What You Can Expect

Private Half Day Tour to Madaba, Mount Nebo and The Dead Sea

Mosaics, Madaba

Next you will climb up Mount Nebo where Moses died. Enjoy the view of the Holy Land and also see more mosaics of different animals and figures found inside the church of Mount Nebo.

Visit the Dead Sea and the desert of Moab. It is the lowest point on earth at 1300 feet (400 meters) below sea level. The Dead Sea is one of the most incredible places in the world, known for the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Amora, which was turned into salt. The Dead Sea speaks for itself; with no living fish in it! It is by far one of Jordan's most impressive and spectacular places to visit.

Swimming in The Dead Sea is an incredible feeling as it is impossible to sink in the thick brine and is four times as salty as regular sea water. One can even recline on the water and read a newspaper. Due to the extremely high content of salts and minerals the water is known for its curative powers and its mud is used as various treatments.

GUIDES
As the Ministry of Jordan does not allow a driver to also be a guide, a guide is not included in the cost of your tour. Your driver will be very informative and be able to point out and explain sites as you drive past. Many people prefer to visit the sites and follow the walking tracks on their own, although there will be local guides available for hire on arrival at Mt Nebo for an approximate cost of US$15.00 per visit. Your driver will be happy to assist you with any questions or exchange of money. This is a private tour so please list any special interests you have (art, history, culture) at time of booking to alert our driver, so that he or she can prepare for your private tour.
