Another excellent tour with Igor. He certainly knows his history and his facts, and articulates everything with excellent English. He's obviously still getting used to doing the virtual "thing," so there were some awkward pauses and a bit of technological issues at the start, but they were soon forgotten.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Katz for this very kind review. Take care and see you soon for real in Normandy.

Igor's virtual tour of Mont St Michel was fantastic! He's incredibly knowledgable and passionate about the history of this amazing location. He also does a great job telling the story and engaging his audience. In this time of COVID-19, this tour was a great way to "visit" Normandy. I highly recommend this tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Selvidio. It was a real pleasure to guide you yesterday in a totally different way. See you soon on a "real " tour.

This was an amazing tour. I thought I knew a little about Mont-Saint-Michel, but after this tour realized how little I actually knew. The history is vast and very interesting, not at all boring. Igor is so passionate about the village and Abbey, it is impossible not to feel the same afterwards. We will definately visit when we are next in Paris.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ms Fabris for this very kind review. In these difficult times, when I miss so much showing you "for real " my region it wonderful to read your words. Take care, and I hope to see you soon in France.

Great foodie day. Igor was mislead by the Camembert Museum but he quickly subbed a cheese tour in Livarot which was terrific. And lunch at Moulin du Fossard....so fine. We spent two great days with Igor and thoroughly enjoyed them. Especially since it didn't rain!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ms Portz, Thank you very much for this very kind review. In these very difficult times for all of us in Tourism, it is a fresh breath to read those lines. I wish you a wonderful time at home with Jim. Best regards.

Igor is so knowledgeable about Normandy and WWII. We had a very good day. Timing our cemetery visit to coincide with the lowering of the flag and taps was quite nice. Touring the sites supplemented by relevant videos while in transit made the whole day interesting and enjoyable.

Igor was amasing. His organisation skills are outstanding: he came to meet with me on time, was very welcoming and planned our 3-hours journey in advance. Igor knew a lot about history, culture, historical facts and famous people. A walk with him was nice and relaxed, but at the same time he was showing a lot of different building and sharing interesting facts. I would recommend Igor to anyone who woudl like to have a quality time in Rouen. thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ms Sukhomlina, It was a real pleasure to be your guide today in Rouen. I wish you a very pleasant day tomorrow at your office near Rouen. Best regards.

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ms Bartlow, It was also a very special moment for me to be with you on your uncle's grave. A moment I have prepared since a very long time. I wish you a wonderful winter and Christmas time. All the best.

Igor is a fantastic guide! I brought a small group of family and friends to Normandy to visit the WWII beaches. Igor was our guide and did a terrific job. He's knowledgeable, friendly, responsive and organized. He arranged our transport from Paris and back. He made helpful food and lodging recommendations. He incorporated documentaries, movies and music into our tour. The trip wouldn't have been the same without his expertise!

See our rating for Normandy. This was our 2nd day with Igor. Yesterday it felt like we were traveling with a friend, today it felt like Igor was family. And once again took us around as though he was taking us to his favorite spots. Igor was untiring in making certain we got to see and do everything we wanted to. So thrilled we had the opportunity to spend two days together. Igor, thanks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ms Romano, It was truly a very good time to with you and your friends on these two days in Normandy and Brittany. Enjoy the salted butter, and the good wines in Bordeaux.

This may have been the best private tour we have ever taken. Igor felt like a friend who was showing us his favorite spots. We loved the use of "mixed media", movies, newscasts, speeches. We enjoyed the 40's music played in the vehicle. We loved it all. And we had another day in St Malo with Igor. Thanks!

Exceeded our espectations. We had Igor and a driver, so Igor was free to explain anything we asked. He knew to to get to the gardens first thing in the morning to avoid some of the crowds. His knowledge of France and all things tourism was great. He could discuss Norman history etc. Would highly recommend him. Pat

Igor was waiting for us outside our hotel in Rennes when we came out. He came prepared with a tablet with videos about Mont Saint Michel, and happily shared his deep knowledge throughout the tour. We were traveling with a 9-year-old who has trouble maintaining attention. He made an effort to make the tour relevant to her, and wasn't upset when she wandered a bit.
