Nazareth Galilee and Jordan River Yardenit Tour from Herzliya

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
Get picked up from your hotel in Herzliya, Netanya, Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, or Jerusalem in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle and enjoy the scenery as you drive via the coastal road through the landscape of the lower Galilee toward Nazareth.

Nazareth is a 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. During that period the name of Nazareth spread far and wide, and the yearnings to see the place where the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ had lived turned the city into a popular pilgrimage site. Visit the Church of the Annunciation and the Church of St. Josef.

Continue through Kana to Tiberias, Sea of Galilee. Drive along Kineret Lake to visit Capernaum. Next, visit Tabgha, located at the foot of the Golan Heights, site of the miracle of fish and loaves. Proceed to Yardenit River, 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.

At the conclusion of the tour, you'll be returned to your original pickup location.

Except from the guide everything was excellent. To be at both Galilea sea and put our feet in holy water at the same day was amazing. Trip recommended!
