    After roughly an hour, arrive in Madaba and head inside St George’s Church with a local guide ( Optional ). This 19th-century Greek Orthodox basilica is home to the famous Madaba Mosaic Map, a 6th-century AD floor mosaic that depicts the ancient Holy Land and Jordan.

    Stop At: Mount Nebo, Madaba Jordan

    After roughly an hour, arrive in Madaba and head inside St George’s Church with a local guide (Optional). This 19th-century Greek Orthodox basilica is home to the famous Madaba Mosaic Map, a 6th-century AD floor mosaic that depicts the ancient Holy Land and Jordan. Gaze at this masterpiece and its richly detailed renderings of Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea, and other biblical sites as your guide explains how it was unearthed in 1897.

    Having admired the mosaic, drive to Mt Nebo, and the hill where, according to the bible, Moses was not only granted a view of the Promised Land but also died. Take in the stunning views from the summit that extend over the Jordan Valley, and on a clear day, can stretch as far as Jericho and Jerusalem.

    Meet up with a local guide ( Optional ) and go inside the excavated remains of the Byzantine church that once graced the hilltop. Here, archaeologists have uncovered a series of floor mosaics dating from between the 4th and 6th century AD. Marvel at these intricate artworks with their still-vivid illustrations of peacocks, soldiers, horses, and hunters, as your guide, shares facts about their creation and discovery.

    After your visit, return to your vehicle and make the drive back to Amman. Your tour ends with a drop-off at your Amman hotel.
