A very enriching visit, I've learnt a lot about this historic disaster thanks to Julia M, our tour guide for this visit. I wish I could stay a bit longer to go more in-depth about what the people who lived here went through during this terrible event, although the one-day visit was enough to understand some of the basics of life in Pripyat before the tragedy.

Had a very interesting and informative lecture with the lovely #CW_online Helga today. She talked about the fires around Chernobyl, about the reasons, the changes those fires caused and the possible outcome for the future. If you have the chance to take such a lecture with her, please do. It's great.

I traveled to Chernobyl in Dec 2019. I was initially booked on a tour through a different provider but I was the only one booked with them so they outsourced me to chernobylwel.come. What a blessing it turned out to be. All logistics and communication was an absolute breeze, particularly since my tour operator switched last minute. Pickup and drop off back in Kyiv was central and seamless. Visiting Chernobyl and Pripyat has been a bucket list item for me since before it was opened up in 2011 to outside tourists, and NOTHING about it disappointed me or fell short of my hefty expectations. I was fortunate to have a relatively small group (6ppl) for the 2-day tour and out guide, Natasha, was absolutely fantastic. She was incredibly thoughtful and thorough on everything related to our experience. Her English was great and she went above & beyond for our group to get the most out of our experience. Very appreciative for chernobylwel.come and Natasha for everything they did to make my journey out there memorable. Till next time!

We did this tour in early March and it was fantastic! Our tour guide was Alex and I can’t say enough about how fantastic he was! He showed us all around the exclusion zone in detail. We spent multiple hours walking around Pripyat, during which he was very helpful in explaining to us what we were seeing and the history behind it. I’m not sure how he did it, but he managed to keep us away from other groups almost all the time so it was like we were the only ones there, which definitely added to the experience. The accommodations weren’t anything fancy but after a long day, the bed was a nice place to get some sleep before the power plant tour. The power plant tour was conducted by someone who works in the plant and was truly a once in a lifetime experience. He gave us lots of history and showed us so much. I didn’t think we’d be given as much access as we were. We got to flip AZ-5 in control room 3 and take pictures of so much. One of the last stops on our tour was the Duga Station. I knew nothing about this area going in, but it was one of the most fascinating parts of our experience. Alex was a great guide. He brought personal connections to the experience, gave us plenty of time to explore, and was very helpful with any questions we had. I highly encourage anyone who is looking at a tour to do one of the 2-day options. Two days really allowed us to explore the area in a way that would have felt rushed in just one day. Finally, a note on safety. We felt extremely safe throughout the duration of our tour. At the beginning we were given dosimeters that we wore at all times and collected the total amount of radiation we were exposed to. We were also given handheld Geiger counters which we used throughout the tour to see how radiation levels varies throughout the area (Alex was a great help in showing some of the more radioactive areas). When we went to the power plant we were given another dosimeter to wear in addition to the one given to us at the beginning of our trip. Anytime we went from a more radioactive area to a less radioactive area, we had to pass through checkpoints to make sure that neither we nor our vehicle were contaminated. At the very end, we were able to check our cumulative radiation exposure. We were far below the accepted limit, which was a great way to ease my mind as we finished our journey. If you’re thinking of visiting Chernobyl, do it with this company! Alex was fantastic, I’m sure the other guides are equally great. It’s a once in a lifetime experience.

We did the 2day tour staying in the town of Chernobyl overnight The tour was very good with an informative guide The power plant tour was also very good a great in-site to the workings of the plant The only disappointing part was the tour advertised going to the control bunker in the plant but we didn’t also it would have been good to have seen one of three reactor rooms now the plant is being decommissioned Definitely a great trip
