All reviews shuttle bus jesus christ souvenir shop spiritual experience holy place every half hour west bank white robes dead sea greek orthodox church thousand years armed guards parking lot both sides few meters actual place muddy water
If you are a Christian you feel very strange to vsit the same place when Jesus was babtized thousand years ago and you feel a spiritual vibe in the air.
Also interesting to see the Jordan river being natural border of two countries.
Interesting place expecially for Christians. Otherwise not very special or interesting for atheists. Place is absolutely free of charge. There is only one medium-price gift shop and free toilets and showers (after babtism in the Jordan river).
We travelled with Bein Harim tours and our guide was Sam / Shmil . He was a fantastic man, approachable, knowledgeable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble, the whole tour was amazing from beginning to end . We think it’s the best tour we’ve...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 be given like 10 minutes if you want to like " baptize " yourself in Jordan river? That's about 5 min walk from original site.
