Full day Private Tour - Juno beach and the key sites of D-Day.
A tour along the Normandy coast visiting the landing zones of the Canadian Parachute Regiment, the towns along Juno beach, and the key sites of D-Day. We will also visit the Juno Beach Centre and the Canadian Military Cemetery at Bény-sur-Mer to see the final resting place of the young men who made the ultimate sacrifice. Depending upon the time available we can also visit other sites you want to see, which can include Sword Beach, Gold Beach, Arromanches (and the 360 D-Day cinema), and the Commonwealth War Cemetery in Bayeux. If you wish I can customise the tour to visit the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer. Other custom tours can be arranged - please ask.
The tour price quoted is for a group of up to 6, however, a larger group tour can be accommodated by arrangement.
Please note that this tour can be customized for you if you have special requests or if you are a large group requiring a bigger vehicle.

Estimated Local Cash Needed
50 Euros - Typical costs for a lunchtime meal in a restaurant is 20€ - 25€ per person, a light snack would be 10€ - 15€. Allow 5€ per head for a coffee and cake. 10€ for total entrance fees to museums.
All entry fees, meals and drinks are not included in the tour price.
Not licensed to give tours inside French Government owned sites and museums (e.g. The Louvre). In practice there are very few of these sites in Normandy, and none on the D-Day Beaches.

All 4 of us really enjoyed our excursion to the Canadian D-Day beaches , cemetery and Juno beach information centre and museum. Andy was a particularly good guide, very prompt, had an excellent knowledge of the Canadian envolvement in the war; and knew the area like the back of his hand. I would highly recommend Andy for any tour of Normandy.
