After pickup from your Amman hotel, hop inside your comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle with your private driver. Remember to bring sun cream and a sun hat, plus a towel and bathing suit for the Dead Sea. Then, gaze at Jordans desert landscapes as you travel south to Madaba, the City of Mosaics. On route, your driver will share information about the region, but will not act as your guide at the destinations. Upon arrival, hop out at Madabas St. Georges Church, the basilica that's home to the famous Mosaic Map: a 6th-century floor mosaic depicting the Holy Land and Jordan. Walk around this intricate masterpiece, and admire its rich renderings of Jerusalem, Jericho, the Dead Sea and other biblical sites. Next, continue to Mount Nebo, the hill where the prophet Moses was said to have been granted a view of the Promised Land before he died. Absorb the panoramas over the Jordan Valley from the hillside, which on a clear day, can stretch as far as Jericho and Jerusalem. Then, view the relics and still-vivid 6th-century floor mosaics on show inside Nebo's memorial church. Drive on to the Dead Sea, the salt-rich lake located at 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level, the Earths lowest point. Admire the sparkling, mountain-backed waters, and savor a tasty buffet lunch at the Dead Sea Spa Hotel. Duly refreshed, choose to relax on a public beach or the beach of a Dead Sea hotel (additional cost). Change into your bathing suit and wade into the salty waters, experiencing their famous buoyancy and perhaps striking the classic pose of reading a newspaper as you float. After experiencing the waters and spending time as you wish, reconvene with your driver for your return journey, finishing with a hotel drop-off in Amman.
