A deeply informative journey into Berlin's turbulent past. It seeks and provides answers to how could a civilised country fall so quickly into barbarism. Hopefully we will continue to heed the warnings from history. There are many disturbing images and stories as one would expect.

This was easy to book, the driver and guide were friendly, helpful and informative and we had a lovely day out finding out all about Berlin. We'd love to do the trip again and look forward to seeing Berlin in all her glory in the summer.

Fantastic experience!! Something really different, couldn’t recommend it highly enough

Excellent fun. Crazy drive through Berlin in the Trabi. Guide was great.

Highly recommend the Trabi Safari! So much fun and great info
