Full description

Discover religious sights from the New Testament on this guided day trip from Jerusalem. Travel by air-conditioned coach to sights like the Church of the Annunciation, the Church of St Joseph, the village of Kafer Kana, and the Yardenit baptism.

Depart from your hotel in central Jerusalem and travel to Nazareth by air-conditioned bus. Listen to stories about the city, known as the birthplace of Mary and the childhood home of Jesus, and learn about its importance in Christianity. Upon arrival, visit some of Nazareth’s key religious sites. Discover the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary. See the Church of St Joseph, believed to stand on the site of Joseph’s carpentry workshop.

Continue through the village of Kafer Kana, the site where Jesus performed the miracle of turning water into wine, and arrive at the Sea of Galilee. Pass the Church of the Multiplication and explore Capernaum, before continuing to the ruined synagogue where Jesus taught.

See the modern church built over St Peter’s house, and pass through Tiberias to arrive at the Yardenit baptism site on the Jordan River. On the return journey, enjoy beautiful views of Mount Tabor, before your tour ends back at your hotel.

It was good to have known such fascinating places, but on the Jordan River they gave us 40 minutes and there were people on the bus who were going to baptize, because it was a unique experience, there should be more time because it is a special place for Christians.

Very good excursion. The great guide. The only problem is that they drop you off at a restaurant with nothing next to it (85ILS pp). And the food... bad... so it's better to take something from the supermarket and wait downstairs for there to be tables in the garden overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

We had a great time seeing all the sights. Our guide was very knowledgeable. However we did have a problem with pick up (over an hour late) and drop off. We were dropped off in the center of Jerusalem and told a cab would be by in a few minutes to pick us up. It never came so after 30 minutes we hailed our own cab. We were given a small discount on our next tour though, to make up for the price of the cab.
