Budapest Must sees?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I and several of our friends are taking a Danube River Cruise next April and it ends in Budapest. We plan to stay in Budapest for 3 days afterward. The cruise company includes a 1/2 day overview type of tour, which involves seeing the City Park, Opera House, St Stephens Cathedral, Parliament, and Matthias Church, plus 'visiting' Heroes' Square, Buda Castle Hill, and Fisherman's Bastion. We are going to hire a private guide for perhaps an additional 1/2 day tour with more indepth sightseeing. The guide will customize the tour and we are struggling with what are the most important sites to get a real feel for the city and what makes it unique. What are the 'must-sees? Is there anything that added greatly to your experience in Budapest...that would require a guide, I mean. We already plan to visit the Great Market Hall, the New York Café, and Kirlay utca, but thought those could be seen and enjoyed without a guide. Any input or thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
