Nazareth, Tiberias, and the Sea of Galilee Day Trip from Tel Aviv

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Visit the Holy Land sites of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on a day trip from Tel Aviv. You'll journey across Israel’s coastal plains to explore the city of Nazareth, the setting of many New Testament tales, then travel to the Sea of Galilee, where Jesus performed many miracles. If you’re intrigued by the sacred, or simply interested in the fascinating fables of the bible, this tour should be on your must-do list!
  • New Testament tour of Israel from Tel Aviv covers main Christian sites
  • See the places where Bible stories are believed to have taken place
  • Option to get baptized in the Jordan River at Yardenit
  • Travel round-trip from your hotel in the comfort of a climate-controlled coach
What to Expect
After pickup at your hotel in Tel Aviv, enjoy views of the countryside from a climate-controlled coach as you travel to Nazareth. There, visit the Church of the Annunciation and the Church of St. Joseph. Then, continue to Kafr Kanna, believed to be the site of the biblical story of the wedding at Cana. Arrive on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and pass the Church of the Multiplication, built on the believed location of the biblical feeding of the 5,000. In the archaeological site of Capernaum, see the ruined synagogue where Jesus is believed to have taught. Afterward, visit the baptismal site at Yardenit. If you’d like, you’ll have the option to be baptized in the same place where Jesus is believed to have been baptized. The return trip to Tel Aviv passes Mount Tabor, or the Mount of Transfiguration, and the day concludes with hotel drop-off.

The places are fascinating, but the focus is very much on gift shop bingeing and big old gold plated churches full of made-in-China rosaries being thrust in your face by street vendors. You run the risk of feeling like human chattel if your guide is not good. Fortunately, we had

Dear Daniel, Thanks for the rave review of your guide Eitan who definitely is worthy of your kind words and 5 star rating for his informative commentary and skillful tour management. So how can Bein Harim get around it? What you describe when they are everywhere. We are sorry for this impression that the market vendors are out there, indeed as the volumes of travelers visit, so the vendors appear . We understand your irritation, however, Bein Harim cannot only be held responsible for what you describe. Please note many first time travelers do want to purchase items. Very little is not manufactured in China! We cannot for the smooth running of the tour schedule let travelers wander off on their own in the old city to browse for purchasing items they wish to take home with them. We are glad you were very satisfied with our guide EItan. He deserves your praise. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team

The sites visited were quite commercialised. The coach was comfortable with air conditioning and the tour guide was informative. Some of the information was interesting regarding the history of the Galilee region. If you are limited for time, I would recommend visits to Masada

There are in the Galilee spectacular locations who cater for the volumes of tourists who visit the region. Yes, some of them provide commercial outlets, as is much the case worldwide today.

Every thing was good but at the baptism site we only had 10 min. If holidays they should know if sites are closing or they will close early. Restaurant was expensive and personnel very rude, we (tourist) are paying customers we are no getting the food for free. Show some respect.

Thanks for sharing that you were overall satisfied with the tour services given on the tour to Nazereth. A pity no mention of guide's name, for the personal recognition. It is high holidays season this month, and every guide informs their travelers that there may be constraints as a result at certain locations .The anitiquities department closes locations earlier than usual. We are very sorry to read what you write about the restuarant on the Sea of Galielea. This wil lbe passed on to the manager for accountability of their waiters .Absolutely agree that service offered at such a location should be amicable and respectful.

We got picked up right in front of our hotel by a shuttle, which brought us to the meeting point, where all tours started. It was not a too long drive and we saw many sights on the route. The highlights were the Church of the Annunciation and the Sea of Galilee. Our tour guide
