2. Small-Group Canadian Normandy D-Day Juno Beach from Paris

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.

Our Tour of Normandy was the best tour I have ever been on in any country. Igor’s knowledge and passion for the Normandy region is infectious. So many extra touches that made every stop include a human connection. The views and stories of those brave men was humbling. The towns people and their appreciation of the of all the servicemen who liberated them from German occupation was touching. Igor was the most charismatic tour guide. He was able to modify the tour for a special stop for one of our guests that served in the 82 Airborne. You will not be disappointed with any if his tours. Thank you Igor.

Perfect tour and perfect host! I’d give 10 stars if I could. Igor was prompt, extremely knowledgeable, and passionate about the subject. We were picked up in a clean vehicle and transported safely. Not a minute was wasted. He was well prepared with videos, visual aids, and plenty of anecdotes. The Normandy D-Day Tour was the highlight of our trip and we will definitely book him for his Normandy Foodie Tour when we return to France.

Our guide was very knowledgeable of Canadian history. He was an excellent guide. It was very moving to see where our Canadian soldiers landed on June 6, 1944 as well as the graves of so many young Canadian soldiers. The Canadian museum is also a must-see. It was fun at the end to visit a cider house and try cider and brandy. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour.

Highly recommend this tour! We had a small group of 7 and visited many important sites for Canadians during the war. Our guide Olivia was knowledgeable and allowed just the right amount of time for us to spend exploring the museums.

A great and moving experience from start to finish. Engaging, well organized tour with plenty of insights, videos, supplemental information to help bring the stories to life.
