Full description
After pickup from hotels in Tel Aviv, your tour begins with an air-conditioned drive to Nazareth. Hear tales of the city, known as the childhood home of Jesus, and its important role in the Christian faith. See the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary in Christian scripture, and the Church of St Joseph, believed to stand on the site of Joseph’s carpentry workshop. Continue through the village of Kafer Kana, identified as the site where Jesus transformed water into wine, and arrive at the Sea of Galilee, Israel’s largest freshwater lake. Pass the Church of the Multiplication, and explore Capernaum on the shores of the sea. View the ruins of the synagogue that stood where Jesus taught and see the modern church that sits over St. Peter’s house, where Jesus is believed to have stayed.  Pass through the waterfront city of Tiberias and arrive in Yardenit, a sacred baptism site on the Jordan River. Admire this idyllic spot and enjoy beautiful views of Mt. Tabor, known to Christians as the Mount of Transfiguration, before your tour ends back in Tel Aviv.

Très bonne prise en charge dans un bus confortable. Le seul inconvénient était la climatisation qui n'était pas nécessaire durant le voyage. Visite très complète, on a le temps d'apprécier ce que l'on voit. Nous avions demandé un guide qui parle français mais sur la quasi totalité de la visite, notre guide a parlé en anglais. Bien heureusement nous avions quelques bases mais certains détails nous échappaient ce qui est vraiment dommage. Néanmoins je recommande cette activité.

A differenza della prima escursione, quella di oggi è stata eccellente, l'autista dell'autobus Eli e la guida Rafael Saul sono persone bellissime. puntualità nel ritiro mattutino e tutto il percorso e i luoghi che il tour dice di visitare nella sua interezza, è stato rispettato.

Gut geführte Reise von 2 älteren Herren im modernen Kleinbus. Während der Fahrt wurde viel zu umseren Aufenthaltsorten und über das Land erzählt. Der Aufenthalt an den einzelnem Stationen war relativ kurz, aber für uns vollkommend ausreichend. Ganz toll war das Essen (Fischfilet) im St. Peters Restaurant. Salatbuffett, eines von drei Hauptgerichten und Kaffee für nur 80 Schekel. Die beiden Reiseführer haben sich zum Ende der Fahrt sogar noch um ein kostenfreies Taxi für uns bemüht, damit wir wieder von der zentralen Bushaltestelle sicher zu unserer Unterkunft zurück kommen. Sehr empfehlenswert!
