I thoroughly enjoyed my tour with Amman; it was magnificent.The guide was incredible—attentive, patient, and always smiling. The itinerary was well-crafted, allowing us to explore the highlights of the city. The historical insights provided by the guide enriched the experience, making it both educational and very enjoyable. I highly recommend touring with Amman for an unforgettable exploration of the city. Thank you again Hussein 💜

Yousef Hanoon, he is the best!!! He was very flexible, kind and interested in showing things that were not included. If you are going to Amman, he is the person that I really recommend. Nowadays I can’t trust on all the reviews because some guides ask you to give the best review in front of them that I don’t like. If you are good, I’ll give you the best review. But I’ll give the best review to Yousef.

A wonderful experience, with a fantastic guide! Hussein was very accommodating, and helpful. He showed me Amman at its best (and on the first day of Ramadan - so he explained the nuances about that day/period). Highly recommended host/guide!

Hussein was very patient, he explained everything to us very well, he even took us to exchange money. We had a very close experience with a local. We really love it and recommend it.

The guide is perfect, the commitment and knowledge are enormous. In addition, a great sense of humor guarantees unforgettable experiences!
