    What to Expect
    After departing from your centrally located Bayeux hotel or a prearranged meeting point, begin your half-day tour of Normandy's Canadian World War II sites. Get acquainted with your knowledgeable guide and enjoy the scenery of the 30-minute drive to the Juno Beach Centre, a unique museum dedicated to the Canadian soldier’s involved in World War II. 
    Learn about the pivotal role played by Canada in the war and see moving commemorations to the sacrifices made by courageous soldiers. See the German bunkers and beach obstacles that surround the museum and get up close to historical monuments that speak eloquently of the area’s fascinating history. 
    Stop next at Bény-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery to feel emotionally stirred my mire than 2,000 headstones dedicated to British, French and Canadian soldiers killed during the D-Day attacks. Admire spectacular views of the rugged Atlantic coast and then continue to Ardenne Abbey to marvel at a masterpiece of Norman architecture. Follow your guide on a guided tour of the 12th-century structure and hear of its turbulent history before returning to the vehicle and relaxing during the scenic journey back to Bayeux.

    I did the half-day tour today with Kate. Great trip overall. Very informative and caring guide. Also we are in small groups of 6-8 so it is like having a personal guide which is usually way more expensive. We saw Juno Beach and the main...More

    We took this tour because my husband is from Canada and had two uncles die during WWII. The sights and history of Canada’s heroic efforts was inspiring. We were proud to see Canada’s often overlooked sacrifices and the bravery of their soldiers honored so well.

    Bob&Lynn, we are looking for the same but we will be docking on May 12 on Crown Princess. I find it disheartening that Princess is only offering excursion to the American site and that’s $220USpp.
