About E.D.I.

Experience Destination Israel in your own unique way.

Specializing in incoming Jewish and Christian tourism from North America, E.D.I. combines two decades of professional travel and guiding experience with fresh and innovative touring ideas to provide you with an extraordinary Israel experience.

Founded by veteran tour guide Boaz Shalgi, E.D.I. takes special pride in the company’s one-stop service: we handle all of your transportation, accommodation and touring needs from the minute you set foot in Israel until the moment you leave for home.

From our carefully-selected cadre of tour guides to our customized itineraries, we make sure that every detail of your trip is tailored to your personal wishes. Whether you are a first-time traveler looking for a classic tour of Israel, a return visitor in search of an offbeat encounter, a sports or outdoor buff seeking for the next great adventure, or a family with a diverse range of interests hoping to satisfy all ages, E.D.I. goes that extra mile to make your trip an unforgettable one.

You can choose from our unique selection of tours or we will create one especially for you. Israel, a country bursting with history, archeology, nature reserves, ethnic customs and cultures, science and technology, performing and visual arts, wine and cuisine, is yours for the asking. And if you want one more special item, that unexpected encounter, we also offer all E.D.I. travelers an opportunity to participate in “E.D.I. Extras” where we take you behind the scenes of one of several Israeli experiences.

We are creative in our approach; exceptional in our service. We maintain the highest standards of quality control and commitment to our clients. Come to Israel; take a rest from the stress of your daily life and rest assured that your visit will be managed in the most exciting and effective way, giving you a trip of a lifetime.

Keeping with E.D.I.’s creative approach to touring, we offer all our customers “E.D.I. Extras” – a special behind the scenes glimpse of one of many fascinating elements of Israeli life. This can include personal encounters with Israelis, visits to ethnic villages, special tours through Israel’s arts and designer quarters, food and wine tasting excursions, volunteering in a tzedaka project or working at an archaeological dig. Wherever your personal interest lies, we will find that added experience to make your visit unique and memorable.

E.D.I. Team

Boaz Shalgi
General Manager
Boaz Shalgi, General Manager of EDI Travel, is a seventh generation Israeli with a passion for his country and an urge to share its spectacular history, culture, sights and sounds with visitors from abroad. Boaz, who grew up in the winding streets of Jerusalem, spent six of his childhood in Nigeria where his father was employed. It was there that he developed an early passion for travel. After serving in an IDF combat unit, in 1995 Boaz became a licensed tour guide. Turning his love of the land and enthusiasm for history into a thriving career, Boaz has spent the last 15 years taking hundreds of individuals and groups around Israel, gaining lifelong friends who are a testimony to his extraordinary professionalism, vast knowledge and warm personality. Tourism comes naturally to the Shalgi family. Boaz's mother Nurit worked as a tour operator for more than three decades and his wife Maggie spent many years as an organizer of international conferences. Both are today engaged with Boaz in the EDI enterprise, adding motivation and skills to the company profile.
