Departure Time

5:50 AM
Start with morning pickup at your hotel in Jerusalem, then begin the trip to the Sea of Galilee. The first stop of the day is Magdala, the site of an ancient fishing village with a Second Temple-era synagogue, which is believed to have been in use during Jesus’ lifetime.

Continue towards the western shore of the Sea of Galilee, and visit the Yigal Allon Museum, where you’ll see the remains of a 1st-century fishing boat that was discovered in the Sea of Galilee. Drive north around the Sea to the Mount of Beatitudes, which Matthew and Luke identify as the location of the Sermon on the Mount. Visit the Catholic chapel on top of the mountain, where Jesus is said to have multiplied fishes and loaves, saying “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth”.

The final stop of the day is Cana, site of the Biblical wedding where Jesus turned water into wine. Visit the Franciscan Wedding Church that commemorates the event, and after your time in Cana, begin the return trip to Jerusalem. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel in Jerusalem.

The site at Magdala was the absolute hight of my Israel tour. Fantastic guide Mary from USA I think at Magdala was what made it. Even our tour guide said that he had brought groups to Magdalaon many many occasions but had never experienced what Mary brought. A genuinely moving faith experience when we imagined Jesus teaching in this newly excavated synagogue. The church centre was very tasteful also which is not how i would describe most sites in Israel. Boat as alter overlooking the sea of Galilee was memorable. I fear this place will soon be overdeveloped - but for now it was very moving - but it was a personal thing to me. I felt more connected to Jesus having been here than in any other part of Israel! quite a statement I know but it was true for me.
