Welcome to charming Sydney, founded in 1785 by the British and incorporated as a city in 1904. Today you will see all the city’s highlights and visit the business district with its tree-lined streets as your guide relates tales of the coal miners and steel workers who have helped shape this historic city since its beginning.
Travel through Membertou, an urban and progressive Mi’kmaq community. Visit the Whitney Pier Museum, dedicated to the many nationalities that founded the region and still have roots that grow deeply in the city. Sample a homemade oatcake, baked from a centuries-old recipe, and enjoy the local warmth and charm of Sydney's people.
A drive through the city takes you past historic St Patrick's Church, built in 1828 in pioneer gothic style, Jost House, one of the oldest surviving buildings in Sydney, and Cossit House, one of the oldest buildings on Cape Breton Island! Before returning to the Port, an optional stop will be made on Charlotte Street for those guests who prefer to remain in town and browse the local shops independently.
