“Wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Always a highlight of any trip the Israel, the trip on a boat can be as prayerful, joyful, musical and funfilled as you like.

“aka Lake Tiberias”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Maybe our expectations were too high but it didn't do for us what it did for some. Took a ride on the wooden boat....was like any boat ride. Middle of the lake the captain shows how they threw nets to fish back in those days. they also have a little 'gift shop' selling trinkets and souvenirs on a collapsible table. Commercialism seems to peek through everywhere. I would definitely recommend this to the Christians as they can probably get goosebumps sailing on the lake and being where Jesus preached...but the non-Christians might not find it so.

“A Biblical Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

The Sea of Galilee isn't a sea at all, but for those pilgrims who are looking to walk in Jesus' footsteps, it's a "must visit".

Very special place and the sunrise was amazing. The water was extremely warm. People were even swimming at dawn.
