Our driver, Amer from Zaid Tours, was the same as the previous day. Because we had the chance to talk with him about our schedule, we were able to fit in additional stops that we wouldn't have known about otherwise. We enjoyed the tour and learning about this historically significant part of Jordan. Swimming in the Dead Sea was really something else! I suggest trying to use the same driver each day if you can. On our final day, rather than just waste time before going to the airport, Amer agreed to pick us up early to see additional sites around Amman that we hadn't planned in advance. His efforts on behalf of Zaid Tours went above and beyond normal expectations.

The private tour was just as described. It was amazing. The driver was at the hotel to pick me up on time and drove me to all the sites mentioned. The Greek Orthodox church in Madaba was really interesting with a lot of history and mosaics. The views from Mount Nebo were really cool and floating in the Dead sea was just incredible.

My driver/ guide Shadi picked me up at 9am from my hotel. Drove by the Citadel and theater on the way to Madaba, then Mount Nebo and the Dead sea. Shadi was a very good driver. Always felt safe. Really enjoyed my visit to Jordan. Thank you Shadi.

You see many bits of the Holy Land on this trip and end up floating in the Dead Sea. Modaba is in particularly lovely Jordanian town so spend some time there!

This was one of the best trips I have ever had. I travelled alone but enjoyed it a lot. Jordan is a great country and Jordanian hospitality is amazing.Before I left I read a lot about Jordan, culture, dress code and habits. I learnt some Arabic phrases and numbers which was much appreciated by Jordanians. I booked 2 trips with Viator and both were great! I saw a breath taking view from the top of Mount Nebo and enjoyed swimming in the Dead Sea. You cannot miss it! This is so much fun. What really made my day, was the driver who was a great companion through the whole tour, very professional, patient answering my questions and with a great attitude towards the tourists. I would definitely recommend this trip to everyone. Remember that apart from Petra, there are other beautiful places in Jordan - the more you see, the better you get to know this country, its people and culture. Shukran thank you in Arabic to Viator and local travel agency.

Very good tour! perfect for half day tour from Amman with sufficient time at the sites in Nebo and Madaba.

Immense history! Madaba was a nice start with the old mosiac map Mount Nebo was peaceful however the place of worship was closed for renovation which was a shame and we felt that they could have done more to celebrate this site Paid extra to see Jesus Baptist site as nearby which was incredible, good local tour guide Floating in the Dead sea was a great experience, highly recommended

A pretty good tour. Madaba and Mount Nebo were worth seeing but swimming in the dead sea was definitely the highlight - even though it was winter.
• Submitted 17 Jan 2014
If you manage to get Shaadi you will have a great day, we were also lucky with the weather that day but unfortunately Red sea was too choppy and windy to fully experience the floating experience. Also note that this is a local beach that they take you too, you will be surrounded by conservative locals, not the time to break out your bikini! The beach is not that great, the Israel side of the Red Sea is much prettier and do not expect to get free mud, you have to buy it! Madaba and Mount Nebo are nice to view the sights of Jordan with a Christian background but that's about it

The tour was well organized. The driver was on time and spoke excellent English. This was a significant benefit for us.

Madaba and Mount Nebo was basic. The Dead Sea was the main attraction. I did not bring my bathing suit to Jordan but at the Dead Sea resort there were many available for a great price. The change lockers are great and very clean....remember to bring flip flops to wear.

The driver picked us up on time. He was most pleasant and helpful. He let us choose how much time we wanted to spend in each location so long as the tour finished by the stated time. Unfortunately the Dead Sea beach club was quite dated and the facilities were poor. The food wasn't appealing either. However, a great tour if you want to see some of Jordan's key sites.
