      Age restrictions

      Suitable for all ages.

      Follow in the footsteps of biblical giants! Start your journey with a drive through the Jezreel Valley, Israel's breadbasket and home to many historical and biblical treasures. Continue to Nazareth, which was, according to the Gospel of Luke, the home village of the Virgin Mary, as well as the site of the Annunciation, when the angel Gabriel is said to have appeared to Mary to tell her that she would give birth to Jesus.

      Your guided tour will take you to the Basilica of the Annunciation, where you'll see the Grotto of the Annunciation, believed to be the remains of the original childhood home of Mary. You'll then stop by next door for a visit to the Church of Saint Joseph, dedicated to the patriarch of the Holy Family and located, according to early tradition, over the home of the Holy Family.

      Continue on to Cana, best known as the place where, according to the Gospel of John, Jesus performed his first public miracle by turning a large quantity of water into wine at a wedding feast. Get in the spirit of things by doing a little feasting of your own as you enjoy a delicious lunch overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

      Commemorate the legacy of Saint Peter, one of Jesus' twelve apostles and the first pope, in Tabgha. Stop at the Church of the Primacy of Saint Peter, which is known as marking the spot of Jesus' reinstatement of Peter as chief among his apostles. Then, follow the coastline to the nearby fishing village of Capernaum. See the ancient synagogue where Jesus taught and the house of Saint Peter. Before returning to Haifa, you'll make time for stops at the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus gave his seminal Sermon on the Mount, and the Yardenit baptismal site along the Jordan River. A day spent exploring the Galilee region is surely one for the ages!

      To sea or not to sea

      Did you know that the Sea of Galilee isn't really a sea at all? Yup, that's right, it's actually Israel's largest natural freshwater lake and it goes by several names, including Kinneret, Lake of Gennesaret, Lake Tiberias, or the Sea of Galilee. No matter what you call this 64-square-mile body of water that's fed by the Jordan River, there are many ways you can enjoy it. Walk or bike along its shores, dine in a floating restaurant, paddle in a kayak or canoe, or try your hand (and legs) at kite surfing.
