Tour Details

We will go to the Jordan River, to the biblical “Bethany Beyond Jordan”, where Jesus Christ was baptized, the place where his ministry began.
Today every pilgrim in the Holy Land seeks to plunge into the holy water of Jordan and gain a sense of belonging to the Savior. In this place the prophet Elijah crossed the Jordan River from where the Holy Mary of Egypt went beyond the Jordan.
Then we will drive to the biblical Mount Nebo, rising over the Dead Sea, the Jordan Valley, Jericho and the Jerusalem Hills, from where Prophet Moses saw the Promised Land. We will see the places that the prophet himself saw and visit the place of his supposed burial. The skillfully executed beautiful ancient Byzantine mosaics, as well as the huge stone that served as the entrance to the monastery, and the basilica with the chapel of the Virgin, evoke special tender feelings.
The last point of our today’s tour is Madaba, the first mention of which dates back to the Bronze Age. The Bible mentions Madaba more than once as the Moabite border town. During the existence of the empires of Rome and Byzantium, the city was part of the province of Arabia, which was created by the Roman emperor Trajan.
The presence of a Christian community with its own bishop was first documented in the 5th century.
In the year 846 in Madaba, there was a powerful earthquake with dire consequences. Many residents died under the ruins of their homes, and the city itself was almost completely destroyed. “So! by night Ar-Moab will be ravaged and destroyed; So! at night Kir-Moab will be ravaged and destroyed! ” (Isaiah 15:1)
Only in the 80s of the 19th century, local Christians managed to clear the remaining ruins and build a new city on the site of the rubble. The first settlers were Arab peoples, mostly Christians. Currently, Madaba and its surroundings are inhabited by Both Christians and Muslims.
We conclude our eventful day with a return to your place of residence at the Dead Sea.

What to expect

  • It is essential that you read our booking conditions we sent to you by email and can be checked online. The booking conditions are an important part of the contract for your holiday. They set rules, guidelines and conditions in which we work with you and determine payment and cancellation policy. When you book with us we assume the booking conditions are read, understood and agreed.

  • Travel insurance is highly recommended for all travelers. At a minimum your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation as all deposits paid are non-refundable, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Go Aqaba Travel does not offer travel insurances.

  • At the airport our representative waits for you with a Go Aqaba Travel sign after you passed through the customs. At the Arava Border in the south we will meet you inside the Jordan border terminal, at Allenby Bridge and Sheikh Hussein Border outside the Jordan border terminal.

  • Most nationals obtain the Jordanian Visa at Amman Airport and the land borders upon arrival. Except for arrivals through the Allenby Bridge/King Hussein Bridge where all nationals need the visa in advance. The visa fee upon arrival is 20 Jordanian Dinar per person and has to be paid in cash; an exchange booth is available. Your passport has to be valid minimum 6 month while traveling in Jordan. If you are not sure about your visa status contact us or the Jordanian embassy in your country of residence.

  • The official currency is the Jordanian Dinar (JD), which is divided into 100 piastres or 1,000 fils. Notes are in denominations of JD 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1. It is easy to change foreign currency at banks, moneychanger or better hotels, most accepted are USD, GBP and Euros. Banks are closed on Fridays and Saturdays. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are the most widely accepted credit cards. ATMs are available in larger towns and at the airport. The maximum daily withdrawal amount is around JD 500, depending on your particular card. Check with your bank for information on ATM international fees. We recommend that you carry some cash in case ATMs can not be accessed, are broken down or run out of cash.

  • It is necessary to mention that Jordan is not a cheap destination. But as every traveller is different, please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, food and shopping. The costs for lunch and dinner vary. If you are happy with a sandwich or a shawarma at local restaurant or take away, this is already available for 3-4 USD per person (without drinks), but better restaurants charge 16-20 USD per meal/per person (no drinks), same at 4 star hotels for main buffet 20-30 USD per meal/per person. A large bottle of water in the local market is 70 Cent, a soft drink (0.30l) is 40 Cent, in tourist areas the rates are higher.

  • Jordan is characterized by a Mediterranean climate and the best travel time is spring and autumn, March until May, September until November. Summer is hot and sunny, especially in Aqaba and at the Dead Sea. These two areas are in turn ideal for a winter break due to the mild temperatures (16-22 °C) in this season. In the rest of the country winter weather can be cool, with rain and occasional snow. Jordan is a very sunny country with average daily sunshine hours ranging from six to seven in winter and twelve to thirteen in summer. Although summer temperatures are high, the nights are rather cool.
