Felt awed standing outside Knesset - don't envy the difficult work going on inside. Was taken aback for a second by a woman throwing a bucket of dirty water on an official looking car - turned out to be a filming of a movie scene...More

Really nice tour of the Knesset building with history on the political structure of Israel. The Knesset's role in the government. Our guide was fantastic! The artwork in the meeting rooms and throughout the building is quite interesting as well.

We had an excellent guide and we learned what we needed to know. We loved the Chagall hangings and were fascinated to see that the main chamber was laid out like a Menorah.
