Temple of Hercules, Amman, Jordan

Amman and Jerash

Jordan’s capital Amman gives its visitors the chance to experience a more modern Arab city. Combine this with a visit to the Roman city of Jerash.

Amman is a clean, modern Arab city with excellent hotels, good roads and charming guides who bring the city to life with their story-telling. To the north, you will find one of the countries lesser-known but no less fascinating treasures in the Roman city of Jerash.

Lying just 45 minutes north of the capital, Amman; the city is remarkable for its unbroken chain of human existence. Today, with many of its richly embellished marble and granite structures still standing, it is acknowledged as one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world and includes a collonaded street, a square, two amphitheatres and several churches. Jerash can be visited alone or together with the Crusader Castle of Ajloun, and the strategically placed Um Qais.

Tom Frost

Having travelled to different parts of the world over the years it never ceases to amaze me how you constantly learn and evolve from the adventures you experience. I adore working in an environment where I can share my passion for the world and discuss fascinating stories both from my experiences and that of our clients. In the past year I’ve delved into the wintery beauty of St Petersburg, trekked through the colourful desert in Jordan and sailed down the iconic Nile in Egypt.

Katie Benden

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.
