A Recent Review of this tour

I would give Igor 10 stars if I could. I have taken a lot of private tours and Igor far far far surpassed every other guide. He safely drives a comfortable vehicle while playing music of the location/period or videos pertinent to what we are seeing. He has tremendous knowledge and delivers it with an easy style. He is organized with visual aids, both hard copy and digital, on the area/topic of study. He went above and beyond purchasing tickets for us for a tour we were taking on our way back to Paris.
