We came to the spot from Israeli side, out of 130 of us, only 15 were brave (or crazy) enough to dip ourselves in a green muddy river. We had to rent white gowns and one by one entered the river while the rest of...More
I really wanted to see this, but the running commentary was a big letdown, as were some of the 'good Christians' that were on the bus. As the area is politically sensitive, you can't just wander around as you like to soak it all in....More
Having visited the Baptismal Site in Israel, it was nice to see something not so commercialized. The spiritual setting on the Jordan side is much more realistic for the Jesus time period. While there we our Baptism and just enjoyed the quiet setting. I noticed...More
On your way to the Dead Sea, which is a well known attraction, don't miss to stop at the Baptism site of Jesus Christ. It is a beautiful place and a walk from the entrance to the river itself takes only 20 minutes. Several churches...More
After more than 30 trips to Jordan and the Dead Sea we finally said let's stop by the Baptism Site on the Jordan River!!
This was a very interesting and very historic tour and we are very happy we took the time and effort to...More
Went along to Baptism site on a cloudy afternoon. It was very interesting and well worth the visit to understand more about the Holy Land. The guide was very knowledgable and spent time explaining the history of the site and area. The tour goes to...More
The Jordan river of your imagination (based on bible stories) may not be what you will see. Certainly left both my wife and I very disappointed and a little saddened. The Jordan river we saw was a dirty little green creek filled with dozens of...More
The price has more than doubled in the last couple of years. We were not given a brochure when we purchased our tickets and had to ask for one when we returned. The site is now a "mill" turning out tourists on-the-double. After waiting for...More
My family and I just visited the site when we were in Jordan a few weeks ago. The site is much improved from what you will read about in many reviews and guidebooks. When you arrive you pay for a ticket to ride the shuttle....More
The trip to the Baptismal Site on the Jordan River is well worthwhile. The site is well-maintained and access from Amman or the Dead Sea resorts is less than 1 1/2 hour by car. There is a guided tour at the site that people are...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.
