You will meet our guide outside the reception hall of the port of Haifa, from where we will head to Nazareth. On the drive to Nazareth your tour guide will inform you about Israel’s rich history. The drive will be about one hour, depending on traffic.


We begin our tour in Nazareth with a visit to the Church of Annunciation and the underground Grotto which was Mary’s childhood home. Next we will make our way to the Church of St. Joseph, which used to be Joseph’s carpentry workshop, according to tradition. There are 2000 year old archaeological remains of ancient Nazareth underneath the church.


From Nazareth we head north to a beautiful overlook of the Valley of Armageddon (Megiddo), on our way to the Sea of Galilee.


At the Sea of Galilee we will visit the Mt. of Beatitudes overlooking the sea. From there we continue to Capernaum, where Jesus spent most of his adult life and began his preaching. There will be an option to have lunch at the Sea of Galilee.

We will get back on the mini-bus and drive along the Sea to the origin of the Jordan river, where you will have the opportunity to be baptised here.
