Itinerary


Tel Aviv Arrival
Upon your arrival you will meet with our representative
at Ben Gurion Airport and be transferred to your hotel in
Tel Aviv. Overnight in Tel Aviv.


Today your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel
for a short drive to the city of Jaffa (Joppa) where we will
take a short tour walking in the picturesque alleys of the
ancient fortified town. We will pass by the house of Simon
the Tanner and then drive up north along the coast to the
archaeological ruins of Caesarea, built by Herod the Great
in honor of Augustus Caesar. Continue to Megiddo, where
the book of Revelation mentions a great battle at a place
called “Armageddon”. It is an ancient city which has been
inhabited continuously for more than five millennia
(6000-500 B.C.). After exploring the ancient ruins we’ll
drive toward the Sea of Galilee. Arrive at Tiberias and
check-in to your hotel. Stay overnight in Tiberias.


We begin the day from historic Tiberias to the Sea of
Galilee, where Jesus sejourned and preached on the
shores. Our next destination will be Capernaum, the
center of Jesus’ ministry. Tabgha, just north of Tiberias
, is the site of Christ’s miracle of feeding the 5,000 and
at the Church of Multiplication the mosaic floor depicts a
basket with loaves of bread and two fish. Drive on to the
Mount of Beatitudes overlooking the sea, where Jesus
preached the “Sermon on the Mount” and where it is
believed that Jesus picked his 12 apostles. We will
ascend to the Golan Heights to view the panoramic view
of the peaks of Mt. Hermon and the rugged plateau of the
Golan Heights, beneath it lies the green pastoral Huleh Valley.
Return to Tiberias for another lovely night in town. Overnight
in Tiberias.


This morning we travel to Cana to visit the Wedding
Church where Jesus performed his first miracle,
turning water into wine. We then proceed to Nazareth,
where Jesus spent his childhood and see the Church
of Annunciation built on the site where archaeologists
believe the Archangel Gabriel appeared to the Virgin Mary.
You will also see Mary’s Well and Joseph’s Church.
Continue through the Jordan Valley to Beit Shean with its
recently excavated amphitheater. Visit the excavations of this
beautiful preserved Roman City which was destroyed in an
earthquake. Continue onward to Jerusalem, where you check-in
to your hotel and stay overnight.


Through remarkable scenery of the Dead Sea we’ll continue
to the fortress of Massada, on an isolated cliff in the Judean
Desert. The site has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage
Site in 2001. Ascend by cable car to the fortress, which was the
last stronghold of the Jewish Zealots in their war against the
Romans. Visit the excavations, King Herod’s palace, the
synagogue, bathhouse and much more. Enjoy the breathtaking
view of the Roman camps and the Dead Sea. En route to the
Dead Sea, you’ll see the site of the Qumran Caves where the
Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered. Nearly 1,300 feet below
sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest point on the earth’s surface.
Bring your swimsuit to and “float” (weather permitting) on the salty
water, rich in minerals. Return to Jerusalem at the end of the day.
Stay overnight in Jerusalem.


Start the day at Mt Scopus and enjoy the spectacular panoramic
view of Jerusalem. As the holy city for each of the world’s three
great religions – Christianity, Judaism and Islam – Jerusalem
occupies a unique place in the world. Your tour includes the
Mount of Olives, a stop at the site where Jesus first gave the
Lord’s Prayer and the Garden of Gethsemane where Judas
betrayed Jesus. In the Old City you’ll see the Western Wall
and the actual site of the Second Temple, the Temple Mount.
Walk the Way of the Cross, the Via Dolorosa, to Calvary and
the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, housing both the traditional
site of Crucifixion and the Tomb of the Resurrection. To the
southwest, just outside the Old City is Mount Zion, with the
traditional tomb of King David and the Room of the Last Supper.
Return to your hotel and stay overnight in Jerusalem.


Today’s tour includes Yad Vashem, the official memorial
to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust established in 1953,
located on the foot of Mt. Hertzel. Enjoy Ein Karem; a
picturesque village on the south western outskirts of Jerusalem.
This small village has great significance in Christian traditions,
since this is where according to tradition, John the Baptist was
born. Visit the Israel Museum with a detailed model of Jerusalem
from the time of the Second Temple and the Shrine of the Book,
which houses the Dead Sea Scrolls. Drive by the Knesset
(House of Parliament) and the campus of Hebrew University.
If time permits, we may have the opportunity to visit Bethlehem to
see Rachel’s Tomb and the Church of the Nativity. After the days
sightseeing we drive back to our hotel and stay overnight in Jerusalem.
