The art tour was fascinating. Hind is very knowledgable about individual artists and pieces of art from Jordan and across the region. She is also incredibly kind and thoughtful. She took me to several galleries exhibiting a wide range of art and also introduced me to some local street art as we walked. She shared valuable insights. I really enjoyed it and I learned a lot!

Hind offered a personal and unique perspective on the rise of the prominence of art in Amman. She was incredibly knowledgeable on the paintings we saw and beyond. Structured, on-time, and very personable! I would say the tour itself offers a great sample of modern Middle Eastern art, a good place to start for an introduction to it or broadening was your understanding of the culture and its arts. I would absolutely recommend this!

While the entire experience was a relatively swift one, we get to explore the local and regional art scene with more than adequate time. So the activity for us is rather a comfortable pacing but not too overwhelming at the same time to us. During the activity, Hind has shared the perspectives of the artists and hence we had better understanding on the back stories of the art behind all these talented artists, what drove and motivated them on producing some of these awe-inspiring arts. Highly recommended!

Hind is a fantastic guide! Our small group spent the morning walking from gallery to gallery where she knew each owner, and more importantly all the artists whose work was on display. Hind’s knowledge provided context and perspective. She spoke a lot about the Jordanian and regional arts scenes, the themes of contemporary Islamic artwork and the artists behind it. We were welcomed warmly and felt like very special guests indeed. I highly recommend this tour, not just for art lovers but for those who want an insight into the cultural happenings of modern day Amman and Jordan. Hind is friendly, intelligent and passionate about her community. Thank you for a unique tour!

The experience with Hind was fantastic! She is so knowledgeable and passionate about the art scene in Jordan and supporting Jordanian and other artists in the region. She was friendly and open to answering questions and explaining more. The art itself was special to learn about but Hind leading the tour put the experience as a must do for your visit in Amman. There’s no better way to get an introduction into art and culture in Jordan.
