Entrance fees to all sites are included and you have the choice to explore the sites independently or enlist the services and knowledge of a local guide.
You will be picked up from your hotel in a private air-conditioned car/mini van and taken on a sightseeing tour of the Desert Castles in the Jordanian desert.
Jordan's desert castles are a beautiful example of both early Islamic art and architecture and stand testament to a fascinating era in the country's rich history.
On this tour you will visit:
Qasr Amra: This is one of the best preserved monuments and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its interior walls and ceilings are covered with lively frescoes, and two of the rooms are paved with colorful mosaics. The paintings include themes such as hunting, dancing, and musicians, bathing scenes, cupids, and personifications of history, philosophy and poetry.
Qasr Kharraneh: With its imposing walls and panoramic views, it looks more like a palace. It is one of the best-preserved Umayyad monuments.
Qasr Azraq: Crafted from the region's black basalt rocks, the ancient fortress at Azraq has been in continuous use since late Roman times. It was the headquarters of Lawrence of Arabia during the Arab Revolt.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Amman.
