Excellent tour of Kizhi Island and Petrozavodsk
We had an excellent tour to Kishi island from St. Petersburg. Our train tickets (luxury!) to and from Petrozavodsk were booked in advance. Luckily we'd had a bit of experience with the excellent russian trains before this so we had no problem. We were picked up at the train station at Petrozavodsk and taken for a short walking tour around the town before being dropped at the hydrofoil to Kizhi island and given very clear instructions on when and how to catch the hydrofoil back. At the Island, our guide was once again ready and she was a lovely lady who gave us an excellent tour of the old wooden church.
