Private tour of Chernobyl is so recommended! We had a group of 8 and it was perfect. The guide steered us around in a way that avoided the big tour busses as much as possible, so we mostly had the cool places to ourselves. The guide works at Chernobyl for another job so had great insights. Drawbacks: Driver: He was 10 minutes late to our pickup and managed to make two wrong turns coming back to Kiev after a really long day. Vehicle was older with a broken TV so no film; guide did a good job verbally educating but a film would have been much better. My only issue with our friendly and knowledgable guide was that he wasn't great on the pacing. Too much time with the monuments in the morning, then for the really good stuff in the afternoon we were racing around; he would give us literally 30 seconds to photograph a room and run to the next place. Hurry hurry hurry!!! Not fun, and I ended up taking lousy photos in one place because I was so rushed that I forgot to change my ISO settings.

It was very nice to visit Chernobyl with this company. Everything has been professionally prepared. The guide told us a lot about the place, showed several hot spots. The trip itself lasted from 8:00 to 20:00. The downside of the trip was the combination of two groups: ENG and RUS, so we lost our time listening to the same stories twice. Better to choose only the English version. Prepare that is not allowed to entry buildings, so urbex is off
Nice guides who picked up at the hotel. Out on the shooting range, we got to try some weapons that you are not normally allowed to try. The BRMD-2 was an impressive vehicle! A driver drove us out on bad roads and unpaved terrain and then I had to drive home. Powerful experience.
Great trip with a very great guide. Very impressive to walk around ghost town Pripyat and the Tjsernobyl surroundings.
The legendary Chernobyl Exclusion Zone seen with your own eyes. Definitely recommendable.
Hello, my dears. It was well organized. We would book here again and again.
