Serious trip! so much to see and take in. A completely different kind of tour that you will only come across a similar landscape in a post-modern city like that of Detroit. Beautiful to those with the peculiar eye ;) scary to some, interesting and an adventure for anyone. Sasha

Comprehensive with great guides and location choices. Was able to book last minute for a reasonable price. Be sure to order the Geiger Counter and do not pay for "lunch", which everyone gets, if you want to eat it.

Our group of 18 people was late to arrive at the pickup point (which is admittedly quite difficult to find!) and our guides waited for us. The transportation was very comfortable and the guides were very interesting and informative and in general made the tour so much more
