Haifa Port Shore Excursion: Nazareth and Sea of Galilee Day Tour from Haifa Port

By Bein Harim Tourism Services
This Nazareth and Galilee tour is for cruise ship passengers docking in Haifa. After disembarking and meeting your guide you’ll be driven to Jesus’ childhood home, Nazareth. There you will visit the Church of the Annunciation and tour the grottos under St. Joseph’s Church. The tour leaves Nazareth and passes Mary’s Well, en route to the Mount of Beatitudes. On the way, you’ll go through Kfar Kanna (Cana). Tour the church built on the Mount of Beatitudes and take in the stunning views of the Sea of Galilee below. Next, the tour takes you to Tabgha, the site of the Church of the Loaves and Fish where Jesus fed the masses. Continue to Kfar Nachum (Capernaum) which features prominently in the First Testament. The tour takes a lunch break at a local restaurant before continuing to Yardenit. This traditional baptismal site on the River Jordan is visited by Christians from across the globe. If we have time, you can get baptized at Yardenit before we return to Haifa and your cruise ship.

Our friends used Bein Harim for a shore excursion and so when we took a similar cruise we booked with them too. Good move. They are professional and organized and the bus moved off quickly to Nazareth (just half an hour’s drive). Our guide Omri was incredibly knowledgeable and was happy to answer endless questions about Christian history and the architecture of the Basilica.

We drove onto the Galilee, stopping for a group lunch (the food wasn’t bad, although you aren’t obliged to eat there) then a tour of the area, with time at the Loaves and Fishes Church, St. Peter’s, and the Mount of Beatitudes. Finally, we were taken to Yardenit, where we watched people being baptized in the Jordan river.

This is a fairly-priced tour and the company is very pleasant to deal with. We returned in good time and I am glad I took my friend’s recommendation.

Our guide Sandros was marvellous and took us on a private tour around the Sea of Galilee, Capernum, The Mount of the Beatitudes and the the Nazareth Village experience BUT there is a major concern !
If you are taking a private tour the Haifa Port Authority would not let our minivan in to the port to pick us up or leave us back. As a result we had to take the shuttle to a hotel and on our return pick up a shuttle at the port gate. Some taxi were allowed entrance, others were not. It was all very confusing and tarnished our trip.

Our guide Omry was just excellent! Spoke very clear fluent English and very well educated in both Jewish and Christian religions and did a great job of explaining details about Jewish life and traditions back in the time if Jesus. The small group of 12 that we had made this excursion more pleasant as well. Would highly recommend our guide Omry and would book this tour again.

The guide Yousef was so self focused and uneducated in the tour we felt like it was his BS show instead of wonderful tour it should be. He was easily the most narcissistic person I have ever witnessed. He told us he directed the sun and was a divine saint with demonic tendencies.

For starters, the tour was late by 25 minutes because Yousef was getting his picture taken by passengers when everyone was waiting for him.

He lied to the bus no less than 20 times.

Our first stop was at his souvenir shop for 75 minutes so he could make his commission on the riders instead of taking us on time to where we paid to be.

He would google facts after our stop to tell us whatever he could look up.

We were taken to lunch at 2:52pm on a tour that was supposed to end at 5. The lunch spot was preselected communal with a Children’s school and trailer park. We were told we only had one option for food instead of all of the thousands of food options we drove by. It was a shady buffet that paid Yousef and co under the table for taking us there.

The sites were awesome, but the guide and tour company was terrible. Please don’t take them. Go with someone who cares.

We are most regretful that this was the nature of your tour experience with our guide. We will have to get a report from him regarding his service. All group tours take lunch stops that are at one restuarant in order for the group not to disperse. Any other way is not operational or schedule oriented. We cannot let travelers move off on their own!! The tour is organised and cannot just stop along the way, This is unture and offensive to say ,you pass by thousands of cafes!! ! totally exaggerated. ! some of these comments are simply not true, but we respect your right to post what you did! Road side cafes, cannot cater for groups, in quantity or in time schedule. Sorry that you felt this way once again, as it is not the standard of service we strive for.

Different tour guide needed! I want to believe Yosef (Saint Joseph as he introduced himself) meant well and was trying to be funny but it was not. He talked about his personal trips, gave very little info about what we were seeing - AND we had no radio/earpieces with a group of 23! It is impossible to hear on busy streets with group strung out. Leaving Nazareth he said he was going to sing for us and played “let it be” by the Beatles then “just like a virgin” by Madonna. Very poor taste leaving Nazareth! At end of trip he asked if we felt we had been “touched by Jesus” or “touched by St Peter”. I don’t care what the tour guide believes - but respect my beliefs. I felt mocked.

Thanks for sharing this, as our guides need to be held accountable for their actions and behavior as well as professional input.Will certainly forward this to him for answers. This is not the level of service and interaction we want for our travelers. We are most regretful that this was the nature of your experience. Regarding earphones and mobile transmitter amplifying options. As we have 100;s of travelers daily on different tours, the actual upkeep of transmitters per group is simply not feasible we have investigated this numerous times. There is physically no way we can keep track of this, also handing out earphones to each and every traveler is not very "green" or planet friendly. Joseph will certainly be asked to answer what you have mentioned.

A knowledgable guide who focuses on talking about the place being visited rather than the guide himself.
He was sporadic with actual info about the places visited in Haifa, had no sense of time as he didnot manage the group at all, didnt plan out how long we were stopping for at any stop, took us all to a lunch place when hardly anyone wanted to eat.
Need a more aware and personable guide

Our guide Ofir was amazing! He was very knowledgeable. Ofir made the excursion one of the best. The port pick up was super easy.
The only downside was the lunch stop. We were not informed that you must pay in cash. Every meal option was $25. This left us borrowing money from friends. Skip the lunch and go into the next door mart. They sell great flatbread.

We missed the trip due to 3 hours delay of our cruise ship arriving at the Haifa port, then another 3 hours delay to clear Israel customs (major jewish holiday). We called Bein Harim from the port and they recorded us as "no show", advising us to request a refund from TripAdvisor. After returning from the cruise trip and contacting TripAdvisor, Bein Harim and TripAdvisor happily refunded us.
