Advanced one-day tour with the visit to the Chernobyl NPP

An extended tour to Chernobyl is a one-day tour, which is actually a continuation of the two-day tour, but in the one day format. In other words, this is an excursion where you can see those locations and objects that tourists see on the second day of a two-day tour to Chernobyl. In order to make the excursion even more exciting, we added to the advanced tour program a visit to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
In the advanced tour you will see not only the reactor control panel and visit the station itself, but you will also visit the liquidators' equipment graveyard, where the remains of helicopters and other equipment actively involved in the liquidation of the Chernobyl accident were preserved.
If you have already been in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, have seen Chernobyl and Pripyat, have been to the DUGA, we always have something to show you. An extended tour to Chernobyl is the most detailed program that can be seen in one day.
With us, excursions to Chernobyl will always be safe, interesting and comfortable!
