What people are saying about Capital Governorate Amman

Saw all the main sites that you’d struggle to see without your own car. Quite a few add ons such as 30jd to enter Dead Sea via the hotel and a few attractions that weren’t covered by Jordan pass. If you don’t have your own car then this is excellent for seeing all the top spots in the area. My driver was very friendly and bought me drinks and falafel. The guide doesn’t enter a lot of the attractions with you so you walk around by yourself for a bit of it. Overall expensive but very good to get around the area and to see the main bits. Highlight was the baptism site.

Ahmed was a fantastic driver, helped us out by waiting for us while we had a vet emergency, took us to a great resort on the dead sea with a great lunch. he was very flexible with timings all day even though the weather was extremely hot. the duration of this tour from amman is more than enough time to enjoy the dead sea and visit any shops for the products. Great day

What can I say, traveling alone I recommend traveling with this service that allows you to coordinate the places you want to visit with flights and hotels. The money is well spent. I advise.

Khalil was great. His knowledge and love of Jordan shows in his tours. Thankful to have met a great person to explore Jordan with.

Precise and Serious. Very nice and helpful driver. To be recommended.
