      Very nice tour to the most important viewpoints with very good historic information
      Excelent tour with our two guides Dan and Lars. Both were funny and knowledgable, we enjoyed the tour very much. I think we learned a lot about the local history in combination with the stunning viewpoints they showed us - especially the out of the town ones …

      Incredible tour
      What an amazing day! If you do one tour in Calgary- make it this one. I cant thank Nicole and Lars enough. What a great way to see the city and all the way up to kananaskis. Amazing views, such lovely/ knowledgeful and passionate people. We went to the distillery which is incredible and has great food and drinks (and merch). It really is a special day and the sidecars are so comfy! Thank you both so much. We will cherish the memories and pictures forever.

      Awesome way to see country. Better than a bus.
      We had an awesome day. A great way to see the rocky foothills around Calgary. Four of us went. Drivers were very personable. The narration via the Helmut worked perfectly. Pick up was right on time. If you are cold blooded I would highly recommend dressing in layers. It was cold for some in our party even though Temps were above 80.

      Fun, Informative and well organised
      We chose this tour because we wanted to have a fun and informative activity during our short stay in Calgary. We were very happy with the whole experience, from the time of booking until the conclusion of our tour, and would not hesitate to recommend Rocky Mountain Sidecar Adventures for anyone wanting to do something a little different during their visit.

      What a hoot!!
      The Sidecar Tour of Calgary was better than we hoped for. Not only was it fun being driven around the city and nearby neighborhoods in a low slung sidecar (which felt completely safe), but our drivers were so knowledgeable, personable and entertaining. Yes, the cost for the tour might initially scare some people off, but for us, it was a fantastic value. And as out-of-town tourist, this tour really brightened our impression of Calgary overall. Zoom, zoom!!

      AMAZING Calgary Tour
      Nicole was truly AMAZING. This was the BEST tour of Calgary I could have even imagined. You feel totally safe in the sidecar and you’re able to communicate with the driver through the headset. Nicole was knowledgeable and friendly. It was a blast and took some great pictures and learned a lot!

      Fun way to see Calgary !
      We wanted to do a tour of Calgary & when we saw the motorcycle side car tour we thought it would be something different & fun way to see Calgary. And it certainly was! We enjoyed every minute. The sidecars were comfy & we felt v safe at all times. Our drivers (sorry I’ve forgotten names) were friendly and knowledgeable. We could all talk together through the headphones & microphones. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience!

      disappointing
      Well, I guess after seeing the rockies for the last week, I was disappointed with the rolling hills.... the sidecar was pretty cool to be in, and the drivers had stories and info about the area. But nothing in the adventure to say... Wow. It felt like we just drove in the foothills with no adventure. They said get your cameras ready to take a picture of each other.... so we did. So I got my phone out to take a picture, then we drove around the corner thru water and got soaking wet.... and so did my phone. Then it was my husbands turn and they did the same thing... soaking wet. What the heck? On Sept 11 at 18 degrees. Not a good choice on their part. Then drove another 40 minutes or so, wet. A good review was that they were accommodating with the weather and they picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel.

      Fantastic way to see the city.
      Worth every penny and my kids loved it! I wanted my teen boys to do a City of Calgary sightseeing tour but knew traditional type tours would just be boring for them. This is definitely the way to go.

      Excellent sidecar adventure!
      My husband and I asked for a custom tour of downtown Calgary and the surrounding country-side. The tour guides arrived promptly, were very hospitable and personable. They reviewed the COVID safety precautions and even provided neck warmers for added protection. They were knowledgeable about the area and the motorcycles, as we asked lots of questions about both! We had a wonderful time exploring in the side car and felt safe and comfortable throughout the whole trip. We would highly recommend this tour company for anyone!

      Fun Way to See Calgary
      This is a great way to see Calgary! Had a terrific tour with Warren on a beautiful, sunny and crisp day that really showed me the history of Calgary. Amazing views and a lot of fun. Definitely a bucket list "to do" item. The sidecar was comfortable and very safe. My tour guide was excellent.

    Best tour ever! I was initially a little apprehensive; I'm not a biker nor am I in the first flushes of youth, but the sidecars were safe and comfortable! The guides were friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area. The tour was excellent and was a brilliant way to see parts of Calgary that we had previously missed. We will definitely be back to try the other tours next time we're in Canada!

    This review is long overdue. My wife and I were in Calgary in August celebrating our anniversary. Discovered the tour here on TA and booked immediately. My wife is a ghost tour fan so combine that with a motorcycle sidecar tour and we thought this would be a winner. Both the drivers and the guide were very informative and fun. They combined driving with some stops for longer stories at haunted sites (which included refreshments and bathroom breaks). The team seemed like people I would hang out with if I lived in Calgary. Very professional drivers. Great storytelling, Cool people.
