    Worthwhile tour
    David_F
    , May 2022
    If you can drive a stick shift, by all means, give it a try. We actually got to see a fair amount of Berlin. Our (company) leader was great but a little hard to understand through the static on the radio. The cars are loud and vibrate a lot. However, this just adds to the authenticity.

    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.

    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 !.

    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.

    Excellent tour, brilliant guide, really had so much fun. A bit scary at first and the gearbox takes some getting used to so if you are a novice driver this might not be for you. You are out and about on the main streets of Berlin so it's not for the feint hearted but the experience was hilarious and amazing. Would highly recommend but be prepared for the 'East German' driving experience hahahahahah
