2-Day Chernobyl, Pripyat and Duga Tour with Hotel and Babushka Visit

There’s so much to see in and around Chernobyl that it easily warrants a 2-day tour instead of a day trip from Kiev. This small-group excursion includes two days of touring, hotel accommodations, meals, and more. Tour the Exclusion Zone by air-conditioned minivan: explore abandoned Chernobyl and Pripyat in-depth, learn about V.I. Lenin Nuclear Power Plant, and meet locals who have returned here. All possible safety procedures are observed throughout for your well-being and comfort.

I did the 1 day tour form Kiev which included the ChNPP because, let's face it, there is no point only going around the empty city. As there weren't other people, I had to book tje private tour which is very expensive. I was picked up at the hotel right before 7am and didn't come back until 7:30pm, so it was a long day. The majority of the tour is the Power Plant, you spend 5-6 hours there, including lunch at the canteen where the employees also go. As I finished with the PP tour at 4pm, there wasn't a lot of time to go around Chernobyl or other places, so the second part had to be rushed. We managed to see a lot of other places before it became dark at least, but, unlike others, I didn't go inside any building because the guide said it is illegal to do so. Although everyone else does it. The ChNPP was fantastic and the guide (who is an employee fo the PP) was really, really good. You even get to change in special clothes and wear a mask to go into the most contaminated reas. I had 3 dosemeters the whole time and, it seems, the dose of radiation at the end of the whole tour was really low. We even got to see the reactor pumps up close and we got to walk on the reactor hall. I would say there is no point goign into te exclusion zone without going inside the power plant as well. Yes, you go into the control room 4 (with masks and gloves on) which is the room where the accident happened in 1986. There are a lot of radiation checks (3 after the PP, and 2 more before going home) and a LOT of paperwork for the power plant employee and also A LOT of checks, cinluding being processed in and out of the PP which, itself, is a long process. It was only 9 of us (you join a separate group) and still took a while to go through all those checks, so I can't imagine going there with more people. Overall an amazing experience at the ChNPP and highly recommended.

I strongly recommend the ChernobylX tours. I booked two days because all the blogs I read, suggested the 2 days tour as the experience will be more complete and probably this is not a trip that you will do frequently, so 2 days is a better option. We were in 6 tourists, a driver and the tour guide, however I think this number can increase depends on the season. The tour started in Kiev, about 2 hour long to nuclear zone check point, where during this route we watch a documentary, similar to discovery channel documentaries. About ChernobylX, I had only good impressions. They were very kind and give attention to all the emails I sent asking about the tour. They pay attetion to all details that can improve your experience. The tour covered all the famoust spot. The car is safe and clean. The food is delicious (Ukrainian food, but you can inform any restriction you have. It includes the lunch, dinner, breakfast and 2nd day lunch). The hotel we stayed was also very good (I think there are not many hotels option to stay there). And finally, I would like to congrats our tour guide called Lara, she let us confortable to appreciate the points in our time, carried about our safety, showed knowledge about the history and was really very nice and kind to us all the time. To conclude, to visit Chernobyl/Pripyat is an amazing experience and definetly ChernobylX Tour contributed to it.

My experience with CHERNOBYLwel.come was fantastic. I had decided to go on a solo tour because I had been to Chernobyl once before, and I wanted to focus my second visit on specific areas and avoid returning to other ones. In addition, I wanted to have ample time to fly my drone during the visit. The team responded quickly to all my questions, did all the paperwork so I would be able to fly my drone, and connected me with a guide (Nataly). They set up a Zoom call with her so I could discuss what I wanted to do during my visit. Nataly gave me precise information on where I would be able to fly my drone, and what sites I could see from each location. She also told me which buildings I would be able to see from the outside only vs. those were it was possible to go inside. On the day of the tour, Nataly and the driver picked me up from my hotel. The vehicle, a Mercedes minivan, was very comfortable to ride in. Nataly gave me some great general information about Chernobyl and Pripyat during the trip, and she explained what would happen at each checkpoint. Because it was a solo tour, the process for going through the checkpoints was fast. We spent 30 minutes at the Shipyard (one of the sites I had picked to fly my drone), and then headed to the Duga Radar, a truly amazing site where we spent one hour. Nataly had some awesome stories about Duga and I got some fantastic drone shots. We spent the rest of the day in Pripyat, with the first few hours dedicated to flying my drone by the Ferris Wheel. When I was done flying, Nataly took me on foot to several sites, including the supermarket, hotel, movie theater and café. She also took me to a few sites that were unexpected, which was great: a vehicle graveyard and a former day-care center with some really eerie rooms. What made the trip so special was that Nataly knows Pripyat inside and out, and it's obvious she's passionate about the history and exploration of the sites. She can take you to locations off the usual beaten path and give you a unique experience. I would highly recommend a solo tour with CHERNOBYLwel.come and specifically with Nataly as your guide - you won't be disappointed!
