    What to Expect
    This full-day tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Then drive to the city of 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 here.

    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 and the Church of St. Joseph, built over the carpentry workshop of Mary’s husband, Joseph.

    Further north, pass by the Church of the Multiplication next to the Sea of Galilee. This is where the miracle of the five loaves and two fish 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 hometown 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. Consider being baptized here as part of this tour.

    The sightseeing concludes at this point. Then, board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels, passing Mount Tabor, believed by many Christians to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus, on the return trip.

    We reached the company 1 day before the tour date via WhatsApp to be sure with pick up details as we read lots of negative reviews about delays. They confirmed for 05:50 from our hotel. The same morning we were also in touch with the agency, always via WhatsApp, trying to be

    Dear Berrak, Sincere apologies for a most unfortunate account. But not fully understood how you missed each other. Indeed there was a problem with your pickup yesterday. You will be fully refunded by the company you booked with. However we do despite your anger and (and harsh and furious call with our operation staff). We have specific vehicle GPS proof on record that the van stood outside the YMCA at 6.24 am (sent to your booking agent as proof) as well that he returned to look for you at 6.36 am (also sent as proof of vehicle stoppage). When you called the office, they cannot always call the driver (not allowed to answer during driving) but he has very clear listing of people to be collected. We were in touch with the hotel manager and she said you were there, as well that our driver called to ask you to be outside on the pavement. It is not at all clear how come you missed each other and therefore we do not however deserve your shaming. We transport and guide 10000s of satisfied travelers as you see by the 8000!!!!! reviews on this platform, not nearly comparable by any of our competitors... And yes, there are mishaps that occur. Sorry it was this way for you. It was not as if it was intended. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team

    Yehuda/Judah was an amazing tour guide. He went out of his way to explain things thoroughly throughout the tour and gave above and beyond insight when approached one of one. My mom sprained her ankle on the tour and he went out of his way to make sure we were one of the first

    The bus came 30 minutes late after telling us to be up at a ridiculous hour. Then we were herded like cattle onto a bigger bus in Tel Aviv with no communication. There were not enough seats we couldn't even sit together! There was no communication until we got to a service

    Dear Katugampola, Bein Harim is sorry to read that this was the unpleasant nature of the tour with us. The morning procedure is a complex system trying to coordinate everyone to their tour buses. It generally goes smooth, otherwise you wouldn't see 94% excellent rating and over 7700 reviews for us on this platform. It is clear you were not made aware that half an hour delay for the pick up is probable due to traffic situation. There were enough seats on the bus, as far as we understood, you just could not seat together... That's a different case... Group tours are not suited for everybody. No doubt, you were not meant to be rushed, and for this we need to take it up with the guide. Please contact us in a private message indicating your last name and your reservation number so we could investigate with the guide. Being rushed should not have occurred, but also the guide cannot keep the pace suited to all and has to maintain an overall acceptable tour pace in order to reach all locations, even if there was a later start. We are indeed happy to read that you were satisfied with the tour itself. It is clear following your account written here on your day there was some additional issue. For this and your overall experience we offer our regrets that it was so. Sincerely, Bein Harim Tourism Services team
