Hi all,
I'm serching for tips and information.

Camping in Kiev, they have a secured parking, camping possibility, relativly cheap Hotel and cottages for rent.

Prices for Chernobyl are fixed and tours organized by the former intourist agency. All other companies work trhough them. Te pick up and drop off will be in the center of KIev, tour is a whole day.

We did it in 2006, 2009 and 2012.

Groetjes,

Jeroen

Hi,

You can put the coordinates in my previous answer in the searchbox in www.maps.google.com and it will show.

Address:

Hotel/camping Prolisok

Peremohy Prospekt 139 Kiev

In fact this is the Highway Lvov/Zytomir/Kiev so coming from Lvov very easy to acces.

Some Chernobyl tours

Экскурсия в Чернобыль, Припять. — Туры выходного дня — Первое экскурсионное бюро

https://www.chernobyl-tour.com/engli...&skin_name=eng

Экскурсии в Зону Отчуждения. Туры по Киеву и Украине, а также в Припять и Чернобыль

Succes,

Jeroen
