    This experience left us with a newfound appreciation for the city

    My friend and I recently enjoyed joining Abeer on her alternative touristic experience, and it was an absolute delight. Abeer's passion for the city and its people was evident from the moment we met, and her knowledge of history, culture, and art was truly impressive. Abeer has a connection in each block, this allowed us to learn interesting stories and discover the hidden charms of the city that are often missed by those who stick to the traditional paths. Abeer's eye for detail helped us to truly appreciate the beauty and intricacy of the city's architecture and street art and take unique pictures. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone looking to discover the real heart and soul of Downtown Amman. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a first-time visitor, this tour will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the city and its rich cultural heritage.

    Wonderful experience!

    We were a group of Jordanians and foreigners and enjoyed every part of the walk! Such a wonderful experience, allowing you to see authentic locations outside of the usual and typical sightseeing experiences. Highly recommended.

Curated name


Born and raised in Amman, Jordan, I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Yarmouk University and went on to have a rewarding career in business development at various multi-national and international corporations as well as in the field of education. It was at King’s Academy, the first boarding school in Jordan where I was one of the founding members of the school, that I discovered my love for telling street stories through photographs. In March 2020, I decided to make a career shift and become a street blogger. Armed with nothing more than a camera and my passion, I started documenting every day of street life. Today, I am a strong advocate for the promotion of street-culture in Jordan and the Arab world through my social media platforms, and my goal is to encourage more women to follow in my footsteps.
