Igor was amasing. His organisation skills are outstanding: he came to meet with me on time, was very welcoming and planned our 3-hours journey in advance. Igor knew a lot about history, culture, historical facts and famous people. A walk with him was nice and relaxed, but at the same time he was showing a lot of different building and sharing interesting facts. I would recommend Igor to anyone who woudl like to have a quality time in Rouen. thank you.
