D-Day 75th Anniversary Tour

Jun 4th - Jun 13th, 2019

Operated by The Battlefield Tours

Tour Description

Join this vacation of a lifetime operated by The Battlefield Tours to France and Belgium to visit sites from both World War I & II.

During this trip, you will be accompanied by a Full Time Battlefield Tour Manager on site who will explain the significance and history of all sites visited during the tour. This tour is marking the 75th anniversary of D-Day in France and will allow you the opportunity to participate in the official ceremony organized by Veterans Affairs Canada.

We start the tour in Paris where you will enjoy a cruise along the Seine, an orientation tour, and dinner at Jardin du Notre Dame. We then continue to visit sites in Normandy & Dieppe, France such as the Pegasus Bridge, Bloody Omaha, Juno Beach, Beaumont-Hamel, and of course, Vimy Ridge. In Belgium, we will be staying in Ieper and tour the area of the Battle of Passchendaele. The tour finishes with the group's participation in the Menin Gate Last Post Ceremony. This is often the most memorable part of the tour before flying home from Brussels.

Join this tour from select Maritime airports (Charlottetown, Moncton, Fredericton, and Halifax) and travel to Paris and return from Brussels.
