  • Nazareth & Capernaum: Small-Group Tour from Jerusalem

    6. Nazareth & Capernaum: Small-Group Tour from Jerusalem

    Your first stop on this day of holy discovery is in Nazareth where you will witness the beautiful Church of Annunciation, built on the site where the angel Gabriel appeared before Mary. Adjoining it is the Church of St. Joseph, recalling the carpentry where Jesus and Joseph worked. As your group leaves Nazareth for Kinneret, the Sea of Galilee, you will pass Cana, the site of the first wonder performed by Jesus where he turned water into wine. On the sea front, at the foot of Mount Beatitude, you will have the opportunity to visit both Capernaum, home of Peter, and the Benedictine Church commemorating the miracle of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish. Whilst you continue along the shores of the Sea of Galilee, you will recall how Jesus calmed the stormy waters and walked on them at this very site.

    This really packed a lot into one day. Like many places in Israel, the sites were churches built on the site where something is said to have happened (e.g., the annunciation, Joseph's carpenter shop, the miracle of the loaves and fishes). So it was visiting a lot of churches (4 if I remember right). We stopped for lunch at a packed restaurant with a parking lot full of tour busses. The Jordan River site was equally packed. A positive was the beautiful scenery driving by the Sea of Galilee. Also, the tour was very well run and organized. Just know that there are a lot of crowds (not the tour group's fault) and mostly visiting churches.

Well-guided trip by 2 older men in a modern minibus. During the trip a lot was told about our whereabouts and about the country. The stay at the individual stations was relatively short, but it was perfectly sufficient for us. The food (fish fillet) in the St. Peters restaurant was really great. Salad buffet, one of three main dishes and coffee for only 80 shekels. At the end of the trip, the two tour guides even tried to get us a free taxi so that we could safely get back to our accommodation from the central bus stop. Highly recommended!

I was picked up sharp on time, all was organised beautifully and out driver / tour guide was very kind and informative.
