Private tour is the best way to experience the atmosphere of abandoned area, hear the silence and plunge into the post apocalypse world. You are able to see maximum locations in your own pace based on your own preferences and on date that is good for you…just you, your friends/colleagues and your guide. This kind of tours will cover all your needs (urbex , photography, media, research etc.) and give you a unique chance to explore Prypiat in depth. Our experienced guides know the area perfectly, they will take you around and show you breath-taking places that are not possible to see in the group tour. We guarantee you a real adventure, true emotions and experience you will never forget.
it’s safe to go there now! Radiation exposure during one full day in the zone is equal to a 1 hour flight and 3000 times less than a CT scan!
Trip cost depends a lot on the number of people going on the tour (more people are going –the lower price you get).
Attention! The price includes: a full package of documents allowing visits to the exclusion zone, permission for photo/video shooting, transportation Kyiv-zone-Kyiv, English speaking guide, accommodation in the town of Chernobyl (the nights before and after the tour are not included in the tour cost as you stay in Kyiv), insurance, dining and maximum safety. However, some options, such as single rooms, interpreter etc. may increase the cost.
We meet you at the airport/train station and transfer to your hotel/hostel. On the morning of day 1, please, meet your guide outside your hotel/hostel at 07.50 a.m. He will check your passport details. Then departure from Kyiv. Our skilled drivers and comfortable vehicles (AC, wi-fi on board, so you always safe and in touch with the world even in the middle of nowhere) will make the journey safe and sound. We stop at the patrol station, so you can get your morning coffee, buy water and snacks. It’s the last civilization on our way. It takes around 2 hours to get to the main entrance of the zone –check point “Dytiatky”, where we pass passport control, sign radiation safety rules.
Check in the one of the hotels of Chernobyl town (for 2 day tour). We do our best for you to stay in new hotel called “Desiatka”, but it might be fully booked on the days of the tour. In such case, you will stay in a hostel “Polissia”, but have breakfast/ dinner in “Desiatka”. (Attention! It’s a curfew after 10 p.m. and you are not allowed to walk around Chernobyl without your guide.) The hotel in Chernobyl is twin accommodation. If you require a single room, please, let us know in advance. You need to pay 40S extra for it. Lunch and dinner are provided on day 1 full board on day 2-4 and breakfast and lunch on the last day at the Chernobyl canteens (vegetarian meal available upon request): Ukrainian cuisine, all products are delivered from Kyiv. Every time you leave 10km zone and 30km zone you have to pass radiation checks. In case of failure, you start working as a guide there. (Kidding) You will arrive back in Kyiv around 8 p.m. on the last day of your tour and will be dropped off at your hotel. We arrange an airport transfer as well.
