THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE in ISRAEL
Yoav Gal and his team at Isreal My Way customize every aspect of their client's trips, connecting them with Israelis from all walks of life, and striving to surprise and delight.
"Once we had a family who came to celebrate their son’s bar mitzvah in Israel. When we interviewed the parents on their hobbies to be able to customize their trip, we learned that their 16-year-old daughter was totally into Krav Maga, an Israeli martial arts. She used to exercise and compete seriously in this field. So we did some research and decided to surprise her. Apparently, the world’s female champion in Krav Maga lives in Israel.
So during the trip, one day the guide told the bus driver to stop in a very ordinary street corner. They got out of the bus and started to walk the street, where all of a sudden that girl is seeing her lifetime hero coming towards her, shaking her hand saying: 'hi, may I invite you to my studio for a one on one Krav Maga training session with me?’ The girl almost passed out… she burst into tears, and with her the whole family. This was by far the BEST experience of her life, not just on the trip."
