Add To Plan

Discover inventor Alexander Graham Bell's many remarkable contributions to the world in his namesake museum in Baddeck, a lovely village that you will also visit.

Starting off from the pier, you will head for Baddeck, which lies due west of Sydney. Because of Cape Breton Island's many rivers and waterways, you will be treated to a lovely circuitous route to Baddeck, passing over Seal Island Bridge and stopping to take photos at Kelly's Mountain (weather permitting). Arriving at the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, you will be struck by its unusual design, which is based on the tetrahedron form that the inventor used in his flight test kites. Although Bell is renowned for inventing the telephone, that groundbreaking accomplishment only touches upon his scientific achievements. The Scotsman Bell earned 18 patents alone and collaborated on another 12 in areas such as medicine, genetics, electricity, sound, speech, aeronautics and marine engineering. Following a brief orientation, you will have 1-hour to explore the museum at your leisure, viewing numerous original artifacts, photographs and exhibits.

After touring the museum, you will re-board your coach and drive into Baddeck where you will have some free time to discover the heart of this charming town. The village perches on the shores of Bras d'Or Lake and is wonderfully scenic, adding to its reputation as a fine resort town. During your visit, you might walk along the waterfront or stop in one of the quaint restaurants for lunch. Seafood, especially fresh Atlantic lobster, is a favorite. Afterwards, you will transfer back to the pier in Sydney.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 1-hour of moderate guided walking/standing, plus any additional walking at the guests' discretion during free time. There are various gradients and surfaces to negotiate. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Rain resistant layered clothing; sun cap; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
