You will leave Amman to visit Madaba a city known for it's mosaics. The most popular and well known is the ancient and most complete mosaic map of Jordan and the Holy Land of the 6th century in St George Orthodox Church, marked with the points of interest of some historical stories recorded in the Bible.
Next you will climb up Mount Nebo where Moses died. Enjoy the view of the Holy Land and also see more mosaics of different animals and figures found inside the church of Mount Nebo.
Visit Amman's downtown market and city center, it's traditional souks, coffee shops, restaurants selling local food and sweets, churches and mosques amongst other popular places.
Amman is also the ancient city of Philadelphia with its Roman theater and many other monuments that can be visited like the Citadel. You will pass by the Late King Hussein Palace, where he is buried, then drive to the other side of the city where you can see the beautiful houses made of white stones of the higher class in Abdoun.
You will see the pubs, international restaurants, and discotheques as you become familiar with the contrast in infrastructure and life style from the old and traditional, to the new and modern.
As the Ministry of Jordan does not allow a driver to also be a guide, there is not a guide included in the cost of your tour. Your driver will be very informative and be able to point out and explain sites as you drive past. Many people prefer to visit the sites and follow the walking tracks on their own, although there will be local guides available for hire on arrival at Mt Nebo for an approximate cost of US$15.00 per visit. Your driver will be happy to assist you with any questions or exchange of money.
This is a private tour so please list any special interests you have (art, architecture, history, culture) at time of booking to alert our driver, so that he or she can better prepare for your private tour.
