Review about Grand Tour of Karelia by

Rating: 5
We enjoyed this tour. Beautiful nature, nice people with their complicated history and a very knowledgeable guides. We learned about the local people's traditions, farming and daily life. Kizhi Island - my favorite, was an interesting isolated place , but well visited . We found a good variety of crafts to buy - matryosha dolls. woven items , honey, wood beads, dried herbs, linens, and many other beautiful souvenirs. All in all, it was a very good trip with nice places and people. Marina and John
