Our private tour will focus on Nazareth and the Galilee region of Israel. Traditionally, this area is considered a region with a magnificent Christian heritage and it is full of Christian sites and sites of interest to the Christian community.
We will begin our daily tour in Nazareth. Nazareth is home to a variety of events that took place during Biblical times. The tour will start at Church of Annunciation. In this holy place, the angel Gabriel appeared before Mary (Luke 1:26). Next to the church, there is the Church of St. Joseph and the carpentry shop. We will visit these two places as well.
After this we will continue the tour with a visit to the Greek orthodox church. The tour will continue to the place where Jesus was rejected – to Mount of Precipitation, in a place where the Bible describes that: “They lead him to the brow of the hill … that they may throw him down” (Luke 4: 28-30). From this point, we will be able to observe one of the most beautiful places in Israel – Emek Izrael. The valley blooms and green almost year-round and is home to millions of migratory birds. From the vantage point, we will continue towards Cana. There, it is described that Jesus performed the miracle of turning water into wine. We will feel the special atmosphere in this place and try to connect to the feelings that accompanied Jesus in carrying out the miracle.
Later we will continue towards the Old City of Tiberias. Today, the city is a center of vibrant and flourishing life, thus continuing its glorious past as an impressive business and social center located at the foot of the Sea of Galilee. We will sail along the Sea of Galilee, in the same place where Jesus is said to have performed a miracle and walked on water. We’ll continue our trip to visit the Capernaum, the home of Peter and the nearby Benedictine Church, where Jesus multiplied the loaves and fish, and then onto Mensa Christi, where Jesus made his final revelation.
Continue along the shore to the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered his Sermon on the Mount (Mat 5), and then on to Yardenit, where we will have a one of kind opportunity to be baptized in the Jordan River.
Assuming we will remain with long enough time for the daily tour, we can choose to climb the special Mount Tavor. The mountain stands firm in a relatively flat environment and thus shows many spreads. Then we will continue to the Church of the Transfiguration, the remains at Bethsaida and to Megiddo, where you will see the plain of Armageddon.
The tour is customized for you. Together we will decide which sites are more interesting to us and which are less on the day, and thus we will build an exciting and sacred program together.
