What to do for 1 day - Galilee

We will be staying at Kibbutz Maagan Holiday Village in mid-March. Can you recommend what to do for 1 day for 3 people.

2. Re: What to do for 1 day - Galilee

We stayed there last year with our 8-day essential Israel tour with Gate1 travel. This is what we did which may or may not be to your liking. We rented a car in Tiberias, The tour bus dropped us off in Tiberias on their way to the optional tour that we opted out of. We are Christians and wanted to see different areas around the Sea of Galilee. We had a wonderful time and ended the day getting baptized in the Jordan River. We are doing the same tour again in a few weeks but with 2 additional people. This time we rented a car from the same place although we are based out of Tiberias this time. We plan to catch a few places we missed last year. One of the things we are looking forward to is the boat tour on the Sea of Galilee. I hope this was helpful!

A boat journey onto the Sea of Galilee (in season)could leave from Tiberias on the western shore or Ein GeV on the eastern shore.

If you love nature sights visit Agamon Hahula http://www.agamon-hula.co.il/?lang=en_US You can join a guided tour either early in the morning or late afternoon in half covered truck to see the birds and other animals waking or going to sleep. Highly recommended experience.

One needs a car to get to just about any of these places, especially the last two that have been recommended.

The boats run all year round unless there is stormy weather. They depart from the Decks restaurant, the Lido Beach, both in Tiberias, Ein Gev and Ginosar. You must call in advance to see if a group has hired a boat ride and then you can join it when they say it is possible. It is hard to suggest places to visit without knowing where you were or will be going to. No sense in repeat visiting when you have only one day.

Thanks for all the help. It seems we are best to rent a car for the day. Some of the destinations we were thinking about are Capernum, Golan Heights and Safed unless there is another priority. We also were thinking of including a one hour Galilee Sea tour. Is this feasible for one day with a car?

Where do we call about this. I was given a $100 charge for an hour for a Galilee Sea tour with Galilee Sailing. We are hoping to minimize our costs while seeing as much as possible in our day. Thanks.
