How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
The cruise was 3 hours each way to the Bear Mountain State Park, and the guide was knowledgeable about the history of the river and riverside cities/towns, but had a monotonous voice (like that of NPR). The Oktoberfest was pretty boring (no activities, except for live band)and the food was not good (sauerbraten was too dry). There was no German music; mostly contemporary. The beer, however, was good that included beer from Spaten, Stiegl, and others. You could get a stein for $22 and refills for $9. There was a lake at Bear Mountain, which was peaceful and serene. It was nice to sit by the lake and drink a liter of beer.

Help others enjoy a great night out
