Our driver picked us up promptly at our hotel in Amman and drove us to Madaba, where we visited a beautiful church with ancient mosaics. Then we proceeded (optionally) to a "mosaic school" where we briefly watched students creating mosaics and pottery. We were offered tea or coffee. Then we were able to purchase items if we chose. We were told that proceeds benefited charitable causes. Next we were driven to Mount Nebo. Lots of history there. It was hazy in the afternoon so we did not see the "Promised Land" but the site was clean and well kept. There is a modern church there in which Mass was being held so we were respectfully quiet. There are ancient mosaics laid out on the floor of the church. Bear in mind that this tour was for transportation only. At both Madaba and Nebo there are opportunities to hire guides for a small fee. Having ridden in taxis and with other drivers in and around Amman we felt safe in the vehicle with our very courteous driver. Buy the Jordan Wanderer Pass!
Mosaics are beautiful and they worth a visit. Problem is that the activity description says entrance fees are included when they are not. It was no more than 10 JOD in total but are not Jordan Pass included.
Enjoyed this trip . Due to the Covid . Those 2 places are empty but only by myself . I took lots of nice pictures. The tour guide Nasif is a very nice man . Very patient and experienced.
