Are you ready to experience the post-apocalyptic world?

In just one day with your qualified CHERNOBYLwel.come guide you will not just re-live the Chernobyl story full of myths and legends, but you will create a real story of your own. Designed for people with a tight schedule and a desire to find the truth behind the largest nuclear energy disaster in history. The only one day tour with a program that is filled with history, pictures and videos provided by the National Museum of Chornobyl. The most in-depth tour you have ever been on, the best selfie locations, all major sites and attractions in Pripyat, Chernobyl nuclear power plant (from a safe distance outside) and Duga radar guaranteed. You will only be with a small group of foreign tourists. 

Your tour starts in Kyiv where you will be served “fresh” newspapers from 1986. The two hour drive to the Chernobyl zone in a comfy van with AC will pass with a blink of an eye thanks to a thrilling Chernobyl documentary you can watch, and a Wi-Fi connection. After the police passport check, getting to know your certified dosimeter, which you can keep or ask during the tour for any time free of charge, will be your first step in the zone. 

As we are travellers just like you, we will not hassle, especially on the sites like Chernobyl power plant sarcophagus, gigantic secret Duga radar, Pripyat central square or fairgrounds with the iconic ferris wheel. However, it is not the places, but the photos, videos and stories that accompany you throughout the tour, which will give you a sense of the Soviet era and reveal the hidden truth behind Chernobyl. You will even have a chance to enjoy your traditional Ukrainian lunch (from fresh groceries brought from outside the zone) in the same canteen as the Chernobyl power plant engineers! Full program of the tour can be downloaded below.

Since establishing our tours in 2008 with the promise of making visits to Chernobyl finally safe and accessible for international travellers, we have kept on improving our safety procedures not just by giving you free of charge dosimeters (Geiger-Muller Counters), respirators, and taking you through the verified and cleaned paths, but will also provide you with at least 3 dosimetric controls so you will feel comfortable on your journey back home. Also, we help you leave your Chernobyl legacy with free postcards and a free ticket to the Chernobyl museum in Kyiv. Chernobyl 1 Day Tour with CHERNOBYLwel.come will become your life changing tour, where you do not need to take care of anything else other than the storyline. Thank you for not compromising on quality when travelling to Chernobyl.

Due to actual constraints or weather conditions in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, CHERNOBYLwel.come keeps the right to change the program of the itinerary. But thanks to the experience of our guides, prepare to be amazed and mesmerized on a trip of your lifetime!

IS IT SAFE?

Our trained guides will guide you ONLY on health-non-hazardous places and trails. We ensure the dose of radiation received during 1 day spent in Chernobyl zone will not exceed 3-4 microsieverts (3-4% of nuclear power plant safety norms in EU), which is equivalent to around 4 hours on an intercontinental flight. Besides maximum safety, CHERNOBYLwel.come will take care of all documents, permits, transportation, insurance, dining, qualified guide and some surprise. Moreover, we will provide the most intense, most photogenic, and most adventurous trip to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Guaranteed
