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.

I recommend everyone their tours.

The tour was very nice, Miklos, Barna and Adam were splendid. They emailed me several times just to make sure the tour was confirmed. They came to pick me up at home and we went to the Ecseri market by public transport, as expected. Adam and Barna were very nice during the tour, I thought I was with friends. Adam took many pictures of us together, which were immediately delivered to me in Italy. I consider this your local correspondent EXCELLENT. they are very organized, sincere and very correct.

Excellent, I highly recommend

An original way for us to say goodbye to Budapest where we have been living for more than 2 years. Our guide Attila spoke French very well and enhanced this visit with various anecdotes while telling us the history of the highlights of this superb city. Really very nice to do we do not see the 3 hours go by.

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

A very well done tour. I really liked the guide and feel he did a good job of explaining some history and answering our questions.
