What to expect

Travel on a journey north to discover Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on this full-day guided tour and learn its history through its top sites (and hidden ones too): the Valley of Armageddon, the Mount of Precipitation, Capernaum, city of Tiberias, and many more.

The tour begins traveling past Natanya, then north along the coastal road parallel to the Mediterranean, turning inland and driving through the Valley of Armageddon. You'll hear about the revelations and Megiddo. Learn and admire Nazareth with a visit to the Mount of Precipitation, plus the Church of Annunciation constructed on the spot where Gabriel appeared to Mary and told her she would soon be with child. Next door, you'll find the Church of Saint Joseph built where Jesus' father Joseph had his carpentry. Next, you'll travel past Cana where Jesus turned water into wine, and, at the foot of the Mount of Beatitudes, marvel at Capernaum on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.

Learn about the history of the home of Peter and the Church of the Multiplication. Enjoy being driven along the shore where Jesus calmed the sea and walked on water. Witness, across the water, the Golan Heights forming a backdrop. Admire the city of Tiberias which, was settled more than 2000 years ago and named after the Roman Emperor Tiberias. Feel the atmosphere of where the Jordan River flows into the Sea of Galilee and where Jesus may have been baptized. It is even possible to participate in a baptismal ceremony in the very same river that Jesus did so many years ago. Heading south on the return journey, see Mount Tabor, where the Transfiguration took place to end the day.
