Guys as you may have understood I did a tour in the area of alienation thanks to Contamination Zone. Traveling here is a real life experience. It makes you discover a world still unknown and demonized by us. I thank a lot my Italian friend and partner Eugenia who supported/ endured me, guided and helped me throughout the trip. Other thanks go to Alexandra Chalenko, the best guide you can have for the tour. I have a lot of respect for her and I'm really glad that I met her. She is a sunny and kind person, always available to answer all questions and with an absurd knowledge about historical events of the place and anecdotes.
I recommend if you want to take a trip like this contact me or contact who I tagged 😘😘

5 star ratingthe best tours of Chernobyl zone I've used these guys twice now for trips to the zone over the years and I'm already thinking of going back again. They give you what you want from a tour in seeing the bits you want to see, such as the iconic places such as the ferris wheel to the lesser seen parts like the smaller villages you cant see on the bigger tours. I cant recommend these guys enough and I've sent a fair few friends their way now.
I've attached a few photos that I took on my last trip with these guys.

Most amazing tour I have ever had! It felt like I was traveling with good friends not on a boring tour. I’ll always book with this company again and highly recommend it for anyone wanting a unique and exciting adventure
