Spend some time meditating at the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus delivered his famous sermon, and continue to Tabgha to visit the Church of the Multiplication, where Jesus fed 5,000 people with two fish and five loaves. On to Caesarea-Philippi (Banias), location of one of the springs of the Jordan River, where Jesus taught his disciples. Today's Distance: 31 mi / 50 km (B/D)

This morning, stop in Cana, site of Jesus' first miracle when he turned water into wine at a wedding.

Visit the Church of all Nations, located next to the garden, then enter through St. Stephen's Gate and arrive at the Pool of Bethesda. Follow in Jesus' footsteps along the Way of the Cross to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Great trip through Israel and the side trip to Jordan (mainly Petra) was excellent. 6 , NSW , Australia, May 2017
I thoroughly enjoyed my tour of Israel and the tour director was fun and entertaining. Our tour left our hotel by 7.45 each morning and didn't return until around 6'ish so it was quite hectic. I would have appreciated if the tour was a day longer with a free day or half day to do my own thing. All breakfasts and dinners were all included in the tour cost which was really good.

I was disappointed in the optional excursion to the Dead Sea as this a part of the trip I was really looking forward to but by the time we had lunch and spent time shopping (which none of us were really keen to do) we only had 1 hour to enjoy our experience of the Dead Sea. Also, and my fault entirely, I didn't realise how religious the tour was going to be. I thought there would be a bit of religion as were visiting the Holy Land but it was full on with quite a few extremely religious people on the tour. I should maybe have booked an historical or archaeological tour.

Petra in Jordan was fantastic, but again, my travelling buddies and I, would have enjoyed an extra day in Petra.
