  • From Amman: Dead Sea and Madaba Tour with Hotel Pickup

    2. From Amman: Dead Sea and Madaba Tour with Hotel Pickup

    Begin your 10-hour tour with a drive from Amman to Madaba. Madaba is one of the oldest towns in the Middle East, and home to a number of churches. Many are now in ruin, but you can still see extraordinary mosaics from the 7th and 8th centuries. Visit the St. George and Martyrs churches, and later the Mount Nebo Church. Take in views of the Holy Land and the Jordan River Valley from the summit. Jericho is usually visible, and on a clear day you may see Jerusalem.

    I just finished my tour and I definitely recommend it to every traveller that wants to discover Jordan. Our driver was amazing and we had a very good time visiting the religious sites and the Dead Sea. It's a unique experience that only Jordan can offer.

  • Dead Sea Chill Out Day Trip from Jerusalem

    4. Dead Sea Chill Out Day Trip from Jerusalem

    Take a tour to the Dead Sea to laze on the beach and float in the mineral-rich waters during the best part of the day. You will depart from Jerusalem before the hottest part of the day, and spend a relaxing afternoon at the Dead Sea beach. Set in the Jordan Rift Valley, between Jordan and the West Bank, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth. Its high salt density provides you with a unique experience as you float unaided on the beautiful aquamarine surface. Cover yourself in the mineral-rich mud at a private beach at the north of the sea, and benefit from the therapeutic qualities of the natural Dead Sea mud. You will be back in Jerusalem in the late afternoon to early evening depending on the season.

    Very cool and knowledgeable guide! Everything was relaxed and well organised. Meeting point is in the hostel. We chose this trip because we didn’t want to spent a whole day, and it was excellent. We had 1.5 h at the dead see which was plenty, we didn’t want more. The ‚beach‘ and premises are like a 1 star hotel from the 70s. But you could still enjoy swimming and get mud from the ground of the see. You just need to find a spot approx. 2 meters from the shore and dig. Good value for money. We even got a towel, something to drink and eat as well. The mini bus was in proper condition and modern inside. The guide was driving carefully and we were approx. 15 people. Good value for the money for us.

    David Ringler is an awesome guide. With a group of 7 friends, we needed to leave a little later, no issue. The program was very fluid, adjusting to our needs. He is very upbeat and knowledgeable, speaks 7 languages and is very sociable. Even though no food/beverages were included, he bought water, beer, shisha... He will make sure the car is cool when you get back. He will get you to the quiet beach at the Dead Sea. Make sure to carve ample of time out, his stories might take a little longer than you've planned time for! :-)

What people are saying about Dead Sea

Great experience! The dead sea resort spa lunch was fun. It's on your own to utilize the spa services. It's a short walk to a private beach as well as pool access in addition to a buffet style lunch. This is where I spent the most time and there is more flexibility with the private tour (utilize your time to the fullest). There is a lot of culture and history in Jordanz enjoy!

Baptism Site and the Dead Sea both were really special and amazing experience! We really loved it! Our Tour Guide, Anas is a very friendly and professional guide, the best person for this tour! We had enough time for everything that we planned in the schedule. It was a really cool day, and we will never forget it! We can honestly recommend it for everybody!

I just finished my tour and I definitely recommend it to every traveller that wants to discover Jordan. Our driver was amazing and we had a very good time visiting the religious sites and the Dead Sea. It's a unique experience that only Jordan can offer.

Very good tour to the mosaics in Madaba and on Mount Nebu. Swim in the Dead Sea at the 5-star hotel, followed by lunch. We were very satisfied!

Fabulous tour and guide - it was a shame that Qasr el Yahud was closed as it would have been fab to visit!
