From Amman 5-Hour Dead Sea Experience with Lunch and Return

5. From Amman 5-Hour Dead Sea Experience with Lunch and Return

The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water itself – some ten times saltier than sea water, and rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others. The unusually warm, incredibly buoyant and mineral-rich waters have attracted visitors since ancient times, including King Herod the Great and the beautiful Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra. All of whom have luxuriated in the Dead Sea’s rich, black, stimulating mud and floated effortlessly on their backs while soaking up the water's healthy minerals along with the gently diffused rays of the Jordanian sun.

Our guide was prompt and on time. He gave us a lot of very helpful advice and information throughout the day. The ride was comfortable and fun, and we were well taken care of throughout every aspect of the tour. He helped us save money on souvenirs and took us to an authentic shop with Dead Sea products and reasonable prices, and stopped on the way home for lunch. We would recommend him and this tour again for sure!

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!
