Alternative Downtown Tour
On this tour, I will guide you through an in-depth journey through modern Amman focusing on its history. We will highlight the most important historical events of modern day Jordan by visiting places and people that bring these events to life. This tour highlights the differences between the western and less-visited eastern side of the city, the role of immigrants, and economic history that has contributed to the east-west divide. Observing street art, graffiti, and local markets will help us explore the economic realities of each area. We will learn about daily life in east Amman from its residents, including the local art of pigeon breeding and training. I have a passion for storytelling and connecting guests with locals to learn about what life is like in Amman set against the last 150 years of its history. As many of the reviews have noted, guests find this connection to be special and unique, and something that most touristic experiences do not offer. I would love to host you on this tour to meet the beautiful people and learn about the rich history of this city. Sharing a traditional dinner (Iftar during Ramadan) and conversation with a family host can be arranged for a modest additional cost, if desired. Please send a direct message if you're interested. Other things to note: A more suitable time for the guests and the tour guide can be arranged after booking.
