D-Day Tour 2019
Terri McDade recently met up with Barb Canton at an event commemorating Hill 70. She is a retired elementary school teacher from Kingston and is organizing a D-Day Tour. The following is relevant information for anyone who may be interested in a D-Day tour next June.
Her home number is 613-353-2812 if any one has any questions, or they can email her at email@example.com.
The information is also available on the web if you follow: grouptoursite.ca/rto.
On the website it shows the itinerary and the “base price” before flights. You can choose to leave from Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Vancouver etc. and it will give a price based on that gateway. She has arranged for a flight from Kingston via Toronto as well (and it is only $135 more than flying from TO!)
So, pricing is as follows:
With flight from Kingston $6884 (but you need to call in to Go Ahead tours to ask for the Kingston gateway flight)
With flight from Toronto $6749
With flight from Montreal $6829
With flight from Ottawa $6854
They also have a few optional excursions that cost extra and they are listed both on the brochure and on the web.
