What to Expect
On June 6th, 1944 the largest seaborne invasion ever attempted in history took place. The Allied troops waged an extremely difficult attack on the German forces who were entrenched in bunkers along the coast of Normandy. More than 14,000 Canadian soldiers landed or parachuted into France on that day. Though the soldiers knew that they were fighting against the odds they carried on with courage and helped to win the battle for Normandy.  

Whether you’re a great admirer of military history or someone who is just curious about how the events really played out on D-Day, this tour will help you to better appreciate the remarkable acts of courage and bravery that took place on Juno Beach. For they are well worth learning about and being remembered by all free folk today.

Highlights :
• Juno Beach : Walk on the sands of Juno Beach in Normandy just like the Canadian troops did in June 1944.
• Juno Beach Center : Visit the Juno Beach Center, the most comprehensive museum about the Canadian landings in Normandy.
• Visit 2 bunkers on Juno Beach : Join an official Juno Beach Center guide and enter 2 (closed off to the public) German bunkers on Juno Beach.
• Canada House : See the famous “Canada House” on Juno Beach, said to be the first house liberated in Normandy.
• Canadian Cemetery in Beny-sur-Mer : Pay your respects to the fallen Canadian soldiers at the Canadian Cemetery.
• Lunch in Courseulles-sur-Mer : Enjoy 1hr of free time in Courseulles-sur-Mer for lunch (lunch not included in tour price)
• Hell’s Corner : The furthest advance inland taken by Canadian troops on D-Day, 5 miles from the city of Caen.
• Abbey d’Ardenne : On June 1944, 20 Canadian soldiers were illegally executed at the abbey by members of the “Hitler Youth”.
• Atlantic Wall Museum: Visit the command center for the German defenses and discover all kinds of objects/tanks/landing craft used during the Normandy Campaign.
• Hard Apple Cider and Calvados tastings : Your visit of Normandy wouldn’t be complete without a visit to a local farm where you will be able to taste some of the famous local apple cider.

This tour was well organized and well paced. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It was nice to have a Canadian focus for the tour and it was a very efficient way to see so many sites while only taking a day from Paris.

All Americans in particular should visit Normandy. We visited Normandy the day before D Day. The grounds were pristine. As stated above the tour guide was extremely informed and hospitable. Couldn't have been a better visit.
