Full description
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.

      Driver and Car made it a fun experience.

      Our driver and guide Miki Budai did an excellent job of showing us the many attractions of Budapest. He was a safe courteous driver and had a great deal of knowledge of the sights and history of Budapest. He also gave us lots of helpful tips which enabled us to enjoy the rest of our stay in Budapest. Highly recommended.

      Great way to explore Budapest

      I booked this tour and didn't know what to expect upfront. But the trip was very well organized. The four trabants for our group were waiting for us at the airport from were our trip started. They even thought of our luggage which was picked up by a minivan and brought directly to our appartements. So we could enjoy our tour from minute one. Very professional and reliable. I can recommend every one to experience this great way to visit Budapest.

      Excellent, je recommande fortement

      Une façon originale pour nous de dire au revoir à Budapest ou nous vivons depuis plus de 2 ans. Notre guide Attila parlait très bien français et à agrémenté cette visite de divers anecdotes tout en nous racontant l'histoire des hauts lieux de cette superbe ville. Vraiment très sympa à faire on ne voit pas les 3h passer.
