Full description
Ride through the streets of Berlin in a vintage Barkas B1000, the classic East German–manufactured van, on a private group tour.  Travel through the east and west sides of Germany's capital city with an English-speaking tour guide and driver. This 2-hour tour takes you past the Brandenburg Gate, the Victory Column, the government district, the Reichstag, Potsdamer Platz, and other top spots in the city. You'll have the opportunity to stop for photos along the way while experiencing Berlin and its fascinating history in a unique way.  In 1961, the series production of the Barkas B1000 began in response to the West German brands, such as the VW Bulli. Powered by a Wartburg 3-cylinder 2-stroke engine, originally 900 cc, and rated at 43 hp, the Barkas B1000 quickly became the all-purpose van for people, police, hospitals, funeral homes, fire departments, and military driving.
