This was my 2nd Chernobyl day trip with SoloEast. It was a private tour with one other faculty member and eight master's students. As before, the tour was fantastic. Nicholai, our guide, was knowledgeable, patient, and a wonderfully wry sense of humor. The lunch was great - salad, soup, bread, Flintstone sized pork chops with potatoes, and apple pastries. I...

I've made this 2-days trip in December 2016. For those who want to take pictures less stressful, I recommend 2-days trip. Simply: You will see more. If taking pictures is not priority, then maybe 1-day trip is OK, but be aware of, there will probably be more participant. I do like how Igor, our guide, took care of our group... More

How to describe a day in the 30km zone? It is just so strange. The tour was great, they make it absolute clear that you will need a passport, check and recheck that too. Organization was just great, the guide takes you around, seems to know everything, does speak quite good English. From Kiev it is a two hour drive.... More

I can't describe how fascinating it is to visit Chernobyl and Pripyat, but the tour was great! Well organized and easy to book. We had the best guide ever who could make even the most boring things interesting. Gladly answered questions and he was really good at explaing complicated things. I can highly recommend this! If you have enough money... More

What an amazing tour. The information from the videos shown in the bus to the site give good background information but the knowledge of our guide Sergi was excellent. He was also very professional & amusing too. So much is seen on this tour, from abandoned villages, monuments, the town of Pripyat, which is very haunting & the reactor itself.... More

We did a one day trip to Chernobyl with Solo East following recommendations from friends working in Kyiv. We weren't disappointed. The tour was excellent, the arrangements very slickly run and our guide was informative, amusing and professional. I was even impressed with the lunch in the canteen! If you've ever wanted to know more about what happened in 1986... More

Chernobyl has been on my must visit list for many years, partly due to its featuring in various computer games and literature/films. SoloEast were the top result in Google and featured on Top Gear, so I had little worry about booking with them. We did the two day tour, staying over night in Chernobyl itself and it was absolutely wonderful.... More

I booked this tour about a week in advance. The communication from the office was excellent. I rented an apartment through TripAdvisor that was next door to the hotel where the tour starts ("Apartment with a view on Maidan", reviewed separately), so that was extremely convenient. The tour started on time. The driver and guide were competent and professional. We... More

We looked for an Agency that provides Chernobyl tours and SoloEast was our choice because of the massive good reviews here on Tripadvisor. And this is something I can approve! Booking was easy because they all speak a proper English at the agency and you can pay with Credit Card or Paypal for example. Or in cash when starting the... More
