There is no better way to visit the Exclusion Zone than taking a private tour by yourself or with close friends.

Our private tours to Chernobyl offer door to door service and lunch. Soviet Wonders offers a Complimentary Airport Pickup for any Reservation of 3+ persons. There will be a driver waiting for you with a sign and will take you to your accommodation when you arrive to Kiev.

This is the best option to avoid large groups.

Have you already been to Chernobyl and Pripyat ? We can customize the program for you or just decide where to spend more time to take the best shot. You can check our Itinerary to understand a bit about the trip dynamic.

Places like hospital, supermarket, unfinished cooling tower, different buildings around Duga, different kids camps, cinema, music school can be easily reached during private trips.
In order to visit more places we suggest groups not bigger than 5 persons.
