Berlin: Private Cold War Walking Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
per group up to 10
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!
Really informative tour that showed us many interesting places visited by David Bowie during his time in Berlin and about the general history of the city in general. We covered a lot of ground by walking, bus and subway which stood us in good stead for having confidence to travel on our own in the days after the tour. Martin was friendly, professional and interesting and made our tour one of our highlights in Berlin.
Very knowledgeable informative and enjoyable guide tour. Martin showed us many interesting places where David Bowie visited during his residential time in Berlin and about the general history of the city. Highly recommended to anyone who is a big David Bowie fan.
We got lucky with our Tour and Tour Guide Carlos. We were able to take our time and he pointed out so many things that we had seen before but didn't know the history behind it. 3 Hours may not sound like a lot but you are definitely beat afterwards.
Well worth the money. Get to see all the main landmarks of Berlin whilst learning lots on the way. I recommend the walking tour, best part of the experience! You get to learn things you would of missed, such as Hitlers Bunker!
