This morning at around 10 am our coach will depart from the hotel in Amman to downtown Amman.
This Walking tour will enable us to feel how the local Jordanians go about their daily life.
On arrival to down town Amman, we will be dropped off in front of the local Gold Souk and will start walking though it and if guests wish to look buy at their easy they sure can, were at the end of Gold Souk, our first stop will take place, at a local fresh juice shop, to taste fresh sugar cane in a glass made on the spot especially for us.
Then we will continue to Nymphaeum, dating back to the 2nd century AD from the Roman period where in that time this location was used to drink water from. Our guide that is accompanying us will give us a brief on its history,
Across the street from the Nymphaeum we will start hearing the voices of the local vendors calling on their products that are for sale, which will start our venture in the old Green Market & the Spice Market on a bargaining spree accompanied and assisted by chefs of Beit Sitti.
Beit Sitti is an old local home dating back to the early 60s that used to be owned by the grandmother of the present owners whom are three young Jordanian ladies that used to love their grandmother’s food and, when she passed away, they’ve decided to turn her home in to a local venue that one can make their own homemade meal named “Beit Sitti” (my grandmother’s home)
Once we arrive to the market the group will be given list of items to buy and will start the local experience to purchase the goods that they will make their lunch from by purchasing the greens the spices and the deserts.
After we do our lunch shopping the Beit Sitti chefs will leave us to wander around the old shops then we will take the local service taxi and continue to meet them at the location where we will have on arrival a local Arak drink served with some local pastries and we will start our casual cooking experience as if at an old home where we will prepare our lunch and enjoy the local homemade food with some drinks on the terrace of Beit Sitti overlooking parts of the old Amman and feeling how the real locals live in our capital.
