Every aspect of a trip to Amman may be expertly planned by our staff, including transportation, guided tours, hotels, tickets, meals, shared and private day trips, shore excursions, and packages for both individuals and small groups.
Getting around Jordan on day trips is a great way to explore this country's rich history. The ancient Roman ruins of Jerash, the ruins of the desert castles, and the ruins of the Dead Sea are all within easy reach of Amman. If you are planning to visit all of these attractions, you may want to consider hiring a private tour guide. You can get a tour that includes a hotel pickup, a personal driver/guide, and some meals. This is an especially good option for travelers who don't have their own car or who don't want to take on the expense of renting a car.
You can also find day trips from Amman that allow you to see the ruins of the ancient Nabatean city of Petra. The city is a popular tourist destination and can be explored in a single day. The Monastery of Petra is not included in most day trips to the site, but you can take time to visit it during your stay in the area.
Another place to consider taking a day trip from Amman is the city of Madaba. This is a city with connections to the Byzantine and Roman empires. There are frequent buses that run between Amman and Madaba daily. The most famous site in Madaba is the St George's Church, which has a mosaic that shows a map of the Middle East. The church is also known as the "Church of the Map".
You can also consider making a day trip to the Dead Sea. This area is a popular pilgrimage destination and has high salinity levels, which make it suitable for swimming and relaxing in the water. You can spend the entire day at the beach or you can combine the beach with a visit to the Mount Nebo and the Ajloun Castle. The drive is short (less than an hour), but you will need a hat for the sun. If you are traveling by yourself, you can hire a JETT bus for the ride. The bus trips last about 45 minutes and leave from several different stations throughout Amman. You can buy a day pass for 10JD and get access to on-site bars, restaurants, and public areas at the resort.
You can combine a trip to the Dead Sea with a trip to the Ajloun Castle, which was once an important site for many groups. You can climb the roof of the castle for sweeping views, and you can learn about the area's history inside the walls. You can also visit the Panoramic Complex to view lookout points. You can also try canyoning in the river canyon of Wadi Mujib.
If you'd prefer to skip the beach, you can visit Qasr al-Mshatta. This ruins is located near Queen Alia International Airport and was restored extensively in 2013. The southern main facade has elaborate ornamentation. You can only access this ruins with a private vehicle. It takes about an hour to travel to the ruins from Amman.
