Departure Time

8:00 AM
Meet a private driver at your hotel by the Dead Sea, then travel to the ancient city of Jerash in a climate-controlled vehicle (the trip from the northern edge of the Dead Sea takes roughly 1.5 hours).

Learn the history of the ruined city, which was founded by Alexander the Great in the 2nd century B.C., and explore the sprawling site with a knowledgeable guide. Walk alongside long colonnades that line the Oval Plaza, see ancient theaters, and visit the temples where the people of Jerash would gather to worship.

With a private guide, your trip through Jerash can be customized to your interests, exploring the archeological site at your own pace. Following your time in Jerash, continue to the nearby city of Umm Qais, which looks out over the Northern Jordan Valley, the Sea of Galilee, and the Golan Heights.

Visit the Umm Qais Museum, an Ottoman governor’s house that’s been restored as a home for ancient artifacts, then take a walking tour of the oldest part of Umm Qais. Take in the Roman theater, the basilica church whose octagonal altar was once a temple, and city’s unusual east–west main street. Following your tour of Umm Qais, begin the return trip to the Dead Sea, where this tour concludes.

Stop At:  
Jerash Ruins
Then, start out on your full-day trip to Jerash and Umm Qais, home to the ruins of two of ancient Rome’s Decapolis cities — a group of 10 situated on the frontiers of the Roman Empire in the Middle East. First, venture northward through Jordan’s green landscapes to Jerash, a modern city fringed by the relics of the once-prosperous Roman city known as “Gerasa” - Jerash. Meet your friendly local guide at the entrance, and enjoy a private tour of the spectacular site, one of the best-preserved Roman cities in the Middle East. Pass through the monumental Hadrian’s Arch that was the city’s main gateway, and ogle the classic ruins spread before you.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Oval Plaza
Then, stroll around this once-bustling city to see highlights such as the colonnaded avenue, the Temples of Zeus and Artemis, the Hippodrome chariot-racing arena, and the Oval Plaza; an egg-shaped forum framed by a ring of standing columns. As you explore, hear captivating tales about “Gerasa” during its heyday. Learn how Alexander the Great conquered the city in the 2nd century B.C., and how later, local farmers cultivated much-coveted fruits and vegetables to sell on to the wealthy Roman residents.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Umm Qais
After free time to explore on your won, continue to the village of Umm Qais, overlooking the ruins of another Roman Decapolis city known as “Gadara”. Soak up the views from here over the Sea of Galilee and Golan Heights to explore the Greco-Roman ruins, including the amphitheater, crumbled mausoleum, basilica terrace, as well as other theaters and treasures.
