    The magic places this country has to offer and our driver Khalil made this experience unforgettable. Khalil is a fantastic guide and he was always ready to help us with anything. He would show us the nicest spots for pictures and take us to the best places to eat at. He even surprised us with ice cream and drinks after a long visit at Petra. I was traveling with two friends and in just two days we managed to go on a hike around Petra, drove to Wadi Rum desert and rode 4WD and camels. We slept in bedouin camp and gazed at the shooting starts and at the sunrise the morning after. Took a dive in the Red Sea’s waters at Aqaba and had so much fun getting coated with the Dead Sea’s muds. This tour is a convenient way to explore the most significant places in Jordan if you only have a limited time to spend there. Although it is pretty comprehensive, be ready to pay extra if you would like to have guides and additional activities during your stops. Looking forward to visiting again!

  • Dead Sea Chill Out Day Trip from Jerusalem

    8. 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.

This tour was a convenient and enjoyable way to see the Dead Sea and religious sites. My driver Khalil particularly made the experience great. As a solo female traveler who took this tour alone, he made me feel comfortable and welcomed to Jordan and treated me like his daughter. Khalil was happy to share his culture with me and teach me about Jordan. He took every opportunity to provide for me, including getting me food and water, stopping for photos, and not rushing me during activities. Khalil also helped me with two problems: I lost my sunglasses in his car, and a faulty ATM machine “ate” my card. Khalil met me the following day to return my sunglasses, and he called the bank for me to try to retrieve the card. Though it was unfortunately not able to be returned, I really appreciated his help with the issue, since I could not call in English. I am grateful to Khalil for everything he did to make my time in Jordan special. I feel that I have made a good friend here!

Tour was detailed. Access to the Dead Sea was through the Hotel Holiday Inn on the Dead Sea. The cost is 21 JOD without food and 28 JOD with food. Another tour was to the Jordan River with the group. The cost was at 12 JOD. Churches and ruins were also included in the sightseeing tour. Costs ex. at 3 JOD. Everyone else was okay.

An amazing tour. it covers the most important sites of the southern Jordan. our driver Murad was a great guide and person overall. he gave us both safe and guidance.

It was amazing! wonderful Petra, breathtaking Wadi Rum, relaxing time at Dead Sea in combination with an excellent guide/driver = I can only recimmend it.
