    First let me say that Zaid was very nice and his driving skills were very good. That said, the tour was not as described. His English skills were very limited. Based on the description, we expected to be led on a walking tour with a guide that would describe the areas we were in. Instead, we were driven to areas where he intended to just let us out to walk around on our own. We asked that he come with us, which he did but with the limited English we got little to no information. If you're interested in being driven around then exploring on your own, this tour could work for you (driving in Amman is challenging and we felt safe with his driving). If you want a tour where the guide informs you about Amman, this tour does not fit the bill.

    Our driver was the lovely Basel.He was amusing and so laidback nothing was ever too much trouble. We did this during Ramadan in April and picked the 6pm slot. Tip: during Ramadan best to pick an earlier or later slot as by 6pm everything was shutting down for Iftar but it still worked out ok. Basel improvised and took us to King Abdullah mosque first which was lovely & peaceful and like everywhere we went in Jordan so welcoming to non muslims. Then he dropped us off to wander around downtown by which time it was heaving with people breaking their fast and then we drove around a few main districts and ended up in Rainbow Street which is surprisingly long and with a steep incline at the other end of it. Rainbow St was ok but I think it's probably livelier when it's not Ramadan.We felt super safe throughout.

    A couple of months ago i took this very unique tour, the private Half Day Walking Tour of Amman. I had a wonderful afternoon exploring the city of Amman with my personal driver and guide Hassan!!! He was very kind, helpful and knowledgeable, which made my experience absolutly amazing!!! He gave me a fantastic insight of the city and the country, its culture and the gastronomy. I had the chance to walk around the Souk, try some special street food and walk around Rainbow Street. The agency, Zaid Tours, was very helpful and professional. They gracelly designed a personalized tour, where i also got to see Amman’s Roman Theater and the Citadel This tour is a MUST if you are visiting Amman!!!
