Your first stop will be the key site in Amman, the Citadel or Rabbath-Ammon went through numerous excavations which revealed is revealed through a timeline of History. At the Citadel Visitors Center, the driver will arrange your ticket and hire your personalized local guide for a more in depth history lesson. The Citadel a blend of Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic artifacts and antiquities all nestled on one ‘Jebal or hill" . The Citadel allows for stunning views of downtown Amman, the Jordan flag, and the Roman Amphitheater which dates back to the 2nd century AD. Take your time and tour the Citadel and the many sites it has to offer. While at the Citadel, we advise a visit to the Jordan Archaeological Museum located up the hill from the entrance of the Citadel included with your entrance fee. Follow the paved street till you reach the end, the museum will be on the right hand side, full of History dated back to the Roman and Byzantine era.
Once you have finished from the Citadel, your driver will be waiting at the entrance to take you to the ‘energized’ downtown Amman and the 6,000 year old Roman Theater. Carved into a hillside, this stunning 2nd-century structure is the most notable remnant of Philadelphia, the ancient city that once stood on the site of Amman. After a tour of the Theater, you will have the option to walk or drive to the downtown souks and feel the 'buzz' of the Ammonite’s as they shop for spices, gold, fruit and more. Hungry? Just ask your driver for his favorite shawarma or falafel sandwich spot in Amman along the way.

Great experience and would recommend to anyone. The tour was around 4 hours which was perfect for us for our first full day in Amman.
The tour was ok, but its not really a tour. You get a driver and thats it really! My driver was very nice and very friendly, but it is for the organiser I am this poor review. You are brought to The Citadel, The Roman Theater and the entrance fee to the Theater is 2JD only. Your better hiring a taxi and doing this for a quarter of the price. When we got the the wine shop, no one expected us and it was very akward. Eventually after 10 minutes I got to taste some red wine and bought a bottle for 20jd, which I later saw for 15jd! Also brought to a tourist shop which was a complete rip off - 20jd for a small packet of face mud!!!! for over 100 this would be expensive in New York! I would not recommend.
