We headed to Chernobyl for a 1 day tour with Green tour, which was fantastic. Chernobyl as you can imagine was an amazing experience and I highly recommend using Green tour to do so. We was picked up promptly outside of our hotel in Kiev city centre. We were greeted by Konstantin and Jane, both of which were very knowledge and both are a credit to your service. They went above and beyond what was expected of them and gave us information of other things to do around Kiev. Both of them made the trip that little bit extra special.

Great tour
We had a great trip! Guide was very knowledgeable.
Amazing Tour!
Just to say a great thanks to all at Green Tour, my Dad and I did both the 3 hour city tour and the day trip to Chernobyl and Pripyat...... both were amazing experiences and very professionally done with great guides who were able to tell in great detail the history behind everything..... really great and would highly recommend.
Excellent day out
There were 11 people in our group in total with a driver and tour guide. Our guide spoke excellent English and was able to give us plenty of information about Chernobyl and Pripyat. The transport was very comfortable and the documentaries about the disaster before arrival was a great way if breaking the journey and learning more before arrival. The whole day felt well managed and at no point did we feel hurried along. Looking at some of the larger groups we were really pleased we booked with Green Ukraine. Whilst there are other companies with more Trip Advisor reviews our group really felt that this trip was value for money. Thank you again for the opportunity to visit a place which we need to learn from

My favourite part of Kiev!
By far my favourite thing I did in Kiev! Snzezhana and her mother were so incredibly kind and felt like being at home while away and travelling. Snzezhana picked my friend and myself up from our hostel and brought us to their apartment where we were greeted by her lovely parents. Her mom had made delicious home-made juice, I believe called kompot, which we sipped throughout our cooking class. We chatted and heard about life in Ukraine while learning to make delicious borscht and three different kinds of varenyky. I can't wait to show off my new cooking skills for my family at home! The best part was eating our creations...SO good! I can't recommend this trip enough! I promise you won't be disappointed!
Great tour
The tour toook us theough the center of kiev. We did not know what to expect but we got very good information about the coty/its people and the history. She also tool us to see some shops and pointed us to restaurants/bars.
Fabulous personalised tour!
I got lucky and was the only person on this tour so I was able to personalise it a bit to what I was interested to know about. Katerina, the guide from Green Tours Ukraine, was wonderful - knowledgeable about Ukrainian history and a pleasure to spend hours wandering the city center with. She also provided me with a lot of advice for the rest of my time in Kiev, along with where to shop/buy gifts for people. Would highly recommend the company she works for to anyone looking for a good tour at a very reasonable price.
Visit Kiev Maidan

We thoroughly enjoyed the guidance and tutelage of the woman leading this experience and would definitely recommend it.
