Our Staff

Yoav Gal – Founder, Co-owner and CEO

Yoav Gal, along with other activities, has been organizing tours in Israel for 15 years before he decided to devote all of his time to his passion, and founded Israel My Way. Yoav’s vision has made Israel My Way unique in Israel’s tour industry and each tour, long or short, whether to Jerusalem, the Galilee or the Negev, is meticulously planned and coordinated down to the smallest of details. Each and every tour carries the stamp of Yoav’s love for and attachment to this land.

Edna Gal – Finance Manager and Co-owner

Edna holds a degree in international relations and is formerly a practicing lawyer. She joined Yoav in founding Israel My Way and now serves as the Finance Manager. In addition to this, Edna helps to maintain the values and vision of the company and assists in ensuring that our high standards of service are met. She and her family live in Haifa. 

Orit Meiron-Rapaport – Chief Tour Coordinator

Orit was born in Israel, and in addition to being a certified travel agent, she graduated the Tadmor Hotel School, as well as the Tourism School at Haifa University. She lives in a beautiful small village in the mountains of Galilee, is married with 3 children, and is in love with hiking the country, music, cinema, and theater.
Orit orchestrates the dozens (sometimes hundreds) of details that make up a successful tour – booking hotel rooms, coordinating those special activities, and creating a true experience for our clients.

Emily Bock – Tour Coordinator

Emily grew up in Australia, and made Israel her home in 2005 - after over a decade of active involvement in a Zionist youth movement. With an arts degree plus a certification in holistic nutrition and herbal medication under her belt, Emily realized that she's at her happiest showing people the unique culture and treasures of Israel. She lives with her partner and daughter in Kibbutz Mishol, the country's largest Urban Kibbutz.

Eric Tomer – Director of Marketing, French Market

Eric was born in Israel, and is married with 3 children. He served in the Israeli Army and in the Prime Minister’s Office for over 25 years before becoming a tour guide. He loves Israel, and especially loves sharing the beauty of it with visitors. Eric is a warm, friendly and extremely knowledgeable guide, so don’t hesitate to ask him questions about anything.

We want you to see Israel YOUR way.
That׳s why we don׳t have regular,
״off the shelf״ tours.
