M-819:  Education and Relaxation Tour

Tour Overview

Day 1 - Sunday: Welcome to Israel!

You will be greeted at the airport by a representative from Mazada Tours.

Transfer to accommodations in Tel Aviv.

Day 2 - Monday: Holy Land Sites of Galilee

After pick-up at your hotel, you will drive along the coastal road and landscape of the lower Galilee to Nazareth, where Jesus spent his childhood. Here, you will visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, where an angel is said to have appeared to Mary to tell her that she would give birth to Jesus. You will also visit the Church of St. Joseph while in Nazareth, which is built in the Romanesque Revival style.

Next, you will continue to Tiberias, located on the Western Shore of the Galilee. Tiberias is known as one of Judaism’s four holy cities and is a meaningful location for Jewish and Christian pilgrimage.

Drive along the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum, where you will view the ruins of the ancient synagogue where Jesus taught. From here, you will travel to Tabgha and visit the church where the Miracle of Fish and Loaves occurred.

Your final stop on this tour will be the famous baptismal site of Yardenit, where the Jordan River flows out from the Sea of Galilee to the Dead Sea. Take a moment to reflect at this site and enjoy the tranquil setting before returning to your hotel.

Day 3 - Tuesday: Dead Sea Relaxation

If you are craving a day of relaxation at the lowest place on Earth, this tour is for you! We will pick you up at your hotel and drive through the Judean desert to the Dead Sea.

You will stop at a Dead Sea cosmetic shops which features skin care products made of the famous Dead Sea mud and minerals. These products are suitable for a variety of skin types and are touted for their natural deep-cleaning, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties.  Here, you can feel free to purchase any products you would like to use in your day of pampering on the seashore.

Next, you will continue on for a day of floating in the Dead Sea. Cover yourself in the mineral-rich therapeutic mud.

Afterwards, thoroughly refreshed, you will return to your hotel.

Day 4 - Wednesday: Jerusalem Old and New City

After being picked up from your hotel, start your Jerusalem Old & New Day Tour with a view of the Mount of Olives and Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus spent his last night before the crucifixion. You will then enter the walls of the Old City by foot. Taking the narrow winding streets through the Armenian and Jewish Quarters, you will walk the 1,500-year-old Cardo road.

Continue to the Kotel, also known as the Western Wall or the Wailing Wall, where you will be able to feel the ancient stones beneath your fingertips and feel free to place handwritten notes between the cracks*.

After this, you will walk the Via Dolorosa, known as the path that Jesus walked during the crucifixion and marked by the Stations of the Cross. You will arrive to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where Jesus was crucified, buried, and is believed to have been resurrected.

Next, you will proceed to Yad Vashem, where you will explore a more recent event in history: The Holocaust. Whereas many Holocaust museums across the country leave people in despair, Yad Vashem’s final message is one of hope and looking to the future, ending on a balcony with a panoramic view of Jerusalem. Please note that on Saturday’s and Jewish holidays, Yad Vashem is closed. Thus, on these days you will instead visit Ein Karem, known as the birthplace of John the Baptist.

After your tour, you will be returned to your hotel for overnight.

*NOTE: Modest dress (no shorts or sleeveless shirts) and head covering are required for visiting holy places such as the Western Wall.

Day 5 - Thursday: Departure

Check out of your hotel and transfer to Ben Gurion airport for your departure.
