Our Private Christian Heritage tours of the north of Israel, starts at your hotel, with an overview of the Land of Israel at the time of Jesus and the New Testament, with a geographical emphasis. After the explanation, we will get into luxury cars for the beginning of our trip to Meggido (Armageddon), from which we’ll be able to see our next destination – Nazareth.
En Route to Nazareth, we will be able to see several Biblical sites, including the Valley of Dotan, where Joseph was sold into slavery, the Spring of Harod, where Gideon collected men to fight the Midianites, and Mount Gilboa, where King Saul was slain by the Philistines.
View of Nazareth
Upon arriving Nazareth, we will visit the Church of Annunciation, where Gabriel announced to Mary she was pregnant with Jesus. We will then go next door to the Chapel of Joseph’s Grotto.
Once leaving Nazareth, we will travel through Kfar Cana, where Jesus preformed his first miracle of changing water into wine. Next we’ll descend to the Sea of Galilee and either visit the Church of Multiplication, where Jesus fed the multitudes, or the Church of Primacy, where He appeared after His resurrection then to Peter’s hometown at Capernaum.
Then there will be given an option of either being baptized in the Jordan River at Yardenit (extra charge) or visiting Mount Tabor which is one of the sites attributed to the Transfiguration. This concludes our private tour of Christian places of interest in the north of Israel, and from here we will travel back to your hotel.
