|1 & 2
Join YPT for a tour in a land that we know and love, the nuclear wasteland of Chernobyl and unrecognised country of Transnistria!
The tour kicks off in Kiev and finishes in Bucharest with much to see and do in between. We can help and advise travel arrangements to and from these two cities.
We have split the tour into two groups with the options of doing either one part or combining the two. Group One will be visiting not only Pripyat (Chernobyl), but also doing the extreme missile base tour, as well as sampling the night time delights on a bar crawl. Our contacts in Pripyat mean, we can usually sneak in some secret sites that we are not allowed to blog about! This is an exclusive private tour that will be strictly capped at ten people to ensure we see all that we are not supposed to.
After Group One leave us in Kiev, Group Two will continue firstly to Odessa, then onto Tiraspol, Capital of the breakaway republic of Transnistria. If you do not know anything about the place, Google it. If you want off the beaten track, this is it. We really mix it up here by having one night in a very, very Soviet hotel before transferring to a slightly more luxurious offering in the countryside… a true Soviet time warp. Following a few nights here, we visit Moldova, the only ex-Soviet republic to vote the communists back in, before taking the overnight bus to Bucharest for a Ceausescu tour of one of our favourite cities. Bucharest is also a flight hub which will make it easier to arrange onward flights.
We offer discounts to all returning customers; contact us if you have any questions or if you would like to book your place today!
