What To Expect - Galilee Tour from Haifa Port

Our tour begins at Haifa port where, after meeting your private guide, drive through Galilee stopping to take in views of the Jezreel Valley. Explore Nazareth, the capital of Northern Israel and the city where Jesus spent his formative years. Visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, the spot at which the Angel Gabriel appeared before Mary and announced that she was with child, and, next door, the Church of St. Joseph, the site at which it is believed Jesus’s father had his carpentry shop.

Stop for a photo opportunity at Mary’s Well (the ‘Virgin Fountain’) whose waters are believed to have magical powers, before wandering in the bustling old shuk (market), a wonderful place to purchase dark coffee, locally-made sweet treats, and souvenirs.

Head to Tabgha to visit the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Tabgha and drive to the Mount of Beatitudes on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, stopping off at different points to enjoy the stunning scenery and the peaceful atmosphere. Perhaps lunch at the excellent fish restaurant at Kibbutz Ein Gev.

Travel onto Capernaum, historically a picturesque fisherman’s village, and now the site of an ancient synagogue unearthed by archaeologists. Estimated to have been inhabited since the 1st century, today, the site is under the joint control of Franciscan monks and Greek orthodox priests.

From the northwest shores of the Galilee, drive onto Yardenit, located on the banks of the Jordan River and the spot at which it is said John the Baptist baptized Jesus. Today, it is a spiritual center for Christian pilgrims, who come from across the globe to be immersed in the waters. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the site, before returning to Haifa with your private guide for drop-off back at the port or your hotel.
