Full description

Chernobyl is the most famous Ukrainian phenomenon. If you plan to visit Ukraine or are already in the country, don't miss out on the most important and unique experience. A tour of Chernobyl is a unique possibility to see the place of one of the greatest ecological disasters in human history. The truly terrifying consequences for the local population, the model city of the Soviet Union, Pripyat, and the whole region of Ukrainian Polissya are explained. You observe the place without any human alteration, as everything returns to its pristine state. Despite learning what happened here and the scope of the tragedy, you are going to find it impossible to resist certain charms of the zone. 

Accompanied by a professional English-speaking guide, you are going to hear the story preceding the accident on 26 of April 1986, you will learn what was happening that night at the power plant and about the scope of all the consequences still being tackled today. During your visit to Chernobyl, you can have lunch at the power station’s canteen. The hearty meal, prepared for employees, includes a variety of dishes made with organic products. Everyone should do this tour at least once in their life.

The tour was really well organized. Booking the tour is not difficult either. What I recommend everyone is to book a two day tour, because you can see more and there is more to tell about the guide. It is really very exciting and interesting what happened in Prypiat and Chernobyl back then. Ideally suited for history buffs and nostalgic fans. For example, what I did not find so good, two in our group were heavily alcoholic. In the email it is expressly stated that it is forbidden to appear drunk on the tour. Entry can even be denied at checkpoints, but then the whole group will not be able to enter. But the guide should pay attention to something like that.

Amazing day trip made all the better by Irina.

We couldn’t have had a better guide for this tour. Irina has worked at the plant in more recent year’s and her husband used to live in Pripyat. This was a place very close to her heart and I could tell she absolutely loved this job making the experience all the better for us. Perfect day trip.

We did the tour yesterday. The meeting place was easy to find and we had good luck with the two guides as well. Much knowledge, open to questions and also understandable English had both. It would have been nice to see one or the other even closer, but you also have to see the risks of the dilapidated buildings, so it's easy to understand why you get the most impressions from a few meters away. For a day trip the right decision and only to be recommended.
