The church at Madaba with the mosaic map was incredible, as was the swimming in the Dead Sea. Awesome!!!

A pretty good tour. Madaba and Mount Nebo were worth seeing but swimming in the dead sea was definitely the highlight - even though it was winter.

If you manage to get Shaadi you will have a great day, we were also lucky with the weather that day but unfortunately Red sea was too choppy and windy to fully experience the floating experience. Also note that this is a local beach that they take you too, you will be surrounded by conservative locals, not the time to break out your bikini! The beach is not that great, the Israel side of the Red Sea is much prettier and do not expect to get free mud, you have to buy it! Madaba and Mount Nebo are nice to view the sights of Jordan with a Christian background but that's about it

Madaba and Mount Nebo was basic. The Dead Sea was the main attraction. I did not bring my bathing suit to Jordan but at the Dead Sea resort there were many available for a great price. The change lockers are great and very clean....remember to bring flip flops to wear.

Seeing Madaba and Mount Nebo was good but brief. The tour didn't represent good value for money. It was easily do-able from Amman by taxi, which would have cost a lot less.

Our driver was not the best tour guide, but Mount Nebo was definitely worth a stop, especially if you are thrilled, as I am, by the religious significance of its being where Moses first saw the promised land. Madaba was a bit of a yawn.
