There are no words to describe the atmosphere, emptiness and excitement of walking alone in the streets of the ghost town of Pripyat. You need to live it. If there is something special or something mysterious, you'll find it. Just you and your friends, experiencing your own Chernobyl Diaries.

A Private tour to the Chernobyl exclusion zone (including the city of Pripyat) is a special tour designed for individuals or groups who want to explore the zone at their own pace, with their own preferences, on their own date and with no other people. Private Chernobyl tours are often the choice of people who want to experience something extraordinary, but also professional photographers, TV/film crews, people who have already been to Chernobyl, and even romantic couples (not a joke!) who want to travel back in time.

NEW: Test the VR on private tour! Virtual Reality can help you imagine how the Zone look like from above or from the inside of some buildings that can not be entered today. Thanks to this unique experience you can fly over the Amusement park, stand on the top of the DUGA radar or walk trough the school, hospital or kindergarten.

The tour starts and ends in Kyiv. The price of the trip includes transfer from your hotel in Kyiv to Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and back to your hotel with comfortable van (Mercedes-Benz Sprinter) with Wi-Fi and A/C, official permit for entering the zone, overnight accommodation (if you'll spend multiple days in the Zone), full pension & non-stop services of our professional guide. Flight ticket to/from Kyiv is not included in the price.

TIP: Usually, when you buy a flight ticket in advance, the price is in tens of euros. Check our FAQ for more info how to get to Kyiv, Ukraine from your country.

You can arrive to Boryspil Airport (approx. 30 km from Kyiv) or Kyiv International Airport - Zhuliany (directly in the city) and take a Skybus or Uber (just dial toll-free # 9988*) to your accommodation. It is possible to secure a transfer from/to airport for you by CHERNOBYLwel.come, in case of interest please contact our Customer Care

For a trip to Ukraine, most of the tourists don't need visas, just valid passport. Before booking the tour, please check if your passport is still valid. Don't forget to take your passport with you when traveling to Ukraine and also to Chernobyl. 

Traveling to Ukraine is completely safe these days. National departments of foreign affairs warn about these three areas - Donetsk, Luhansk and Crimea. All other parts of Ukraine are safe, just as your country where you come from. Our trip starts in Kyiv and continues to the north, towards borders with Belarus. Bear in mind these areas are as far as 1,000 km from the Donetsk and Luhansk & even further from Crimea. In addition to that, you will find Ukrainians very nice and hospitable by nature.

Please mind the fact that in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, for your own safety, you need to always wear sturdy shoes & clothes that cover your whole body (also in the hot days in summer). A Dosimeter, respirators and a multiple dosimetric controls during the tour are provided by CHERNOBYLwel.come and are all included in price. For children under 18 years of age, entry to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is forbidden. Also, entering buildings in Pripyat has unfortunately been prohibited since 2012. Read more about safety here

This is the only tour on which you choose your time, pick-up point (from Kyiv) and the places to see in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Our guide will help you choose the best locations and ensure all is done in comfort and via the safest routes possible. Private tours allow visitors to the Chernobyl zone to see the places usually hidden from the usual group tours and to enter parts of the city of Pripyat and the exclusion zone that are rarely seen on tours at all. And you can cherry-pick the locations you are interested in. 

The price includes permits to all parts of Chernobyl Exclusion Zone (30 km zone, 10 km zone, 2 km zone), Entrance to Pripyat, Permits to take photos and record videos, Compulsory health insurance, Dosimeter for the time of the tour, Dining, Comfortable transport, Accomodation (in case of 2+ day private tour) & a Pack of souvernirs and gifts (t-shirt, newspaper, magnet, ...). 

Additionally, private tours can show you the breath-taking Chernobyl nuclear power plant, including the control room and underground bunker. 


Our trained guides, Geiger-Muller counters (dosimeters) and Dosimetric controls at least twice a day will ensure you stay safe throughout your whole stay in the Chernobyl zone. The radiation level in Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is on average slightly higher than the natural background radiation, however, the dose of radiation received in 1 day spent in Chernobyl and Pripyat will not exceed 4 microsieverts (4% per day of the daily nuclear power plant safety norms in EU), which is equivalent to approximately 4 hours on an intercontinental flight. Whilst visiting the Chernobyl power plant, you will benefit from maximum safety measures; there is a limited (non hazardous) amount of beta radiation present. In addition to maximum safety measures, CHERNOBYLwel.come takes care of all documents, permits, transport, insurance, dining, a qualified guide and some surprises.

Furthermore, we will provide the most in-depth, most photogenic, and most adventurous trip to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Guaranteed.
