I had already been baptized, so I didn't get baptized here (besides, it was VERY COLD!) But several members of our group did so. It was a lovely experience.
WORD TO THE WISE: The site sells baptismal gowns for $8 each. They are THIN and...More
Jordan River, natural border between Israel and Jordan. You can't go there by your car but you have to go to visitor center first. The tour we got from visitor center was fabulous. It is all included in Jordan Pass. The guide was pleasant and...More
Want to see what the place where Jesus was likely baptized? It’s a low key place not packed with tourists like across the river.

Hi there, you can't go down, only from viewing platform and you can not separate from the group and local guide as you are right on border between Jordan and Israel.Jordanian soldiers are there all the time.
