Budapest: 3-Hour Trabant Sightseeing Tour

1. Budapest: 3-Hour Trabant Sightseeing Tour

Tour Budapest’s communist-era monuments behind the wheel of an original Trabant! There’s no better way to get into the nostalgia of Budapest’s past than with in an original Trabant 601. More than 3 million Trabants, or paper Jaguars as they’re affectionately known, were manufactured during the time the vehicle was in production. This is the car that features a 2-stroke engine and is said to be made of paper and plastic. Its 26-horsepower engine will take you from 0-60 kilometers per hour in 21 seconds! To drive a Trabant you need to start by checking the fuel dip-stick to ensure that the tank isn’t empty, and then open the fuel tap. After pushing down the clutch pedal, you shift to first gear, and then you’re off. It’s recommended that you visit the Communist Statue Park, the Ecseri flea market, and the typical prefabricated blocks of flats built in the 1970s and 1980s. Alternatively, you can take a more normal tour of the major city attractions. If you’d like to continue your Trabant adventure, you can also book your airport transfer with a Trabant! Please note that in order to drive the Trabant a valid driving license is required.

What people are saying about Budapest

Fun way too see Buda and Pest

Informative driver. Great way to see an overview of the city. Not for tall people. Car is very, very small. Probably not very safe since 30 plus years old. Disappointed just a little over 2. 5 hours but by then we were ready to get out of the car.

Nice guides, in the three hours we saw a lot and learned a lot about Budapest. The ambience in the two-stroke engine is extraordinary, and my children liked it too

Great experience with Stephen. He was very knowledgeable about Hungarian history. I recommend his services. You won't regret it. We had a great time in Budapest.

A very professional and kind driver who was very helpful and gave advice This tour was amazing and we could see all we wanted A must do in Budapest

What I loved the most was my guide’s deep historical knowledge - he knew EVERYTHING I asked about.
