Vanessa took us to Normandy for one day. Her knowledge of the history of the landings coupled with her passion for the preservation of the individual and collective stories was quite outstanding. Vanessa simplified what could have been complex data to fascinating commentary. She made what we expected to be a good day an exceptional experience. It was magic. I... More

We had originally booked two tours with this company (Normandy & Mont St. Michel), however, because our itinerary changed and they don't do the Mont St. Michel tour on Sundays, we only used them for the D-Day Landing Beaches tour. True to their cancellation policy they refunded the pre-paid amount in its entirety for the Mont St. Michel tour. Our... More

Normandy, and everyone we met there, was truly a treasure. But what keeps us talking about this trip, as though it were yesterday, was "the story". A good story demands a good story-teller and there is where this experience and this adventure came to life! Our guide, Pierre-Samuel, collected us (promptly on-time) in our hotel lobby - at once we... More

To tell you the truth the D-day beaches and the associated places in Normandy where the landings took place will make you feel amazing.Simply imagine yourself being there during the time when the events that shaped the world as we know it now took place. The Normandy panorama tour we took though, adds to your experience immensely. Our guide Pierre... More

This was our first time in Normandy and we opted for the 8 hour tour focusing on the American beaches. The pictures and movies you've seen about this historical place do not do it justice. Pierre did a superb job talking about the area and all the things that didn't go as planned that fateful day as our brave soldiers... More

We used Normandy Panorama for all of our tours while in Normandy. Vanessa was great in helping me plan our trip as we wanted to do private tours to maximize our time. They were very accommodating and everything turned out better than expected. I wanted a personal touch to the WWII tours as my Grandfather served in Normandy. Pierre-Samuel took... More

Adeline was our tour guide for a half day tour (all we had time for) of Utah beach & Sainte Mère Eglise. She shared her energy, passion and knowledge of the Normandy region & D-Day information with us. She stopped at various minor sites (churches, cemetery, memorial, etc) along the way, which was wonderful. The tour was everything we had... More

We took the all day tour of D-Day sites. Adeline was our driver and guide. She knows her subjects, World War II and D Day in Europe very thoroughly. At all the sites she gave background information and insights into the momentous events of D- Day. We learned about the heroism of the American Rangers at Pointe du Hoc and... More
