Full description
On this full-day tour from Kiev you will visit Chernobyl and learn about the tragic events that took place there. This tour includes transportation and an English-speaking guide who used to live in the zone when the Chernobyl accident happened – they know more than enough about the disaster of Chernobyl to answer all your questions.

Everyone should have a look

Everything fit right from the start. The tour itself is very well organized and cannot find anything negative. The tour itself was very impressive and makes you very thoughtful. I had the 1 day tour and feel that I saw a lot. Many thanks to the get your gide team.

Worth doing

Fairly pricey for what it was, and the tour of Pripyat was basically Just a photo opportunity for sensationalist tourists... but the guide was very knowledgeable, and being able to witness the abandoned nuclear reactors was pretty powerful. Unexpected bonus was to see an old radio transmitter, that rises like an iron giant from the forest...
