Private tour from Sydney Pier

My family and I will be on a cruise which will stop for 1 day in Sydney. I hope someone can suggest a guide/driver who can show the 10 of us some highlights of Cape Breton Island.

Thanks,

Lynn

I am ayay from my notes, but I think there is a driver/guide named Don Boudreau.

Also do some research at boards.cruisecritic.com

Go to the Ports of Call section.

My advice for Sydney is to rent a car and do one of these:

1 Drive part of the Cabot Trail

2 Drive to Fortress Louisbourg

3 Drive to Baddeck (Bell Museum) and then to Iona (Highland Village Museum) and then back to Sydney via Christmas Island.

Might have a bit of a squeeze getting 10 people into a rental car! Suggest you contact the local tourist authority and ask who offers tours in vehicles that big. Or, if you split the group up, you can hire bespoke cab tours at the door of the cruise terminal building.

Note: Don't miss the Miners' Museum; its wonderful.

There are almost no tour operators operating from Sydney. Cruise Critic is the place to look.
