Discover the wonders of Amman from ancient times to modern on a private tour. Enjoy included entry tickets to sights like the Royal Automobile Museum, Amman Citadel, and the Roman theater. Choose to add an optional Arabic lunch or Turkish bath to your trip. Standard TourBegin your day with morning pickup directly from your Amman hotel. Meet your private driver who will double as your guide for the day. Start learning about the highlights of Jordan’s capital as you take off to your first stop. Travel as far back as 3500 B.C. or before as you hear about the city’s origins. Learn about the city’s days under the Roman Empire and how it was occupied by the Nabataeans and Byzantines. Arrive at one of Amman’s star attractions, the King Abdullah I Mosque, famous for its blue mosaic dome. Spot the nearby Parliament Building and Orthodox Church. Make your way to the Amman Citadel, the hilltop collection of antiquities that looms over the city. At the Amman Citadel, explore the timeworn Roman, Byzantine, and early Islamic relics with your private guide. Pay a visit to the Citadel’s Jordan Archaeological Museum to inspect its collections of ancient artifacts discovered at sites from across Jordan. Continue to the Roman Amphitheater with its Hashemite Plaza, a magnificent hillside structure believed to have been built in the 2nd century. Admire the symmetry and scale of the theater as your guide explains how it was built as part of the Roman city of Philadelphia. Next, head to the Museum of Popular Traditions to see the exhibition of traditional dress and jewelry. Pass the Raghadan Palace, the burial place of the late King Hussein, and ride around the downtown area for free time at its colorful markets, mosques like the Grand Husseini Mosque, and churches. Later, stroll along Rainbow Street, Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hot spot, passing the Jordan River Foundation and the residence of King Talal. Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of Abdoun and Al Swaifyeh, where luxury shopping malls and swanky private villas line the streets. Get a closer look at local history during a visit to the Jordan Museum. Proceed to visit the vintage, Hashemite private collection of cars at the Royal Automobile Museum, located in the leafy gardens of King Hussein Park, home of the late King Hussein’s grand mosque. The Royal Automobile Museum showcases a rare collection of Jordan's vehicles ranging from King Hussein bin Ali's cars that came to Amman in 1916 A.D. to modern sports cars.

What people are saying about Capital Governorate Amman

As I said in my previous review in Jordan public transportation is very bad. This trip was a bit expensive but organisation was great. The driver picked us up at our hotel and than we visited roman theatre, amman citadel, jordan museum, private car museum and mosque. In the end he brought us back to our hotel. After Jordan museum we went for lunch ,but its up to you when you want to have it. Lunch was delicious, but you have to pay for drinks. Your driver is arranging everything for you. All the time he gave us tickets and let us go. He was waiting for us in the front in car and he said we can come whener we finish,which was super nice cause we had time for everything and we really enjoyed this tour.

Great experience! The dead sea resort spa lunch was fun. It's on your own to utilize the spa services. It's a short walk to a private beach as well as pool access in addition to a buffet style lunch. This is where I spent the most time and there is more flexibility with the private tour (utilize your time to the fullest). There is a lot of culture and history in Jordanz enjoy!

Very good tour to the mosaics in Madaba and on Mount Nebu. Swim in the Dead Sea at the 5-star hotel, followed by lunch. We were very satisfied!
