Customer Reviews for A Walk through Old Sydney Town

A Walk through Old Sydney Town

Join your 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, where a light refreshment of tea and traditional Scottish oatcakes will be served. Notes:Wear comfortable walking shoes. Guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore on their own are welcome to do so, but must return to the ship on their own.

Our guide was young but very good and told great stories. We saw many historical buildings and went inside 3 or 4. The interpreters in the particular buildings were fabulous - what character and detail. The buildings had either original furnishings or authentic from the period. At the end, we went to the Lycem for home-made tea and cookies from local volunteers. It was a very enjoyable morning.

The tour guide was good or otherwise this would have been boring. We walked through a few square blocks of the town and saw the historic homes and building as we were told about the history of the town and the specific property. Later we had tea and oatmeal cakes. Nothing exciting.

This tour is a very pleasant walk with a guide dressed in 18th century costume. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. It was a bit cold but the tour ended with hot tea and homemade cookies which was a welcome treat!
