Sydney, Canada


Recommended Posts

While Sydney itself really doesn't have much it's by far the most convenient port to visit two of the best attractions in the province - Louisbourg Fortress and the Cape Breton Miners Museum. A cab would be hella pricey, with distances of 20-30miles per leg, though possibly still better value than a cruise tour bus excursion unless you're a solo(!);  a rental car is by far the most efficient way to visit them but you may struggle to find one at a decent price if your trip is this fall...

We just returned from Sydney last week, and took a Cabot Discovery Tour. They were easy to book and have different tours to choose from, depending on how long you are in port. Our guide was knowledgeable and very accommodating. We took the Great Scots Tour, which included time on the Cabot Trail. The view were amazing! https://www.cabotdiscoverytours.com

How feasible would it be to visit the Highland Village Living Museum in Iona when in Sydney?

Possibly a rental car?

 Totally possible but you'd definitely have to rent a car.  It's about an hour away from the port.
