The tour actually began on the Sunday evening (14th) with a coach trip to the Ilzer Brewery in Monor about 30 minutes by road from Budapest. Whilst we could have gone by rail, the coach was used as there was the small matter of transporting the 300 bottles of beer back to Budapest that were being bought for sale on the train! Here are a handful of images from the evening.

General view of the room where we ate our meal. As can be seen the serious drinkers were already in place for the evening!
A view of the room after we'd demolished a nice "pig-yourself" meal.
A further view of the room assembled masses.
Our coach registration included the initials of another well  known tour operator!
