Great fun, great beer, good company and wonderful views of Parliament building at night

Not worth the money. I would skip this.

A very scenic trip, we got to see all of the major landmarks at night which was beautiful. The tasting was excellent and well organized, the portions exceeded expectations! You have the option throughout the entire cruise to move around the boat for various views of the city at all angles. Would definitely recommend!

The beer selection was decent and the server attempted to be as attentive as she could, but there were only two women working multiple tables of ten or nearly ten people. Also, if you do not buy the dinner, you have a very limited menu to pick from and two complimentary baskets of tiny bread sticks.

this tour is not well known I had a private table! The cruise is made up of lots of people on different tours but you get a good attention from your hostess who explains each beer you try. After number 4 you get to pick the 5th and the 6th is a take home bottle. Good variety and time to take photos

We made it good despite the organisers. The object seemed to be power through the beers as quick as possible with no explanation or integration from the laughingly called host. Only the printed sheet gave any info 're the beers which were a good range. Not one to repeat

Cruise was tacky. Lots of tables but most were empty. Our table for the beer tasting was a table for 10, but with only 2 people on us. It was at the front of the room away from everyone else. Nice view when you went on deck.

The cruise was nice and gave a good view over the river, city and shore. Tried a good selection of Hungarian beer but there were no real beer tasting experience as the guide only came to pour the beer and tell us a few things about it.

I thought we were going to be cruising on a small boat filled with people beer tasting. It turns out you are on a large boat that one-half is having a buffet dinner and the other half is filled with wine tasting and more eating then our one table that is beer tasting. Our tour was at 7:00 p.m. and was expecting a little food to nibble after tasting all the beer. No such luck. Was a few bread sticks and all the good smells coming from the buffet tables. There was plenty of beer and you did get to take one bottle of the beer you selected home with you. It was okay a lot of beer and no food. We did get to meet a really sweet couple from Brazil so that was fun.

Really cool! The beers were really good and the staff was friendly! The boat ride was so pretty!
