We had a spectacular day visiting Giverny with Igor. He was extremely knowledgeable and able to share many details of Monet, his history, inspiration and art. He was especially good at fielding the many questions from my 3 children. Giverny was a beautiful place, after visiting I have a more profound understanding of Monet's work. I highly recommend Igor as a tour guide for Giverny!!
