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.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was informative and engaging. He took the time to explain the history behind each stop, and always allowed time for questions. As we rode in our tour bus, he pointed out important sites, and historical facts. The visit to Nazareth allowed for a quick snack, and time to visit some shops, before heading to the Sea of Galilee. Our lunch was delicious, and offered many different options although it was quite pricey...all lunch dishes cost 22 USD, plus beverage and tip. We had the opportunity to be baptized at the Jordan River, which almost turned into a disaster, when we realized we had to bring our own pastor/priest, and we did not have one. We were fortunate to be able to join another group being baptized, but I would caution those wanting to get baptized to come prepared.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to gain a deeper understanding of the life of Jesus. I felt incredibly enlightened by the experience, and getting baptized at the Jordan River made this tour a dream come true!
