The Mules very smart. It was ok, but wouldn't pay $40 per person again. I guess I was expecting something more for $40 and it's an hour of stopping and slow talking.

Learning the history of the city and seeing the old buildings was really cool. I would suggest another speaker for the very back because it was very hard to hear.
