We recently returned from our extensive Eastern Canada road trip and unfortunately our only regret was booking with Bluenose Sidecar Tours. Their rank and reviews on Tripadvisor don't get any better so I truly expected an experience that would have been worthy of the high cost we paid for this adventure. I can only reason that because our planned tour... More

As we've told you by email we are also disappointed that you were left unhappy with the service we provided. Once again, I will point out that you initially asked for a two hour tour to take in the Peggys Cove area, which we did explain was totally unrealistic. It was at this point we offered you a longer custom... More

We booked this for the sidecar experience, and it turned out to be so much more. We selected the Peggy's Cove tour, and Vicki and Kevin did a great job as our drivers and guides. In addition to the fun of riding in the sidecars, we learned a lot about the history, geography, and culture of the area. Since we... More

Vicki was warm, caring and most helpful to my 80 year old mom, as we enjoyed an informative tour of the Halifax area, in an experience my mom will remember for a very long time! Mom was a little reluctant at first, and concerned about getting in and out of the sidecar, but Vicki provided tips and help to make... More

Thank you Kevin and Vicki for making our 5th Anniversary extra special! While not a motorcycle fan, Melanie has always talked about riding in a sidecar and letting the wind blow through her hair, check that one off the bucket list. We had a ball. We got to experience the Bedford to Peggy's Cove loop in a unique way, with... More

Vicki and Kevin were wonderful guides, good insight on the city history and emphasized safety. We took a grandma, aunt and niece and a friend on the trip - sidecars are great for first time riders and for fun. One rider was an above knee amputee and rode behind Kevin so the bikes leave lots of options open for those... More

I wanted to do something different for my Mom's birthday, so I chose this. It was so much fun. But even more important, Vicki and Kevin are very knowledgeable about the history and the present of Halifax and their commentary made everything come to life. My mother is elderly and she found the sidecar very comfortable and easy to get... More

We had a great afternoon with Vicki and Kevin. This is definitely a unique way to see Peggy's Cove. You get some looks on the street, a few waves and a couple of conversations along the way because you are riding in a side car. The Bluetooth communication between both rigs allowed Vicki and Kevin share a wealth of knowledge... More

My wife and two children (ages 13 and 8) experienced a Halifax tour with Vicki and Kevin. At all times I felt very comfortable (note - our children rode in the side car - my wife and I each sat behind Vicki and Kevin respectively). This is a great way to comfortably experience Halifax and I would suggest you do... More

We just returned from our Trip to Halifax and we had the most fun ever on the Bluenose Sidecar Tour. We can't say enough about the owners Kevin and Vicki. They sure do know the history and facts of Nova Scotia. They made the tour personal by also sharing fun facts and stories. The sidecars are very comfortable, easy enough... More

My husband and I just got back from a tour of Halifax with Vicki and Kevin. What a fantastic way to see the city! Vicki and Kevin are a fun loving, accomodating couple with an extensive history and knowledge of the area. We had never been in motocycles before and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Much more fun and personal than regular... More
