This event was billed as up to 50 people, but the organizers said they expected 100 people to show up, which was WAY too large. It also felt like a bit of a money-grab. The "shots" that are included with the admission fee were about the size of a thimble; drink deals at each location threaten to $10-you to death. Not only that, women on the tour have no protections from slobbery, drunken men putting their hands all over them, and several were seriously harrassing a young woman we met on the pub crawl. We went as a couple, but the woman we befriended could not get certain guys to stop grabbing her. We had to step in and help her get away, and the tour "guides" -- who were a bit obnoxious themselves -- did nothing to stop it, or at the very least enforce CONSENSUAL behavior and boot the bums out. I'm all for a good time, but I can see how this kind of event could result in assault, or worse. I was hoping for a fun evening out with a smaller group to meet new people. That was definitely NOT what I found here. Kind of a disappointment.
