This full-day tour begins with a Jerusalem hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. Then drive to the city of Nazareth, the capital and largest city in the Northern District of Israel, also known as 'the Arab capital of Israel.' In the New Testament, Nazareth is described as the home of Mary and the childhood home of Jesus. As a result, it’s a center of Christian pilgrimage, with many shrines commemorating biblical events here.

On this tour, visit the Church of the Annunciation, where the Angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary to tell her she would be the mother of Jesus and the Church of St. Joseph, built over the carpentry workshop of Mary’s husband, Joseph.

Further north, pass by the Church of the Multiplication next to the Sea of Galilee. This is where the miracle of the five loaves and two fish took place in the Gospel of John. Walk along the shores of the Sea of Galilee and visit the village of Capernaum, where Jesus spent time teaching in the local synagogue. It was also the hometown of the apostles Peter, James, Andrew, and John.

Finally, travel to the southern end of the Sea of Galilee, where the Jordan River meets the Dead Sea in Tiberias. This is where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. Consider being baptized here as part of this tour.

The sightseeing concludes at this point. Then, board the coach for a return trip to the Jerusalem hotels, passing Mount Tabor, believed by many Christians to be the site of the Transfiguration of Jesus, on the return trip.

Bein Harim Tours is not the best option
traveller
, Feb 2020
The tour was amazing, but the organization was not what I expected. 5.50 am was the time they told us we should stay at the lobby, but better 15' in advance. And we did so. At 5.30 am we were there. But they arrived at around 6.15, plus collecting more passengers from other hotels, 45' more, plus changing twice from coach to minibus,... A mess. We lost lots of time waiting. I hyave to say that they apologized, but it's a quite pricy tour to make this kind of mistakes. I wouldn't recommend Bein Harim Tours. Actually it was the second time I made this tour, so I could compare with the previous. The guide didn't go down and tell us about St Joseph's house neither.

Lots of sites, horrible lunch.

It was great ish. Great guide, hit a lot of sites ... Driving was rough. Got motion sick. It's a constant tapping of the brakes. HUGE NEGATIVE... They take you to the most horrible restaurant for lunch. It's a crowded buffet style with salad bar and 5 main plate options. It's where all the tours go. You are packed in with too many people at your assigned table. It's like being in large cafeteria. These people want you in and out, don't care about service. We went to such wonderful little towns. I would have loved to have an hour just to stop and get a falafel or something. But the schedule is so tight you cannot stop at any of the shops (which I get ...) Just really wish the food situation would have been better. We got just the salad bar, it was gross. But we paid, left group and sat out by the sea of Galilee .. now that was amazing. You can find the positive in anything if you look hard enough :)

The day was a lot of driving. A fair experience. The sites are mostly churches over historical sites. The guide used the bible to go thru information about the sites. The lunch was at an isolated place and so the meal was 22$ per person. No street food or other options were available.

Our tour was on 20 Nov 2018, The tourist guides are really good, they are very knowledgeable and very entertaining, the tour itself is good we went to Bethlehem and its amazing, from there we went to olive carving factory which is really unnecessary, We went to Dead see after, we have different driver, we have a great time in there but going back to Jerusalem makes us tense as we waited in the boarder almost an hour for another car to pick us up, the driver cannot drive us back to Jerusalem because he is not allowed to cross the boarder, there were no proper explanation because the driver doesn't speak English well, 4 of us waited for almost an hour and we are very tense and worried.
