    Guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the day perfect! He was great and patient with kids as well.

    Amazing! Igor is so organized and prepared, friendly and accomodating and a wealth of knowledge. He was willing to flex to what we wanted to see, he prepared in advance for people with unusual requests, he had a multimedia presentation with videos, interviews, and other items we could watch while we drove from one place to the next. Igor is a must to book for an informative Normandy tour!

    What we were able to visit was memorable but with a wheelchair options are limited. At first the driver was not going to take us because of the wheelchair

    Awesome! Igor is a friendly and knowledgeable guide. Great day of learning. A full day of fun. Well worth it.

    First and foremost, our guide, Igor, is amazing at this job! He picked us up at our hotel which was out of his way. His breadth and depth of knowledge coupled with his multi faceted approach to passing on that knowledge, provided for an entertaining and fascinating day of learning. We had three generations on our tour - my father in law, me and my son. We enjoyed Igor's passion for the history and heritage of the region. His numerous accounts of different people involved in D-Day brought a human side to the immense military operation. I was very impressed with attention to detail and concern for our enjoyment. He made sure we did not miss the lowering of the US Flag at the Omaha Beach Cemetery and the playing of Taps. So Powerful!. Can't say enough. His price is very reasonable and so worth it. You will not regret booking with Igor.

    Well worth it. Igor, our guide was excellent. He was very enthusiatic, passionate about the history of Normandy, full of facts.
    We saw The Pegasus Bridge, Museum, Omaha ,Juno Beaches. Pointe du Hoc. At the Amercian cemetary, Igor timed it so we would see the flags lowered. Very humbling. Enjoyed a delicious lunch at Omaha Restaurant. There was just 2 of us. He said he can take up to 8,but does not combine groups
