If you want to go to the beaches, the Museums, Mont St. Michelle, the churches, the cemeteries, hire Sveta today! I spent four excellent days with her, and in spite of her sharing her knowledge with me, I never will know as much as she does about D-Day and beyond, plus Medieval times. I will hire her for my next trip to tour Brittany.
