Full description
Set off on a whirlwind full day tour of the most famous sights in the historic Jordanian Holy Land. After being picked up from your accommodation, head to the ancient city of Madaba which is renowned for its colorful Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics. Visit St. George's Greek Orthodox Church and view the important floor mosaic, an early Christian treasure that today stands as the oldest map of Palestine and offers many historical insights into the area. 

Continue on to Mt. Nebo, recorded in the Bible as the site where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land. Enjoy a stunning panoramic vista of the valley of the River Jordan, Jericho, and, on clear days, Jerusalem. Check out the remains of a Byzantine church and monastery located on Syagha, the highest point of the mountain.

Visit another site of Biblical significance with a stop at Al-Maghtas or "Bethany Beyond the Jordan," the place on the east bank of the Jordan River where John the Baptist is said to have baptized Jesus. Explore two significant archaeological sites which include hermit dwellings, baptism ponds, and the remnants of churches and monasteries. 

End your day of exploring with a refreshing swim in the Dead Sea. Float effortlessly in dense salty waters while taking in views of the valley of the Jordan River, Israel, and the West Bank.
