Full description

Enjoy a day exploring some of the most significant holy sites in Israel on an excursion by bus from Jerusalem. The guided tour sets out from the city early in the morning and drives along the scenic coast via Tel Aviv and the plain of Armageddon to Nazareth.

Arrive in Nazareth and visit St. Joseph’s Church and the Church of the Annunciation. The largest Roman Catholic church in the Middle East, the Church of the Annunciation is, according to tradition, the scene of the annunciation of the Virgin Mary. 

Continue onwards via Kafr Kanna to view the Mount of Beatitudes and Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish at Tabgha. Set on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, you will stop to view the sea, and continue to the nearby ruins of the ancient synagogue of Capernaum.

Visit Tiberias on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, considered one of the 4 Holy Cities of Judaism, along with Jerusalem, Hebron, and Safed. Drive to the Jordan River at Yardenit, where guests are invited to receive an optional baptismal service.

Return to Jerusalem via a scenic route that takes in views of Mt. Tabor, the site of the transfiguration.

We enjoyed our trip to Nazareth and sea of Galilee, this is a must do tour if you want a full day tour option. We were lucky with our tour guide Dan Porges, he knows very well everything about Israel history, culture and religion. We came back home with a better understanding of Israel, thanks to Dan, Highly recommended

It was a wonderful experience. The Team - Mr. Johny is very passionate, funny and knowledgeable. Shared every little detail of the history. Mr. Ziyad - driver is such a loving and trustworthy man. Bought the tourists bananas on the way back making sure we are all Ok. He contacted us after the tour despite of his busy schedule to give back the item we left inside the van. Overall it was a great experience, we even went home with lots of souvenir gifts from them. This tour is highly recommended, worth the money and the team will make you feel safe.
