Nazareth, Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee Day Trip from Jerusalem

Visit the famous Sea of Galilee on this private day trip from Jerusalem

This full-day (12 hours) tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Then it’s a 2-hour drive to the city of Nazareth, the capital and largest city in the Northern District of Israel, also known as 'the Arab capital of Israel.' In the New Testament, Nazareth is described as the home of Mary and the childhood home of Jesus. As a result, it’s a center of Christian pilgrimage, with many shrines commemorating biblical events here.

On this tour, visit the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus and the Church of St Joseph, built over the carpentry workshop of Mary’s husband, Joseph.

Further north, pass by the Church of the Multiplication next to the Sea of Galilee. This is where the miracle of the five loaves and two fish took place in the Gospel of John. Walk along the shores of the Sea of Galilee and visit the village of Capernaum, where Jesus spent time teaching in the local synagogue. It was also the hometown of the apostles Peter, James, Andrew and John.

Finally, travel to the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, where the Jordan River meets the Dead Sea in Tiberias. This is where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Consider being baptized here as part of this tour.

The sightseeing concludes at this point. Then, board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels, passing Mount Tabor, believed by many Christians to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus, on the return trip.

This tour was very very long but so worth it. It began at 5:30 am and we were dropped back at our hotel around 7 pm. Our guide was knowledgeable and everything ran smoothly. Viator, this tour was worth every cent.

Highly recommended trip. Everything was very well organized and our guide was nice and knowledgeable. We have discovered a lot of other amazing places in addition to those advertised in the description. It would be nice however, to check with the tourists upfront whether they wish to spend time shopping in Nazareth on such a rich, insightful tour.

My brain is still catching up to what all was presented. You have to see this part to understand the gospels in the natural state.
