Whether you have a family connection to World War I or II or are simply a history buff, the annual Great Canadian War Memorial Tour may be the perfect choice for a meaningful and memorable vacation this year.
Offered by Globus, the tour (with five departures between May and October) pays tribute to all who served Canada during the two great wars, taking in museums, memorials and sites of significant interest in France and Belgium.
The tour begins and ends with overnight stays in Paris, and in the interim visits the Normandy Landing Beaches, the Canadian War Cemetery and Juno Beach Memorial. Other sites visited during the tour include the Beaumont-Hamel Newfoundland Memorial, Vimy Ridge, Ypres and the Flanders Fields Museum.
Stéphanie Bishop, managing director of Globus in Canada, said: “This tour is hugely popular with those who wish to pay their respects to the thousands of Canadians who sacrificed so much during the World Wars.”
Bishop continued: “Our tour planners have gone to great lengths to ensure that each stop and inclusion is selected for its significance.” Seeing the sites with a group of fellow Canadians makes it even more meaningful.”
With the current early booking bonus in place, the 10-day tour is priced from $3,504 Cdn (plus airfare) – which includes transportation by WiFi-equipped motorcoach, services of a Tour Director, accommodation, daily breakfasts, four dinners and admission to all sites.
If you book your client on this tour before Jan. 28 this year you’ll save them 7.5% off the tour price; book by April 28 and save 5%.
After the early booking bonuses expire, the lead price is $3,789.
An optional excursion to London via the Eurostar Chunnel train is also available.
