It wasn't really my thing but I appreciated the work the staff put into the show. I really enjoyed the music but other than that I was counting down until it was over.

This was included in our tour, it was fine for a few minutes but for us, it went on too long. I understand it dates back centuries, and it was nice to see some of their traditions.
