What You Can Expect

Private Half-Day Tour to The Dead Sea

Float in the Dead Sea on this half-day tour

Depart your central Amman hotel and chat to your private guide as you set off on your 4-hour visit to the Dead Sea. Then, settle into your private, air-conditioned minivan and drink in the views as you travel past Jordan’s rugged landscapes and mountains.

Along the way, hear fascinating facts about the Dead Sea, a huge salt lake that sits around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, the lowest point on Earth. The famously salt-rich waters make floating easy, and the lake’s mineral-packed black mud is used in an array of therapeutic and cosmetic treatments.

On arrival, admire the views over the vast, glittering expanse of water, and enjoy a drop-off at the Dead Sea Beach Rest House. Here, enjoy ample free time to take a ‘swim’ and relax on the sands. Be sure to lie back in the waters to capture the iconic pose of reading a newspaper!

If you’ve upgraded, head instead for the Dead Sea Spa Hotel where you can take advantage of a wider range of facilities. Enjoy a ‘swim’ in the lake, laze on the beach, take a dip in the outdoor swimming pools and feel free to use the showers, sunbeds and towels. Plus, if you wish, visit the hotel spa to indulge in any pampering Dead Sea treatments (own expense) that take your fancy, such as a revitalizing body scrub or refreshing massage.

Later, relax on your return drive to Amman, where your trip finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.

Very fun and interesting. Recommend combining this trip with a visit to the Jordon river where Jesus was baptized. It is very close.

3 star rating: Worth doing October 2011

Driver was very nice, he picked us up on time, drove us to the Dead Sea and sat and waited until we were finished and then drove us back. All we paid for was for someone to drive us there and back really and we could have paid a lot less to do that elsewhere. I think this excursion is overpriced. When it says private half day tour, I think you expect more than just the transfer there and back. Dead Sea was amazing by the way but we could have paid half the price for it if we arranged our own taxi/car.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2009

The restaurant there was quite terrible, crowded, mass food and the smells of bad cooking kept us from eating. We left hungry. The beach was really rocky, I wish I had brought beach shoes. I could not keep upright in the water, so had to spend my time on the beach. I could have skipped this stop, and would not do it again.
