This was a very spiritual site for us as it was a place where Jesus taught and was the center of his ministry. We were blessed to have an extremely knowledgeable guide and 5 pastors traveling with us who brought the biblical history to life.

The Galilee shore area is beautiful and peaceful. Nonetheless I’m not really sure about this portrayal. I didn’t think it was worth a drive as long. Do so as part of a tour targeting the south Galilee Tiberias area

This is where Christ visited in Peter’s home and healed the man lowered through the roof. The flying saucer chapel that now covers the Home is truly unique and allows for a straight look to the inside of the house. Set on the edge of...More
