Svetlana was an extremely knowledgeable guide for the Normandy area and the DDay invasion. We saw sights that we would not have seen on a larger group tour. She was very flexible as far as any itinerary change and provided us with a great driver. I would highly recommend Svetlana for anyone needing a competent guide in the Cherbourg area.She has done her research.
