Begin your tour with a brief introduction to Sydney. Hear about the city's founders and the industries that developed in this area as you drive through the historic North End.

Follow the Trans-Canada Highway to the picturesque resort village of Baddeck -- a panoramic drive with views of Boulanderie Island, the Seal Island Bridge, and the Great Bras d'Or Channel as well as Kelly's Mountain and St Ann's Bay.

Visit the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site, situated on the shores of the beautiful Bras d'Or Lakes in the heart of Cape Breton Island. Alexander Graham Bell spent most of the last 32 years of his life on this inlet of the lovely Bras d'Or.

At the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, you'll discover and learn about the many outstanding accomplishments of the man best known for the invention of the telephone. Bell made remarkable contributions in the fields of medicine, genetics, electricity, sound and speech, as well as aeronautics and marine engineering. The museum houses an extensive collection of artifacts contributed by the Bell family.
