What to expect

You will be picked up at the train station or at your hotel and be driven in a comfortable vehicle for a visit to the Vimy Canadian Memorial. It's about 20 minutes to get to the Vimy site.

Remember that this is more of a transportation service than a tourist guide service. However, Michel and Rahma are native to the region and know perfectly the sites on which they take you.

You will visit the Canada National Vimy Memorial, which is the largest of Canada’s war memorial. It is dedicated to the memory of the 66,000 Canadians who died during the First World War. Canadian sculptor and architect Walter Seymour Allward captured the emotion of a nation faced with the sacrifice of its fellow citizens, as well as Canada’s deeply held values of peace and freedom. It offers an impressive view overlooking the plain of Artois. You could also visit the Visitor Education Centre and the Grange Subway tunnel. There are English and French speaking guides in the Visitor Education Centre and tours of the Grange tunnel. The rest of your visit to the site is self-guided.
