From Tel Aviv: Nazareth, Galilee & the Sea of Galilee Tour

5. From Tel Aviv: Nazareth, Galilee & the Sea of Galilee Tour

During this tour, you'll visit important holy places for the Christians in the Galilee Mountains where Christ spent most of his life on earth. Drive through the Galilee to visit Nazareth, a relatively small city which is the cradle of Christianity where the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ lived. One of the first stops is the Church of the Annunciation, the traditional site of Mary’s home. Afterwards, head to The St. Joseph Church, built on the location of the carpentry workshop of Joseph, father of Jesus. After leaving Nazareth, make a short stop in Kfar Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle by changing water into wine. Then, continue to the Church at Tabgha, the site of the miracle of the multiplication of loaves and fishes. Take a short walk along the Tabha-Capernaum promenade to 'Mensa Christi', the site of the events described in the Gospels.  It was there that Jesus cooked breakfast for the disciples, the miraculous catching of fish took place, and Peter’s reconciliation. Proceed from Tabgha to Capernaum, a remnant of the once-thriving Jewish community from the 2nd century and where Jesus began his ministry. View the ancient Synagogue and the home of St. Peter. Finally, drive through the city of Tiberias to Yardenit and experience the spirituality and pastoral beauty of the waters of the River Jordan, in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

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.

I love the guide !!! Dan is full of knowledge we had a great and learning experience with him , I can recommend 100/0

Intensive experience but it's a pity that they're no Beatitude nor Primacy Church planned on our way

Super excursion and our guide, Raphi just too nice, funny and with whom we learned a lot!
