Must see! Highly recommended. However tourism board's guide at the site was only interested in tips and started discussing tips right from the start of the tour.

It was an Amazing, But I did not like the Tour Guide telling me he depends on tips to survive and demanding a tip from me. Very unprofessional and a complete turn off.

The Private Half Day Jerash and Amman City Sightseeing Tour provides a dramatic insight into the extraordinary growth of two cities. Amman, the capital of Jordan, formerly known as Philadelphia, exploding from a small, sleepy town into a modern metropolis with 2.4 million people, almost half of the Kingdom’s population; and Jerash, a city of 30,000 at its zenith and one of the most important centres in the former Roman Empire.

The driver picked us up on time and spoke good English. We loved Jerash and had a good guide, loved the chariot race and Roman legion show. I felt that everytime we passed something interesting in Amman our driver was on his cell phone. I guess they have 2 jobs.

The Amman City part of this tour was not too great but Jerash made up for that. One of the better things to see in Jordan.

You get the loveliest travel guide if you manage to get Shaadi, in saying that Jerash is lovely, you will get a guide who expects a tip (as do most people in Jordan) but Amman, not much to see and glad we left it to the last day as we were a tad exhausted by that stage. Shaadi was accoomodating of our request to see the experience the real food of Jordan, went to a lovely restaurant serving local food and eating with the locals.

This was a nice tour of the ancient site of Jarash.. the city tour was good as well.

We travelled throughout the Middle East and thought these were among the best preserved Roman ruins we saw. The gladiator show is billed as the only one actually held in a real hippodrome--extra charge. DO note that the driver is NOT your guide, and if you want a guide you will need to be prepared to pay a fee. Our driver selected an excellent guide for us. Not much to see in Amman City, however, so you might want to do that on your own.

I saw a lot and it was a good tour.

I payed for the driver in this package. This tour was very expensive because I was by myself.

I did not like the driver telling me he depends on tips to survive and demanding a tip from me. Very unprofessional and a complete turn off.

Tour driver was more than a half hour late picking me up, and when I called the local tour operator number it was out of service, I had to call Viator for help. When I asked the driver how long it would take to drive to Jerash he told me a landslide had blocked the main road and it would take 2-1/2 hours each way, well more than the time I had just to drive to and from. I wondered if, had I not inquired, he would have just started driving me there anyway! He took me on a tour of Amman and some locations south of Amman toward the airport, from which he had picked me up on a private arrangement. The driver was not knowledgeable of the places he took me and I mainly figured out what I was seeing myself. Driver spent a lot of time on what appeared to be personal cell phone calls. While taking me back to the airport the driver pressured me to write, sign and give to him an evaluation while I was still dependent on him getting mew back to the airport in time for my connecting flight, so if he shows that as proof what a great job he did, it was coerced. I made the best of a bad situation. I still have confidence in Viator but would not recommend this driver or this local provider.
