  • Experience the locations significant to Jesus’ life and ministry around the Galilee region
  • Visit the Church of the Annunciation and Church of St. Joseph in Nazareth

Begin with a morning pickup from your hotel in Jerusalem, and settle inside your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle. Then, gaze out over Israel’s central plains as you travel northward to Nazareth and the lush countryside of the Galilee region, set around the Sea of Galilee, the site of Jesus’ ministry.

On route, pass the Plain of Megiddo, cited by the bible as the location where the ‘Last Battle’ or ‘Armageddon’ will be fought. Then, arrive in Nazareth, the town where Jesus spent his childhood, and visit the beautiful Church of Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel is said to have spoken to the Virgin Mary. Afterward, call at the nearby Church of St Joseph, believed to stand on the site of Joseph’s carpentry workshop.

Continue east and drive up Mount Tabor to enjoy sweeping views of the Jezreel Valley and see the Church of the Transfiguration, traditionally held to mark the site of Jesus’ transfiguration, when he spoke to the prophets Moses and Elijah.

Having explored here, travel onward to the shores of the Sea of Galilee. Drink in the biblical views over the lake where Jesus is said to have walked on water, and visit Tabgha, the site of the miraculous feeding of the 5,000.

Pass the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus gave the Sermon on the Mount, and visit Capernaum, the ancient fishing village that was the center of his activities in Galilee.

Here, wander around the well-preserved ruins of the 4th-century synagogue that stands over the synagogue where Jesus is said to have taught, and see the remnants of what’s believed to be the home of disciple Peter.

Finally, relax on your return drive, ending your tour with a drop-off at your Jerusalem hotel.

I wont give this tour a 5 rating only because I didnt realize that wed be spending our time visiting a lot of Catholic churches that were built on top of historical sites. For some people thats exactly what they want but I didnt come to Israel to visit Catholic churches so maybe that should be made a little more clear in the tour information. Unfortunately Ive discovered that many of the tours are like that. Also, I would have also liked to have had a few moments in some of the more significant sites just to reflect a little bit on that significance but time constraints didnt allow for it. Beyond those two things our guide was excellent and had a wealth of knowledge and experience. I learned a great deal about the history of the various areas we visited. Overall it was a very good tour.

Our guide Ido was both friendly and knowledgeable. He also needed to talk in Spanish as well as English as one couple was from Colombia. We mentioned the areas we were interested in and he organised the tour to meet our needs. Having a smaller tour vehicle allowed us to drive to the top of Mt Tabor making it easier. Driving to Nazareth Ido was able to give us first hand knowledge as his parents came from near the Jordan river. Stopping for lunch at the Abu Khaled restaurant was a pleasant surprise as the food was delicious and keenly priced. The local attractions of the church of annunciation and Joseph the carpenter were interesting. Driving to the Galilee was special as visiting Tagbha and Capernaum the highlight. Peters house was facinating and we could stroll beside the sea of Galilee. The trip home to Tel Aviv was lengthy due to traffic issues but Ido was up to the job.
We would definately recommend this trip to others.

While this was a very good tour and our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of the tour group members, the number of places to visit was rather ambitious for the amount of time available and size of the geographic area to be covered. We would give the guide five stars for what we learned from him, we kept the overall tour rating at four stars because of there being so much to see in just one day.
