Detailed itinerary

Enjoy a seamless pick-up service from Haifa port, where your guide will be readily waiting for you at the main meeting deck. Look for a personalized sign with your name, ensuring easy identification after passing through immigration control for a hassle-free start to your private tour.

Arrive at 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. The architect Giovanni Muzio built the striking new basilica in the 1960s.

Continue onward via Cana (Kfar Kana) to view the Mount of Beatitudes and Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish at Tabgha. Set on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, you will stop to view the sea, and continue to the nearby ruins of the ancient synagogue of Capernaum.

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. On our way back, if time allows get a chance to see Mt. Tabor, the site of transfiguration. 

Finishing the tour, a convenient return transfer will be arranged to return you to the port, aligning with your ship’s departure schedule. Rest assured, our commitment ensures you not only enjoy the best possible experience but also guarantees your timely return to Haifa port.

Wonderful tour with Avi. Favorite stop was the Sea of Galilee. Avi was wonderful with our group and made the tour fit our requests. We were able to stay away from most large crowds and navigate sites as slowly or quickly as we wanted. Highly recommend this tour.

This company is fantastic. They worked with us to accommodate our group and add on other activities. And Benjamin was the best driver! He was prompt and knowledgeable and fun. We loved the Jeep ride through the Judean desert and the Dead Sea. I highly recommend! My girls and husband are still thanking me for the highlight of our trip!

Thanks to Enrique, our truly wonderful guide, and to Benjamin of Compass for creating the private tour package, our group of six, over-55 year olds had an exceptional experience seeing Israel and also Petra and Wadi Rum in Jordan. There was enough flexibility each day where we were able to learn much history, take breaks, shoot photos, avoid long lines and even make extra stops that we requested such as markets and other interest spots. I would choose Compass and Enrique again and recommend them to my family and friends.

We have just completed a private tour for a week with Compass and would highly recommend company services to anyone contemplating either a short or longer visit to Israel. Our guide Saul knew how to manage the group, with his humour, knowledge, patience and attention to the varying ages and interests. Some of us had visited Israel many times before but he kept us engaged and we continued to learn new facts particularly through his stories and anecdotes. Highly recommend Compass
