A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour included the Falaise castle, the Bayeux Tapestry and the Caen castle. We also customized the tour with a visit to the birth village of our immigrant ancestor. Igor uses these sites to link together the story of William the Conqueror and his successors, and he provides many details about the events from the period. We enjoyed our time with Igor and would recommend him to anyone with an interest in the history of Normandie.
