5 star ratingDefinitely, one of the best days of my life! Definitely, one of the best days of my life! Honestly, since I stopped playing the legendary Ukrainian computer game "S.T.A.L.K.E.R", I stopped dreaming of visiting Chernobyl too. However, my best friend managed to ignite a spark in my mind, so I was quite captivated and excited to explore that renowned place. I am convinced that awesome people create the memorable experience of touring around famous sightseeing more than places themselves. And in our case, people who have shown us all beauty of Chernobyl were lovely, passionate, professional, and endowed with an excellent sense of humor. Sasha (Alexandra Chalenko) and Charlie (Charlie Tango) really made my day. I couldn't ask them more except for the extra hours of the trip (but we were tired, though). Hopefully, it's not the last trip with those positive guys. Highly recommend booking a trip with this company. You wouldn't regret it!

5 star ratingDay trip to Pripyat This trip was amazing! We saw lots of fantastic places, we were so lucky with weather, cause we made nice pictures of Pripyat covered with snow. Our guide told us a lot about the history of the Zone itself, how life is going now here. Highly recommend to visit it with Contamination Zone! This company did something I thought was nice, they took food for the stray dogs. I did not see any other company doing that.

5 star ratingWell trained professionals Since the beginning the trip was very well organized, the team clearly knew what they were doing. I was a bit hesitant about the safety of taking this tour but I felt completely safe, they explained everything to us and answered any questions we had ; for both safety and details about the place. Thank you Maria! …
