Pick up was well organized and the tour was as advertised. You spend the full day in the exclusion zone and you have enough time to take photos and walk around (in designated areas) on your own. The guide was well prepared and able to tell a lot of stories and speak in well understandable english. We were offered a lot of times to walk around on our own and own pace. We did not miss any spot we wanted to see. We felt all the time safe and did not had any concerns about saftey. The lunch was, ... well as expected not so nice, so take something with you. The transportation vans were nice and we had enough wifi to post photos directly from the bus and backup some of the photos already. We would have appreciated a group discount which was not offered.
I highly recommend this trip! We had a great day & it was such great value for money. Angelina was our guide & she was great, lots of knowledge & took us to the best places. Highlights were exploring an abandoned village (going in the homes), seeing the power plant & walking all round Pripyat. It was fascinating to see but an emotional adventure too thinking of all those affected by the explosion. In addition, I’m vegan & had enough food to eat on the trip with the vegetarian option.
Our tour of Chernobyl and Pripyat was fantastic. Four of us had travelled to Kyiv for the weekend but the tour was definitely the highlight for all of us. The tour company were excellent at accommodating us. We had the pleasure of having Lisa as a tour guide and I must say that we all thought she was amazing. I would highly recommend anyone to use this company to visit Chernobyl. Thank you very much! And a special thanks to Lisa.
Sorry for such a late review, we actually did the 2-day tour on the 1st of March this year and completely forgot to review. What an absolutely incredible experience it was, really could not of changed anything to improve our time. Our tour guide Maria was so amazing, so full of knowledge which really made our tour extra special so thank you so much Maria! We are planning to return and hope we can get Maria again!
Excellent tour from start to finish. Picked up promptly, everything was explained clearly about how are day would be. Natalie our guide was so knowledgeable and answered any questions with ease. We had several stop off, all so interesting with plenty of time for pictures. Lunch in the canteen is different but all part of the experience. Would 100% recommend this tour.
