Tiberias / Golan Self Tours

I am planning to go to the Tiberias area for 2 nights and 3 days this August. Looking for recommendations on an sights to see. I am planning to do this without a tour guide so recommendations are greatly appreciated.

I know I want to do a jeep tour of the Golan area. Are there any particular companies you would recommend?

Thanks for the help.

Will you have a car? There is a lot to see around the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret) but not easily accessible by public transportation.

On your jeep tour of the Golan, don't be surprised if you see some full-sized tour busses there. It's insane the places some of these navigate to.

For the Tiberias area - Genossar and Gamla are musts. If you can stop for a meal or coffee at Beit Gavriel at Tzemach junction, it's beautiful. And of course Capernaum and Tabha.

Consider going south of Tiberius to Bet She'an, and wander through the ancient Roman city.....August heat and lack of shade would make this an early morning trip.

I know of Eretz HaGalil but there are probably more and nearer to where you will be staying.
