The best way to tour somewhere new. My husband and I spent the day with BluenoseSidecar Tours while in Halifax. Vicki and Kevin were amazing "hosts" and it was wonderful to be able to communicate via the headsets in our helmets. At no time did we ever feel unsafe (and I can be nervous at times). They were extremely accommodating... More

We just got back from a week long cruise to Canada and New England. This tour was the highlight of our entire trip. Kevin and Vickie are both wonderful people. As you ride along they narrate and give you a history of Halifax. Stopped so that we could take some wonderful pictures. It was absolutely the funnest tour I have... More

The shore excursions offered many group outings, but nothing that compared to tepee freedom allowed with Bluenose sidecar tours. Making and confirming arrangements was easy, and with Vicki meeting us as we got off the ship, the experience was very pleasant. The ride itself was very nice, and the. Miking system set up so everyone could speak and listen, was... More

My sister and I recently took a New England/Canada cruise. When we looked over the shore excursions, they were big group touring and not very interesting. Then we found Bluenose Sidecar Tours on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. What a great decision! We had so much fun touring Halifax with Kevin and Vicki. I was a little... More

My wife and I celebrated our 40th anniversary visiting Peggy's Cove with Kevin on his trusty Ural Side Car motorcycle. The helmet headsets worked well and we learned a lot on the trip. In addition to having great fun and a unique view of the shore and countryside, we turned a lot of heads, especially at Peggy's Cove itself, where... More

We walked off the ship and Vicki was there waiting for us. Just a few steps and we were at the bikes and Kevin briefed us on a few things and we were off. We went to Peggy's Cove. Both Vicki and Kevin had so many interesting facts and stories. Made a few stops along the way and we both... More

What an excursion!!!! Vicki and Kevin picked us up at our hotel and took us on the best trip we've had in Nova Scotia. Our trip took us on a route to Peggy's Cove and surrounding area. We also had the opportunity to visit Ivan Fraser and his childhood house. There we spent time listening to wonderful stories about the... More

Vicki and Kevin did a flawless job. And I am a harsh critic. I am a committed motorcyclist, the first thing I did after returning from this trip was ride my own motorcycles. Vicki and Kevin had great motorcycle skills, beautifully maintained rides, and an eye for safe practices. They have the people skills to match. I went with 3... More

Just do it. This is a bucket list kind of thing. Kevin and Vicki are the best team and this was a highlight of our whole Nova Scotia trip. They are true Maritimers/Bluenosers and make you love their city. So much info and all in the comfort of their sidecar. Just do it!

Vicki and Kevin are AWESOME! Had a GREAT RIDE....We can't stop talking about it. If you are in Halifax, NS and want to do something fun and exciting (also interesting) you should look this company up. Do it way before you go, as they are a small family run company, so they fill up fast. They treat you like family... More
