About the tour

This time it is our Canadian brothers that we will honor. We will go to Juno Beach, a beach that stretches over 8 km between Courseulles-sur-Mer and Saint-Aubin-sur-Mer. We will go straight to the middle, to Bernières-sur-Mer which was defended by a large anti-tank wall. The 15,000 Canadians who were to make the assault threw themselves into the battle with the idea in mind of avenging their 3,375 comrades who had fallen at Dieppe two years earlier. For this visit, I will not, a priori, go to Courseulles where there is military equipment which one can see in the other visits, but rather to go in the detail of the history, with the beach and the memorial, but also the house of the Canadians where we will be accommodated like privileged guest, and we will go to the Canadian military cemetery of Bény-sur-Mer. ATTENTION: To do this tour, I would have to take my car between the sites, so it might disturb the network, so please be understanding, as I try to get as close as possible to the history for you, but sometimes the phone operators don't have the same concern.

Meet Patrick Herpe

Patrick Herpe

Patrick isn't one to shy away from travel and adventure. "I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures, and meet incredible people!" he says, after having explored multiple cities across Europe and Asia. On his tours, you may catch more than a surprise or two about Paris. "In fact, it is an everyday experience. I'm a native Parisian, but every day, I continue to discover new things, new secrets about Paris. It's a never-ending story," he laughs. It was his love for Paris that led him to become a guide. "I'm a father and a teacher, and I realized that my passion was to share my knowledge, so I decided to be a guide about one of my passion: Paris!" Patrick chips in. "I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have for my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!" "At the end of my tour I always give a virtual bise - two in fact being a good Parisian!" he laughs.

I learned so much about Canada's part in WW2 . The cemetery is beautiful and so well maintained! I would have liked to see more of the Canada house, so much history there. Fascinating tour.

Thanks very much for the excellent tour! History came alive for me - and I don't usually follow war stories. My eyes didn't glaze over this time because they were full of tears.

Thank you for the wonderful tour of Juno Beach and the Canadian Cemetery. My husband, daughter and myself were there in September 2018. I am so impressed with how well the cemetery is looked after. A beautiful tribute to our fallen soldiers. Your tour was very informative and the respect you show is really appreciated. I look forward to taking more of your tours.
