Absolutely loved this guided tour. Our tour guide Max was fantastic. His English was excellent and his knowledge and passion was brilliant. He gave us so much information that we never knew and this visit is one of the best tours we have done. Thoroughly recommend as it is a once in a lifetime experience. Would recommend going in Winter or late Autumn as there are loads of trees so would imagine that when they are covered in leaves, it would make it difficult to see. Also take some food for the stray dogs who are friendly.

We had a private tour with Constantine, couldn’t have asked for a better more informative and friendly tour guide, life changing experience that Constantine was a major part of, got everything we came for and were greeted with water bottles and hand wipes just in case. 100% recommend once this whole corona-virus is over.

It was a really cool experience. The guide told a lot and showed many cool places. The day passed very quickly and I actually thought 1 day was way too short. We have spent 1.5 hours in Prypjat, I would have liked to see more of this. I recommend everyone to take a personal guide, you can ask what you want and he will take all the time for you. You can also specify your personal preferences whether or not you want to go somewhere. It was also very quiet in the area during our trip so the deserted city was even more impressive. I thought it was a shame that the guide was on his phone a lot during the day. This did not come across as very professional and friendly. Furthermore, had a really impressive and unforgettable day.
