It was fascinating from the start. So you drive to a location and park your car, buy your tickets and get into an old small bus/van from the 70s with other tourists. Then you get driven to this location, its a proper guided tour with...More

I lived in Israel for some 13 years and never went to this site. It is amazing. The Jordan River here just a few meters wide, is the border between Israel and Jordan, right through its middle. It is way less commercialized than the Yardenit...More
