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

We took Normandy Panorama tour of sites (Pt du Hoc, Omaha Beach, Arromanches, and American Cemetary guided by Natasha. We have nothing but good things to say about our guide. She was knowledgeable, personable, spoke English well, and was very interested in what happened on D Day. We will happily recommend Normandy Panorama and Natasha. Only negative: the van was... 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.

We had a group of 15 spend a full day on a tour of Normandy area. Vanessa was our tour guide and typically has smaller groups of less than 8. She arranged for us to rent a larger bus and it could not have been better. She coordinated the billing of the bus through her company for us. A private... More

We recently spent a full 8 hours touring the highlights of the D-Day historic sites. Our guide was Adeline who was well versed, knew her facts, and was pleasant company. As important as knowing the facts, was knowing when to not speak to let guests digest the magnitude of what they have seen. Adeline did not fill quiet moments with... More

Vanessa served as tour guide for our family for a full visit of historic sites. She is a native of Normandy and was a source of great information on both the Normandy Invasion and the conditions leading up to WWII. We would recommend as "must see" Pont du Hoc, the American Cemetery, the Overlord Museum (the largest collection of intact... More

She was very knowledgeable about the sites we visited (Pont du Hoc, Utah, Omaha Beaches, the German cemetery and the American cemetery). Also valuable to us was her knowledge of the local roads and the quickest way to get from point A to point B. one... More
