Starting From 23 $

Discover the legendary fortresses on the desert plains of eastern Jordan. Visit archaeological highlights in the area, observing the diverse influences from a number of civilizations.

Given this is a private excursion, your itinerary is flexible-speak to your driver to tailor the experience.

Journey out of Amman and into the arid landscape, soon arriving at an area rich with historical sites, castles, and other ruins of ancient cultures. Qasr Amra is a top highlight, a UNESCO-listed World Heritage site. Admire the frescoes on the ceilings as you explore one of the most important examples of early Islamist art and architecture.

Continue on your tour, perhaps taking your driver's informed recommendations. Maybe you see the architecturally diverse Qasr Kharana, built on Roman foundations but containing examples of Greek, Arabic, and Mesopotamian influences. Or maybe it's Qasr al-Azraq, used famously as the headquarters of TE Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia).

Utilize your driver's local knowledge to personalize the experience, uncovering the foundations of modern-day Jordan.
