Tour Description

Our tour guide and mini-bus will meet you outside the reception hall of the Haifa on the time stated after you have booked your tour and based on your ship’s arrival. We will leave the port and head to Nazareth, Jesus’ hometown and where Christians believe Mary received the annunciation from Angel Gabriel that she would conceive and become the mother of Jesus. 

 

We will visit the Church of Annunciation, where Christians believe the underground Grotto is Mary’s childhood home. Next, we will visit the Church of St. Joseph where according to tradition, used to be Joseph’s carpentry workshop. In the lower part of the church there are some 2000 years old archaeological remains from ancient Nazareth.

From Nazareth we will head north to a beautiful overlook of the Valley of Armageddon (Megiddo). According to the scripts, this was the site of the final battle of Armageddon.

 

Our next stop will be on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. We will visit Mt. of the Beatitudes overlooking the lake. From there we will head to Capernaum - Where Jesus spent most of his adult life and where he began preaching. There will be an option to lunch at the Sea of Galilee for those who would like to.

 

Next we will visit Tabgha, where Jesus performed the miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

We will drive along the shore of the Sea of Galilee to the origin of the Jordan river and visit a baptismal site where you will have the chance to get baptised.

On our way back to the port, we will stop by an overlook of Haifa, including the Baha’i Gardens and Temples, if time permits. It is a magnificent view of Haifa, and you will be able to take a picture of your ship from the top. We will arrive at the port in time for your departure or overnight stay.
