Excellent perspective of Jesus’ life as a child. Inside tours, outdoors sites and real settlement of the time, lunch is excellent including the time place era. A definite must see and do while touring Israel.

The village is set up as a replica as they what a typical village would like in the time if Jesus. It was slightly cheesy with staff dressed up as villagers so you could take selfies with them. But our guide was amazing and was so passionate about sharing his faith and explaining what life would have been like. We all left feeling inspired with a much better idea of what some of the parables meant having seen a potter and weaver in action.

The tour is very educational. It recreates life at the time of Christ. The recreated synagogue turns the biblical account alive. The lunch was relatively good: the locally baked bread was tasty and crunchy, the lentile soup was simple lacking spices and flavors, the chicken thigh was undercooked and not edible! Overall: The tour was perfect, the food was not good at all!

One of the best experiences I’ve had. I always had the wish to see how people in the 1st century lived. There, you can have an idea of how it was. Great tour guide and amazing staff. I would definitely recommend.

We visited this site as part of a tour group and spent a bit over an hour touring. We were given one of their guides who walked us through the property and explained what the various actors were doing. It was interesting to see the building and farming methods used anciently; as far as I'm aware everything was historic as it would have been in the time that Jesus lived there. The visit was a neat opportunity to glimpse what the past might have looked like.

It was interesting to see bible times coming alive. Had such awesome time hearing the different characters descriptions of what they are doing in the old days. A replica of where Jesus stayed. Saw the 400 yrs old olive tree. Simply love this place and pls go and see for yourself this wonderful place.

Loved this village and the wonderful storytelling of our guide, Daniel. Very good communicator, educating us on 1st century life and Jesus. Very well done and I would recommend to those in Nazareth. This is not just for kids, great for adults too!

This is a recreation of a 1st century village and there are actors dressed up in period costumes and there are recreations of some old houses, olive press, and a synagogue. There is an original wine press and place where they made clay for pottery.
It was just a bit odd as it's supposed to be a first century village, but the whole time you are overlooked by and can see modern higher rise buildings and you can always hear car horns. The tour was a little bit Jesus and bible heavy and at the end they worked you for extra donations.
It's worth visiting to see for yourself

Nazareth Village shares the story of what Nazareth was really like in the time of Christ. This living history museum will have something for everyone in the family.

I love how the guides share Biblical truths throughout the whole tour.

Definitely worth your time.
