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.

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).

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.
