Good beer - annoying gypsy band
The beer was really good. Our personal waiter gave us 1 bottle for 2 persons each beer.

But if you have the toor at 6 P.M., most likely you will be surrounded by a gypsy band. They make pretty cool music, but really (really!) beg for money and annoy. The frontman of the band came to all the people and played his violine 15 centimeters next to the peoples faces to scrounge some money. He even showed me a banknote as an instruction for me, that he wants money. That was too invasive.
Absolutely amazing
Very pleasant cruise. We did take one in the afternoon so we were the only ones taking the tour which meant that we got the bottles all to ourself.
The woman bringing the beers is very friendly and answered all our questions.
Also the number of beers you get is the same as in the evening but the tour is half an hour less, so beware because you have to drink the same amount but in a shorter amount of time.

Definitely something I would recommend doing when visiting Budapest.
Nice experience
The cruise was nice and service good. Seeing Budapest from the Danube was great.

The only negative thing was that: Different quality beers should be served from different clean beer-glasses; not all beers from same glass.

Next visit in Budapest we will for sure attend the Wine-tasting cruise : )

Thanks / Köszönöm,

Event was so bad, I want my money back!
There were only 4 of us stuck at a large table in the middle of a dinner cruise. The hostess only brought over a small amount of beer every 20 minutes to make the tasting last the length of the dinner cruise. We asked her to sped up and she wouldn't. We would have liked to try all the beer in appropriate time frame to choose which one would have like to drink for the rest of the cruise. We were only given our final beer as we docked. Very poorly done.

We weren't told that this would be combined with other tours or there was too few of us. We have have changed our reservation. We would have joined the wine tasting as they were getting attention from the staff.
Craft beer cruise
Great night, great view and brilliant beers. Peter who lead the beer tasting for us was great, helpful and friendly, top bloke. Recommend the porter and flying rabbit
