Bethlehem, Jordan River and Dead Sea From Jerusalem – 140$

Tour’s Program


From Jerusalem we take a nearby trip to Bethlehem, the place where Jesus Christ was born.
Our journey takes us to Manger Square which is surrounded by the Mosque of Omar, the Palestinian Peace center the church of Church of Nativity of which some may recognize as the oldest functioning church in the world. The Church of Nativity was built in the 4th century and was extended during 6th century. Some of the original mazaic flooring exists today.
Entering the Basilica of the Nativity we go creep through a low doorway called the “door of Humility”. On the walls we can see golden mosaics with 30 of the 44 pink limestone columns of the nave of the church which were embellished with decorations by the Crusaders. Below the church there is a grotto which has an engraving in latin stating “Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary.” You will also find in the church a chapel of the manger and the altar of the Adoration of the Magi. (The three Wise men).
Leaving the church past the Armennian Chapel of the Kings we proceed towards the Church of St Catherine, and enter the Church of Nativity. Here, inside and down below are grottoes(caves), where we will observe several tombs and chapels in dedication to the babies killed under Herod. (Mathew. 2:16)

Next on our journey is a visit to where Jesus is known to be baptised. The castle of the Jews or Qasr el Yahud is on the river Jordan not far from Jericho. The very same place is also a well known location where the Israelites crossed the river Jordan into the promised land and where the prophet Elijah ascended to Heaven. An opportunity to be baptised in this river is available.

Our final destination is to the Dead Sea, where we take a trip to one of the best Dead Sea beaches to relax and float in its high saline waters, or give yourself a mad bath by covering your body with the Dead Sea’s black mineral rich sea mud, giving yourself a natural health and beauty treatment. Our day ends with a return to the pick up point.

    The Dead Sea is a natural wonder and has many therapeutic qualities but it also can be dangerous. For preserving your safety and wellbeing we recommend you read following instructions carefully:
    1. When entering the sea it is recommended to do as very slowly as the ground mud is very slippery and one tends to sink in .Be cautious not to splash when swimming as the sea is highly salty. If the water gets in your eyes, get out carefully and wash your eyes with fresh water as soon as you can.
    2. Do not swallow the water.
    3. It is recommended to be in the water no longer than 20 minutes; the same can be said about the Mud. (You can smear the mineral rich mud from the sea ground all over your body, including your face).Once it dries, wash it off thoroughly.
    4. Thereafter proceed to wash yourself in the fresh water showers nearby off the shore.
    5. Regarding jewelries or any precious item (watches pendants earrings etc) – if you are not sure your jewelry is pure gold, it is recommended to remove it before entering the water as the High salt content can ruin other metals and fine mechanisms.
    6. The shore we visit is well facilitated with Hot & Cold showers, safety lockers (for a deposit) and changing rooms. As well as life guard presence and first aid.
    7. You should not go barefooted at all times: Sandals or thongs are required, the sand/ ground surface is extremely hot especially in the summer season, and there is considerable walking until the shore edge.
    8. June-September, extreme temperature (above 40 Celsius), take precautions accordingly (hat, sunscreen, water).
