About this activity
Start your tour with a pick up from your centrally located Amman hotel. Relax into your private, air-conditioned vehicle with your knowledgeable driver, and travel south to Madaba, known for its exquisite Byzantine mosaics. After roughly an hour, arrive in Madaba and head inside Saint George’s Church with a local guide. This 19th-century Greek Orthodox basilica is home to the famous Madaba Mosaic Map, a 6th-century A.D. floor mosaic that depicts the ancient Holy Land and Jordan. Gaze at this masterpiece and its richly detailed renderings of Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea and other biblical sites as your guide explains how it was unearthed in 1897. Having admired the mosaic, drive to Mount Nebo, the hill where, according to the bible, Moses was not only granted a view of the Promised Land but also died. Take in the stunning views from the summit that extend over the Jordan Valley, and on a clear day, can stretch as far as Jericho and Jerusalem. Meet up with a local guide and go inside the excavated remains of the Byzantine church that once graced the hilltop. Here, archaeologists have uncovered a series of floor mosaics dating from between the 4th and 6th century A.D. Marvel at these intricate artworks with their still-vivid illustrations of peacocks, soldiers, horses and hunters, as your guide shares facts about their creation and discovery. After your visit of this marvelous Franciscan Monastery of Mount Nebo, return to your vehicle and make the drive back to Amman. Your tour ends with a drop off at your Amman hotel.

Mr Jebreen took my son to this site and my 15 year old son love it. What surprised my son was that he met his cousin from California upon arriving Mt. Nebo. I skipped this tour because I was not feeling well, but Mr. Bassam Jebreen really took care of my 15 year old son and my returned to our hotel with a big smile on his face.

Seeing Madaba and Mount Nebo was good but brief. The tour didn't represent good value for money. It was easily do-able from Amman by taxi, which would have cost a lot less.

Our driver was not the best tour guide, but Mount Nebo was definitely worth a stop, especially if you are thrilled, as I am, by the religious significance of its being where Moses first saw the promised land. Madaba was a bit of a yawn.
