From Haifa: Guided Day Trip to Nazareth and Sea of Galilee

1. From Haifa: Guided Day Trip to Nazareth and Sea of Galilee

After being met by your guide at the Haifa cruise port you will take a pleasant drive north to Galilee. The journey takes you past the Jezreel Valley, known as biblical Armageddon. Our first stop is in Nazareth where Jesus spent the first years of his life. Tour the magnificent Church of Annunciation that marks the site where Mary first learned of her future son. Then explore the 1st-century grotto dwelling under Saint Joseph’s Church. According to tradition, Mary, Joseph, and their son Jesus may once have lived here. As the tour leaves Nazareth we see Mary’s Well then continue past Kfar Kana, the biblical town of Cana. Here Jesus changed water into wine. The tour takes you to the edge of the Sea of Galilee, and the Mount of Beatitudes. Here you can picture Jesus preaching to his followers. Visit the Beatitudes Church that looks out over the Sea of Galilee. The tour continues to Tabgha, a small village by the water. Here we tour the Multiplication Church where Jesus miraculously shared five loaves and two fish between thousands of followers. The next stop is in Kfar Nachum (Capernaum). This is where Jesus spent most of his ministry. After a lunch break at a Galilee restaurant, we stop on the banks of the River Jordan, at Yardenit. If there is enough time you may be baptized at this traditional baptismal site. The tour makes its way south passing the twin peaks of the Horns of Hattin, where Saladin famously defeated the Crusaders in 1187. At the end of the tour, you’ll be returned to the port in Haifa in time to board the cruise ship and continue your adventure.

Our Guide to Nazareth and Galilee, Ehud, was Amazing!

Ehud picked us up at a private residence in Natanya for our full day tour of Nazareth and Galilee. He was punctual and had an amazing day planned for us. His car was luxurious, spacious and very well kept. He kept us ahead of the large crowds and made sure we had space to see the sites and hear his knowledgeable and thorough explainations. We had a lovely lunch and were able to try the St Peter fish which was delicious. He surprised us at the end of the tour with a trip to the oldest kibbutz in Israel and then delivered us to our hotel in Jerusalem. An amazing day and an amazing guide! We highly recommend him.
