Experience a panoramic visit to the city of Amman that is enriched with glamour of the past and the present. During the 2-hour morning or evening tour, visit the ancient and modern Amman by driving in a private vehicle through its streets, downtown area and past animated markets, churches, and mosques. Start the tour driving through Jabal Al - Hussein for a breathtaking view of old Amman from the Citadel. Gaze in awe at the Roman Amphitheater, carved into a hillside in the 2nd century B.C. and the most important remnant of Amman’s predecessor, the Roman white city of Philadelphia. Pass King Hussein’s Palace, where the late, revered king is laid to rest. Proceed to the downtown area and take some free time to wander and explore the old gold and spice markets. The tour will continue to the city’s various mosques such as King Abdullah Mosque and churches like the Coptic Orthodox Church. Continue to stroll by the historical area of Jabal Al – Webdeih, famous for its different arts galleries. Then wander around Rainbow Street in Jabal Amman Quarter, the cradle of many of Amman’s landmarks: like the headquarters of the Jordan River Foundation, and the residence of King Talal. After Rainbow Street, Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hot spot; head over to the modern part of town. Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of “Abdoun” and “Swefieh”, where luxury shopping malls and swanky private villas line the streets. Alternatively, ask for a drop off at one of the malls on your tour like Galleria or Taj Mall or at Abdali Boulevard, a stylish new enclave of designer shops regarded as Amman’s up-and-coming downtown area.
Tour with Arabic Lunch or Dinner: Upgrade to a 4-hour tour and after your city tour, savor a mouth-watering lunch or dinner of “Arabic Mezze”, (small dishes) at a local restaurant. Enjoy an assortment of small plates, such as barbecued chicken and beef, hummus, salads and breads, and after your meal, relax with a hotel or shopping mall drop off - your choice!
