So fun! Tour guides were so enthusiastic and did a great job!

We were the only English speakers in the group of 12 or so participants. Tour guides graciously did the tour in both German and English! Many thanks. They showed us so much of Dresden - so informative! Loved it! The cars are just as you would expect and just as much fun to drive! Be sure to check out the collection of cars they have inside the garage before you depart. Plenty of photo ops for participants. Be prepared to have your photo taken by tourists!

Great event, entertaining, very nicely presented

The Trabi ride was a success overall. Short, but very helpful intro. Then, a well-chosen route with sights along the way, that took into account the traffic situation ( you want to avoid waiting in traffic jams), and the descriptions on the headphones provided throughout the ride were very entertaining and easy to understand. Definitely recommend it.

Meandered through Dresden in the car we wanted (Cabrio), out in the nice summer weather

Booking went well, no issues. The cars were set up and ready for us. The driver honored our last-minute wish to switch to a red Cabrio. That was really fantastic service, and we had a great experience!!! Interesting tour with lots of information. The cars are nice. West Germans should prepare themselves for some surprises where the auto technology is concerned. But you can really drive them! This wasn't exactly cheap: 60 Euros for adults, for two adults, isn't a steal. Kids up to the age of 14 ride for free. Tip: If you'll be coming in a group of 3 or more adults, negotiate the price with the provider beforehand. Otherwise, I really recommend this for if you've already taken the tour on the red double-decker of if you're a native but just want to go on a fun drive. You can drive a Trabi- you don't have to. Therein lies the difference.
