Description

Depart your Amman hotel by a private leisure air-conditioned vehicle with an English-Speaking driver who doubles up as your guide, and set off on your private tour, traveling to Madaba the city of mosaics. 

Arrive at Saint George’s Church, the 19th-century basilica in the heart of the town. This famous church houses the Madaba Mosaic Map, an intricately detailed floor mosaic of the Holy Land believed to have been created in the 6th century A.D. Admire the church interior and marvel at the stunning floor map, with its evocative depictions of ancient Jerusalem, Jericho, and lands including Lebanon, Sinai, and Egypt as your guide explains how it was unearthed in 1897 A.D. 

Proceed to the open-air museum known as the Archaeological Park, which houses a collection of ruins and mosaics like the Church of Virgin Mary and other floor house mosaics. Visit the historic Catholic Church of Saint John the Baptist, with its beautiful Bell Tower for a breath-taking view of Madaba. Visit its underground museum memorial of Saint John the Baptist. Continue to Mount Nebo, the hill where Moses is believed to have gazed out over the Holy Land. Absorb the sweeping views over the Dead Sea and Jordan Valley, and visit the Byzantine Church on the summit to see its fabled mosaics. Behold the luminous pieces of early art and their vivid recreations of animals, people, and hunting wine-making scenes in this beautiful Franciscan Monastery. Free time to explore a mosaic workshop, if interested.

Return to the capital of Amman, for a visit to the city’s highlights. Drive around the city and the downtown area past the animated markets, churches, and mosques like King Abdullah’s Mosque. 

Start by discovering the Roman, Byzantine, and Islamic-era ruins of Amman Citadel. Proceed to visit the Roman Amphitheater, carved into a hillside in the 2nd century B.C. and the most important remnant of Amman’s predecessor, the Roman white city of Philadelphia known in the past as Amon. Pass by King Hussein’s Palace, where the late, revered king is laid to rest. 

Free time at leisure in Amman's downtown area for souvenir shopping in the local gold and spice markets. Your tour then concludes by strolling along “Jabal Al-Webdeih” and “Jabal Amman” Quarters, the Rainbow Street, Amman’s colorful arts and shopping hotspot. 

Delve into the upscale neighborhoods of “Abdoun” and “Swefieh”, where luxury shopping malls and swanky private villas line the streets. After passing through modern Amman drive back to your hotel.
