The guys in the Backstreet Boys may not be "boys" anymore, but during their various "reunion" tours over the past few years, they've proven they still have their late-'90s voices and dance moves intact. And during a visit to Israel this week, they're having a whole lot of fun, too.

After a stop in Australia, the group came to Israel a few days ahead of three concerts this week at the Ra'anana Ampitheater, located about 40 miles north of Tel Aviv. The Backstreet Boys did some sightseeing and went on adventures, including exploring Israel's largest city on Segways (which aren't in the picture, but trust us... that must have been a sight to see):

Then they went to Masada National Park, celebrating that they finished the climb to the top of the hills there:

Getting dirty!

Then they took a dip in the Dead Sea, smearing mud all over themselves to prove that they weren't just anywhere. Hey, it keeps the skin looking young, right?

Then it was showtime, and it looks like the crowd was into it, as this Instagram video shows:

This fantastic shot from backstage showed the boys coming out to an enthusiastic crowd:

Here are fan-shot videos of two BSB classics, "I Want It That Way" and "Larger Than Life":
