Great experience. Easy pick up as directed, nice video to the site, hit all of the top spots and ate a great meal at lunch. It was really nice and relaxing on the bus. It rained a bit but it really did not interfere with our tour. The guides were nice and answered questions. There is a small gift shop... More

The Chernobyl tour was fantastic, helped having good weather. The tour goes around several sites of abandoned villages, Chernobyl town, old schools, old radar status and of course next to the reactor, or as close as the officials will allow on the day. Here are my top tips. Take some snacks and drinks, we had lunch (included) at about 3pm,... More

I booked this online and all was ok... Though with approx 12 hours notice the local authorities cancelled all visits at the weekend due to military exercises This was totally out of SoloEasts control but the way they handled it was superb! I was lucky enough to get a rescheduled trip on the Monday, arriving at the checkpoint it looked... More

What an utterly shambolic experience this was. I booked to do a day trip with Solo East on Sunday March 8th 2015 to visit the Chernobyl site. Due to time restraints I could only spare a couple of days for the whole trip so booked to fly out to Kiev on Saturday 7th March from London and return on Monday... More

Dear CheGuevarasBeard. We understand your frustration and the last three days were not the best in our life. But first of all I would like to state that SoloEast has nothing to do with the cancellation of the tours on March 7th and 8th, 2015 We had three groups planned with total of 29 people from many countries – how...

The tour was well organized. Misha was a great guide. The tour was very interesting and realized how vulnerable a small man is.

If you're looking for an Adventure - here it is! I can say that it was like exploring a new world. And I learned a lot about radiation 1:1. And how important maintenance is to Buildings. This Trip was like getting more information and experience than whatching 70hours of Movies about. So if you have the chance - take it.... More

kiev itself is a fantastic city to visit but the trip to chernobyl was beyond a doubt the highlight of my visit! Very well organised we met in a central location (independence square) and spent the trip up to the first checkpoint with a film describing the event at reactor number four and the heroic struggle to contain the fire...

I can't really critique this tour in great detail because it was so well run and organized. Chernobyl and Pripyat are phenomenally interesting places and the day tour will show you all the best places. I communicated with the company by email and they provided promt and accurate information. I ran into an unexpected issue during booking the tour. It... More

My friend and I did the Chernobyl day trip and on the way back ato Kiev a rural family homestay in Orane village near Chernobyl. The family was very kind and the experience was a great opportunity to experience rural life in Ukraine. Although our hosts didn't speak English the experience was flawless. We returned to Kiev by public bus... More
