Full description
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.

During this insightful tour, you will take a guided journey through many of the historical landmarks that are pivotal to this moment in history. Take a walk on Juno Beach, just like the Canadian troops did in 1944, you can walk on the same sand they did on that very day. Whilst at Juno Beach, your guide will take you to see Juno Beach Center, the most comprehensive museum about the Canadian landings in Normandy. You will also get to visit the Canadian Cemetery in Beny-sur-Mer. Whilst here, you can stroll through the beautiful cemetery whilst paying your respects to the fallen Canadian soldiers. Your guide will take you to see 'Hell's Corner', the furthest advance inland taken by Canadian troops on D-Day, 5-miles from the city of Caen. Before you finish your tour of the day, you will also see the Atlantic Wall Museum: the command center for the German defenses and discover all kinds of objects, tanks, and landing craft used during the battle.

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.
