Tour itinerary can be seen below.
Arrive at the airport to be met by our guide who will transfer you to your private apartment accommodation right in the centre of Kiev. Spend the afternoon and evening at your leisure, taking in the sites of Kiev and visiting some of the city's many restaurants and bars.
The following morning you will meet in Independence Square at 08:15. Our representative will check your passport details before you board the minibus. Along the way we will play a video explaining the background to Chernobyl with some haunting footage filmed at the time of the accident. Over 100km later we enter Dytyatky (on the border of the 30km exclusion zone) and undergo document checks by the military. You will also meet your government appointed guide for the day here. We drive onwards to Chernobyl and meet with the management of the Chernobyl Interinform Agency to give us a rundown of the day’s events and history of the site at the museum. On the way we will stop in Kopachi village to walk around the abandoned kindergarten.
We then head towards the Power Plant, passing the 10km border and check point. We view the abandoned building work of the unfinished 5th and 6th reactors and cooling towers and pass the monument to the firemen that lost their lives following the disaster. We soon later reach reactor number 4 and are allowed photograph opportunities for a short time at a distance of 100m.
We then drive through the Red Forest and onto visit the dead town of Prypyat, the town which housed the workers of the power plant and their families. Walk around the main town square and view the town hall and theatre. Walk further around the town and see the swimming pool and afterwards the school where you can view leftover books, half marked registers and toys left behind.
Finally we drive back to Dytyatky Control Point to measure our radiation levels before exiting and returning to Kiev between 19:00-19:30. Return to your accommodation and spend the evening at your leisure again before being picked up the following day by our guide who will transfer you to the airport for your flight back home. If you would like to stay in Kiev for a few extra days, please let us know and we can arrange this for you.
