My second trip to the zone was in October 2019 for 3 days and I chose Misha mainly because of his relation to the place and the information to be specialized on private tours, focusing on the customer‘s interests. It worked very well with Misha from the organisation to the trip itself. His responses were very fast and helpful in terms of some questions I had beforehand.
I‘d say that if you have an advanced interest in what happened at the site and it‘s history and want to see it as it is today, then Misha will be a perfect guide for you. It will not be a usual tour, you will be on a unique trip beside the most common way to do a visit inside the zone (group tour). That, by the way, is the only opportunity to get the emotions for the disaster, because there will be now rush, no stress and no pre-selected route. You decide what you want to see - Even the interior of the Chornobyl nuclear power plant.
If you are a photographer or not, grab a professional camera for the trip if you have such an opportunity. Before the trip I had no experience and knowledge about the use of a professional camera, but Misha helped me to take a lot of good pictures, because he knows all the perfect locations for a good shot.
And beside all that, Misha has fair prices for his services with many accomplishments already included (hotel, gas, ...) and a sense of humour.
I am happy to have chosen Misha‘s services for this trip and will surely come back to the zone for a third time with Misha as my guide.
