What photographers have said about Chernobyl tours?

SAFETY

Just a few people every year are able to participate in a workshop in Chernobyl and Pripyat and really cherish the atmosphere which cannot be described in words. The route of this photographic workshop tour is designed to avoid almost all of the places with a higher radiation level, or visit places with a higher radiation (still not harmful to one’s health) that is shrunk to a minimum. This tour is safe; the amount of radiation during the five days spent in the Chernobyl zone will not exceed 20 microsieverts – non harmful dose of radiation.
