Important 2020 Season Information for Our Guests

To Our Magical Guests:  We have made the difficult decision to suspend our experience in the Niagara region and look forward to being on the road again in 2021.

The opening of our 2020 season in Wolfville is Thursday, August 13th.  Sadly, we have not be on the road in May, June or July.

We miss you in Wine Country, and when you do come, your safety and comfort will be our priority. On the advice of public health officials, we will be on the road as soon as we can.  While our experience will look a little different, as we keep our guests safe, the friendly, welcoming smiles and hospitality will be the same.

Our 2020 Season

We are excited to announce Tidal Bay Express 2.0 Tour – a new Nova Scotia Wine Country experience. Admission includes safety & comfort on board an air-conditioned coach, entertaining guide to curate your journey, one-hour stops at four unique wineries to enjoy two wine tastings and a yummy, small savoury plate created just for you by the winery chef.  Seating is limited with three departures Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  We hit the road August 13th through to November 1st.

More than ever, you deserve to leave your worries behind. Just sit back and relax, we’ll look after the rest.

For booking visit:

In 2021, we will welcome back our British Double Decker Bus and the flexibility of our Hop On, Hop Off experience.

Our Comfort & Safety Promise:

  • Tidal Bay Express 2.0 is designed with engineered seat partitions providing a physical barrier between all guests on board
  • We have limited guests to twenty per departure and each group will travel in sequence, separately
  • Every day the Tidal Bay Express 2.0 will undergo enhanced sanitization to public health standards
  • Our Driver, Guides and Staff will wear personal protective equipment when greeting guests

At each winery, every effort will be made to deliver a safe, distanced experience.  In some indoor winery spaces, where guests are seated, it will be in groups of ten.  We will also try to accommodate smaller seating configurations whenever possible. We kindly ask our guests to help one another and give each other physical distance.
