Stop At: Amman, Amman, Amman Governorate

Begin the private tour with a morning pick up from any hotel in Amman/ Dead Sea.
Get into a climate-controlled vehicle with a private English-speaking driver and Wi-Fi services. The driver will mention places of interest, however, will not act as a guide.

Explore the heart of Amman” the downtown core “Al-Balad”, which encompasses a myriad of traditional and ancient markets, cafes restaurants, shops, and buildings. Al-
Balad’s long history leaves several historical, heritage and archeological sites such as the Amman Citadel, the Roman Amphitheatre, Roman Nymphaeum, Ummayad Monumental Gateway, and the Temple of Hercules. All of which you will get the chance to visit and explore during the tour.

Start by visiting one of Amman’s key attractions, the King Abdullah Mosque; most known for its magnificent blue dome. Continue to the Roman Amphitheatre; a 5000 seat, 2nd century Roman theatre and the most impressive relic of ancient Philadelphia. Perpendicular to the Roman Amphitheatre’s axis is the Odeon; a smaller theatre mainly used for music, poetry readings, and debates, and take a short stroll afterwards to the Roman Nymphaeum. Then, make your way to Amman the Citadel, a historical site towering above the city which comprises a 1700 meter wall that dates back to the Bronze age, the Umayyad Palace and the iconic Temple of Hercules. This collection of antiques on a single hilltop makes the Amman citadel one of the best places to visit and admire.

Ride around the downtown area, and exhibit its vibrant markets, mosques and churches, antique stores, and traditional restaurants. You also have the opportunity to try traditional Jordanian food such as kunafeh, hummus, or mansaf.

Continue your journey as you pass by panoramically through the new part of Amman, and exhibit how the old area merges with the more modern one, on your way to Madaba and Mount Nebo.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Madaba, Madaba, Madaba Governorate

Upon arrival to Madaba, explore this ancient mosaic town with a history spanning back to the 2nd century. The most well known is the mosaic map of Jordan and Holy Land of the 6th century in Greek Orthodox Church of St. George; marked with points related to historical stories mentioned in the bible.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Mount Nebo, Madaba Jordan

After indulging in these unique sites, reconvene with your driver for the return journey, ending with a hotel drop-off in Amman/ Dead Sea.
