Yardenit, Tiberias Reviews
The New Testament may also have two places to baptize Jesus by John. One near the Sea of Galilee and the other near Jericho. The place near the Sea of Galilee is very beautiful and tidy. It is located at the outlet of the Jordan River from the sea of Galilee. The Jordan river here is very wide and beautiful and clean with eucalyptus trees. You may buy special white dress with them you descend into the water and yiu may pass the baptismal ceremony. There are clean and orderly dressing rooms and there is a great souvenir shop at good prices and a kiosk for coffee and ice cream. recommended.
Nice area at the Jordan River. The nature here is really beautiful and seems to be part of a jungle in South America (and not in Israel). There is the is the possibility to have a bath/baptism in the river which is frequently used. There are showers as well which might be useful in cold days. The entrance is foe free and the is a large merchandise shop.
If you like to see a shallow river with nice scenery surrounding it you might but other then that just leave it. It has a very touristic atmosphere. You'll be guided through a large store when leaving and all that is just for the money.
Beautiful site. Large gift shop. Restrooms cost money if you dont do a baptism there...love the atmosphere and the surroundings. Very calming, even when there are lots of people there
Beautiful experience. Clean and well organized. I will never forget being baptised in the Jordan River. Be advised there is no clergy on duty. If you want to be baptised you have to find someone willing to do it. There are usually plenty of clergy with tour groups, but you have to ask.
