Last week I saw the tired horse hauling the carriage of tourists around town mid-day when it was not fit for anyone to exert themselves due to extreme temperatures/humidity. The horse should never have been forced to work that day. :(

They seem to go every 10-20 minutes. No, we didn't make reservations. There was a man with his son who was handicapped on our carriage. They didn't charge him for his son, I thought that was nice.
