Yes! I was in Kiev for about a week, in which I managed to have some time to arrange a short trip to Chernobyl. The trip was amazing, it definitely exceeded my expectations. It was surreal to see both the abandoned city of Pripyat, where nature is slowly but surely taking over everything, but also Chernobyl where people live and work. It was a lot less strict than I thought it would be, as I could walk almost everywhere, get inside buildings etc. You get checked upon leaving, but it was very informal. Driving past the Red Forest (at high speed) was maybe the most extraordinary, as the Geiger counter only kept going and going.

I would recommend going there btw, it's so surreal that you should see it for yourself. And... I only saw very few people in the area, which was nice compared to busy Kiev. I would want to go back one day to visit it again, as the time did not allow me to see most of it yet.

Was it organized by an Ukrainian tour or a Western Europe tour? I read that Ukrainian agencies were cheaper, but with much less security concerns... For example, Western Europe agencies recommend to throw away your shoes and clothes after you visited the zone, and even your camera!

It was arranged with a Ukrainian tour operator, with a Ukrainian guy driving on Lithuanian plates (our car for the day was a Lithuanian Superb  =) ). Price was oké, it was a private tour (all documents were arranged by them) for max. two persons. They picked me up and returned me from/to the hotel in Kiev, including a guided tour with a local person who seemed to know a lot about the area. Too bad that my Russian is still bad, and so was his English  :D . There were some security checks, but it was not very thorough. The leaflets I got were quite straight-forward though, as in to keep away from particular objects, don't touch everything, and make sure you don't take anything with you. And most of all: It's at your own risk. I read about throwing away stuff too, but that was not the case at all. You just make sure you get rid of any dirt on your shoes before leaving the area, and that nothing fell into your pockets or whatever and you're good to go.

I saw only one (old) car, and a few buses, trucks and cranes in and around Chernobyl and Pripyat. I could not find any vehicle with plates, although I haven't been on the roof of the fire department building. I was told to not go up there, probably due to safety reasons, but I think that some of the vehicles located there might still have their plates.
