If you are unable to join our monthly Group Tours then we can offer a very special Private Tour of Chernobyl with a choice of one to five days exploring the Zone. This is your tour, so even if you are only one person you still get a guide and transport. No one will be added to your group.
Trip highlights include exploring the photographer’s paradise complete with cooling towers, reactors, creepy abandoned buildings as well as spending the night in a Chernobyl hotel with a classic Soviet dinner.
We tailor make all of our trips, and our contacts in the area means we are often allowed to visit lesser seen parts of one of the most interesting and eerie places on the planet. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and surrounding areas are safe to visit. The levels of radiation on guided tours are relatively small; radiation levels in most places are less than those of being in an aircraft flying at 30,000ft.
Our Chernobyl tours are run to a high degree of professionalism. Chernobyl is unique to the world we aim to provide a one of a kind, personal experience of the exclusion zone that is not possible to gain from large group tours. Our itineraries are a sample of what will be seen on our tours, if time and daylight hours allow, we will pack in more locations and activities. The sights listed may not be visited in the order of the itinerary, as we change the schedule in order to avoid clashing with other tour groups to provide the ultimate, isolated Chernobyl experience.
An example two day tour:
DAY ONE • Up early to be picked up from your hotel in a comfortable AC minibus to the exclusion zone. • On the way there, we stop for breakfast as well as watch a documentary on the disaster. • On arrival, we go through the entry procedure and processing of our permits. • Visit the village Zalissya, the main square of the town of Chernobyl, “Fukushima” memorial, Statue to Lenin, the abandoned Synagogue and the only active church in the zone. • Lunch at the Workers Cafe (no produce is grown on site) to experience old Soviet style food! • Visit the Dock, local shops, Monument to the Firefighters, exposition of the remotely operated machines, hills of the buried village Kopachi, rustic kindergarten, panoramic angle of NPPA and existing sarcophagus, the construction site of the new sarcophagus, the Stone Road sign of Prypiat, Bridge of Death, Lenin Street, main square of Prypiat, supermarket, Amusement Park, School #3 (with gas masks), and swimming pool. • We transfer to the hotel in Chernobyl for dinner. • We continue with the evening with sampling of vodka and stay overnight in the Zone. • Rooms are based on twin sharing. The hotel is another quintessential Soviet experience and twin rooms have one shared bathroom between two rooms.
DAY TWO • Up early with breakfast in the hotel, before we head back into the Zone. • Visit Duga 3, nicknamed the “Russian Woodpecker,” a Soviet “over-the-horizon” radar at its base “Chernobyl 2.” • Visit Barrack Cooling towers on the side of the unfinished reactors 5 and 6. • Visit the Fish farm and “Red Forest”. • Visit the Panel buildings with Soviet emblems, Palace of Culture and “Jupiter” factory. • Visit the ruins of the School #1, hospital and morgue. Pripyat passenger boats on River Port, “Prometheus” cinema, music school and athletic stadium. • Laboratory in the former kindergarten, greenhouses and bus station. • We board our bus for the drive back to Kiev arriving at 5pm.
