“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Mount Nebo is currently undergoing construction, but definitely worth a stop. The 6th century Mosaics on display were a special surprise, as we were expecting simply to look out on Palestine to the west. What a lovely view that was! It's pretty moving to stand where Moses once stood (if the Biblical stories are accurate). In any case, if you find yourself in Jordan, Mount Nebo is definitely worth a visit.

“See what the prophet Moses/Nebo saw - 'the Promised Land'!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

From a religious or history point - it is amazing to see what Moses saw! Great view from the mountain off the Promised Land that Moses never entered! Ask your guide/driver to point out (just to the right before you enter the site) one of the rocks that Moses hit to reveal water.
Cant find it on TA, but nearby is Bethany where John the Baptist baptised Jesus.
You can easily visit Mount Nebo, Bethany, Dead Sea as a day trip from Madaba

“The Promised Land”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The mount from where Moses saw the Promised Land. On a clear day you can see Jerusalem from here. JD 1 is the entry and you can have a tour of the Museum, Stand on top of Mt. Nebo, the olive tree planted by the pope. And then carry on to Jordan River.

“A good view at a historical place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

It's very nice to realize that you're at a biblical place. It also has a very nice view towards other biblical places.

Once you're parked, it's a short walk uphill, where you can see some displays about the aerchaelogy.

“A pity the church was closed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Excellent views over the Promised Land. Mosaics very interesting, just a pity we couldn't see the ones in the church.
