Join a costumed guide on this relaxed walking tour through Old Sydney -- the part of the city that was settled by loyalists fleeing the American Revolution of 1785.

You'll visit four museums -- St Patrick's, the oldest Roman Catholic Church at Cape Breton; Cossit House, built in 1787; Jost House, offering interesting exhibits from several historical periods; and the Cape Breton Centre for Heritage & Science.

A light refreshment of tea and traditional Scottish oatcakes will be served.


Wear comfortable walking shoes. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must return to the ship on their own.
