In mid October we experienced the delights of Abboud Tours on a private tour for a group of ten. This was a full day tour from Haifa to Masada, the Dead Sea and Qumran. Transportation was on a comfortable 14 seat mini coach, with an experienced driver and our Licensed Tour guide Lesley, who was an absolute gem. The journey from Haifa to Masada through the Jordan River Valley is close on three hours, however with Lesley's fascinating, passionate and informative narration the time flashed by and we were a lot wiser on the history of the area. Masada itself is an outstanding location to visit, and we were again treated to over three hours of intricate historical details by Lesley as we toured the site. Plus the views of the Jordan River and the Dead Sea are awesome. We continued on to the Dead Sea Lido Beach area to experience the fun of swimming in the Dead Sea and enjoying being covered in lots of almost black mud.
Our return road journey was now being conducted by Abboud Maroun himself (Company Owner) as driver, and with Lesley continuing her narration with interesting inputs and insights also being provided by Abboud. Our final stop was in Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls had been discovered in the local caves. We then headed back to Haifa to re-board our Cruise ship. We would highly recommend both Abboud Tours and our guide Lesley for any type of private excursion in Israel.
