Owner description: Incredible military experience in Ukraine - tank driving tour, shooting tour, Chernobyl and Pripyat tours.
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We booked the shooting tour on Thursday and the tank driving tour on Friday. Exactly on time we were picked up with a luxury Mercedes van from our hotel. The driver and guide (Max) were very friendly and the guide spook very well English. On Thursday we went to the shooting range, about 30 minutes drive from Kiev. There we were shooting with AK47, M16 and Draganov sniper guns. On Friday we went to a village about 2 hours and 30 minutes away from Kiev. The trip through the countryside was interesting. We first visited a military museum where original items from World War 2 and the Soviet Afghanistan War were shown. Then whe drove into the forest, where we had a spectacular shooting with an anti-tank gun. After that we drove about 60 minutes with 2 types of tanks through the countryside. The boys (both 16 years old) could sit on the roof of the tank when driving and had a great time. The tankdriver was very funny and was laughing a lot when driving. After the tank rides we got a military food meal with soup, patatoes, vegetables and meat. Before leaving the village both boys were invited to shoot with a machine gun and AK47 (innocent shooting with blank bullets only). I would like to recommend both tours to people who like some action, it is 100% worth the money.

Money well spent. The museum is very unique and surprisingly authentic, unlike most, it is all very hands-on and they are happy to let you play around and take pictures with pretty much anything you see. The tank tour is huge amounts of fun, made even better by the driver's hilarious antics and comments, you will not be disappointed. Oh yeah, and you get to shoot an anti-tank cannon - yep, you read that right. A day to remember...

The tank ride is long and very exciting. Next up is the anti-tank cannon and mounted machine gun, both are twice as awesome as the tank ride. The small museum is well kept, a good collection and has potential to be in itself one of the major tourist attractions in the region as the collection is built up. The lunch is also excellent, you know for sure because the guide and driver eat the meal with you

Wow, what a great time we had on this military tour. From seeing the museum and dressing up military outits, taking pictures with all the different guns, to the main course of diving the tank. You also get to ride on top of a soviet transport while the driver takes you on the ride of your life through a field barreling over everything in your way. Cost of the trip was $350 USD and worth every penny. Igor picked us up at our hotel promptly and we had about a 2 hour drive through the Ukrainian country side to get to the location. Oh, and you get to shoot an anti tank gun. You get a authentic Ukrainian lunch that was really good after all rhe fun before returning. My friend and I had a blast and we both highly recommend this to anyone in Kiev. They only take cash, so budget appropriately, but absolutly worth it. They accept USD. A memory we'll never forget.

An excellent and very worthwhile trip. Although the customer service from StayInKiev was not very professional (my partner was asked for more money when we went to get on the bus!) our guide (Vita) was terrific! No matter who you book with, you end up on the same bus anyway. Fascinating place, and not to be missed.
