Once in Budapest what you will definitely need to do is a Pub Crawl since Budapest is famous for it big variety of Pubs, cheap bear and hard shots. If you do it on your own or organized is up to you, the best is anyways if you know somebody in Budapest who knows the hot spots of the night to get some glasses of beer and a few spirits. If you go out in Budapest on a normal friday or saturday night in the summer time you find a lot of groups popping into the bar to grab a beer and move on. These groups are either stag parties or organized Pub Crawls that want to see as many Pubs in one night as possible and have a drink everywhere.
Why a Pub Crawl?
In Pub Crawls like this you see many different bars, beautiful girls and hear a lot of good music while having your glass of beer and moving on after a little while. Usually when getting on a crawl in a big group after some time people get lost in bars because they have met a good looking Hungarian girl or just think that this place is the most fun. So in the end of you Pub Tour half of the people are still together, the rest is somewhere all over the city but I think that belongs to a successful night out in Budapest.
Organized Pub Crawls are usually very much stick to the timing but therefore the drinks, or at least the first couple of them, are paid by the organizer and you have somebody taking care of you during the crawl so you can be sure that you do not get ripped off or enter the wrong bars. On the other hand most of the pubs you visit are the typical tourist destinations such as Szimpla Kert or Instant, the famous ruin pubs which everybody wants to see and is fascinated by.
If you book a Pub Crawl Budapest until October 31st you will get 10% off the original price which is 13,50€. This Crawl takes around 3,5 hours and includes a minimum of 4 pubs to visit including a welcome drink in each of them, you can choose between beer or shot whatever you prefer. You will also be guided by a local guide who takes you around and tells you some things about the pubs you visit. What is not included is the public transportation tickets which you need to buy yourself (the guide will help you) and the hotel pickup, so you need to get to the first pub yourself.
