Igor was most informative regarding our D-Day beaches tour. He was well informed, approachable in terms of questions that we had, and had a genuine interest in his subject matter.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this very nice review Ms Miller. I wish you and your family a very nice end of summer. Igor

Ann PotterUnited States
Outstanding experience. Igor has done extensive research and has an amazing collection of photos, old video clips and maps. He even had recorded music from that era which played in the background as we traveled. It was very important for my husband to visit this site and Igor made it a memorable experience. We would highly recommend Igor for a meaningful, personalized tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ms Potter, It was a real pleasure to show you these sites which are so meaningful to me and to our Freedom. Thanks again for your wonderful comment, and again, it was very touching to be with and your husband. Igor

Lynn McCarthyPeoria, IL, United States
WOW! I don't know how to begin to describe our day with Igor. This was one of the very best experiences my husband and I have ever had in our years of travel. Igor had communicated with me prior to our trip. I felt as though I knew him when we finally met. The highlight was visiting the grave of my husband's uncle in the American Cemetery. Igor had arranged a ceremony for us. Visiting the DDay beaches, the little cafes and the little country roads missed by the tour buses topped off a wonderful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ms Mc Carthy, Again, it was a really special moment to be able to share with you and your husbands thoses moments by Joseph T. Finnigan's grave. Have a great trip in England. Igor
Pam MckenneyUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ms c Kenney, It was a real pleasure to show you Normandy last week. I saw you on the next day with your group from the Seabourn Quest. You and your husband, seemed very happy in Ste Mère Eglise. Have a great trip. ! Igor
John HoldenSurprise, ARIZONA, United States
Igor was MOST knowledgeable and very personable. He had an extensive full day planned for us starting out at 8AM. My wife and I had been to Normandy, but this tour took us to a number of sites we had not seen before. It was a busy, long day- and with the large van and driver , it was a most enjoyable tour of some very significant sites. Make sure that you request time at the American Memorial Museum as well as the cemetery. We were very pleased with our day without a doubt. Thanks, Igor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Holden. It was a pleasure showing you Normandy. Igor
Larry MarshUnited States
Outstandingly! This is our third Toursbylocals guide. They have all been excellent, but Igor was exceptional, the very essence of what a LOCAL guide should be. He was truly a font of knowledge.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Marsh. It was a real pleasure to show you my Normandy.
Becky MacMillanUnited States
Two couples hired Igor for a tour of Normandy. He picked us up from our cruise ship and we began a day of touring the area, ending at the Normandy American Cemetery. We all agreed it was the highlight of or trip. Igor was professional, astonishingly knowledgable and friendly; his English was great. We wanted a more personalized experience than that offered by the cruise ship, and Igor certainly delivered. We would certainly hire him again if we were in that area of France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for this nice comment Ms Mac Millan.
Steven SeligmanUnited States
Igor was fun, professional, extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and well prepared. We went round trip from La Havre, Honfleur, Aromonches, WWII Radar and Bunker Museum, D-Day Invasion Memorial, Museum, Video, American Cemetery, and back to cruise terminal all in 9.5 hours, including lunch on the water. This was the best (also moving and enlightening) tour of 10 we took on a cruise around the British Isles. Not to be missed if you are anywhere near Normandy. Thank you Igor for a wonderful experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Than you very much Mr Selligman. It was a pleasure having you on one of my tours.
Ellen BoerUnited States
He was extremely receptive to planning a Normandy itinerary off the beaten track. We really appreciated his energy and flexibility to follow the last days before the Germans retreated from Normandy at the end of August 1944 . He has a fine small van and was an excellent driver. His more typical itinerary in Normandy is also excellent.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Ms Boer. It was a real pleasure to have you on my tour this week.
