If you are in Atlantic Canada or planning to be, find your way to Bluenose Sidecar Tours in Halifax for a unique treat. Vicki, an experienced motorcycle rider, picked me up in her Ural sidecar rig. I felt like I was in a scene of a movie from a bygone era as we toured coastal roads in Prospect Village and Terence Bay. Vicki's knowledge of the history of the SS Atlantic shipwreck added much to my own, as we explored the Heritage Park and site of the shipwreck in Terence Bay. The open-air breezes and unobstructed views of ocean landscapes enhanced the tour experience. The sidecar was incredibly comfortable, with ample room for my legs, and the windshield deflected the wind at road speeds. After Vicki's instructions for entry and exit and a few stops along the way, I felt like a master sidecar passenger. Don't miss it.

When Vicki and Kevin first showed me their business plan, I thought- neat, something different. Now that I have been on a tour, I have to say- very cool! I went on a tour around downtown Halifax with Vicki and it was a lot of fun. Driving in the sidecar was a unique experience and we attracted lots of smiles and waves. The sidecar is definitely an eye catcher. The sidecar was very comfortable and Vicki supplied the helmet which is equipped with a two way communication device. If anyone is looking for something out of the ordinary to do- this is the tour for you. These tours will appeal to both tourist and locals alike. Good luck to the both of you and I am sure this business will be a success.

Seeing "Nova Scotia Sideways" with Bluenose Sidecar Tours was a truly unique and amazing experience. I live in NS and ride, not drive, a motorcycle. This type of excursion, in my case along part of the south shore, really was seeing it again for the first time. A novel way to enjoy the scenery and fresh air.
Vicki, the motorcycle/sidecar operator and tour guide was most impressive not just in her knowledge of the area but also in her vehicle skills and safe handling. A very nice lady AND she also knew the perfect pie stop.
Would I do another sidecar tour? In a heartbeat. The hard part would be deciding which way to go since Bluenose does have choices.
I would recommend Bluenose Sidecar Tours to anyone who is looking for a totally enjoyable and sociable adventure.
