On the way to Chernobyl, fly over Kyiv and take in the scenic views of Kyiv Pechersk Lavra, the Motherland Monument, Dynamo Stadium, and the Dnieper River. Moreover, fly above the Mezhyhirya Residence and learn interesting facts about the so-called “Museum of Corruption.” The highlight of the tour is a breathtaking flight over the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

One of the main advantages of the tour is that you’ll be accompanied by an expert private guide who will enlighten you of the tragic events of the Chernobyl catastrophe that happened in 1986.
