity along with your expert local guide who will lead you along the Nawatef Trail. The trail is circular and takes approximately two hours to hike, from the Al-Barrah area, to the scenic mountains and to the springs and ancient ruins of the Nawatef area.
During the hike there will be some dramatic viewpoints - not suitable for those with a fear of heights. We also recommend a reasonable level of fitness to fully enjoy the hike.

As well as being a treat for history and archeology lovers, Petra is an outstanding destination for those who love to hike through wild desert scenery and seemingly stumble upon world class ruins. If this resonates with you, we recommend starting at Little Petra, a separate archeological site which has also been awarded UNESCO world heritage status and is well worth visiting, particularly for its beautifully decorated ‘dining room cave’ with wall and ceiling paintings depicting wine and vines. You then trek the three to four hours through the wilderness of the sandstone mountains, dramatic scenery around you at every turn, until eventually you approach Petra at the monastery. Your private guide will escort you through the site in the opposite order to how most people do this - arriving at the monastery you will end at the Treasury and then the Siq. Along the way your guide will reveal and explains the highlights of the Nabatean city, including the stunning Treasury, the theatre, the tombs and facades and the colonnaded street. Full historical background will be provided, together with information about the Nabatean civilisation.
