Egypt and Jordan are moderate secular states, well used to hosting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.

Explore the Dead Sea, which is over 400 meters below sea level. The lowest point on the face of the earth, this vast, stretch of water receives a number of incoming rivers, including the River Jordan. Once the waters reach the Dead Sea they are land-locked and have nowhere to go, so they evaporate, leaving behind dense, rich, cocktail of salts and minerals that supply industry, agriculture, and medicine with some of its finest products. We will arrange an entrance to Dead Sea Spa Hotel to have a chance to enjoy the Spa Hotel facilities or float on the Dead Sea salty water.

According to Jewish and Christian tradition, Moses was buried on this mountain by God himself, and his final resting place is unknown. Scholars continue to dispute whether the mountain currently known as Nebo is the same as the mountain referred to in the Torah. Madaba’s most famous site is the Mosaic map in the 19th century Greek Orthodox St George’s Church. Unearthed 1864, the mosaic was once a clear map with 157 captions (in Greek) of all major biblical sites from Lebanon to Egypt. The mosaic was constructed AD 560 & once contained more than 2 million pieces; only 1/3 of the whole now survives.
