We hired Vanessa for a one day tour of Omaha and Juno Beaches and related sites. She was not only very knowledgeable but extremely personable and great company. She also went above and beyond in terms of helping with train tickets, schedules and making the entire visit as enjoyable and problem free as possible. I highly recommend Vanessa to anyone... More

We did the tour on April 7, 2015. Pierre was a fantastic guide. He speaks English like a native and has an advanced degree in military history, so he really enjoys giving the tour and has in-depth knowledge of the area. When we first started I looked at the map and asked about Pegasis Bridge. Though not part of our... More

Pierre-Samuel, of Normany Panorama, is an excellent tour guide and student of history. He led our group on a day long trip, showing us St Mere Eglise, the Airborne Museum, Point Du Hoc, Utah beach , Brecourt Manor, Omaha and the American Cemetery at Colleville sur mer. At every step he was able to make the events of D-Day tangible... More

We toured the Normandy Beaches, Point Du Hoc, the American Cemetery during the flag ceremony and Saint Mere Eglise with Pierre and his knowledge was so deep on every aspect of the war. He made the experience personal with details of his grandparents' experiences during the war and really made the day interesting for all 4 of our kids with... More

Valeria is an outstanding tour guide. She speaks English very well and knows her history plus shared charts along the way that made it easy to comprehend what happened on the dreadful day in June of 1944. This tour is a must and be sure to have the Utah Beach mussels at the lunch break

Natascha was our guide….personable and friendly. Great job in explanations. Very detailed. Knew her facts and made it easy to comprehend the entire situation of what happened on D- day. The different locations we stopped made it come into focus. Wanted more time at the American cemetery, but being there when the flag was taken down was memorable. Interesting that... More

My husband and I were two of six in a minivan with Natasha. She is very knowledgable and is anxious to share her information. We'd done a little homework before going by watching some History Channel documentaries. Hedgerows, for example, take on a whole new meaning when you see the size and density for yourselves. Our tour began in the... More

Took a full day tour of many of the Normandy invasion sites. Included Omaha and Utah beaches, St. Mare Eglise, the American Cemetary, and other sites. Our guide Stefan, was retired French military, and was a great source of knowledge. Overall, a great experience.
