The nighttime bike tour was our favourite part of the trip.. I believe it was through BudaBike. Szimpla Kert was also really interesting and fun! We went to Margaret Island and rented one of those four-wheeled bicycles and had a ridiculously fun time. The shopping we did was in the main town square, I don’t recall the name, unfortunately. I have nothing to add on the other bits as we didn’t go to a thermal bath and we found the food to be lackluster pretty much everywhere we ate. Nevertheless, Budapest remains my SO’s favourite city that we have visited.

I loved touring the Parliament. If I visit again, I want to see the “Shoes on the Danube” memorial.

Budapest is amazing! I would do the Szechenyi baths, they are the more traditional ones and are really interesting. Personally I felt it was a bit of a waste going to the more modern ones. The park outside the baths is amazing.

I would also walk up to Buda castle, also the hospital in the rock museum was a lot better than I expected. 

If you’re into wine here is a great wine tasting place up near the castle, it’s in the underground vaults and it was the single best thing I did in Budapest.

Its really cheap in Budapest so go to a Hungarian restaurant and order everything just to try it.

Also get the metro just to see the underground stations and trains, they are absolutely beautiful.

I love Budapest! It is one of my favourite cities and I love just having a walk, having (amazing) coffee in a cafe, just being in the city.

Gellert and Szechenyi are the most famous and both well worth a visit. My favourite is Kiraly, it is much smaller and older, beautiful and a great contrast to the larger baths: http://www.bathsbudapest.com/kiraly-bath 

Another nice tip is going for a beer and some food at the ruin bars. https://ruinpubs.com

happytravls :  It was a guided tour; we spent about an hour there. I don’t think you’d need more than an hour, although I’m not sure how much of it is open to the public.
