We really enjoyed our tour of the Canadian D-Day Beaches tour by Igor. Igor was very well prepared with pictures and the history of the area. I had a list of our local soldiers who died in WW2 and Igor did an extensive search to see if any were buried in the Canadian cemetery we visited. I would highly recommend this tour!
