What To Expect

The Nazareth, Tiberias and Sea of Galilee (Kinneret) tour begins with a scenic drive north along the Mediterranean coast past Herzliya and Netanya. The tour turns inland to the Valley of Armageddon where we see Megiddo in the distance. Before reaching Nazareth we stop at the Mount of Precipitation. The Book of Luke tells us how an angry crowd tried to throw Jesus off this mount. In Nazareth we tour the beautiful Church of Annunciation built on the site where the Angel Gabriel told Mary of her future son. The tour continues to the adjacent Church of St. Joseph were the Holy Family lived and where Joseph had his carpentry workshop. Leaving Nazareth the Christian Galilee tour continues through the idyllic countryside to the Sea of Galilee.
We pass by Cana the site where Jesus turned water into wine. We see the Mt. of Beatitudes where Christ gave his Sermon on the Mount. The tour stops in Capernaum where Jesus based himself during his ministry in the Galilee. In Capernaum, we will see the Church built over the excavated home of St. Peter and in the nearby village of Tabgha - the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes.
The tour takes you along the shore of the Kinneret where Jesus walked on water and calmed the Sea. It was on these shores that Jesus performed most of his miracles. We can enjoy the view of the Sea surrounded by green farmlands with the majestic Golan Heights rising up on the opposite shore. We pass Tiberias, the largest settlement on the shores of the beautiful Sea of Galilee dating back more than 2,000 years. The tour stops where the Jordan River meets the Sea of Galilee. It was here that Jesus may have been baptized by John. On this tour, it is possible for visitors to also be baptized here in the Jordan River. After a thrilling day filled with Christian sites in the Galilee, we return south past Mt. Tabor site of the Transfiguration.
