We took the train from Paris for the day and found this whole trip worthwhile. Sunny our leader was very knowledgeable about the history of the Canadian forces at d-day and helped us feel a real sense of pride of our Canadian soldiers on the day. It was really special spending the day with other Canadians who felt the same way. Would highly recommend this to anybody considering this tour.

We booked this tour online and took the train from Paris to Bayeux. The tour guide picked us up at the train station at 1:00 pm as arranged. There were six people in the van and our guide Gwyn explained what we were going to see and provided us with historical information from the time we left Bayeux until the time we arrived at Juno Beach. At each stop he utilized visual aids in the form of pictures and maps to enhance his presentation which was extremely helpful and interesting. Gwyn's passion for the events of D-Day were evident and his knowledge was impressive. The whole tour took approximately 5 hours and throughout he was outstanding. We were dropped at the train station in time to catch the 6:35 pm train back to Paris. We would highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful tour with Francois as our guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the D-Day landings and was able to provide detailed information and bring to life the Canadian landings and the various locations associated with the Canadians. Very humbling and moving experience and we would highly recommend this tour. A definite highlight of our time in France this summer. Small group was a bonus - only 6 of us on this tour. Excellent experience - thank you Francois!

This was a great tour. We enjoyed the main focus being on the Canadian soldiers and what they had to go through. Our tour guide Mag was very informative. The town of Bayeux is beautiful.
