This was an interesting experience and the Ruin Bars are quite amazing. I didn't love the drinks that were offered as complementary at a couple of the places on this tour, but regardless we enjoyed this!

Didn't really know what to expect but it wasn't what I imagined. Some reviews said go hungry but we only ate at one bar and it was 2 small tacos. Definitely not filling enough. There was only one other person on the tour so lacking in the fun factor also.

Really enjoyed this trip. A fabulous way to see and learn about the city. Our tour guide Daniel was very knowledgable and made this tour extremely interesting.

This was a fun addition to my trip to Budapest. Our guide, Ferenc, was great. He shared a lot of information about the Jewish district as went along. There is so much history behind the district where the Ruin Bars are, which makes this experience a unique one in that you are learning a bit about the history while going from bar to bar. I would highly recommend this tour!

I did not get to go on this tour, my plane was delayed I tried to call the tour people to let them know I was stuck in Finland and could not make the tour, the first time I got thru they hung up on me the second time I got their answering machine, the third try I spoke to a man who told me I might be able to take the tour the next day and that they would call me back shortly. I also emailed them thru their outnumbered web address that was provided on my receipt. I called them again later that day to confirm but no one answered, nor did they return any of my calls. So I got stuck in an airport due to weather, then got no response from the tour people After they said they would call me back and I was out the money I prepaid for 2 people.

If you enjoy seeing the nightlife of the city, meet new friends, and throw back some palinka, this is ideal. I can't say more positive things about this tour or the tour guide, Ferenc. I'd post some pictures, but I was having too much fun. I'll have my wife post a few on Twitter. Ferenc partied with us through the ruin bars and stayed out with us after the tour ended. Crazy fun. Met some amazing people from Australia on the tour. Hard to select a favorite bar, but Pharma was excellent... they make you a customized cocktail. How could you want anything more. Fantastic tour.
