It came into prominence in the late first BCE (BC) through the success of the spice trade. The city was the principal city of ancient Nabataea and was famous above all for two things: its trade and its hydraulic engineering systems. It was locally autonomous until the reign of Trajan, but it flourished under Roman rule. The town grew up around its Colonnaded. Following the flow of the Wadi Musa, the city-center was laid out on either sides of the Colonnaded Street on an elongated plan between the theater in the east and the Qasr al-Bint in the west.

What people are saying about Amman

Our guide, Ahmad, was the BEST! Probably the nicest tour guide we've ever had. He made our trip to Jordan so incredible and went above and beyond. He constantly made sure we had cold drinks, bought us Turkish coffee to try, gave us portable wifi for the journey, arranged covid tests and local guides for us, and would always let you know what was a good deal or if you were getting scammed. It was really nice having a private tour as well. The itinerary and tour itself were amazing. The Bedouin camp was beautiful and had great food (we upgraded to the Luxury one and the AC was well worth it). Wadi Rum Jeep tour was super fun especially at sunset. The whole itinerary really gets you to see the highlights of the country with Dana, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba, and the Dead Sea in a short amount of time and we would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see the country of Jordan in a few days to book this tour!

We spent on this trip 2 days and it felt like we saw all the highlights of Jordan. We started in Petra and went in from behind, not the main entrance which was perfect cause we were immediately at monastery and then continued to walk down to the centre and treasury. We spent 7 hrs in Petra and came in the evening to Wadi Rum desert camp just right for the delicious dinner :) Next day we started with amazing jeep ride in the desert, later had a look at beautiful Aqaba and took a bath in Dead sea and even though it was a lot of traveling it was not exhausting but very much entertaining. If you like adventure combined with getting to know new places, people and tasting local food - this trip is the right one for you! Our tour guide Zaid and driver Khaled were amazing, very friendly and knowledgeable and they made our experience a unique one :)

Amazing experience - we were 3 guests and enjoyed everything. It's a fantastic way to see the highlights of Jordan in a short period of time. Our driver Mohammad was really nice - very friendly and patient. We talked a lot about Brazilian football :) . The car was very comfortable, and the schedule was well done. We could see all the sights. In Petra we even had enough time to make it to the Monastery, which is quite a hike. We did the Wadi Rum 4x4 tour in the first day, after Petra, which was perfect to check its main spots and the sunset. We stayed at the Rum Magic Nights camp, which is a new camp in Wadi Rum and very, very comfortable (we had a deluxe tent). All in all, we highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was amezing, the programs, the food, everything was excellent. I would recommend youe service for everyone who wants to visit Jordan, you really made our visit memorable.

Ramouni was a fantastic, knowledgeable and friendly guide. Couldn't ask for more! would definitely recommend!
