Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The tour leaves a strong, if depressive, impression.
The agency seems to be exclusively staffed by ladies (drivers excepted), who know their stuff. Despite them having operated the tours many times over, they manage to convey strength and attentiveness during the well balanced tour. On the journey to Cernobyl, a 50' introduction movies prepares well to what expects the visitor. Duga radar, reactors site, ghost town of Pripyat, all is well extend and never the guide did look at her watch to make us feel to hurry up. Replying indepth to all and even blunt questions openly, she always remained factual and informative.
Thank you CernobylX for a job well done.

We really enjoyed the two day tour of Chernobyl. We wanted to do a private tour because I was very interested in seeing and learning about things far from the tourist circuit ... and, the truth is, it was very worth it. Everything is very well organized and our guide (Lara) attended to all our requests about the places that we were most interested in seeing and was very patient with our level of English, which is not too academic ...

Everything was very well organized from the beginning to the end ... The trip, the meals, the breakfast, the hotel ... And the guide knows very well all the intricacies of the area. We left feeling that it had been a great experience and a great investment.

Thank you Lara and thank you ChernobylWel.com

We went on a one day tour of Chernobyl and Pripyat. The organizing was top notch, it was very punctual. Our guide was cute, friendly and informative. Our group was pretty small and I didn't feel we are rushed, we had time to take our pictures and also get information about the past. It was just sad we had to leave pretty early as it was getting dark at 4pm.
However, I will definitely be back to Chernobyl with a 2 or maybe even more days tour and I will definitely choose Chernobyl X. They are passionate professionals. Thanks for making my dream come true by visiting Chernobyl.🤗

Really enjoyed the Chernobyl and Pripyat tour. I liked it was a small group as we were able to get round together quickly and ask more questions. The lady who was guiding us round was very friendly and informative.
It’s a shame you can’t go into the building with the swimming pool but that’s not the tour company’s fault.
Definitely recommend ☺️👍🏽

We had an amazing private 2 day Tour.
Our guide, Maryna, was very helpful throughout the whole tour and had a lot of knowledge about the history and current situation about the whole area.
She showed us all of our desired destination and the private tour was very flexible and accounted all our wishes.

We stayed at the Desiatka hotel. All in all it was a great experience! We were really pleasantly surprised about the comfort and especially the quality of the food! There was even free wifi in the hotel.

There were always enough safety measures in place. We all had dosimeter and Geiger counter. The many radiation level measurements throughout the day made the whole experience really comfortable.

Our guide was always very helpful and even helped with photographs, which made for some very amazing pictures.

The drive from our hotel to the zone and from destination to destination, was really comfortable thanks to our driver. There were zero waiting times thanks to our private tour. Also a big plus of the private tour was the ability to basically stop everywhere and whenever we wanted. Which was really handy because of the many wild animals.

On the second day we booked the power plant tour! It was a very interesting tour, with lots of interesting photo spots. The food at the cafeteria was good and there were even vegetarian options.

A little tip, if you like dogs, definitely take some kind of treats into the zone. There are lots of really friendly dogs.

All in all it was a once in a lifetime opportunity!

Again a big thanks to our guide Maryna and our driver Aleks for this wonderful experience!

Great company. I've been on 4 or 5 tours with Chernobyl wel.com (now Chernobyl X) over the past 4 years. The guides and transportation from them have always been on point. There haven't been any negatives associated with them. Communication was easy. Lara and Alexey were right on time in front of our apartment to pick us up for our 2 day private control room tour.

I used Chernobylx to explore the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone for two consecutive days, in a private tour. My tour guide was Lara. She was very knowledgeable, was very punctual and went for the extra mile to make my journey an unforgettable one.
Additionally I did the powerplant tour (full day) and the kalashnikov tour which made my stay in Kiev extra special. I usually travel solo, as tours tend to lose you precious time (due to obligatory lunches etc), but was far from disappointed by Chernobylx, they're a very professional and reliable organisation. I have already decided to visit the private missile base with chernobylx on a future occassion and visit the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazachstan (one of their unique offerings).
