What are the Budapest spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

The Jewish district with all the small bars and cafés. Secondly, the promenade of the Danube with all the beautiful sights around.

Do’s and don’ts in Budapest: (Ex: Tipping: yes/ no, public transport tips, safety tips etc.):

Once you buy a public transport ticket, it is for only one way and it has to be validated on the vehicle inmediately. Budapest is safe, just watch your valuables when you are using public transport, especially on the trams.

What do you do and why do you do it?

I m a Tour guide. I love being with people 😌 It means happiness for me, helping and showing people around in Budapest.

How much do you spend on an average night out on the town?

€60. which includes a nice dinner, some drinks. Usually, this amount is less. Budapest is quite cheap regarding prices that you see in bars.

Your all-time favorite musicians:

John Legend.

Which neighborhood is it best to experience during the day / night?

Daytime: 5th district with the main squares, the shopping street, Basilica, the Parliament. The night time in the 7th district is amazing because of the bars and small restaurants.

What’s the one place in Budapest you think is underrated?

Many of the nice restaurants, actually. Tripadvisor top rated places are ok, but I found Many that are amongst #100-200, are still very nice.

Where would you take a date for a romantic night out?

I would book a table at a Rooftop bar and enjoy the wide panorama from above. Make sure to book a table before you arrive.

It's freeeeezing out - what should a visitor do?

Go to a Thermal spa, my favourite one is called Veli bej, it is on the Buda side.

Where do you take your guest when you want to impress?

To the top of the Basilica. It costs only around €2 - 3, the view is fabulous from there. You will enjoy a 360 degree panorama.

Your go-to brunch spots:

A’ table. French style patisserie, with croissants, focaccias, sandwiches, fresh juices and coffee.

Your perfect night out in Budapest includes:

Going to a Restaurant with a reservation, having a relaxing walk around the center, then visiting an open-air bar. The night can be ended up dancing somewhere.

Best place for a cheap bite on-the-go:

Stèg in Dob utca. Try our savoury dough called làngos. Ask for garlic cream, sour cream and greated cheese for the top.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Budapest. How do you spend it?

Chilling on the Szabadság bridge. Bring a throw, some snacks, maybe a bottle of drink, then enjoy the sunset with your friends.
