Get to know the historical treasures of Madaba and Mt Nebo on this day private tour!

Then, visit Mt Nebo, where Moses is said to have surveyed the Promised Land, and admire the views and church mosaics at the summit.
Enjoy a half day tour of the Mount Nebo and Madaba from the Dead Sea. Your private English speaking driver will pick you up at your hotel in the Dead Sea. Situated 10 kilometers west of Madaba, overlooking the Jordan Valley is Mount Nebo, one of the alleged sites of the tomb of Moses. The summit of this lonely windswept site command spectacular views over the Dead Sea to the West Bank and Jerusalem. You can see the springs where Moses smote the ground to bring forth water.Just 20 minutes south of Amman, on the Kings Highway, is the mosaic-filled city of Madaba. Crowned by a small church, this historic town lies in the middle of Jordan's most fertile land. In many respects Madaba is atypical East Bank town which differs in one major aspect: underneath almost every house lies a fine Byzantine mosaic. Many of these mosaics have been excavated and are on display in the town's museum, but it is estimated that many more lie hidden waiting to be discovered. The finest mosaic found to date is still in its original place on the floor of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George.After the tour is done your driver will drive you down 400 meters below the sea level  through mountains till you reach your hotel at the Dead Sea.
