    What to Expect
    Your friendly and professional driver will meet you at your hotel lobby either in Amman at 9.00am. Start your 5 hour tour at the Citadel, the main archaeological site of the city. You will have the option to hire a local guide at the entrance of the Citadel for a detailed tour. The Citadel or Rabbath-Ammon, went through numerous excavations which revealed Roman, Byzantine and early Islamic artifacts. Located on top of a 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. At the Citadel, the first museum to tour is the Jordan Archaeological Museum, located up the hill from the entrance of the Citadel, housing a timeline from the Roman, Byzantine and Early Islamic.

    Once you finish the Citadel and the Archaeological Museum, your driver will be waiting at the entrance to drive you to the hip neighborhood of Jebal Whebdeh. Here you can find Amman’s modern museum, the Royal Society of Fine Arts Museum and Gardens, which houses the largest collection of artworks by contemporary artists from the developing world. This collection includes paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, weaving and ceramics from over 59 countries in Asia and the Middle East. A gift shop is located in the museum featuring prints and Jordanian crafts for sale.   

    End your tour at The Royal Automobile Museum and The King Abdullah Gardens. The museum depicts the history of the Hashemite Kingdom through featured cars which highlight the life of his Majesty, the late King Hussein and the current King Abdullah. You will have the opportunity to drive around and take photos in The King Abdullah Gardens which includes the largest mosque in Jordan, the King Hussein Mosque. A gift shop is located at the Royal Museum with souvenirs and trinkets.

    After a lengthy history of Jordan with the Royal Museum Tour, your driver will then take you back to your hotel or location in Amman and en route, stop for a snack if desired.

    My driver was scheduled to come to my hotel at 9am to start the tour. At 9;30, I asked the concierge to call tour company. Agent there said driver forgot, then that there was a misunderstanding and my tour was to begin at 10 (9:00 was printed on the voucher they provided).

    Response from MJinJordan, Owner at Amman History and Museums Private Tour
    Responded 27 Feb 2019
    Greetings, Thank you for your remarks as we do take full responsibility of the error in the meeting time. The driver was instructed to be dispatched prior to 10am to your hotel, though the tour started at 9am and we did our very best to get to your hotel before 10am , an error on our management. Once we realized the meeting time discrepancy we then notified the hotel, the concierge at the hotel to share with you that we made an error of the starting time and we were on our way. We do our very best to be an efficient company when we realized our mistake. Though, we are pleased that you enjoyed the Amman Tour and we hope that our open air museum met all your expectations. If your travels take you back to Jordan, we hope to assist and share our country with you once again. Thank you.
