"The Jordan Carriages" also known as "Merkavot Hayarden" are run by Uri Sharet, the wagon-driver. Uri offers a unique experience taking the family members on his carriages, for a magical tour in the beautiful scenery of the Jordan Valley. Uri hands out a song booklet and sings along the family and travellers while seasoning the carriage ride with fascinating stories and historical facts of the Jordan Valley, where he grew up. The trip is suitable for families, also with elder seniors, groups of friends and special occasions. We visited The Jordan Carriages over 3 times now, celebrating a 50 year anniversary for family members (15 participants), a trip with friends and an organized trip from work with over 50 participants in which case, Uri arranges for a few carriages. During the trip, the carriages stop at a fascinating spot at the Jordan river. It is possible to bathe there and Uri offers authentic tea and instructs the young kids how to build tiny rafts and send them down the river. It is also possible to arrange to be served with home made stew which was cooked at the camp fire at the end of the trip. Highly recommended for families, friends, group of people working together and special occasions.
