What To Expect

Our tour begins at Haifa port where, after meeting your private guide, you travel to Nazareth, 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.
Then journey onto the Sea of Galilee (stopping to take in views of the Jezreel Valley) and drive around the shore, stopping off at different points to enjoy the stunning scenery and the peaceful atmosphere. Take a wooden fishing boat out on the water, the way Jesus and his disciples often did, or perhaps lunch at the excellent fish restaurant at Kibbutz Ein Gev. Then 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 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 baptised Jesus. Today, it is a spiritual centre 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.
