I love Tiberias. It is a town of character and its location is beautiful on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is nice to go for a walk in the evenings to observe everything and the ways of the Israelis.

Recently booked a private boat tour with Galilee Sailing in Tiberias. David- excellent english- was informative, funny and played happy music for us (as he is a musician as well). Highly recommend using them either private or with a group. Joey and David - brothers- own company and can be reached at email: joey@galileesailing.com or 972-50-9397000 (Joey's mobile).

Laced with ruins and history, Tiberias draws crowds from various parts of Israel and the world. You will see everything from the conservative orthodox to modern day dress and traditions. Like any resort, it is crowded and noisy, except on the Sabbath which begins just before sunset on Friday until Saturday evening. Don't count on finding many, if any, open... More

The town itself is not much to write about, but the great beaches around the sea, the wonderful food and lovely views of the sea make the stay worthwhile. It has a very nice boardwalk with a audio-visual show which is viewed well especially at evening time with the sea as a backdrop. In addition it is a great launch... More

Extreme heat in summer makes it very uncomfortable to walk around the town. Best to visit during the winter months. Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants in the area. There is a pedestrian walkway along Lake Kinneret, but you can only do this in the late evening without melting away.

tiberias needs a total overhaul,on the journey there was an misleading article from the mayor of tiberias,saying how wonderful histown is.SO UNTRUE.it lacks character,it smells of rubbish as some people are incapable of disposing of their rubbish in the correct way.the promenade is falling apart,the public toilets are disgusting.the music on the promenade loud and horrible.

If you’re looking for something to do that would give you thrills and chills during your vacation in Israel, try zip-lining and snappling( Israeli version of rappelling) at the Omega Park located in the North of Israel, Manara Cliff, Tzuk Manara around Tiberias. A zip line, called “omega” in Hebrew, is created by suspending a pulley on a cable that... More

Tiberius is not a holy site as such for a pilgrim but it is ideally situated for anyone visiting the northern part of the Holy Land. The town itself is steeped in history and many of the old ruins look even older as they are constructed with black rocks. There are many restaurants, hotels, guesthouses and shops. The shore areas...

We had made some bad experience with taxi drivers when we entered Israel at the Jordan River crossing on a Saturday. There was only one driver and he overcharged us for the trip from the border to Tiberias (400 shekel!). The fare should have been around 200 to 250 shekel, but since he was the only driver on a Shabat... More
