This trip was an early start, complimentary pick up is from the hotel, in our case from Jerusalem, we were ready for pick up at 0550am, after a phone call to the company we got picked up eventually at 0630am and then travelled to several other hotels to collect people for other tours before heading to Tel aviv where the tour started. Setting off late the first stop was a cafe for 1/2 hour? whether there is an arrangement between the companies I don't know however, read on. We passed Canna and Mt Carmel on the way to Nazareth. On arrival at Nazareth we then stopped at a shop selling tourist tat for another 30 minutes, what made it worse was that it was priced 4-5 times more than in Jerusalem too! as we were already running late it didn't go down too well. We visited several biblical locations here before heading to the river Jordan and Yardenit. We had a picnic by the river Jordan which was nice and had around 1 hour here, on returning to the coach, people were late, again and we ended up waiting before we set off to Tiberias and Galilee/ Capernaum before heading back to Tel Aviv via Armageddon. Back in Tel Aviv we then proceeded to drop off at hotels before getting back to Jerusalem at 2050 hrs, a long day indeed. The coach was air conditioned and the guide Ben, was extremely knowledgeable, giving a good commentary throughout. The tour group needs a policy for late returners however as it was the same Americans that kept everyone waiting throughout the trip, the consensus was that they should've been left behind as they continued to be late after 4 warnings. The trip was great apart from this and the drop offs and the tour guide was excellent. I would however agree a price for a taxi private tour next time due to the delays both with the bus being late and people who don't mind messing up everyone else's day out. There were great photo opportunities, and it is a great tour, but with problems.

    The main church in Nazareth had some fantastic pieces of art depicting Mary. Various countries had exhibited, and it was a real treat to see the different interpretations.
