Our guide Dani maybe a nice guy but his knowledge and his English was limited. The driver of the bus was very unfriendly, Could not be bothered to make people on the bus more comfortable., until tip time came.

This tour left a lot to be desired. It is a very, very long trip - about 14 hours as there is always traffic going back into Tel Aviv. You spend maybe 3-4 hours total off the bus, the rest is travel. Nazareth was just a modern church, not very impressive. You do not get to stroll around the town but instead are taken to a "Christian" store where you know that it is a tourist trap as the prices are in dollars instead of shekels! The store is supposed to be the bathroom stop but it is just another overpriced scam. Such a waste of time. The Jordan River is another shopping experience where most of it is a huge tourist store. You get to see a small portion of the dirty river and those that want to be "baptized" get to spend a ton of money buying a robe and being allowed into the river! That's scam #2. The Sea of Galilee is just that, a short stop to view the lake. In short you are better off going somewhere else.
