Itinerary

9.00 AMAmman Sightseeing Tour

We will start our tour with Jordan’s capital, Amman, and enjoy the magnificent contrast of the historical sites and bustling modern life.
Modern Amman is quite young: the city as such began to form only at the end of the 19th century, but people have been living here for more than 10 thousand years. The Old Testament Rabbath-Ammon and ancient Philadelphia were flourishing for many centuries on the site of modern Amman.
The first point of our visit will be the Citadel (Jebel Al-Qala’a) with historical monuments including the remains of the fortress walls of different eras, the partially restored colonnade of the Temple of Hercules, the Byzantine church (VI century), Al-Qasr palace (VIII century) and the Archaeological Museum (1950), where the famous “Qumran scrolls” are kept. At the foot of the Fortress Mountain, there is an ancient amphitheater in excellent condition (it was designed for 6 thousand spectators), the Nymphaeum (I-II century AD), as well as the Folklore Museum and the Jordanian Museum of Folk Traditions, located in the building of the ancient Odeon.
Afterwards, you will have time to explore Jabal Amman, one of the oldest parts of Amman.

12.00 PMTown of Salt Tour

After a 45-minute drive, we will arrive at the historic Town of Salt.After 45 minutes drive we will arrive in the ancient town of Salt – several centuries ago it was the capital of the ancient state that occupied the territory of present-day Jordan.

The architecture of Salt is greatly influenced by Ottoman Empire, which once held undivided dominion over these lands. We will walk along picturesque narrow streets with houses of shining white stone and narrow lancet windows typical of Turkish buildings.

We will visit a school of folk crafts, where potters work in front of the visitors and hand embroidery and local fabrics are made in all their oriental wealth.

The Salt Archaeological Museum houses a large collection of traditional Palestinian embroidery, Bedouin carpets, ceramics, antique silver jewelry, mother-of-pearl and olive wood, and a wide variety of traditional handicraft products. 

2 PMBack to hotel

Finally, you will be transferred to your hotel or residence in Amman.

What to Expect
  • It is essential that you read our booking conditions we sent to you by email and can be checked online. The booking conditions are an important part of the contract for your holiday. They set rules, guidelines and conditions in which we work with you and determine payment and cancellation policy. When you book with us we assume the booking conditions are read, understood and agreed.
  • Travel insurance is highly recommended for all travelers. At a minimum your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation as all deposits paid are non-refundable, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Go Aqaba Travel does not offer travel insurances.
  • At the airport our representative waits for you with a Go Aqaba Travel sign after you passed through the customs. At the Arava Border in the south we will meet you inside the Jordan border terminal, at Allenby Bridge and Sheikh Hussein Border outside the Jordan border terminal.
  • Most nationals obtain the Jordanian Visa at Amman Airport and the land borders upon arrival. Except for arrivals through the Allenby Bridge/King Hussein Bridge where all nationals need the visa in advance. The visa fee upon arrival is 20 Jordanian Dinar per person and has to be paid in cash; an exchange booth is available. Your passport has to be valid minimum 6 month while traveling in Jordan. If you are not sure about your visa status contact us or the Jordanian embassy in your country of residence.
  • The official currency is the Jordanian Dinar (JD), which is divided into 100 piastres or 1,000 fils. Notes are in denominations of JD 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1. It is easy to change foreign currency at banks, moneychanger or better hotels, most accepted are USD, GBP and Euros. Banks are closed on Fridays and Saturdays. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are the most widely accepted credit cards. ATMs are available in larger towns and at the airport. The maximum daily withdrawal amount is around JD 500, depending on your particular card. Check with your bank for information on ATM international fees. We recommend that you carry some cash in case ATMs can not be accessed, are broken down or run out of cash.
  • It is necessary to mention that Jordan is not a cheap destination. But as every traveller is different, please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, food and shopping. The costs for lunch and dinner vary. If you are happy with a sandwich or a shawarma at local restaurant or take away, this is already available for 3-4 USD per person (without drinks), but better restaurants charge 16-20 USD per meal/per person (no drinks), same at 4 star hotels for main buffet 20-30 USD per meal/per person. A large bottle of water in the local market is 70 Cent, a soft drink (0.30l) is 40 Cent, in tourist areas the rates are higher.
  • Jordan is characterized by a Mediterranean climate and the best travel time is spring and autumn, March until May, September until November. Summer is hot and sunny, especially in Aqaba and at the Dead Sea. These two areas are in turn ideal for a winter break due to the mild temperatures (16-22 °C) in this season. In the rest of the country winter weather can be cool, with rain and occasional snow. Jordan is a very sunny country with average daily sunshine hours ranging from six to seven in winter and twelve to thirteen in summer. Although summer temperatures are high, the nights are rather cool.
