Description

Begin your 6-hour private tour with a morning pick up from your central Amman hotel. Meet your informative private driver who doubles as your guide, and start out on your explorations of the Jordanian capital’s highlights. As you travel, hear about the history of this fascinating city, whose past stretches back to 3500 B.C. or before. Hear about the city’s days under the Roman Empire, and how it was occupied by the Nabataeans and Byzantines. View one of Amman’s star attractions, the King Abdullah Mosque, famous for its blue mosaic dome, and the nearby Coptic Church. Next, make your way to Amman Citadel, the hilltop collection of antiquities that looms over the city with a private local guide. Explore the timeworn Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic relics, and pay a visit to the Citadel’s Archaeological Museum to inspect its collections of ancient artefacts discovered at sites from across Jordan. Then, continue to the Roman Amphitheatre, a magnificent hillside structure believed to have been built in the 2nd century. Admire the symmetry and scale of the theatre as your guide explains how it was built as part of the Roman city of Philadelphia, and could accommodate up to 6,000 spectators. Continue to visit the Museum of Popular Traditions to see the exhibition of traditional dress and jewellery. Pass the “Raghadan Palace”, the burial place of the late King Hussein, and ride around the downtown area for free time at its vibrant markets, traditional mosques, and churches. Then, stroll along Rainbow Street, Amman’s colourful arts and shopping hotspot, passing the Jordan River Foundation and residence of King Talal. Delve into the upscale districts of “Abdoun” and “Swefieh”, where luxury shopping centres and swanky private villas line the streets.

After your classic city tour include the visit of the Jordan Museum marking Jordan’s history. Then proceed to visit the vintage, Hashemite Royalty private collection cars at the Royal Car Museum, located in the leafy gardens of King Hussein Park, home of the Late King Hussein beautiful grand elegant Mosque. The museum showcases a rare collection of Jordan's vehicles ranging from King Hussein bin Ali's cars that came to Amman in 1916 to modern sports cars. Please note that Tuesdays both museums are closed. Your 6-hour tour ends back at your hotel. Alternatively, ask for a drop off at one of the malls or Abdali Boulevard for shopping.
