Better than expected, as we saw a whole city of numerous ruins and buildings. The tour guide Zahir was very informative. The level of history here is immense

This site was probably best-preserved Roman cities I've ever visited! Simply beautiful.

Awesome tour in Jordan. A short 45-60 minute drive to get there from Amman. Great driver (Basel) that was able to educate us on the history of Jordan, politics, religion, and any thing else you wanted to know about Jordan and the surrounding countries. Our tour guide was great at Jerash as well (provided by the booking on Viator). A dream come true all around for a family vacation. ( Note - Try to get Jordanian Dinar prior to getting to the airport. The airport gives a horrible exchange rate to buy your Visas to get into the country)! (April 2014)

If you are in Amman, make the time see of the best preserved roman cities. A guided (govt guides) visit takes 2 hrs, and its time well spent!

Wonderful day trip from Petra. Our driver arrived promptly at the hotel and drove us to Jerash (beautiful drive). He was very friendly and spoke great English. The guide was very knowledgable and provided great detail.

Visiting Jerash was one of the highlights of our trip. We felt like VIPs with our driver! The ruins are a must-see on any trip to Jordan. Our guide was fantastic and the lunch on the way home was sensational - we tried every local dish imaginable. I would give this tour 6 stars!

Good experience - as easy to do as the original booking. Both our driver and our guide at Jerash were excellent, the latter extending the tour because of our obvious interest. If you have a short stopover, go to Jerash - with the exception of the Colosseum, we reckon it beats Rome!

Perfectly prompt driver, in an excellent quality car. Had a wonderful guide with excellent knowledge of the local area and the sights in Jerah, and beyond that we also discussed more generally the differences between the UK and Jordan, a very intresting and memroable time of my trip to Jordan.

Jerash is a spectacular site with Roman ruins that stagger the imagination. This has to be one of the largest and most complete Roman sites in the world. It is a must-see, even if you have been to some of the other famous sites in Italy, Turkey and Israel.
