Tastings and Colors of Cape Breton with a private guide


Leaving the Sydney area we will travel to the interior of Cape Breton to Glenville, Nova Scotia.
Part of our journey westbound will be along the south route of the Cabot Trail.
The first stop will be a visit to the Glenora Distillery which has been recognized as the first single malt whisky distillery in North America. The whisky they have been producing since 1990 is compared to the greatest single malts produced in Scotland. The distillery tour takes about 30 minutes with a tasting for those of legal drinking age.
We will then travel through the village of Mabou then turn east towards the village of Baddeck.
Depending on the choice of the tour participants, we will then visit one of two Craft Breweries.
You will also enjoy the views of the Bras D'or lakes, St, Ann's look off and the Seal Island Bridge look off.
This tour will include snacks and a light lunch provided by your guide.

Is your group larger than 4 persons, ask me for a customized group tour.
