This summer (mid-to-late July, is what I'm currently looking at), a group of friends and I are going to visit Chernobyl, the infamous nuclear disaster site in Ukraine. As of right now, the group seems to want to go, but I would love to have some advice for anyone who has been to Chernobyl/Pripyat. 1) What would be the most trustworthy tour guide to go through? I am looking at both Tour2Chernobyl and Tour Kiev. For anyone that has been, could you guide me to a trustworthy tour guide? 2) Currently, my group is about eight people. I'm aiming to get at least ten people going. The price in a "regular" sized group is about $140 - $160 per person and that is only the tour in Kiev, Chernobyl and Pripyat. Do the companies provide some help from getting from ____ to Kiev? I live in Texas, and would like to know the price in total. I have emailed both websites about both, but I can never get a solid answer. 3) I am not worried about radiation like the world is, as I know I would have to spend at least two weeks straight before any sickness were to occur. But, because there is radiation, and I need a geiger counter, where would be the cheapest place to buy one? Please let me know anything you have knowledge of, as I would highly appreciate it. Thanks.
