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

3. 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.

Unforgettable trip

The trip was 100% what it should be and it was all thanks to the guide- Dan! Well organized, fun and a real encyclopedia of knowledge! Not a single place we visited or just passed by was left without an extensive comment with facts, dates and reading passages from historic documents and the Bible. Highly recommended!

The tour was awesome...especially the guide sivan did great...it was a little bit hassle at the end, because other tourist didn’t settle for the meeting time at the bus... tour very informative..

Our guide Orliv is very knowledgeable. He introduced each place with detailed information. The programme is also well planned. It was indeed enjoyable.
