A HALF DAY TOUR RETRACING CANADIAN ARMED FORCES INVOLVEMENT ON D-DAY
On the morning of June 6, 1944, Canadian Armed Forces landed on what is now called Juno Beach. Although they lost almost half of their men during the first hour of battle, Canadian troops did not give up and had made the furthest advance by the evening of the same day.

 JUNO BEACH SECTOR INCLUDING THE MUSEUM DEDICATED TO CANADIAN WWII HISTORY
Today, Juno Beach has become one of the most popular Normandy tourist sites and boasts a beautiful museum dedicated to Canadian involvement in the D-Day landing and World War II. To honor the Canadian army, it was built in the shape of a modern maple leaf. The visit to the museum is included in this D-Day tour.

 VISIT OF THE MAJOR CANADIAN WAR CEMETERY LOCATED AT BÉNY-SUR-MER
Our Canadian D-Day Normandy tour carries on in Beny-sur-Mer, where the Canadian military cemetery is located. Most of the soldiers buried there were killed during the D-Day landing battles, as well as during the liberation of Caen in July 1944. The place is now taken care of by the Commonwealth War Graves Commissions and is kept beautifully landscaped and immaculate.

HEAR ABOUT THE TRAGIC MASSACRE THAT TOOK PLACE AT ARDENNE ABBEY
Eventually, you will be able to hear the story of the Ardenne Abbey, where eighteen Canadian soldiers were executed without mercy. The church is built in the early Gothic style and is surrounded by medieval farm buildings encircled by walls. A small Canadian memorial is still located there.

At the end of this Normandy D-Day tour, your chauffeur will take you back to your original meeting point in Bayeux.
