Full description
After meeting your guide conveniently at the Place de Québec, you’ll set off towards Juno Beach, where Canadian Armed Forces landed on the morning of June 6, 1944. Met with devastating losses as a result of landmines and other obstacles, nearly half of the soldiers died on Juno Beach, before pushing 16 kilometers inland. As you walk across the hallowed ground, your guide will describe how the Allied forces managed to keep gaining ground against seemingly insurmountable resistance.

Your next stop is the Juno Beach Center, the only Canadian museum on the D-Day beaches. There, you will be able to chart the story of Canadians through photos, archives, and artifacts, amidst remains of German bunkers. The various exhibitions in the museum go further than just Normandy, charting Canada’s general involvement in World War II.

Next stop is the Abbey d’Ardenne, where Canadian troops were held prisoner by the Germans and executed within the church’s walls. Afterwards, head to Hill 67, which serves as a Canadian memorial to the troops who fought during the battle of Normandy. At the end of the Normandy D-Day tour, you driver will take you conveniently back to the original meeting point in Bayeux. With options for both half- and full-day tours, tailor your experience to your meet interest and schedule.
