This was a fantastic tour. Our tour guide Ann Sophie, was incredibly knowledgeable about the Canadian landing and various other historic points of interest. My Dad landed on Juno Beach June 6 as a member of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles it was a dream come true for me! Thank-you to Ann Sophie and the Normandy Battlefields tour for making this a day we will never forget. Kitty and Kevin.
We had an excellent experience. Our guide was very knowledgable about the history pertaining to the Canadian troops and their efforts on DDay. We would highly recommend this tour.

Mathieu is a great tour guide. He is knowledgable and passionate about his subject and added to our experience. My daughter had done a history of WWII course at university but learned details she did not know. We visited Juno Beach, the museum, house that stood alone on the beach and he showed us, with fantastic photos and explanations, all about the temporary harbour at Port Winston. He gave credit to the Canadian contribution and helped us to understand what a hard-one success D-Day was. It was very moving to visit Abby Ardene and hear the story of the Canadian prisoners of war who were killed and of the family that lived in the house when the Germans arrived. It was a peaceful setting as was the cemetery where so many very young men were interred. I would definitely recommend this tour.
We had a wonderful tour with Lucille.
She was very knowledgeable about all the areas we visited and also very courteous. One of our friends found her Uncle's grave and was extremely happy. We all felt we had sufficient time to wander in all sites and were impressed with the Museum and grounds. Lest we forget.
Overall as Canadians we feel very glad we had the chance to take this tour. Thank you.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpfull. I wouldly highly recommend Viator based on our experience on our tour of the Canadian D-Day sites
An interesting, in-depth tour of the Canadian sites. Our guide (Lucille, I think) was personable and very knowledgeable. It was great to see the Juno Beach museum which tells the stories of Canadian soldiers. Afterwards we had very pleasant dinner at La Reine Mathilde, a café recommended by our guide. In all, a very pleasant day. I would definitely recommend this tour.
What a wonderful,humbling experience,to see that the French People still are so thankful for their freedom when our own people throw it around so carelessly
This was very enjoyable and informative. WE really liked our guide and the way in which she honoured our questions. THe timing was also excellent.
OUR GUIDE DID A GREAT JOB OF THE TOUR AND SEEMED VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT THE TOPIC AND GEOGRAPHY. SHE ALSO WENT OUT OF HER WAY TO SHOW US SOME EXTRA PLACES OF INTEREST DURING THE TOUR.
Vincent met us at the Train Station in Bayeux at the perscribed time and showed us an amazing afternoon. The area is so rich in history it truly made me proud to be a Canadian. I was honoured to stand in the places so many Canadian heros stood. The Abbey was an amazing place and it was something I knew nothing about.
Vincent was so well versed in the history of the region he made the tour great.
If you have the chance to go, it is a short and direct train ride from Paris. Thanks for a great afternoon.
After phoning the company to tell them we were right across from the Canadian Museum they saved us the taxi trip in toBayeux and picked us up out our hotel. We were the only three people on the tour and our tourguide Rose was absolutely fantastic. She showed us all the sites with a lot of historically correct information and we learned so much from her. Because the trip was slightly altered to our needs it made is so much easier for us. It was an afternoon we will never forget. Thank you
The tour was outstanding. We cannot commend Vincent, our guide, highly enough. He made an impressive tour experience phenomenal. As Canadians, we greatly appreciated the Canadian focus offered by this unique tour. While we would recommend the tour to everyoe, we especially recommend it to Canadians as it gave an emotional history experience unequalled by any other. While we had many great experiences in Europe, the tour of the Juno Beach area was the highlight and we would most like to return there again in the future to explore more. We recommend allowing yourself time in Bayeux for exploring before or after the tour.

LOVED loved loved this tour! It's wonderful and for Canadians ideal! If you go by train from Paris there's a restaurant right across from the train station. Perfect for a quick lunch. The tour was great, saw Juno Beach, the Canadian Museum and a Canadian cementary. Went on June 5th, so everything for D-day was getting ready. Tour guide was for informed. Would definitely recommend.
The Juno Beach and Canadian War sites tour was exceptional. Vincent was our tour guide and we were all very impressed with his knowledge of the tour. He had done his homework. I will strongly recommend your company and Vincent for tours of the Normandy Beach area. Thankyou.
Our tour guide was wonderful, on time, explaining so many things, and was able to even help us when we went to see a family gravesite in Beny sur Mer Cemetary.... Thanks to Rose for everything.
the guide was great! Very compact and efficient use of time.
Not only was it a learning experience, but it was done in such a way that the tour was progressive. The tour guide was knowledgeable and made learning fun.
Tour is a must see when staying in Northern France. Tour guide was extremely passionate and very knowledgeable of the events leading up to and days after the beach landings. I didn't think it was possible to have a greater respect for our War Veterans, but after taking this tour and seeing, hearing what they dealt with on landing day, saying Thank you just doesn't seem like enough.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He really made the day! The tour itself was a moving and eye-opening way to spend an afternoon. Bayeux is also a gorgeous little town and well worth a visit before or after the tour.
Great tour guide and a great tour. Definitely worth seeing and listening to. Knowledgeable tour guide. He knew his stuff and was very good in treating all the questions. He tried really hard and did a great job. Also, bring a jacket. It's cold and windy on the beaches, we froze. Also it runs on time, so be there. Pretty easy to find since it's a small little town.
Was great! Tour guide was informative. too short though, would have loved to take a longer tour!
Had a great tour with Mag. Would highly recommend it.
Thank you Mag
it was great, every person visiting the area should spent the time to do one of these tours. The French people are proud to show us the history that liberated their country.
We really enjoyed this tour and thought that it was worth what we paid for it. The guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. The museum was also very well done. I feel like I know more about our Canadian involvement and am proud of my country and those who fought.
That tour was quite nice. Guide was very informative and nice. Felt a little rushed at the Juno center do to time. Did get a chance to see or read alot of stuff inside. But did enjoy and would recommend.
