Overview
Visit the Holy Land sites of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on this full-day guided tour from Jerusalem. Travel to the city of Nazareth, described in the New Testament as the childhood home of Jesus. See popular Holy Land sites like the Basilica of the Annunciation and Mt Tabor, the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus. At the Sea of Galilee, see where Jesus performed miracles and walk the shores where he first taught his followers. Also, consider being baptized where Jesus was, in the Jordan River.
What to Expect
This full-day (12 hours) tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Then it’s a 2-hour drive to the city of Nazareth, the capital and largest city in the Northern District of Israel, also known as 'the Arab capital of Israel.' In the New Testament, Nazareth is described as the home of Mary and the childhood home of Jesus. As a result, it’s a center of Christian pilgrimage, with many shrines commemorating biblical events here.

On this tour, visit the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus and the Church of St Joseph, built over the carpentry workshop of Mary’s husband, Joseph.

Further north, pass by the Church of the Multiplication next to the Sea of Galilee. This is where the miracle of the five loaves and two fish took place in the Gospel of John. Walk along the shores of the Sea of Galilee and visit the village of Capernaum, where Jesus spent time teaching in the local synagogue. It was also the hometown of the apostles Peter, James, Andrew and John.

Finally, travel to the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, where the Jordan River meets the Dead Sea in Tiberias. This is where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Consider being baptized here as part of this tour.

The sightseeing concludes at this point. Then, board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels, passing Mount Tabor, believed by many Christians to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus, on the return trip.
