He is an enthusiastic narrator, takes into account your wishes and later in the day we have done a wonderful hike with him to the hot springs through the nature reserve.
Nice piece of history, or what is left of it, since many houses have been build on the site using the stones from the old buildings. But different from the other places in Jordan, because of the stone used to build.
A very small museum - less than 15 minutes to see everything in it - displaying things recovered from the Umm Qais site. When we were there, many of the displays were empty and the whole place was disorderly. Just take a stroll through it while exiting the Umm Qais site.
