Tour Details

From the lobby of your hotel, we will take you on an amazing journey to the ancient Greco-Roman city of Jerash, which once covered an area of ​​at least 800,000 square meters. The city experienced a lot: Roman conquest, unification, prosperity, Persian invasion, and prosperity again.
The earliest Arabs / Semites named their village Garshu. Later, the Romans converted the Arabic name to Gerasa, and the Bible calls this region “the country of the Gadarenes.”
This city died twice – in the eighth century AD from a strong earthquake and in the era of the Crusades from powerful mudflows that covered ancient buildings for ages. An amazing, but not the only case in history – the city went into oblivion to remain for centuries. In the first half of the twentieth century, archaeologists worked hard to uncover the former splendor of the distinguished member of Decapolis.
It should be noted that Jerash is perfectly preserved to this day and while walking along the cobbled streets of this ancient city, you can mentally travel back centuries and imagine the turmoil seething around: trade deals concluded by clever merchants of the Decapolis, retired Roman legionnaires enjoy mild Middle Eastern winters, residents stroll through the lush wedding shops or simply rush for a bucket of water.
From Jerash we smoothly move to Amman – the “city of contrasts”, where the old and the new are closely intertwined. Modern buildings, hotels, restaurants, galleries, and shops in the downtown area coexist with traditional coffee shops and artisan workshops.
On every corner you can find evidence of the city’s ancient past: the ruins of an ancient temple, the Umayyad palace, a Byzantine church, and a Roman amphitheater.
The Greco-Roman civilization left us with a legacy of a magnificent amphitheater in the heart of the old city and the ruins of a Roman temple of Hercules of the 2nd century. From the Christian civilization of the Byzantine era, the Citadel remained, adjacent to the pompous palace of the Governor, built at the beginning of the Ommiad era (VIII century AD).
After lunch at a local restaurant, we will return to your hotel of residence.

On day 3, we will travel to Bethlehem and visit the ancient Church of the Nativity, where we can really touch the very place where Jesus was born. Built by St. Helena in the 4th century, it has been an active church and has never been destroyed ever since! Here, St. Hieronymus wrote the first Latin translation of the Bible – the “Volgata.” We will also visit the “Milk Grotto” and the “Shepherds Fields”. Please note that the tour to Bethlehem can be cancelled without prior notice due to security circumstances.

Returning to Jerusalem we will pass by the picturesque village, Ein Karem, the place where John the Baptist was born. We will visit the “St. John in the Mountains” Church, built on the place where the house of St. John was once standing. We will also visit the Church of Visitation, where St. Mary visited Elisabeth out in the vineyard, and prophesized her birth of St. John. You will spend the night in Jerusalem.

What to expect

  • It is essential that you read our booking conditions we sent to you by email and can be checked online. The booking conditions are an important part of the contract for your holiday. They set rules, guidelines and conditions in which we work with you and determine payment and cancellation policy. When you book with us we assume the booking conditions are read, understood and agreed.

  • Travel insurance is highly recommended for all travelers. At a minimum your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation as all deposits paid are non-refundable, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Go Aqaba Travel does not offer travel insurances.

  • At the airport our representative waits for you with a Go Aqaba Travel sign after you passed through the customs. At the Arava Border in the south we will meet you inside the Jordan border terminal, at Allenby Bridge and Sheikh Hussein Border outside the Jordan border terminal.

  • Most nationals obtain the Jordanian Visa at Amman Airport and the land borders upon arrival. Except for arrivals through the Allenby Bridge/King Hussein Bridge where all nationals need the visa in advance. The visa fee upon arrival is 20 Jordanian Dinar per person and has to be paid in cash; an exchange booth is available. Your passport has to be valid minimum 6 month while traveling in Jordan. If you are not sure about your visa status contact us or the Jordanian embassy in your country of residence.

  • The official currency is the Jordanian Dinar (JD), which is divided into 100 piastres or 1,000 fils. Notes are in denominations of JD 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1. It is easy to change foreign currency at banks, moneychanger or better hotels, most accepted are USD, GBP and Euros. Banks are closed on Fridays and Saturdays. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are the most widely accepted credit cards. ATMs are available in larger towns and at the airport. The maximum daily withdrawal amount is around JD 500, depending on your particular card. Check with your bank for information on ATM international fees. We recommend that you carry some cash in case ATMs can not be accessed, are broken down or run out of cash.

  • It is necessary to mention that Jordan is not a cheap destination. But as every traveller is different, please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, food and shopping. The costs for lunch and dinner vary. If you are happy with a sandwich or a shawarma at local restaurant or take away, this is already available for 3-4 USD per person (without drinks), but better restaurants charge 16-20 USD per meal/per person (no drinks), same at 4 star hotels for main buffet 20-30 USD per meal/per person. A large bottle of water in the local market is 70 Cent, a soft drink (0.30l) is 40 Cent, in tourist areas the rates are higher.

  • Jordan is characterized by a Mediterranean climate and the best travel time is spring and autumn, March until May, September until November. Summer is hot and sunny, especially in Aqaba and at the Dead Sea. These two areas are in turn ideal for a winter break due to the mild temperatures (16-22 °C) in this season. In the rest of the country winter weather can be cool, with rain and occasional snow. Jordan is a very sunny country with average daily sunshine hours ranging from six to seven in winter and twelve to thirteen in summer. Although summer temperatures are high, the nights are rather cool.
