Nazareth Galilee Yardenit Tour highlights

Tour detailed itinerary

Departure from your pickup point to Nazareth, city of religion and faith, of spirituality and holiness, but also a city with a rich history, fascinating archaeology, modern culture and Middle Eastern charm. Nazareth, which began as a small Jewish village about 2,000 years ago, became a stronghold of Christianity in the Byzantine period, just a few hundred years later.

Arrive in Nazareth and visit St. Joseph’s Church and the Church of the Annunciation. The largest Roman Catholic church in the Middle East, the Church of the Annunciation is, according to tradition, the scene of the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary. 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.

We pass by Cana the site where Jesus turned water into wine. We see the Mt. of Beatitudes where Christ gave his Sermon on the Mount. The tour stops in Capernaum where Jesus based himself during his ministry in Galilee. In Capernaum, we will see the Church built over the excavated home of St. Peter and in the nearby village of Tabgha – the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes. The Church of the Multiplication, this sacred site stands as a testament to that extraordinary event, where Jesus multiplied loaves and fishes to feed a multitude.  

Proceed to Yardenit, situated on the banks of the Jordan River, flowing forth from the Sea of Galilee, the baptismal site of Yardenit welcomes over half a million tourists and pilgrims annually who come to experience the spirituality and pastoral beauty of the waters of the River Jordan, in which Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.

Yardenit considered the third most holy site in the Holy Land, just after Nativity Grotto in Bethlehem and Golgotha in Jerusalem, because it is the site of the most important event of Jesus’ life – his baptism and beginning of his ministry. The site offers 12 separate baptismal pools, enabling different groups to comfortably conduct private worship ceremonies.

After an unforgettable day filled with Christian sites in Galilee, Norther part of Israel, we return south, passing Mt. Tabor site of the Transfiguration. Return transfer to pickup point.

This is the closest you get to actually experiencing where Jesus lived and I reached. The sites are impactful and to just be at the Sea of Galilee where everything happened is amazing. Finally the Baptism at Yardenit was Fantastic. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Israel.
Another fascinating day out in beautiful Israel

A great day all round. Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth was out of this world, visiting the Sea of Galilee where Jesus performed many miracles was amazing and the River Jordan, where Jesus was baptised was magnificent and emotional especially as we witnessed the joy of others being baptised in the Holy waters. Thank you to our guide Martin, who was excellent in that he was organised, personable and very knowledgeable.

She pointed out the history of the areas we pass through. She was very accommodating with the group throughout our whole trip. Yaqub our driver facilitated safe stress free travel. I can't say enough great things about this tour it's worth your time whether you are Christian or not.
