    Our Tour of Normandy was the best tour I have ever been on in any country. Igor’s knowledge and passion for the Normandy region is infectious. So many extra touches that made every stop include a human connection. The views and stories of those brave men was humbling. The towns people and their appreciation of the of all the servicemen who liberated them from German occupation was touching. Igor was the most charismatic tour guide. He was able to modify the tour for a special stop for one of our guests that served in the 82 Airborne. You will not be disappointed with any if his tours. Thank you Igor.
