Return to Soviet times

loved the cold war history, we received the story on every building. The time was adequate and the guide was very accommodating of our requests. The Soviet radar towers were something I had never been aware of.

Persönliche Tour mit den wichtgsten Sehenswürdigkeiten der Zone
Rafael_K
, Aug 2021
Meine größte Sorge war, dass der Ausflug nach Tschernobyl evtl. unpersönlich wird, weil man nur einer von vielen Touristen ist, die hier "durchgeschleust" werden. Das Gegenteil war der Fall: Unsere Gruppe bestand aus nur 10 Personen. Es blieb viel Zeit für Fragen und an den gezeigten Stellen der Zone trafen wir nur auf wenige andere Besucher (CORONA sei Dank?). Reiseführerin und Fahrer konnten durch Anpassung der Route spontan darauf reagieren, dass Prypiat kurzzeitig gesperrt war, sodass wir am Ende des Tages trotzdem alle Punkte wie geplant abhaken konnten. Man spürt die Liebe zur Zone bei den Veranstaltern. Sie versuchen auf die Wünsche der Teilnehmer einzugehen, sofern es im Rahmen der gesetzlichen Vorgaben vor Ort möglich ist. Auch im Voraus zur Tour war die elektronische Kommunikation und Einweisung sehr angenehm. Top und gerne wieder! Einizger Verbesserungswunsch: Das Motiv des T-Shirts ( I can't keep calm ...)
