    Our driver was extremely late in picking us up that I had to ring the emergency number supplied to check if it at all he was coming. He eventually arrived. We were so relieved to see him. He apologised for being late and stated that it was due to the fact that he had been given the wrong hotel to pick up the other couple whom were joining us from Jerusalem. We got started with our journey/ trip. Our first stop was the Church of Transfiguration Mount Tabor. It was amazing to enter the church and to be at the site where it is traditionally believed that Jesus was transfigured and spoke with the prophet Moses and Elijah. We were able to do our prayers and see also the amazing view of the Jezreel Valley. From there we visited Nazareth to see the church of Annunciation where the angel Gabriel informed Mary that she would bear a child. We also visited the Church of St Joseph where Joseph did his carpentry. Underneath the church is a synagogue where Jesus preached and studied. Our guide did not want to take us to Mount of Beatitudes because he thought that it was not part of the itinerary, but after speaking to his tour manager he agreed, but unfortunately it was closed, so was Tabgha the site of the multiplication of the loaves. Better luck next time. We visited Capernaum the Town of Jesus as our final stop. Thank God it was open. We were able to visit and see the remains of the ancient synagogue where Jesus preached and areas where he performed various miracles. We also saw the statue of Peter holding the key to the Kingdom of heaven as well as the house of Peter and the church built above Peter's house. We enjoyed all the sites we were able to see and the amazing views and history. We hope to book with Viator again to visit Mount of Beatitudes and Tabgha on our next visit to israel. We would like to thank our tour guide for giving us a wonderful and memorable experience on this trip.

    I wont give this tour a 5 rating only because I didnt realize that wed be spending our time visiting a lot of Catholic churches that were built on top of historical sites. For some people thats exactly what they want but I didnt come to Israel to visit Catholic churches so maybe that should be made a little more clear in the tour information. Unfortunately Ive discovered that many of the tours are like that. Also, I would have also liked to have had a few moments in some of the more significant sites just to reflect a little bit on that significance but time constraints didnt allow for it. Beyond those two things our guide was excellent and had a wealth of knowledge and experience. I learned a great deal about the history of the various areas we visited. Overall it was a very good tour.

    Our guide Ido was both friendly and knowledgeable. He also needed to talk in Spanish as well as English as one couple was from Colombia. We mentioned the areas we were interested in and he organised the tour to meet our needs. Having a smaller tour vehicle allowed us to drive to the top of Mt Tabor making it easier. Driving to Nazareth Ido was able to give us first hand knowledge as his parents came from near the Jordan river. Stopping for lunch at the Abu Khaled restaurant was a pleasant surprise as the food was delicious and keenly priced. The local attractions of the church of annunciation and Joseph the carpenter were interesting. Driving to the Galilee was special as visiting Tagbha and Capernaum the highlight. Peters house was facinating and we could stroll beside the sea of Galilee. The trip home to Tel Aviv was lengthy due to traffic issues but Ido was up to the job.
    We would definately recommend this trip to others.

    While this was a very good tour and our tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of the tour group members, the number of places to visit was rather ambitious for the amount of time available and size of the geographic area to be covered. We would give the guide five stars for what we learned from him, we kept the overall tour rating at four stars because of there being so much to see in just one day.
