In the 18.6-mile (30-kilometer) zone, pass the derelict villages of Zalissja and Kopachi (deliberately buried to reduce contamination). Stop at the decontaminated Red Forest and Pripyat to see its decaying buildings and amusement park. View reactor 4, encased in a concrete sarcophagus, and check out the Soviet-era Duga-1 over-the-horizon radar system. In Chernobyl town, see the monument to Chernobyl’s firefighters. View the fire station and abandoned decontamination vehicles. Your tour ends at the original departure point.

A very nice tour operated by Igor and Elena. After some brief confusion at the beginning involving some aspirin we got underway and had a phenomenal time. Elena definitely knows all things radiation and definitely stuck to the rules. Thanks guys
