We have rented a car from one of Dead Sea Hotels and drove for 15 min to the entrance of Baptism Site where you have to leave your car, pay the entrance and join a small group of tourist (8 total!) on a mini bus...More
The site and its history are undoubtedly interesting, but as a touristic experience it leaves a lot to be desired.
We were planning to stop here for an hour on the way through. This would be enough time to see the main sights, but because...More
Interesting enough, if you happen to be nearby. Entrance is JD12 for foreigners, for a (dis)organized tour, which leaves every 30-60 minutes if there are enough people. JD20 extra if you want a golf cart to drive you around. There are a number of churches,...More
This is a 'must see' for those touring Jordan's religious sites!
At the site's parking lot, the wait for the bus, which takes tour groups to the Baptismal Site, was about 30 minutes or so. The tour of the Baptismal Site, the River Jordan and...More
The entrance fee is 10jd for Jordanian and 15 for foreigners. It gives you the entrance, a ride by bus to the site and a guide that speaks reasonable English. Once you get there you have to walk for about 30-40 minutes in about 35-40...More
The baptismal site, where tradition says Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, lies on the eastern bank of the Jordan River. The site is disputed between Jordan and Israel, which has traditionally had it's own baptismal site for many years. Known as the Maghtas,...More
We took ticket along with Jordan Pass. From Parking Bus took us to Site. There was guide who took us all location and explained the details. We saw the place with historic significance, church ruins, river side.
The visit to the (supposed) baptismal site of Jesus was well organised, albeit quite touristic. The guide spoke English well and we got to stop for a while by the Jordan river. I think the tour took about an hour, or a bit more. You...More
Firstly, I am not religious, but some of my friends are (ones a priest) and I went there to get some souvenirs for them.
I was very impressed.
There is a good gift shop at the start, bus with good aircon to take you to...More
Not sure about the Israel side. From Jordan side, no bus. You can take a taxi to the site, but you will have to ask your taxi to wait for you. Due to tight security around the area, you don't see many taxis to hail there. I... More
Not sure about the Israel side. From Jordan side, no bus. You can take a taxi to the site, but you will have to ask your taxi to wait for you. Due to tight security around the area, you don't see many taxis to hail there. I hired a driver (recommended by my hotel) who charged me a flat rate to drive me to the baptism site and back to the hotel.
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. However you will... More
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. However you will be given like 10 minutes if you want to like " baptize " yourself in Jordan river? That's about 5 min walk from original site.
