I was born in Downtown (Downtown) and there I used to do a walking tour and I saw with my own eyes how Amman has developed for more than 50 years, I was the first person start the walking tours in Amman, and I speak as a witness about Amman. And I have about 200 reviews at Facebook page, free walking tour in Amman Because we started to talk about it at Facebook from long time ago. And I have above 100 reviews at tripadvisor Olso free walking tour in Amman and more And some in anther deffrant side's all for Mohammad. Because iem only Mohammad doing walking tour in Amman on other platforms like trip advisor. All real reviews , I talk about social relations, how they were and how they have become now, and I talk about old real stories, and where were the old houses that we used to play when we were children, and where were me and my children friends picking berries, and how was the purchase of vegetables and food because, I used to go with my parents to buy from the oldest vegetable market in Amman and it still exists. Also I talk about the different markets in Amman and the story of each market and the reason for its name. Some of these markets have funny reasons for their naming. I am trying to make this tour different, and its theme is about the culture of the local community and more social comes from someone who lived it and is not found in books. Because I am trying to show the visitor the social and cultural life of the people of Amman. Except for anything touristy or tourism-related.

About the Tour

We should meet at the Amman Pasha Hotel, opposite the Roman Amphitheater, and there you must ask about Muhammad, the old man who does the walking tour.

Then we go up to the roof of the hotel to see the distinctive view of old Amman and explain from there how the tour will be, we will explain there the modern history of Amman, the interesting stories about Amman and the distinctive places.
We will talk about the tour and how it will be, and about the memories of how Amman was and how it is now.
There is nothing related to politics, religion, ethnicity, or anything that provokes sensitivity.

Then the tour begins by walking in the oldest main street in Amman and the old market, after that we head to Saef Al-Sail Street, and (Rove of River) as I remember this area before the street was built.
The explanation will happen during walking or stopping sometimes to give details about few places.

Then we stop at the oldest vegetable and food market in Amman and talk about it before visiting it.
We stop at each market and explain everything related to it before actually visiting it, including the history and the reason for naming them.
Visitors will also see the funny strange food that some Jordanians eat. There is a lot of laughter on this tour, I want to make the visitors happy with this tour.
Also, we will visit the most famous mosque in Amman, which is the symbol of Amman, and talk about it and what was before it was a mosque and the old buildings too.

The tour with Mohammed was very interesting! We discovered the city of Amman and it's history thanks to Mohammed' s experience as he was born and grew up in Amman. The tour brings you around the main places of Amman including the markets, mosques and he gave us very useful tips. Very kind and friendly! Totally recommended the tour with Mohammed

Mohammad provided a lovely tour, taking us back into his childhood and how he has seen Amman develop to the city it is today. As a solo-traveller hé provided me with great tips , tricks and insides on how to plan my days properly. You’re definitely in safe hands if you’re looking for a tour that highlights the history and culture of Amman.

I have booked the tour last minute and Mohammad came. Then only I realized I am the only person who is doing the tour. Good that he has chosen to continue the tour. He grew up in this area and pretty much knows everything about this area. He also guided me on what else can I do in the city. Thumbs up!
