Military Tour Review

I chose Pavel to plan my Ukraine vacation for many reasons. His website is such a great resource. Every element of the tour is explained in detail so you know what you are doing, seeing and paying for. Other Ukrainian tour agencies I checked out on the internet do not offer such a wide range of activities and sights to see. Pavel speaks excellent English and is a good backup photographer when you are too busy having fun to take pictures. When Pavel takes you around to different destinations in Ukraine he makes sure to recruit the local experts and guides to explain what you are looking at. Even though Ukraine is in the news for having a military conflict, it is a huge country and the military action is only in a small area. I felt safe the whole time. Plenty of ATM machines, affordable food and hotels, and free internet all around. Peter is a good driver, request him too.

Highlights

I loved driving the BTR-60 Armored personnel carrier at the Shampaniya interactive museum. The BTR is similar to the American Stryker but the Stryker only has been around for 15 years and the BTR much longer. If you are crazy enough and want to scare your mom, lie on the ground as it drives over you. Awesome collection of Afghan war and WW2 weapons and many activities, bring extra money! As a criticism, I think the museum needs more sizes of reproductions of historical uniforms for photo shoots. Humans today around the world are much larger than in the 1940s. Cool to know if they do fit you are posing in historically authentic uniforms.

Buran is the super high tech space shuttle program flown only once by the Soviet Union. It went into space and back completely automated with no crew onboard. That was a massive surprise to me as I had never heard of it. I don’t think many Americans are aware of Soviet air and space accomplishments beyond Sputnik and Yuri Gagarin.

The nuclear missile base at Pobuzke was an extreme visit too. Going deep underground into the command bunker you felt the seriousness of the place. Once the command center was powered up it was strange to see the 1970s computers, button lights, and gauges flash on ready for the button push to end the world.

For the authentic Red Army Experience, drink some locally made vodka and hook up with a local girl ;)
