As I said in my previous review in Jordan public transportation is very bad. This trip was a bit expensive but organisation was great. The driver picked us up at our hotel and than we visited roman theatre, amman citadel, jordan museum, private car museum and mosque. In the end he brought us back to our hotel. After Jordan museum we went for lunch ,but its up to you when you want to have it. Lunch was delicious, but you have to pay for drinks. Your driver is arranging everything for you. All the time he gave us tickets and let us go. He was waiting for us in the front in car and he said we can come whener we finish,which was super nice cause we had time for everything and we really enjoyed this tour.
