Full description
Start the tour by driving north from Jerusalem towards Nazareth, the Galilean childhood home of Jesus. Visit the Church of Annunciation, built to celebrate the announcement by Angel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus, the Son of God. Also make a stop at St Joseph's Church, built where the carpentry workshop of Joseph, father of Jesus, used to be. After this, drive eastwards and ascend Mount Tabor for a magnificent view of the Jezreel Valley. Visit the Church of the Transfiguration, the traditional site of the transfiguration of Jesus. Continue eastwards to the shores of the Sea of Galilee and visit Tabgha, the site of the ‘miracle of the loaves and fish’. Next, pass by the Mount of Beatitudes, where the Sermon on the Mount took place and visit Capernaum, a 2000-year-old Jewish fishing village that was the center of Jesus’ messianic work. Find out how, known as 'his town', Jesus spent a substantial part of his life here – healing the sick, preaching in the synagogue and performing miracles. At the end of the day, return to Jerusalem.

Tour was fine, but I would have appreciated some more to the point information, rather than long biblical stories etc. that are presented at length as hard facts. I don’t mind for a while, but not for the whole day.
