Full description

No need to queue: just jump into your very own Trabant and chug away through Berlin. Join your fellow cardboard-comrades in convoy, and see the capital like you've never seen it before during this Trabi Safari.

After a short introduction to the mysteries of the four-stroke and manual gearbox, your adventure can begin. Take a trundle back in time, in your much-loved vehicle, over the cobblestones of Berlin.

After your second hair-raising corner, you'll have caught the Trabi-fever, and never want to get out again. Though all good things must come to an end, you'll get your very own Trabant driver's license as a souvenir of this unique experience. Pass by popular Berlin sights during your tour, including Potsdamer Platz, the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden, the Berlin Cathedral, the Rotes Rathaus (Red City Hall), the TV Tower, East Side Gallery, the Oberbaum Bridge, and Checkpoint Charlie. Tip: Why not follow up your tour with a trip to the Trabi Museum at Trabi World.

We really enjoyed our Trabi Safari. It was exciting and great fun. Easy to say as I was not the driver but the back seat driver recording the experience on my phone. Both my husband and son were in their element getting to know the idiosyncrasies of the trabant. Got lots of great video of the art on the Berlin Wall and the sites along the route, along with recording of the two guys negotiating and getting to drive the trabant. Would really recommend the trabant safari. Guide was great as well as the lovely 'mechanic' who explained the workings and showed the engine to us. Thank you.

We signed up for the Trabi tour, thinking we would all sit in the Trabi with our private driver & tour guide! Upon arrival, we found out that’s not the case and we would actually driving our very own Trabi! Thankfully, one of us knew how to drive a manual because that’s the Trabi we ended up with! (There’s an option for an automatic, if manual driving is not your jam!) There’s a lead tour guide and everyone follows the designated guide in a line. The guide took us all over Berlin & the popular tourist sites. The guide talks through a radio so all cars can hear the history about each site while driving their Trabi! If you have EVER wanted to know what it was like to drive a car from East Berlin during the Cold War, this tour would be the perfect opportunity to check this off the bucket list! It was nerve wracking, but such a fun & exciting tour to do!! We would highly recommend it!
