View the Church of the Annunciation, Mt Tabor, and other Holy Land sights
Includes admission ticket to Kfar Nahum (Capernaum) National Park
Hotel pickup and drop-off included by air-conditioned bus
What to expect
This full-day tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Then 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.

Good sites but biased tour and disorganised
Feb 2020
I would have felt like there was a part missing from my trip if I didn't go up north and see Nazareth, Jordan, and the Sea of Galilee. But the tour felt very religiously biased. I would have preferred to get the historical facts and where things are disputed I want to hear all the sides and make up my own mind. I felt like the guide was giving her own opinions as if they were fact and so I did not find this tour as informative as I would have liked. We stopped at a restaurant for lunch on the Sea of Galilee, the guide was obviously friends with the owner, which I wouldn't mind, except that there were no other food options around and the restaurant was terrible and very expensive! The pickup was also very disorganised and I had to try and make myself understood to a hotel receptionist to try and get them to phone the company to find out where they were after they were half an hour late.
The bus was air-conditioned and comfortable.

Dear Robyn A pity that you chose SO long to wait to post this, your disatisfaction with this tour. It is most unusual to read how you review our guide. They are all so highly reviewed on this platform. Regarding the restaurant on the banks of the sea of Galilea. No she doesn't know the owner! This is the restaurant we eat at, that caters for groups. Thee are NO decent places in this region as you saw, completely rural and with kibbutz settlements all around. The menu is varied with salads and fish.. one can wonder off to eat elsewhere on a group tour. Not sure what you were expecting. Wierd regarding pickup as unless you were at a hotel where we dont collect, this may have been the problem. We can be delayed. Pickup is not an exact science ! Especially in Jerusalem However hard we try daily to collect all our travellers from their exact locations. We are sure when tourism will resume some time, as we are present fully locked down, we will continue to provide services of the highest standard, as is shown on the thousands of reviews on this platform.

Full day covering the highlights (Nazareth, Sea of Galilee, Jordan River)
Mar 2020 • Family
We were looking for a one day tour of the major Bible sites in and around Nazareth. If you only have one day, this is a good option - it includes visits to the Church of the Annunciation and Church of St. Joseph in Nazareth, Capernaum, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Multiplication, and the Jordan River. Our guide also pointed out additional sites (which we didn’t visit) including the site of Armageddon in Revelations, Tiberias, Mount Tabor, and the location of the miracle of turning water to wine. Tiberias is not visited in the tour, contrary to the tour title.

Our guide, Dan Porges, provided historical and religious background on all the places we visited as well as locations we passed by on the bus. His explanations included stories about Jesus and the disciples as well as readings from the Bible related to particular sites. He was well-prepared and his Bible was full of bookmarks and notes - he was visibly passionate about the topic.

I was disappointed that we did not stop at the site of the miracle of turning water into wine - I think a stop of just 15-20 minutes would have been enough. Overall the tour felt slightly rushed but that is to be expected when covering this much in one day. For anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the history and stories, I would suggest a multi-day tour or hiking the Gospel trail. For anyone who is short on time and wants to see all the important sites, this tour is for you.

Thanks, Linse, for this detailed account of satisfaction with the tur guided by Dan. He is a highly esteemed member on our team and worthy of your recognition for his efforts. He has vast experience, a wealth of knowledge and it is clear you enjoyed his professionalism and informative commentary. Regarding not stopping at the Church in Kefar Cana,this is not always possible in the time schedule of the tour(there are often busloads of pilgrims visiting and invariably delays are caused as entry is limited.) Indeed it is a highlights only tour , and well said that any in-depth wishes, needs to be done individually and with time.

A Meaningful Day in Nazareth and Galilee
I had a great tour of Nazareth and Sea of Galilee with our very professional guide, Ms Dorit Epstein and expert driver, Mr Shy.

Although pick up was almost an hour late, Dorit was amazing enough to make the rest of the day pleasant and wonderful.

Enroute, Dorit gave excellent commentaries about the sites we would be visiting. She recounted to us stories in Jesus' life in a very interesting way, even using visual materials as aid in her explanations. The reading of the Bible verses made it more meaningful for me. It was like taking my Religion class once again... but this time, I am in the exact places where the Biblical stories actually happened. The feeling was indescribable.

We visited significant places such as the Church of the Annunciation, Church of Saint Joseph, Church of the Multiplication, Capernaum & the house of Saint Peter, and the Baptism site at Yadernit. Despite the full schedule, I never felt rushed even with traveling in a group.

Dorit managed our group very well. We were a diverse mix of people of different races, religion and age... interested in learning about history, religion, culture, some even current political/security issues of Israel. Dorit welcomed all types of questions from our group then willingly and patiently answered each of them.

I also appreciated Dorit's kindness in helping me with my last minute booking of Masada and Dead Sea tour for the next day by making a telephone call to her office.

I hope to go back for Nazareth, Jericho as well as Caesarea... and I hope to have Ms Dorit Epstein as my tour guide again.

Thank you for a meaningful and amazing day!

Shalom!

Dear Vann, Bein Harim tourism thanks you very much for this complimentary and rave review of the tour guided by our professional guide Dorit., described in your detailed account of the management of the tour, her informative and interesting diverse commentary, and lovely engaging manner. She sure is worthy of your favorable feedback for her efforts. She is certainly worthy of all that you have mentioned.

Bein Hari tourism hopes to see you someday again soon.

Spendiing the Day with Dorit
Feb 2020
I had one of the most fascinating days of my life. Dorit gave so much of herself in explaining about biblical history, Israeli history, Jewish Arab relations and Middle Eastern Culture. She was so charming and was like a mother hen taking care of her chicks.. I took in so much that day that "my cup runneth over". Thank you Dorit for that most wonderful experience.

Yoav Malachi - An incredible tour guide!
Feb 2020 • Family
This was our second tour with Bein Harim this week and it was fantastic! The Nazareth trip was wonderful, traced the early steps of Jesus through beautiful landscapes and stunning churches. However, the true highlight was our informative and humorous tour guide Yoav Malachi. Yoav brought the history of the area to life. He even arranged to drop off us off at a pharmacy when our daughter got sick. A wonderful tour guide. Highly recommended!
