Has anyone done a private day tour from Sydney NS around Cape Breton Island? The Princess Royal excursion is booked that we are on. My friends are very scared to take a private tour.
We went all around Cape Breton privately(we were going all over, not on a cruise!) and I can tell you that it is a very long drive with much construction going on, especially on the western side, in 2017. I wanted to go all around the whole area but realized afterwards that halfway would have been enough, just to the Northwest side of Cape Breton. This info is for anyone booking a private tour or going by personal car, as we did.Agree that Cape Breton is a really long drive. The Princess excursion sounds as though you'll see a lot but in reality there's not enough time to get any real distance. It was quite disappointing really. You'd have a better chance of seeing more in a private car.
