Full of history and a very interesting tour. Having the Bedu experience in a neighbouring tent is a must. Quite a setting!

This castle is actually pretty well maintained and you can walk through it. It is located quite a drive from Amman but combined with another site, it is worth the visit. We stayed in Jordan for 8 days and this was easily achieved, if you...More
