I grew up hearing my dad's stories about his time in the Navy's Civil Engineer Corps in England preparing for the invasion as well as his landing on Utah Beach.

I must admit that I wasn't looking forward to this tour. I was going for my husband. With that said, this became one of my favourite tours. Our guide was extremely organized and knowledgeable. She was able to modify the tour as we had two children. I would definitely recommend this tour.

I did a D-Day tour with Pierre as the guide. It was a very interesting tour and covered a lot of sights. Pierre is very knowledgeable and provided a lot of information. It was a bit of information overkill but there is so much to learn. My only slight criticism is that we did not have enough time to look... More

Normandy Panorama provided an outstanding guide and tour for my one-day visit to Mont St. Michel. Vanessa was funny, informative, and really knowledgeable about the whole of Mont St. Michel including the history and the architecture. I never felt rushed or like I was missing out on anything important. She was ready with answers to all my questions. Highly recommend... More

Our Guide Adeline Picked us up as arranged on time in a very nice and neat Mini Bus. It did not take us a long time before we could see Mont St. Michel for the 1st time. What a site. On the way there Adeline was very informative and told us a lot about the Abbey and the history. She... More

While the itinerary was probably the same as a lot of other companies our guide was really excellent. His English was outstanding and he was always engaging and knowledgeable.
