Our tour included the Falaise castle, the Bayeux Tapestry and the Caen castle. We also customized the tour with a visit to the birth village of our immigrant ancestor. Igor uses these sites to link together the story of William the Conqueror and his successors, and he provides many details about the events from the period. We enjoyed our time with Igor and would recommend him to anyone with an interest in the history of Normandie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Mr Leaf for this very nice review. Have a great summer.

Igor provided my wife and I with an once-in-a-lifetime fantastic tour or Medieval Normandy. His grasp of the history of the region is impressive, and he answered all of my questions, including many on the era of William the Conquer and the first Normans/Vikings. I highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Mr Jensen, Thank you very much for this very nice comment. I wish you and your wife a very happy New Year and lots of good times wherever you will be stationed next year. Best regards.

I finally understand the political and historical origins of Normandy and England. Thanks, Igor!
Igor is very knowledgeable, interesting and attentive; he arrived promptly at the cruise terminal. He added a few perks to the tour such as fresh croissants and had us taste some cider and cheeses. There were some timing problems so that we didn't get to enough time in some places and that was very disappointing.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Ms Greene, I am really sorry you did not enjoy the tour, but the tour had as you knew before a very busy schedule including a nice lunch in Honfleur, you did not like. And I am really sorry about that. The tour was meant to be a "private" one which means that is tailored for people who share the same interests and have the same way of travelling. It was not the case, and I am really sorry about that. I managed though to show you everything which was planned including the tastings. Best regards.

Igor was knowledgeable and very flexible. He was able to adjust the tour based on the fact we had been in Normandy for two days and had seen many of the sites.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ms Butts. It was a pleasure showing you "my"Normandy".
