This tour was the highlight of our cruise. We were picked up at the dock. The tour was tailored to our interests. Being from hockey star Sid Crosbys hockey season home, the sports hall of fame in Halifax was a must stop for us. We were accommodated, even though it was not an easy place to find a place to...

This was a great tour! Vicky new going into the tour that I was a photographer, so she pin pointed various locations which were perfect for photographing. I would recommend this to anyone who is not familiar to the beautiful scenery in Nova Scotia and its history!

The Peggy's cove tour in a sidecar was a fun way to see a beautiful area. As seniors off a cruise ship we had no problem getting in and out of the comfortable sidecars. The helmets had microphones so we could all talk and hear each other. Vicki's informative tour was tailored to our interests. A fun day. Do it!

I would highly recommend booking a tour with Vicki and Kevin. My sister and I took their Peggy Cove tour last week and it was a great experience in every way. At the start of the tour Vicki asked about where we were from and what our interests were (e.g., did we want a tour that focused on history, art,... More

Four of us took the Halifax City Tour and loved every minute of it. This is definitely a fun and unique way to see the city. Kevin and Vicki provided lots of information and history about Halifax. We did have to rush a bit as it took us longer to get started on our tour because our cruise ship was... More

Our Eastern Canada vacation this summer had many highlights but Bluenose tours was not one of them. We booked this tour anticipating a memorable experience but the only thing we tell our friends and family about Bluenose tours since we've been back is we wished we had invested our time and money on something else. Sightseeing in Nova Scotia seems... More

We're disappointed you did not enjoy your time with us and certainly wish you had made your views known on the day of your tour. We do our best to provide our guests with an excellent experience while they are visiting our little corner of the world and we love to show it off. I'm afraid there is nothing we... More

My husband and I came to Nova Scotia in search of my family's roots. I e-mailed Vicki asking specifically to go to one cove in particular and also gave her some surnames I had found in my ancestry search. She looked everything up and took us to a lot of sights that I would not have found myself. The cove... More

We had always wanted to see the Bay of Fundy, but had a very short time in Halifax. Vicki and Kevin were able to tailor the trip for us in terms of time and destination. Great scenery, informative commentary about that area of Canada via Bluetooth while on the road. A fabulous lunch at a small cafe only the locals... More

We were cruising with Seabourn and decided to book this private tour in lieu of one of the ships tours. I'm glad we did as this was a fun way to check out the sites. The sidecar seats are surprisingly comfortable! I wanted to check out a local gallery and they took us to the perfect place and helped us... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our adventure with Vicki and Kevin! What a fun, unique way to explore an iconic Canadian landmark. We were specifically asked about special stops we wanted to make on the tour in advance of our departure date so had lots of opportunity to research places along the route. We really didn't have specific suggestions for them other than... More
