Tour Details

This land is associated with many Old Testament events: the exodus of the Jewish people from Egypt, the death of Moses, the war of David against the Moabites.
Next, we will visit the last resting place of the prophet Moses – Mount Nebo, and we will have lunch at the lowest point of the globe – the Dead Sea. After lunch, we will have a couple of hours to swim in the salty sea, smear ourselves with healing mud, sunbathe and just feel all the delights of this unique place.

Itinerary

8.00 AMPick up from hotel

We will start with a drive to the ancient town of Madaba Town, an ancient town famous for the Byzantine mosaic art. St. George Church will be the highlight of our trip, housing the mosaic map of the Holy Land, dating back to the 6th century. With about two million pieces of local, colored stones, the map depicts the hills, valleys, villages, and towns of Palestine and Nile Delta.

 

09:30 AMMadaba

We will start the day by visiting the main symbol of Madaba – St. George Church, to admire its striking mosaic map of Jerusalem and other holy sites. The map consists of two million pieces of colored stone & illustrates hills, valleys, villages, and cities all the way to the Nile Delta. It served as a guide to the routes of the Holy Land. To date, 157 objects are recorded on the map. The main part of the map is the Holy City of Jerusalem, the image of which coincides with the old part of today’s city.
One of the main images on the map is the Baptismal Site on the Jordan River, opposite Jericho.

11.00 AMMount Nebo

Next, we go to the most revered and visited shrine of Jordan – Mount Nebo.
From here, according to the Holy Scriptures, Prophet Moses, after 40 years of wandering through the Middle Eastern deserts with his people, first saw the Promised Land.
A glance thrown from a mountain peak will reveal the panorama that Moses once observed: the majestic Jordan Valley, the rocks overgrown with salt crystals on the coast of the Dead Sea, the famous Jericho and ancient Jerusalem.
Mount Nebo, which is part of the Holy Land, saw the first Christians who made pilgrimages here.
At the end of the 4th century, the first church was built on top of the mountain to mark the resting place of the prophet Moses.

2:00 PMDead Sea

On the 4th day, you will hike through the Dana nature reserve, a system of valleys and mountains that descends from an altitude of 1,600 meters above sea level down to the Arabia Valley desert.
The reserve is in two main biogeographic zones and in four vegetation zones.
A variety of amazing landscapes open to the eyes of travelers – only here you can simultaneously see forested alpine, rocky slopes and golden sands dunes. Nature is represented in all its diversity, here you can see quite rare plant species. About seven hundred species of plants are registered in the reserve, and 285 species of animals are waiting for their turn to be studied by scientists. The discovery of 45 endangered animal species at Dana Reserve made it a place of world importance.
However, not only the wildlife attracts the reserve. This part of Jordan is also famous for its archaeological and cultural sites. About 100 archaeological discoveries were made here, including the ancient coal mines of Wadi Feynan, considered one of the most important monuments in Jordan, discovered during excavations outside Petra, were presented to the world.
Our next stop is the splendid landscape of Little Petra and Siq Al Barid, a modest gorge that leads into the famous area of carved tombs and monuments.
Finally, we will have a short ride to your Petra hotel to spend the night.

5.00 PMBack to Amman

Finally, you will be transferred to your hotel or residence at Amman.

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.
