Impossible is nothing. Whether you are a passionate professional, journalist going to uncover new perspectives, ambitious movie maker, unordinary explorer, photo hunter....or just a person who likes to wander around at his own pace with his own preferences and in the most comfortable way. Then this is the Chernobyl tour that hits your list. Favorite tour option for groups of friends especially in post-Corona pandemic times when you do not want to be sitting in a bus with strangers.


Private tours, which allow visitors to the Chernobyl zone the opportunity to see the places usually hidden from group tours and to enter parts of the city of Pripyat and the Exclusion Zone that are rarely seen on tours at all. Additionally, you can cherry-pick the locations you are interested in and it is still the only tour you can find where you meet and talk to the real heroes of Chernobyl – liquidators and witnesses. You can choose from 1-5 days, or even more (in this case, please contact Customer Care directly) and accommodate for any number of travelers (the maximum so far is 150 people in one group, can you beat that?).


From the very first contact until the farewell at your address in Kyiv, you will experience the premium service for a reasonable price, of course all included. That attitude will not pamper you, but instead, will give you the freedom to access even the no-go places, while enhancing your adrenaline rush. Your Chernobyl program will be settled the way that even at the most touristic spots you will have a chance to be the only one. Whether it is the swimming pool, new sarcophagus over the Chernobyl power station, Hotel Polissya, hospital, kindergarden, ferris wheel ... or even places in Pripyat that have rarely been visited like the morgue, open-air dance floor, abandoned tank ISU-152, radioactive grab, underground shooting range, gasmask storage, radioactive soil laboratory, greenhouses, houseboat, abandoned cranes, the unfinished power plant units No.5 and 6 and more. Not enough? To really time-travel back to the Soviet Union you are welcome to drive the legendary Soviet car, Volga seen in Chernobyl series and, even dress up like a liquidator.


Your own professional and skilled guide, who can speak one of the seven offered languages will make sure your program will be based on your preferences and should you have any special requests, please feel free to ask either Customer Care or the guide on your tour. And, for the private tours only, we offer you a possibility to get know your guide via videocall.

Thanks to this unique experience you can fly over the Amusement park, stand on the top of the DUGA radar or walk through the grammar school, hospital or kindergarten. The shivering moments that enhance your Chernobyl private tour.



Visiting the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone without visiting the Power Plant itself is like going to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower, or worse, not seeing the Notre-Dame. You were there, but the experience wasn’t 101%, right? With a (up to) 4-hour safe visit of the (in)famous Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, you’ll maximize your Chernobyl experience to the top! Get all dressed up in the white overalls used back in the Soviet Union by the power plant workers to wander around the golden corridors connecting all units, to see the memorial of Valeriy Khodymchuk – engineer who was never found, to enter the underground safety room, Unit 3 Main Circulation Pump room, Central Control Room and most of all, the Unit Control Room with a chance to press the legendary AZ-5 button, which was pressed too late on that very night of April 26, 1986. Now you are becoming an insider of Chernobyl. One of just 0.1% of tourists who visit the Chernobyl exclusion zone annually enter the Chernobyl power plant itself. Not an everyday treat, but it is worth the 159 €/person (extended Control room unit 4 excursion: 179 €/person)


Since Establishing our tours in 2008 with the promise of making visits to Chernobyl finally safe and accessible for international travelers, we keep on improving our safety procedures not just by giving you free of charge dosimeters (Geiger-Muller Counters), respirators, disinfection, and taking you through the verified and cleaned paths, but we will also provide you with at least 3 dosimetric controls a day so you will feel comfortable on your journey back home. Also, we help you leave your Chernobyl legacy with free postcards, a free t-shirt and a free ticket to the Chernobyl museum in Kyiv. The Chernobyl Private Tour with CHERNOBYLwel.come will become your life changing tour, where you do not need to take care of anything else other than hitting your list of places you are excited about with stories we provide. Thank you for not compromising on quality when traveling to Chernobyl.

During the Corona pandemic, we have ensured the absolute safety of you and your fellow travelers by an airline-level disinfection and precautionary measurements: temperature check, face masks, gloves, antibacterial gel, disinfected buses and cars etc. Together we can make sure you come back home safe and thrilled. For more details please read THIS BLOG. 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.
