We had the opportunity to tour with Bluenose back in July when we visited Halifax and Vicky and Kevin were the ultimate hosts. The weather was overcast and drizzly, but we were snug in our sidecars and were able to enjoy the trip. Lots of beautiful scenery and great stops at fun places like the hammock place and the Peggy's... More

What an amazing day we had cruising around the Halifax area with Bluenose Sidecar tours. Four college friends from 4 different states get together once a year . This year we enjoyed a 7 day New England cruise on Royal Caribbean. The shore excursions offered through the ship didn't capture our interest so we each researched options in different ports....

From the very moment Vicki picked us up from the dock, (and guaranteed to return us before the ship sailed!) we noticed her very friendly personality and by the end of the day we were all having cuddles. The tour itself was certainly an adventure and the knowledge that Vicki had of the history of this area added to the... More

We were looking forward to the experience of riding in a sidecar but this was so much more. The owners are the drives and tour guides and they are just downright great people. What I especially liked about this tour was their intimate knowledge of the people and history of the area. There were several stops and at each stop... More

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
