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.

Abboud was the only company in Haifa who could take our group of 13 on short notice to the airport. When our group became 11, Abboud told us it wasn't our fault and that he would still honor our original price. It was a breath of fresh air to find an honest and trustworthy company when we had challenges with price gouging with other companies. Look no further than Abboud for your transportation and travel needs when in Israel.

3 days off a cruise ship docked in Haifa--arranged beforehand to have Mr Abboud tour us in Jerusalem and also to Bethlehem. We were met on time in Haifa-7:30am as we got off the ship. Our guide was Noor--an Arab Christian with the knowledge and reverence for the area and the perfect personality to tour 4 non observant Jews around! We had a comfortable VW a/c van and were delighted with the comfort and security. We went to Rosh Hanrika on the Lebanon/Israel border---there are actual gates that are closed between the 2 countries.
We also traveled to Bethlehem, a major surprise for all of us. It was clean, calm and beautiful. Had to change guides in order to get into Bethlehem-saw the places where Jesus was born and buried; stood in a square that was bounded by the Church of the Nativity, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and also had Muslim Prayers going on; discovered the best marzipan in the world imported to Bethlehem from Poland; ate bananas bought in Bethlehem and then dined at a restaurant called the Grotto--a typical restaurant with many small dishes and beef, lamb and chicken BBQ. A wonderful experience considering we were in port during the sabbath where most everything is closed.

I was in Israel for an extended stay and took a number of trips with Abboud, some with groups as big as 12 or 15 people and one memorable day when he took just my daughter and me on a personal itinerary in the north of Israel. Not only did we always get the tour we paid for, but I cannot tell you how many times Abboud did something helpful and beyond the call of duty. I have seen him exhibit honesty and generosity beyond what anyone would have been expected. He is trilingual in Arabic, Hebrew and English, and he knows the cultures to match each language. Above all, he sincerely wants to provide every visitor with the best possible experience.

This summer, 3 families (children raging in ages 10 to 17) traveled to Israel for a combined bar/bat mitzvah ceremonies. Abboud tours provided transportation for several trips (Masada/Dead Sea, Jordan River, and the Galilee) we took during our stay in Israel. The bus was brand new and extremely comfortable and cool. Abboud was very friendly, accommodating, generous, and punctual. Our tour guide in Israel Deena Clayman (0507593315) recommended Abboud Tours as one of the premier transportation companies there. She was absolutely correct!
We had a trip of a lifetime! Thanks to Deena and Abboud, whose services were second to none!
