Our guide was great. Merci Matthieu. Being a local who grew up in the area, he was truly an expert. Would like tour to be a little longer and afford chances for more photos along the way as well as a coffee break!
Francois is an excellent guide and went out of his way to ensure that we all got the most out of our tour. He is a passionate historian and enlivened our experience.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. She made the trip most useful.
We took the train from Paris for the day and found this whole trip worthwhile. Sunny our leader was very knowledgeable about the history of the Canadian forces at d-day and helped us feel a real sense of pride of our Canadian soldiers on the day. It was really special spending the day with other Canadians who felt the same way. Would highly recommend this to anybody considering this tour.
We booked this tour online and took the train from Paris to Bayeux. The tour guide picked us up at the train station at 1:00 pm as arranged. There were six people in the van and our guide Gwyn explained what we were going to see and provided us with historical information from the time we left Bayeux until the time we arrived at Juno Beach. At each stop he utilized visual aids in the form of pictures and maps to enhance his presentation which was extremely helpful and interesting. Gwyn's passion for the events of D-Day were evident and his knowledge was impressive. The whole tour took approximately 5 hours and throughout he was outstanding. We were dropped at the train station in time to catch the 6:35 pm train back to Paris. We would highly recommend this tour.
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.
