What You Can Expect
We had a wonderful tour with Francois as our guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the D-Day landings and was able to provide detailed information and bring to life the Canadian landings and the various locations associated with the Canadians. Very humbling and moving experience and we would highly recommend this tour. A definite highlight of our time in France this summer. Small group was a bonus - only 6 of us on this tour. Excellent experience - thank you Francois!
It was a fabulous tour. The museum was very touching.
This was a great tour. We enjoyed the main focus being on the Canadian soldiers and what they had to go through. Our tour guide Mag was very informative. The town of Bayeux is beautiful.
Excellent, well informed guide. Punctual arrival and return to hotel was much appreciated. We saw so much in one day thanks to the experienced guide. Would recommend this tour to everyone! First Class!
It was amazing to see all the historic Canadian sites. Learning about the major role Canada played in the battle of Normandy was amazing. We would have liked more time in the Juno centre however with a half day tour that would be difficult! Would recommend the tour for sure.
A wonderful tour, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and gave us so much background. It was well worth it.
Francois was an amazing tour guide!! Such a great tour!! The only thing I would change is to have more time at the Juno beach museum
The tour was everything we hoped for and then some. My hi-lite was Canada house and standing on the very landing site of our hero's .
Although we would have preferred a full-day tour (which is only available on Tuesdays), our guide Magali made this a truly memorable afternoon. She took us to Juneau Beach, showed us the bunkers and explained how that infamous day unfolded. We also saw Canada House before making our way to the cemetery, which was a very sobering experience, to say the least. It was also nice to spend time at the museum and see some of the artifacts and multi-media presentation. A great tour indeed!!
Excellent....we had a most enjoyable bonus when the owner of the house on the beach at Juno beach, down from Courseulles sur mer, better known as Canada House, invited us in and gave us an enlightening "tour" as he explained the house belonged to his grandfather, was taken and used by the Germans, and retaken by Canadians as they hit the beach. Eventually, his family regained the house which is now his home.
