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 vehicle 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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

We arrived in the last days of Ramadhan and there were very few people on the public beach or in the public swimming pools. We had the a magical time and it was easy to just float for a couple of hours. Our driver was knowledgeable and pleasant and although the tour said half a day, he let us stay as long as we wanted. I would do this trip again!

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

An enjoyable trip. Swimming in the dead sea was a great experience and I enjoyed the outdoor pool at the beach house. I have to say however that the trip was a bit expensive for what it was and they could have provided a driver with a higher knowledge of English and more of a commentary enroute. I could also have done with more time at the beach house - at least an extra hour or two. All in all though - not bad.

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.

The hotel is nice, but too much trash at the beach.

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.
