Chernobyl Tour from Kiev
From US$114.00
Overview
Seeing Chernobyl, site of the catastrophic 1986 nuclear accident, is only permitted by guided tour. Moreover, the tours are popular—with around 10,000 people visiting each year. Secure your place in advance with this full-day tour from Kiev and get everything included so you can focus on the sights. View the reactor 4, tour abandoned Pripyat and Chernobyl, and more; and enjoy lunch, transport, commentary, and full safety measures included.
What to Expect
Depart central Kiev by air-conditioned, WiFi-enabled minivan and make the roughly 2-hour journey to Chernobyl. Bring your passport, and wear clothes that cover your arms and legs, plus sturdy shoes.

On route, watch a documentary on the 1986 accident, learning how the towns of Chernobyl and Pripyat—the latter home to plant workers—were evacuated afterward.

After crossing the Dytyatky checkpoint into the 18.6-mile (30-kilometer) exclusion zone, tour Chernobyl town before entering the 6.2-mile (10-kilometer) zone. Then, continue to Kopachi village—buried due to extreme contamination—to see its derelict kindergarten.

Next, view reactor 4, the accident site, from a distance, and take in the Red Forest and Pripyat, with its eerie streets, school, and amusement park.

After lunch at a Chernobyl canteen (made with outsourced ingredients), check out the mysterious Duga-3, a Soviet-era over-the-horizon radar system dubbed the ‘Russian Woodpecker.’

Your tour then ends in Kiev.

Very well-organized trip

We had no issues, everything was clear and well-prepared. I recommend taking the one-day trip to Chernobyl with the company.

Best. Tour. Ever.

This tour was incredible. The value for money is excellent. The tour staff are supremely organized. They probably speak better English than you do too lol 😂 This is clearly the BEST company to use if you want to enjoy the most comprehensive CHERNOBYL tour...More

Very professional

I am very happy that I decided to order my Chernobyl tour at Soloeast. This was truly a whole day tour as we spent around 7 hours in the exclusion zone. I highly recommend you to visit Chernobyl and to visit it with SoloEast.

No questions about getting lost here. Meeting point is super central right by McDonald’s at Maidan. There’ll be a representative from SoloEast and van waiting for you.
