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.

The guide was really knowledgeable and friendly. I enjoyed visiting the places but the expensive souvenirs shops where they have commissions or the expensive mandatory 80ILS lunch threw me off a bit. I'd recommend this tour to anyone who's short of time but there's smaller companies that seem less factory like.

We wanted to see the places where Jesus were. We had a guide that took us on the road to the New Testament in a fantastic way.

This trip was a great tour and our guide Itimar Buk did a fantastic job. He is quite passionate about his work and ensured he provided as much detail about the history and culture of Israel. This was our first trip in Israel so to start with Jerusalem and Bethlehem was quite exciting. The trip was well organized and we were briefed at the start of the tour as to what to expect and how to best prepare for the day. The trip was well paced and not rushed and the group size appeared to be appropriate as well. Some of the highlights included following the Via Dolorosa through the stations cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Western Wall, walking through the markets in the Muslim quarter and crossing over to Bethlehem. The only opportunity to improve is the actual pick up from the designated hotels. Our voucher indicated pickup for 7:15am and we were picked up at 8am. During this time we were worried that perhaps we were at the wrong location or missed. A bit more clarity on the vouchers would reduce this concern and calls to the tour company. Regardless everything worked out perfectly and we understand earlier times are listed to ensure travellers are on time and there are no delays. Overall this was a great trip with a very knowledgeable guide Itimar who was quite chilled out and with effort even funny at times . Highly recommended.

Amazing!!! I enjoyed my the trip, the Sea of Galilee was spevtacular...the buses were modern and allowed for cell charging, the guide was enthusiastic. The fish at St. Peter’s was delish and the highlight was being Baptized in the Jordan River!

More time spent in shops than visiting sites. Barely stopped in Tiberias, more time in souvenir shop. Sea of Galilee is not worth it and Jordan river stop is like a circus.
