This is a great activity to get a general overview of the great city Amman, and Jordan. My guide Huss was gracious, knowledgeable and friendly. He was punctual, the activity started with the pick-up from my hotel. Then we visited a magnificent mosque and its museum, a typical city market, the very well preserved Roman theater and the adjacent small theater. I was able to taste local specialties, yogurt, sandwich and dessert, etc. The guide's explanations were clear, useful and relevant. All in all, a necessary activity to start any visit to Jordan. Recommended!

This was by far the best private tour I have ever experienced! Hussein really knows a lot about the city and the culture. This is a must do when you’re arriving in Jordan to really get to know the people and the culture, you will feel very safe and confident after you realize that Jordan is very safe and the people are super nice. Hussein really took time for us and explained every questions we had, we had so much fun and we thank him for showing us Amman! This was really a highlight on our trip!

Great walk through all parts of Amman with Majd, who couldn't have been more friendly, open and informative talking about his city and country. I love seeing the "everyday life" parts of the city, so getting to walk through the markets and typical streets was great for me. Make sure you're hungry because Majd has many stops planned along the way!

This tour was amazing, starting with the king Abdullah mosque and then discovering downtown with its hidden markets and trying traditional snacks and foods. Hussein was an amazing tour guide, he makes you feel very comfortable, he’s friendly, respectful, and professional. Highly recommend this tour

Hussein was very knowledgeable, answered all my questions. He was very friendly and professional I strongly recommend a tour with him!
