Overview

Discover the New Testament sites of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on this day trip from Tel Aviv. In Nazareth, Jesus’ childhood home, explore the Church of the Annunciation and Church of St Joseph. After your Nazareth tour, visit some fabled miracle locations around the Sea of Galilee including the site of the feeding of the 5,000. Visit Capernaum and then pass through Tiberias on route to the Jordan River, with the chance to be baptized in its waters. Nazareth and Galilee tours don’t come much more comprehensive!
  • Full day trip from Tel Aviv to Nazareth, Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee
  • Guided tour of popular Holy Land sights, such as the Church of the Annunciation and Mt. Tabor
  • Optional baptism on the Jordan River
  • Transport by air-conditioned coach
  • Hotel pick-up and drop-off
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.

Great trip! Hotel pick up was on time and took us in a small bus to a big bus - there were 25 of us on the tour and we had a full 52 seater coach - loads of room!! Tour guides were excellent and the trip was very informative. Lunch - you don’t get a choice as you are taken to St Peters restaurant which is a fixed price (around £20 pp). We loved the food...you get a choice of freshly cooked meat and then help yourself to the salad bar which was all fresh and full over flavour!

Highlight of the holiday. The guide was really good giving an thorough explanation of everything, I learnt more on this trip than I did in 5 years at school doing RE ! The Sea of Galilee was a particular highlight especially as we went to Capernaum to see the 4th Century synagogue. Another experience was going to the River Jordan where people were being baptised as we watched, we had quite a bit of time here which was just as well as the scenery was beautiful. The coach was in good order, clean with a good sound system so we could hear the guide clearly. The only tip I would give is to take your own lunch (which we did) as the only place to stop is at St Peters Restaurant on the Sea of Galilee and they charge 80 shekels for lunch per person and there is no other option.

Our guide Alana was really knowledgable and gave just the right amount of information. She had a lovely relaxed personality which made our tour all the more enjoyable. The only thing I wish I could have done extra was to take a boat on the Sea of Galilee instead of lunch but there were no boats where we stopped so I made do with a paddle
