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.

A really nice tour with a minibus and a relatively small group of people (10) the bus only sits 16 so not a massive croud even if it would be full. The guide was amazing!

Tour guide, Jevgenija, was excellent. I would recommend to go to this tour in autumn or early spring, better building visibility in Pripiat town

Super good experience, super sweet and friendly guide. She was really gos to English and was happy to answer questions.
