All through a great trip. We were picked up at 8:00 in the morning, and then drove to Chernobyl where our excellent guide Max `the dentist` met us. We then drove to the city of Chernobyl, saw the impressive radar station Duca 1, drove all the way to the Chernobyl plant, and ate in the canteen. We ended up in pripjat, and were full of impressions when we left the area 10 hours later. Max was an excellent guide who told many exciting stories, and showed us places not seen in larger groups. He was very accommodating, and also provided plenty of space for us to just experience without him talking all the time. The whole trip went without any problems, and lived up to expectations… and more. - remember drinks, snacks and possibly sandwiches for the trip. There is nowhere in the `zone` where you can buy anything and we are very happy that we had supplies with. We had a meal included in the price which, among other things, consisted of borscht (beetroot soup). It tasted good.
The trip was very exhausting, but also extremely interesting. The young guide was a top-class proffessionalist - he spoke Ukrainian, English, Russian and Polish. He had a great knowledge, big respect. He took us also in some forbidden places. This trip was totally price-worthy. I can recommend it to everyone. It was also very safe, nobody from our 20-persons group was irradiated.
The accommodation was rudimentary and the food was Soviet. But it was worth the trip :-) Capable guide with a lot of background knowledge. It was really fun and I can only recommend it. Paying attention to the season and being fit is important. You should also be able to speak English.
Excellent guide and tour company. Our guide Elena had great English and interpersonal skills and was very knowledgeable about the subject. No problems overall. Thank you!
