A Recent Review of this tour

Igor is extremely professional and very knowledgeable regarding WWII history. He arranged a customized tour to the places where my ancestor was during WWII. This tour was so meaningful because Igor took the time out of his busy schedule to research the specific areas where my ancestor was during WWII in order to take me there on his tour. I will never forget this incredible experience. Words cannot express enough my gratitude for the time and effort it took Igor to orchestrate this customized tour.
