This was the most fun tour in Berlin. A must do! The old cars were a fantastic experience and the guide was very helpful
A fun driving challenge
, Jul 2019
The activity was very fun and the guide was interesting and had a good sense of humor. The only downside was that the car we were given was a bit hard to keep the engine running at the traffic lights.
Fun, different experience

This was a very fun attraction, if a little stressful due to the Berlin traffic and getting used to driving the Trabi. The only slight downside is that it's difficult to understand the tour guide on the radio and hard to concentrate on the tour itself as the driver. It was an unforgettable experience though and we'd recommend it.

The tour was not a brilliant way to see Berlin. You seemed to spend more time concentrating driving the car and pulling over to wait for others in the convoy, than actually looking at the sights. I'd recommend a cycle tour over this any day, as they offer more freedom and are slightly less stressful

Loved the tour. Mostly loved the experience of driving the car as it is special. Actually surprisingly peppy for such a little engine. Quiet and comfort may not be its outstanding characteristics however. The tour is thorough and takes you to all the highlights in Berlin. The commentary over the radio is well informed and good sometimes a little hard to hear over the engine, however but we loved every minute. Highly recommended but knowing how to drive standard is a definite plus !.

Super cool. And scary driving at first. But a cool way to get around and do a quick drive around to familiarise yourself in Berlin. Definitely recommend it.

For anyone who is visiting Berlin this tour is a must. Driving through the streets of Berlin listening to the tour guide and having a ball driving a Trabi it just doesn't get any better. The staff are fantastic and the cars are a brilliant.
