We had a private tour with Constantine, couldn’t have asked for a better more informative and friendly tour guide, life changing experience that Constantine was a major part of, got everything we came for and were greeted with water bottles and hand wipes just in case. 100% recommend once this whole corona-virus is over.

Max was a great guide, super knowledgeable & friendly and being a private tour meant we got to see more than the larger groups and were able to stop longer or shorter at places depending on what worked for us. I am so glad we chose to visit Chernobyl this way. On top of this the car was comfortable and we were glad not to be in a mini van the whole day like other tours, especially on the way home!

We visited Chernobyl as a private tour. Our tour guide max, was amazing. Max was full of information, very friendly and polite. Very good English too. When we were picked up, max asked us if there was anywhere we wanted to visit in particular. Max took on board everything, even went out of his way to show us his favourite places. There was no question left unanswered, we all learnt more from max than any book or television programme. One thing I must say - max is so passionate. The way he speaks about the disaster comes straight from the heart, and this made our tour even more special. A big thank you to max, we will never forget the experience you gave us. Everything was perfect. As soon as you picked us up, we felt as though you had always been a friend to us. Thank you again.
