“This is a very interesting trip and I was glad that I was able to do this in the Winter months during the week as the Abandoned city really was abandoned. The added touch of eating in the canteen and meeting a self settler were classic interesting Explore extras. ”

“I was disappointed that we did not have enough time to see Amman, other than the view from the Citadel. From the tour description, I expected a walking tour of downtown, old Amman, the Roman Theatre and Rainbow Street.”
