An unforgettable experience - breathtaking!

We were in the zone for 2 days and it was more than worth it. A day is probably just too short if you want to see everything. Our guide was awesome! We couldn't have been more lucky. He was nice, very competent and had answers to everything. We can count ourselves lucky! He also organized a meeting with a babushka for us. Incredible that we were allowed to experience this. The opportunity to get to know someone who has witnessed the catastrophe and has returned is simply indescribable. The organization went really well. We were picked up on time, had a great trip to the zone in a comfortable minibus. The hotel we stayed in and where we got breakfast and dinner was nice too. The food in the hotel and in the canteen in Chernobyl was very good. Typical Ukrainian cuisine that you have to try. Thanks a lot! It was wonderful! We will never forget it ☺️

We had a great time with Max - he was both easy going and informative, we felt comfortable and relaxed and he engaged well with us. Visiting the monument I wanted to visit, was the highlight of my holiday - and getting around such a huge city in a private car was fantastic. Would highly recommended this trip

Excellent tour well recommended

My guide spoke very good English and showed me all around the City of Kiev. She told me lots of history and made my tour so good. I really had a great time. Wear appropriate shoes as you cover lots of streets. The mururals are hidden in only places your guide will know. I’d recommend.

The tour was excellent. The guide was friendly and spoke exceptional English, and his knowledge of Kyiv's history and architecture was very informative. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting.

The tour gave us a very good overview of the most important sights. Spectacularly lit monuments. Very competent and friendly guide.
