Haifa shore excursion to the Galilee and back


This tour is truly special - it will take you to the ancient heart of history, religion and the natural beauty of the area surrounding the incomparable Sea of Galilee. Starting with a pick up from your cruise ship we'll travel east towards the city named for the Roman emperor Tiberius. The tour begins with a stunning lookout point high on the Arbel cliff national park for a commanding view of much of the lower Galilee, the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights. During the day-long tour you'll visit fascinating historic and religious sites crucial to Jewish and Christian history, hear some little-known stories of the region and it's people, dine at a local sea-side restaurant and if you choose, take a dip in the Sea of Galilee.
