Private Tour: Full-Day Jordan Castles Tour from Amman

    What to Expect
    In the early morning, board an air-conditioned vehicle at your Jordan hotel and venture deep into Jordan’s desert landscapes — ensure you bring sunscreen and a camera to capture Jordan’s castles on film.

    Your first stop is the walled town of Kerak, reigning 2,952 feet (900 meters) above sea level. At Kerak Castle, a 12th-century stronghold and one of the Middle East’s largest Crusader castles, you’ll have the option to explore independently or enlist the services of a local guide (own expense).

    Admire the fortress’ foreboding vaults, corridors, and towers, delve into the on-site archaeological museum, and absorb views of the Dead Sea from the castle’s hilltop perch.

    Then, reconvene with your driver and descend to Kerak town, where you'll discover its 19th-century Ottoman architecture and plethora of souvenir shops. Revitalize with lunch at a traditional Jordanian restaurant, where you’ll have the chance to purchase local delicacies at your own expense.

    Proceed to Jordan’s dramatic collection of desert castles, vast structures commissioned by 7th- and 8th-century Umayyad caliphs. Undoubtedly the best-preserved structure is Qasr Amra, a UNESCO-listed castle renowned for its vibrant interior frescoes.

    Conclude your tour with drop-off back at your Amman accommodation.
