Ibrahim was a great guide! He took us through downtown Amman making time to show and taste Jordanian specialties, as well as to point out directions to help us get our bearings. He walked us through the different markets, stopping to try some excellent food, and he had a special and cool experience for us in the tailors’ market! Answered all our questions knowledgeably and was generous sharing his local expertise. Overall had a very fun and interesting walk with Ibrahim! thank you!
