A Recent Review of this tour

Igor is so knowledgeable about Normandy and WWII. We had a very good day. Timing our cemetery visit to coincide with the lowering of the flag and taps was quite nice. Touring the sites supplemented by relevant videos while in transit made the whole day interesting and enjoyable.
