Your hotel in Amman
You will be picked up from your hotel in a private air-conditioned car/mini van and taken on a sightseeing tour of the Ajloun Castle.
Travel about 73 kilometres north of Amman through a beautiful pine-forest and olive groves, arriving at the town of Ajloun. Along the way your English-speaking driver will provide background information about the castle.
Arrive at Ajloun Castle. If you wish, you may hire a local guide (cost not included) who will show you around this historical monument.
The Ajloun Castle stands atop a hill in this ancient town and affords scenic views of the scenery all around. Built in 12th century by the Muslim Sultan Saladdin, the castle is a fine example of medieval Arab and Islamic military architecture. It was built more like a rectangular fort with four square towers, dominating a wide stretch of the north Jordan Valley and passages to it. From its hilltop position, the Castle of Ajloun protected the communication routes between South Jordan and Syria. It was one of a chain of forts which lit beacons at night to pass signals from the Euphrates as far as Cairo.
The castle is beautifully preserved and is a popular attraction with its structures, towers, chambers, galleries and staircases.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel in Amman.
Please call the activity operator at least 24 hours prior to start of the tour for reconfirming departure details.
Upto 2 guests are transferred in a private A/C Car with an English-speaking driver, as follows:
Full Size Car: Mazda 6 or similar model of 2010/2011
Luxury Car: Mercedes E200 or similar model of 2010/2011
Upto 4 guests are transferred in a private A/C 7-seater mini van, with an English-speaking driver.
As the Ministry of Jordan does not allow a driver to also be a guide, a guide is not included in the cost of your tour. However, your driver will be very informative and be able to point out and explain sites as you drive past. You may prefer to visit the sites and follow the walking tracks on your own, although there will be local guides available for hire on arrival at the particular destination.
