    What to Expect
    You will be picked up from your hotel in Amman to start your private tour with a panoramic visit of the city of Amman downtown market and city center with its traditional “souk”. You will have a beautiful view point of the city from the Citadel and continue to visit King Abdullah Mosque; it is one of the most famous and most recognizable structures in Amman. It was built as a memorial for the late King Abdullah I. The Blue Mosque, as it is popularly known is an elite example of Islamic architecture. It can house up to 7000 worshippers. The cavernous, octagonal prayer hall is capped by a magnificent blue dome 35m in diameter, decorated with “Qur’anic” inscriptions. This is the only mosque in Amman that openly welcomes non-Muslim visitors. Proceed for a short drive to the east of Amman, where “Raqeem Cave” is located and where the Seven Sleepers stories take place. It is a story of a group of youths who hide inside a cave outside the city of Ephesus around 250 A.D. to escape a religious persecution and emerge 300 years later. The cave was a part of a Byzantine grave yard. The entrance to the cemetery leads to a central hall branching out to three shrines with vaulted arch ceilings. There are seven stone grave yards more in the eastern and western “Alkutin” decorated with engineering and plant ornaments. Back to your hotel in Amman where is tour come to an end.
