This was a great food tour. Ali knows all the best hidden eateries in the downtown area. The tour is perfect to sample a wide range of traditional Jordanian/middle eastern food -- from savory to sweet. Also, Ali is super chilled guy with great sense of humor, and the conversation alone is worth the tour.

Ali knows some of the best hidden spots in the city. Whether you're interested in just tasting the food or shopping like a local, Ali can take you to some of the tastiest places in Amman. I was lucky enough to be the only one on the tour that day so we had lots of time to chat and share experiences. Doing the tour in the morning I made sure not to eat breakfast first as I had read other reviews that you're kept well fed throughout - definitely make sure you come with an empty stomach. Ali is such a friendly and lovely host, this experience made for a wonderful conclusion to my time in Amman!

Great little tour through downtown Amman. Visited a bunch of hidden gems and sampled the food, all delicious. Ali is a top guide - interesting, cheerful and easy going. Full of great tips on places to go and things to do while in Jordan.

Very good food tour, Ali is very interesting, funny and friendly, he made us discover nice and hidden places in Amman. With him you only have a taste of the food, but also of the culture. I really recommend this food tour, the food was amaizing, we tasted a lot of different salty and sweet jordanian specialties.

The food tasting with Ali was really interesting. He showed us the underground places with great food. One tip: come with empty stomach!
