Today’s deal of the day is flights from Dublin to Kiev, Ukraine, a group tour to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and 4 nights in a well rated central apartment for €239 pp!
I have been asked lately about tours to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone and to the town of Pripyat, due to the popularity of a new TV series. It’s fair to assume that visiting a place with such a harrowing past is not for everyone, so should you wish not to do the tour the price of the trip is €144 per person based on 2 people sharing.
Kiev is the capital city of Ukraine, bisected by the Dnieper River and known for its religious architecture, secular monuments and history museums. Kiev is also known to be Europe’s cheapest capital city with local beer costing around 60 cent!
The deal is with Ryanair leaving Dublin on Sunday the 29th of September and returning on Thursday the 3rd of October. Below is a screenshot of the flights, click on this to be brought to the Ryanair website. Please note as Ryanair have changed their baggage policy, I have added priority and 2 cabin bags to the overall price which brings the price of flights to €66 pp.
The day tour is with Viator, who are owned by TripAdvisor. This guided group tour has a pickup point near Independence Square and lasts roughly 10 hours. It will bring you to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, the abandoned town of Pripyat and many more areas. To be clear, the tour is safe but again it is a harrowing experience. The tour includes return transfers to Independence Square and lunch.
The accommodation is the centrally located Central Apartments, which are rated a superb 9 out of 10 with guests from Booking.com. The apartments are a 5-minute walk from the Saint Sophia Cathedral and Saint Michael’s Monastery. Independence Square is 500 metres from the property. Each apartment has a fully equipped kitchenette, free WiFi and air conditioning.
An apartment at Central Apartments will cost €78 per person for a 4 night stay, bringing the total cost of the flights, tour and accommodation to €239 per person.
