I think that any Christian is going to enjoy the way the knowledgeable guide presents this. Make sure you have arrangements to go here and don't just show up since they require you to have a guide and you don't want to be turned away.

We were pleased at how well the village is presented. It all seemed so authentic. The guide was great and very knowledgable. It was a positive experience with a strong Christian perspective. Call ahead if you're on your own, as it's only possible to go in with a group. They were very accommodating about us joining a tour group to... More

I insist that everyone I bring or send to the Holy Land visit Naz Village early in their trip. It's amazing how often we refer to things during the rest of the trip that we see and learn there.

If you are looking for a relaxed, accurate, and educational tour of what a 1st century village might have looked like, this is the place! There is so much you can learn! To be able to see what kind of context Jesus grew up in was such an eye-opening experience! It's beautiful not only to the eye but also to... More

Monuments and churches impress in their own ways, but the land itself is sacramental. In Nazareth Village we have not just commemorative sites, but the very undamaged geography across which the boy Jesus would certainly have run and played and worked. Archeological work has established that it is a farm from the first century. Local residents bring this rural geography... More

My kids thought this was the best site in our 5 day trip to Israel and Palestine. The hour long tour was great. The guide, Henry, was knowledgable and interesting. He was good with the kids. The actors around the village really help to bring the site to life. If you're interesting in understanding the bible and what life was... More

This is new and excellent. Right in the shadow of where Jesus came from, they give a great tour on the culture and history of that day. The guides were outstanding. Some in our group thought it was the highlight of their Israel tour.

We stopped by Nazareth Village as it was highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. It gives one the experience of a village during the time of Jesus. The tour guide was very good and was excited about the experience in the village. The best thing that I liked was seeing a representation of the synagogue where Jesus spoke and sat... More
