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!
It was fascinating to finally see the sites I've read so much about, & seen on tv documentaries for many years. We were a group of just 4 & our guide was thoroughly well versed & passionate about the subject. He encouraged us to offer views & was able to answer any questions. I've got a basic, self taught understanding of the subject & our guide was glad to fill in the gaps & tie everything together. There's LOTS of walking! There were a couple of rest breaks, one of which was at a pleasant street cafe for refreshments. I shouldn't forget to add that Matt(?), our guide, brought along a bottle of water for us all on what was a very warm day. I wouldn't expect this to be the case if we were a group of 15 or so though!
Fantastic time visiting all of the key places of the Third Reich, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful when answering questions. He allowed time for pictures to be taken, and gave time to stop at each place to inform us of the history of each location.
Alex was a great guide! Very informative and he gave us a ton of recommendations of where to go as well of where not to go. Thank you again for sharing a fraction of your knowledge.
What a fantastic way to introduce friends who are new to the city to the history of Berlin. Tour Guide Ciaran was such a great storyteller and even ended the tour with a poem!
