What To Expect - Nazareth and Sea of Galilee Private Tour

Begin your adventure by visiting the famous Nazareth, a city filled with biblical sites. Start at the Church of the Annunciation, where the angel Gabriel appeared before Mary. Close by is the Church of St. Joseph built above a 1st-century dwelling that is believed to have been Joseph’s carpentry and the Holy Family home. Time permitting, take a walk through the Nazareth market and enjoy the sounds, aromas, and colors of this traditional Middle Eastern bazaar. 

Continue with a drive through Kfar Kanna - biblical Cana, where Jesus turned water into wine. Today Kfar Kanna is home to the Wedding Church which marks the site where this miracle took place.

You’ll see parts of the Jesus Trail as the driver takes you across the pastoral Galilee countryside, and through the ancient Jewish town of Magdala before reaching Tabgha. At this small town on the edge of the Sea of Galilee stop to visit the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fish.

The present church was built on two earlier churches marking the site of the miracle of multiplication. It was also where Jesus is believed to have made his fourth resurrection appearance.

Your Galilee private tour will continue to Kfar Nahum, better known as the biblical town of Capernaum where Jesus based himself during his ministry. Stop at the Church of Saint Peter which marks the site of the home of the disciple Peter. Excavation revealed a 5th-century octagonal church and layers of residential homes from the 1st century. The church stands in the center of the archaeological site and nearby is an ancient synagogue where Jesus is believed to have preached. 

After lunch, the final stop of the day is at Yardenit, where you can choose to be baptized in the Jordan River as Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist 2000 years ago.
