What is an "Eshkol vehicle"
When you see a logo of two men holding a cluster of grapes, you know you’re in good hands. This is the logo of the Israeli Ministry of Tourism and all of the “Rechev Eshkol” vehicles display this logo. The image depicts the Israelite spies carrying grapes from the Holyland (Numbers 13:23). They were the ﬁrst group to “tour” the land.
The “Eshkol” vehicles are comfortable private cars (4, 7 and 10-passenger vehicles) which are especially tailored for exploring the country. The service includes a car or van designed for touring, a licensed tourist guide and personal attention during the whole trip. These tours are created for couples, familes and small groups. With personal small tours you can travel on your own timetable and tour plan.
The “Rechev Eshkol” cars are driven by experienced licensed tour guides, trained in both an extensive knowledge of the history of the country as well as the many roads throughout.
