Tour description

Hi there and welcome!
Our tour starts downtown where the true soul of Amman started and live until now where you can't miss the sights and traditions food of this city, which is painted in every corner of this city, and my task is to introduce you to these things and let you live these wonderful moments while providing sufficient information so that you can understand them more, and not only that, but I will explain everything that is important about the people and their history and how they affected by this wonderful city.
Our little adventure will start at the Roman amphitheater, and after we get to know each other, we will move towards the city center, where I will explain some things along the way so that you can understand our culture from our personal perspective, and the first stop we will visit is the Gold Market, where you will be amazed by the wonderful colors of gold and the beautiful streets and alleys that contain some of the old gold shops, which are considered one of the oldest places that sell gold. During the tour, I will explain some facts about this market, and we will pass through the oldest bookshop, not only in the city center, but in Jordan.

Mohammad was flexible in meeting with me even when I selected the wrong date. Tour is great for those wanting a quick introduction, or who are short on time, as it is only 2 hours (mine only lasted an hour). Not very in -depth, but had some good information and we made stops in the main parts of downtown. He answered my questions and was cordial. Overall it was decent.

Mohammad è stato fin da subito super disponibile e flessibile negli orari. Il tour è stato veramente interessante, la guida ci ha portati nella via principale di Amman e ci ha raccontato delle varie tradizioni e usanze Giordane, facendoci assaggiare dolci ed vedere locali tipici, dandoci anche moltissimi consigli. Super indicato per chi vuole immergersi nella cultura di Amman e conoscere usanze che senza una guida come lui probabilmente non potrebbe conoscere. Super consigliato!
