This is simply a perfect tour, well adapted to what a tourist would like to see - and more than that. This was one of the most important reasons to visit Kiev, and both my colleague and I found the tour immensely interesting and well organized. Showing videos on the way explains much of the history. The time is of... More

The tour and the guide were very interesting. Two things I didn't like: 1) They took a markup of 10%+ on the exchange rate because I paid in Ukrainian Hryvnia instead of USD (rate of 14.2 instead of all banks who had 12.8/13.0 as bid/ask). So make sure you pay in USD to avoid this extra charge! 2) The bus... More

Amazing trip to chernoybl, hats off to the tour company who look after you well and ensure the day runs smoothly. Visiting the ukraine and chernoybl has been a amazing experience , I can't understand why tourists are staying away it's one of the safest places I have been to . You cover everything in this your well worth it.

The Chernobyl tour is really worth it. In my opinion, this was the most notable sightseeing I did in Kiev. Not only was it informative, but very emotionally moving. The guides were fluent in English and helpful. This day trip may be somewhat expensive, but is worth every penny. Truly a once in a lifetime experience!

What an experience. Probably the most interesting trip I have ever done. Solo East did a brilliant job. Standing so close to reactor 4 after watching the documentary of the brave souls who saved the day was quite emotional. Kiev itself is also well worth a visit.

A truly memorable day out and the highlight of my trip to Ukraine. Knowledgeable guides, good English and well organised. It was a full itinerary, with very little 'padding'.

Big, delicious lunch. Excellent photo opportunities. Very good guides and we spent plenty of time at the sites visited. I had lots of questions and the two guides on our trip... More

I went on a group trip on day 1 / private tour on day 2, in September 2014. Communication before the trip was very good, they reply pretty quick to emails and are always willing to accomodate. The guides themselves know a lot about the place, as they actually spend most of their time there. They speak pretty good English... More

Our group of 3 did both the Missile Base visit as well as the Chernobyl day trip. It was easy and quick to get information from them via email, they also helped with hotel reservations and practical information. The visits themselves were very interesting and well organized. Highly recommended.
