Leave modern Tel Aviv on a full-day, private tour of Nazareth, Tiberias and the Sea of Galilee that takes in Israel’s biblical history. Visit an arched basilica and intimate shrines in the Church of the Annunciation, and explore hushed crypts beneath St. Joseph’s Church. Follow Jesus’ biblical footsteps to Kfar Kana and Tiberias then board a boat across the Sea of Galilee. Enter Capernaum to discover ruins of the synagogues where Jesus taught, then stop at a Jordan River baptismal site and return to Tel Aviv. 
What to Expect
Leave your centrally located hotel or prearranged pickup location in Tel Aviv, settle into your private, air-conditioned vehicle with your driver-guide, and travel north to Nazareth in the Galilean hills.
On the way, hear how Nazareth is known as Jesus’ childhood home and boasts an old quarter filled with churches and biblical landmarks. As you travel, chat to your guide about customizing your itinerary to suit your interests, perhaps to spend more time at a particular site than another.
When you arrive, visit the churches that most catch your interest. Most visitors focus on the modern Church of the Annunciation, where an underground cave is cited as where the Angel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary to announce Jesus’ forthcoming birth.
See the grotto in question, and then choose to visit the other nearby churches or sites that interest you, such as the Church of St Joseph, held to stand on the site of Joseph’s carpentry workshop.
Next, pause in the town of Kfar Kana to take photos of the Church of the Multiplication, where Jesus is said to have turned water into wine. Then, travel on to the city of Tiberias on the banks of the Sea of Galilee.
Enjoy a boat ride on the lake as you hear the story of how Jesus walked on its waters before continuing to Capernaum, where age-old ruins and churches mark the sites of Jesus’ ministry over 2,000 years ago.
See the relics of St Peter’s house and a synagogue built where Jesus preached, and visit the Church of the Loaves and Fishes that marks the miraculous feeding of the 5,000.
Finish at Yardenit, the holy baptismal site located on the Jordan River. Absorb the scenes here and, if you want to be baptised (own expense), talk to your guide to see if it can be arranged during your stop.
Later, return to Tel Aviv and end your tour with a hotel drop-off.
