Jordan is considered to be one of the countries where many cultures were established, most importantly the Greek, Roman, Byzantine and Islamic, all of which have contributed to the cultural fabric. Examples of archaeological attractions are palaces, temples, churches, mosques, cities, theatres, castles and places of human habitation, such as tells, villages or campsites. Additionally, modern attractions include the many recreational facilities in various regions around Jordan.
In addition, the program includes courses that discuss communication skills and tour guiding techniques, together with others that introduce various activities associated with the social aspects of Jordanian society, so that the tour guide is able to deliver the culture behind all attractions to all types of tourists.
Realizing the importance of the practical side of education, the Jordan Applied University organizes fourteen practical tours to most of the touristic and historical sites in Jordan, with licensed tour-guides in attendance, in order to shed light on the practical and technical issues of tour guiding.
