Haifa Shore Excursion: Nazareth and Galilee Day Trip
US$99.00
Overview
When arriving in Israel at the Port of Haifa, visit the holy lands of Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee on this guided, full-day shore excursion. Travel to the city of Nazareth, described in the New Testament as the childhood home of Jesus. See popular sites like the Basilica of the Annunciation and Mount Tabor, the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus. At the Sea of Galilee, see where Jesus performed miracles and visit the synagogue where he first taught his followers. Port of Haifa pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
This full-day tour begins with a Port of Haifa pickup in an air-conditioned minivan. Then it’s a 40-minute drive through the Carmel mountains to Nazareth, the capital and largest city in the Northern District of Israel, also known as “the Arab capital of Israel.” In the New Testament, Nazareth is described as the home of Mary and the childhood home of Jesus. As a result, it’s a center of Christian pilgrimage, with many shrines commemorating biblical events.

On this tour, visit the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus. See the Church of St Joseph, built over the carpentry workshop of Mary’s husband, Joseph, and pass through Kafr Kanna, where Jesus turned water into wine.

Farther north, pass by the Church of the Multiplication next to the Sea of Galilee. This is where the miracle of the loaves and fishes took place in the Gospel of John. Walk along the shores of the Sea of Galilee and visit the village of Capernaum, where Jesus spent time teaching in the local synagogue. It was also the home town of the apostles Peter, James, Andrew and John.

Finally, travel to the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, where the Jordan River meets the Dead Sea in Tiberias. This is where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. And make a stop to see the Mount of Beatitudes, a hill in northern Israel where Jesus is believed to have delivered the Sermon on the Mount.

The tour concludes here. Board the coach for the return trip to the Port of Haifa.

Detailed Private Tours

Our private tour was great. Our guide was knowledgeable and knew how to avoid long lines. The Land Rover Discovery vehicle was very comfortable and we feel that we saw many more things than we could have seen on a conventional tour.
