Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell took to Instagram on Friday morning to describe his trip to Israel after performing three shows in the Ra'anana Amphitheater this week with his fellow members of the 90's iconic boy band.

"Headed back from Israel this morning.... What an amazing time," he wrote.

After deciding to cancel their trip in light of the start of  Operation Protective Edge last summer, the Backstreet Boys promised heartbroken fans they would reschedule. True to their word the group honored their pledge and came to Israel as part of their In a World Like This global 2015 tour.

The band took advantage of their time in Israel, visiting various tourist attractions including Masada, Caesaria, the Jordan River, various holy sites in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

"The history/sights/loving people/and food....... Wow!! If you haven't been, I encourage you to go... It is life changing.... What a wonderful place," wrote Littrell.

Brian thanked the fans for their hospitality and said he looks forward to coming back to visit again.
