If you have a list of things to do before you die, make sure this trip to Chernobyl is at the top! Natasha at Solo East arranged our whole visit to Ukraine perfectly, Igor and Uri ensured that the day went without a hitch. Words and photographs cannot really do justice to the excitement and complete awe of this trip,... More

I haven't got a bad thing to say about this tour and company. The ride to Chernobyl was long yes, but they play some documentaries and videos all about Chernobyl, all very interesting (other than the music) and you can choose to watch the Ukrainian countryside fly by or learn a little more about the disaster. At the first check... More

Very easy to organise, thanks to the quick response from the SoloEast Travel Assistance. Also many details about the history of ChNPP and the Exclusion zone for people who didn't knew everything before they got here, or for the others to remember. The guide was very kind and opened to many questions, and gave us more freedom that I thought... More

This day tour to Chornobyl was very interesting. It is not very cheap, but the quality of both the transportation and the guide, as well as the tasty lunch makes it worth the price. Our guide, Nikolay really knew what there was to know about Chornobyl, and also could explain it in very good English. The driver of the minibus... More

From the time we contacted SoloEast we we constantly kept abreast of details. Natasha and Inna were terrific in assisting with planning and emails were answered promptly. We coordinated airport pick-up and return, Tank ride, Shooting, and Chernobyl through SoloEast and were not disappointed with anything. Sergei met us at the airport holding a SoloEast sign. A quick ride into... More

Like many, we wondered if the trip would be worth the price, but by the end of the day, we agreed that it was money well spent. How often to you get to visit such an iconic location (even if it's infamy is for all the wrong reasons). Our guide was fantastic- very knowledgable, friendly, and prepared to answer any... More

At first I was quite skeptical about the tour and how much it was 179 USD. However it was well worth it. Our guide Helen was phenomenal as she allowed us to explore places and sites most people are not allowed to see. Bus ride was pleasant and the group small only 15 people. I would recommend bringing food and... More

A bit pricey but completely recommended! Hard to explain how it feels to be in such unique, deserted, overgrown and radioactive places. We visited the town Chernobyl (where a limited amount of people live and work), the reactors (from around 200-300m) and the ghost town of Pripyat that was evacuated shortly after the disaster. A documentary during the transport on... More

Amazing experience! Cant recommend this trip enough, our guide Igor was extremely knowledgeable. We were able to go into some of the buildings which enhanced the experience of the trip. It was an experience of a lifetime, we are so happy we booked this private tour.
