One of the most beautiful places on earth is fitting to be the final resting place for many who have given all during WWII. Whether you take a formal tour or go on your own, this is a must see location for any American (Brit or Canadian) who visits France.

We had a fantastic day with our guide Vanessa, a New Zealand Couple and a fellow from Australia. Everything was professional and organised. We were picked up as scheduled in a brand new minivan and after a quick pick up at Bayeux we headed to Mont St Michel. Vanessa was relaxed, informative and knowledgeable. We learnt a great deal about... More

My cousin fought in Normandy in WW2 and was killed in action on 2nd August 1944. My wife and made a trip to Normandy to pay our respects. We hired Pierre-Samuel from Normandy Panorama for two tours: The first was a ‘standard’ half-day tour covering the capture of Pegasus Bridge and the British / Canadian landings on the D-Day beaches....

Thank you for sharing your experience. We don't get many demands like yours so it was a delight to organize this with you. The fact that you planned this ahead gave us good time to prepare, and Pierre-Samuel was very dedicated to the researches. We're thrilled to read that it exceeded your expectations.

We visited the American cemetery and the experience was moving, to say the least. Walking on Utah Beach and visiting the cemetery where 9,000+ U.S. Military personnel rest in peace was a moving experience. I highly recommend this tour even though it was a 13-hour day trip from Paris.

I was reading my Rick Steve's travel book, which highly recommended booking a private tour. Rick suggested Normandy Panorama. So we booked 2 tours with Normandy Panorama - one for the Mont St. Michel and one for the Normandy Beaches. Vanessa drove us to Mont St. Michel from the charming town of Bayeaux. The Mont was so amazing and special.... More

My husband and I took a cruise of Northern Europe. The Cruise line did not offer an excursion to the D-Day sights. Thank Goodness! As a result, we were fortunate to book a Private Tour from the port Le Havre. Our Normandy Panorama Tour guide, Katie, picked us up directly from the exit of our cruise ship. Katie is a... More

Another bucket list item checked off! This tour group does a great job and hits a lot of the major WWII sites - Ste Mere Eglise, Airborne Museum, Normandy D-Day beaches, Pointe du Hoc, German cemetery and the American Cemetery. The history and stories coming from the tour guide really make the sites come alive. There is adequate time at... More

My interest in the Normandy D-Day Beaches tour stemmed from my father's participation in the US Navy during WWII, and in particular the D-Day invasion. 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. Our Normandy Panorama guide, Pierre,... More
