“Hotel ginosour is fine”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

This hotel was touted as luxury. Buffet dinners aren't luxury for me, but the food was fresh and good. The private Beach on the Sea of Galilee was lovely. The stars in this part of the world are amazing. The staff and management were first class.

“Floated our boat”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The boat itself was good to see, though not overwhelming. But the visitor centre and the site generally were very attractive and we cd have stayed longer.

“Great Quick Stop”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Kibbutz Ginosar is home to the Yigal Allon Museum. The main attractions at the museum include an ancient fishing boat from the time of Jesus and/or the Great Revolt (The boat is dated to the first century in the Common Era). There is a movie with two options, a 7 minute movie or a longer 20 minute version. If you have time, I suggest the longer version. The story of the boat, its discovery and preservation is fascinating. It is a real treasure. The museum also features a small wing dedicated to Yigal Alon one of Israel's greatest war heroes, politicians and champion's of peace. The museum also boasts a small kiosk run by Rimon winery. Free samples of Pomegranate wine are a must try and quite delicious. There is also a snack bar and gift store. Tip- walk up to the third floor balcony for a gorgeous view of the Sea of Galilee ( Lake Kinneret). Give yourself 30 minutes to 1.25 hours for this stop.
