About
Depart Amman North to Ajlun Castle, a Saracen fortress which is a mere 16 km from Jerash. The castle is located on the top of a mountain just outside the small city of Ajlun. It is an interesting maze of passages and levels, and offers a wonderful view of the surrounding area, northwestern Jordan, and off into Galilee. Continue to the ruins of Jerash, one of the Middle East's best examples of a Greco-Roman provincial city.  At the entrance of the site, admire Hadrian's Arch, built in 129 AD to mark Emperor Hadrian's visit, and the Hippodrome, a partially restored Roman-era stadium. Once inside, accompanied by a private, local guide, wander the colonnaded streets and discover its most important monuments: Temples, Theaters, Baths, Oval Plaza, Nymphaeum, along with several Byzantine churches dating from the Christian era.  Return to Amman.

Great Full Day Tour
Apr 2019 • Couples
We did a full day private tour starting with the Amman Citadel, continuing on to Ajlun Castle, and finishing up in Jerash. I went back and forth on emails with this company to get the ideal itinerary for us. Without any issues, our driver met us on time at our hotel for pickup. We had a lovely day touring everything. I really wanted to do some shopping to take back souvenirs for home, and our driver graciously took me to one of his favorite places, and I shopped for about 45 minutes. That was so kind of him to add that time on to our trip. He was so sweet and kind to us all day long.
This was a great day trip, and I recommend using this company for such a thing if you are interested.

Amazing experience and really great driver/guide
Jun 2019 • Couples
We had an amazing experience with this tour! We went on a full day trip to Jerash, Ajlun and mount Nebo with a transfer to Madaba at the end of the day (unfortunately, Umm Qais was way too far for us). Everything was perfect on this trip and the highlight of it was our driver, Malek Saeed. He was so helpful, sympathetic, interesting, comprehensive.. it would not have been the same experience without him. This guy loves his country for sure and wants to share this love with you. Many thanks to him!

Fascinating seven days touring Jordan
Mar 2019 • Couples
We arranged our own flights and worked with Jordan Direct Tours to book the hotels, and tours to all the key sights (Amman, Desert Castles, Petra, Jerash, Ajlun, Mt Nebo, Madaba, Kerak) with private car and driver. We also spent a night at the Dead Sea and a night in a camp at Wadi Rum. All hotels were a high standard.

Our driver, Malik, was excellent and pointed out several great food stops for lunch. He was a very good driver, always arrived in good time for pick ups and the car was always clean and well stocked with water, tissues etc.

Everything went to plan and we had a wonderful time and would love to go back in the future to see the things we did not have time for. We would certainly use Jordan Direct again.

Excellent Service
This is an exceptional private tour company offering bespoke individual tours. The drivers are extremely knowledgeable, personable and have a detailed opinion on geopolitics in the region. Most importantly the company is safe and trustworthy in the region, so it is definitely worth participating in one of their tours. Highly reccomend.

Jerash - better than Rome !!
Jun 2018 • Family
We booked a one-day trip from Amman to Ajlun and Jerash with Jordan Direct Tours.
Our driver Al was very friendly, knowledgeable and always punctual - we enjoyed long chats with him. He organised a fantastic two-and-a half hour private tour of Jerash with a guide who brought this incredible ancient site to life: temples, hippodrome, theatre, partly intact colonnade, Jerash has it all ! From there and very last minute, Al organised a trip to the Dead Sea where we floated (you can't swim in the warm, salty water) and had lunch. From Aqaba, Jordan Direct Tours also arranged for us to go to Wadi Rum for an incredible jeep tour with a Bedouin guide and an overnight stay at the Milky Way Camp. On our return to Amman, JD Tours picked us up from the Jett bus station and took us to see the desert "castles" - the Umayyad hunting lodge of Qasr Amra is a hidden gem with its exquisite wall paintings and remarkable hydraulic system for the baths. If this was in Europe, people would be queuing up to see it.
Finally, Yasmin in the office was always an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Amazing 5 Day Trip
Dec 2017 • Family
My family and I recently returned from Jordan where we had a 5 day private tour in Jordan. It started with Ola Farraj who was amazing. We didn't know what exactly we wanted to see other than Petra and she provided some incredible recommendations. We started the trip with one night in Amman then headed for Wadi Rum. After a second night at Wadi Rum we spent the third night in Petra and then went to the Dead Sea on the fourth night. Ola was very helpful and understanding as we changed our minds several times as to the details we wanted and questions we had. Every single time we asked a question she was responsive right away in email and very accommodating. I must have drove her crazy. We were met at the airport before we got to immigration and personally escorted through immigration and to our waiting driver very quickly. I can't say enough about our driver Haythem. He was just as amazing as Ola. As it turned out he had lived a couple of blocks from where my daughter lives studying at the university and an hour from where we are from. We had a lot of great conversation about "home" for us with him knowing the area. We made a friend for life. He was very personable, friendly and a very safe driver. After our first night in Amman we headed for Wadi Rum, We got the upgrade to the "Martian" tent which was a dome tent. Very much worth the $50 upgrade and an incredible once in a lifetime experience. It was an amazing experience and our families favorite location on our entire trip. The jeep tour, food, and hospitality at Sun City can't be beat. Petra and the Dead Sea were both amazing. Every hotel location we stayed at had excellent accommodations, was clean, and great quality with breakfast included. The prices for what we paid were very affordable. On our last day, similar to when we landed, we were brought to the border since we were headed to Israel and personally escorted through customs on the Jordanian side quickly and efficiently with no hassel. I can't say enough about Jordan Direct Tours. Everything from beginning to end can't be beat. My family and I have traveled a lot around the world and this company can really teach others how to run a tour. Incredible customer service, friendly, and has all the details down to an art form. At not time, did my family and I feel threatened or nervous about being in Jordan. The people are friendly, the areas I mentioned we felt very safe, and without hesitation I would go again and choose only Jordan Direct Tours.

Customized 5 Days Private Tour in Jordan
Dec 2017 • Family
This was a great family tour (5 persons), from airport pickup till the 4AM airport drop off. I'm very fussy about the daily details but Jordan Direct Tours surpassed all my expectations. Look for Esam Baddad. He was our english speaking daily guide who looked after us from hotel pickup until drop off everyday. The restaurants he recommended were great, reasonably priced with excellent food. We watched the sun go down in Wadi Rum, rode the camel in the desert, stayed 2 nights in Petra, walked thru the Siq, Treasury up to the Monastery and sat thru the performance during Petra by Night. Then we did Madaba, Mt Nebo, Ajloun and Jerash and stayed 2 nights at the Dead Sea. Our last tour was at the Amman Citadel, tour of the Souq and stayed 1 night in Amman. All in all I couldn't ask for anything else. I highly recommend this tour company.

Amazing 8-day trip
Nov 2017 • Couples
Just come back from a stunning 8-day tour of Jordan. So much to see and do and at no point did we ever feel unsafe or threatened. Beautiful country and very kind people wherever we visited. 2 nights in Petra minumum is a must, especially if you intend to hike up to the monastery and the high place of sacrifice - bring very good walking shoes and upgrade to 2-day entry for just $5 pp extra. Tour consultant Ola Farraj was very efficient in putting the tour together according to our interests and very quick to respond to questions and our driver Yousef Brish spoke perfect English and was 100% reliable, going well beyond the call of duty to make the tour safe and memorable for us. Option of Petra Kitchen cooking course/dinner was really good. Bring water shoes for entering water at Aqaba and Dead Sea, it will be much easier. Don't miss Jerash, the site is wonderful.

Wonderful, unforgettable tours at Petra and Jerash, Ajloun, Amman City with Monther and JDTours
Sep 2017 • Solo
I contacted JDTours from Switzerland via e-mail in view of a trip to Jordan, seeing the very good reviews on the internet. My trip was for business and managed to get two free days to explore Jordan from Amman. I was impressed beyond words with the beauty of Petra, Jerash, Ajloun, Amman, etc. , and also with the safety and tolerance in Jordan. The experience with JDTours, the quality of their services, their reliability and dignity created wonderful memories that I will never forget. I would like to highlight the professionalism of the tours consultant Ms. Samar and the great, knowledgeable and very intelligent driver Monther who rendered my experience unique. Thank you so much.
