What You Can Expect

Nazareth, Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee Day Trip from Tel Aviv

Visit the biblical sites around the Sea of Galilee on this private tour from Tel Aviv

Depart your central Tel Aviv hotel by air-conditioned coach and travel to Nazareth in the Galilee region. On route, hear tales of the city, known as the childhood home of Jesus, and its important role in the Christian faith.

On arrival, visit some of Nazareth’s key religious sites. See the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel is said to have spoken to the Virgin Mary, and see 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 of Cana where Jesus performed the miracle of wine, and arrive at the Sea of Galilee, Israel’s biggest freshwater lake and the setting of many biblical tales.

Pass the Church of the Multiplication, the believed location of the miracle of the feeding of the 5,000, 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 if you wish, take part in a Christian baptism ceremony.

On your return, enjoy beautiful views of Mt Tabor, known to Christians as the Mount of Transfiguration, before your tour ends in Tel Aviv.

Although it was extremely hot in August, I enjoyed this tour. We also went to the Jordan River which was simply serene and beautiful. Our tour guide Yael spoke English, Spanish, and Hebrew. We ate at St Peter and #39;s Restaurant (bring some cash for the food and also for water, especially for water!).

Great guide, great tour. Really efficient and good information. Loved our guide!

Note that the baptism tends to be solo you need to go with a group with a pastor to have someone else do the baptism for you. However, the experience is great!
Also that lunch isn't included!

Our tour guide Amir was like a walking encyclopedia. I took copious notes on the information he provided to us. He helped me develop an appreciation for what we saw but also for the historical context of it.
