Bluenose Sidecar Tours officially came into being in April of 2011 and it's been a heck of a ride! After five years of showing off our beautiful province and city to some amazing folks from all over the world it is time to turn our sights to the future. After much soul-searching we have decided to cease operating our tours.... More

Found on this site and was attracted immediately as we would only have one day in Halifax and there were going to be 4 cruise ships at dock! Drivers met us as soon as we got off the port shuttle, briefed us and got us comfy in the Ural sidecars. Took a leisurely tour out to Peggy's Cove; stopping for... More

We choose to tour the Halifax area with Bluenose and it was a great choice. The kids rode in the side cars which was EXTREMELY unfortunate for the the adults!! The ship was late getting into dock and the cruiseline had terrible crowd management so we lost time that could have been spent for this activity. Vicki and Kevin lost... More

We recently toured with Vickie and Kevin and this was a great experience. They were knowledgeable, friendly and customized the tour according to our request. When asked how much time we could spend at one particular location, they stated, "As long as you like, just remember it's 1 hour back to the ship." Fun and comfortable tour. Equipment is excellent.... More

My husband and I had a fabulous time touring with Vicki & Kevin. We were greeted at our hotel promptly and given our helmets complete with mics. What a fun way to see the city! I search for unique things to do- we'd certainly never ridden in motorcycle sidecars! The tour lasted over 2 1/2 hours maybe 3! Both were... More

This was the highlight of our first trip to Nova Scotia! Can't think of a better way to see Halifax. Our tour guide & driver Vicki was delightfully informative & brought the city's history to life for us. We especially appreciated their flexibility when the weather caused us to reschedule. Would do this again in a heartbeat!

I'm serious. Touring with Vickie and Kevin in their sidecars is an experience of a lifetime. They are gracious, thoughtful hosts who provide a safe and thrilling ride while sharing informative facts and amusing stories about the area. We took their Peggy's Cove tour which included several great stops with the opportunity to meet local artists, sample local cuisine, take... More

I took this tour primarily for the opportunity to ride in the sidecar of a modern remakke of an old style Russian military motorcycle. The ride was comfortable allow full views in all directions. Waves and smiles the whole time from people we passed. Although I came to see the bike, my tour guide Victoria stole the show. The route... More

We had a wonderful tour of Halifax with Bluenose Sidecar! Kevin and Vicki were the best guides, and could not have been nicer. Both the cycles and the sidecars were so fun to ride on, and the tour was very informative. My teenage daughters who normally hate normal city tours, absolutely LOVED this. Thank you Kevin and Vicki!

I was picked up by Vicki at my hotel and I was immediately impressed by how knowledgeable a rider she is and knows a lot about safety and the Halifax area. I was hesitant as I have never been on a motorcycle before much less a sidecar. The sidecar is secure and fun to ride in even for a wuss... More
