    For absolute beginners to firearms like me, this was a great blessing. I was taken by car to the location and back in an orderly fashion and given the opportunity to fire a variety of weapons. When I expressed discomfort with the recoil, they helpfully provided the padding that saved me from further self-embarrassment. I would highly encourage anyone interested in using firearms for the first time to come here. The choice of guns (from WW2 Soviet Sniper rifles to the Kalashnikov) provides an array of power and choice that is actually a lot wider than most countries where private gun ownership is accepted.

What people are saying about Kiev

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

This is a do not miss experience if you like a little bit of adventure! Our guide was very informative, helpful, and attentive throughout the experience. I believe my son and I have picked up a new hobby when we get home!

Excellent guide and tour company. Our guide Elena had great English and interpersonal skills and was very knowledgeable about the subject. No problems overall. Thank you!
