Description: For Moose Tours 2015 is our 9th season and it's... Moose Movie - Moose...
For Moose Tours 2015 is our 9th season and it's... Moose Movie - Moose Tour - Moose Fun ! We are 2013 and 2014 and 2015 Certificate of Excellence Winner from TripAdvisor. For this summer this Moose Tour will provide both Driver and Guide in New Hampshire's only "School Bus Moose Bus". So ride along as we do an evening 3 1/2+ hour MOOSE tour out of North Conway. Departure time is not always 7:45PM throughout our partial schedule and so please when making your reservation confirm the time you are to meet the bus. To begin an informative movie about New Hampshire MOOSE is shown. All find it to be excellent. There's a bathroom stop where refreshments are available at some point during the tour. We are able to seek and view MOOSE after dark because our MOOSE bus is allowed to use floodlights and spot lights to seek and see MOOSE at night. It's attempted to have this adventure enjoyable to MOOSE seekers of all ages, adults and children alike. Most will agree it is. Between MOOSE "hot spots" some slideshows of MOOSE photos are played. All seem to enjoy them. One slideshow includes a few MOOSE tunes for kids. And added this year is a new slideshow with Shaw Brothers' music and only HD photos. Everyone is invited to disembark the bus when possible. Historically a success rate of over 96% is found and in 2014 we saw MOOSE 78 out of 81 nights thru the summer season. In the past this Tour has provided an average of 5+ MOOSE being seen every night and some nights 10 or more MOOSE were seen. In October sightings have been tougher, yet that's when there might be a sighting of a Bull MOOSE with full grown antlers - which is exciting ! Please understand there's no guarantee and know MOOSE are wild animals. We're not visiting a zoo and MOOSE are unpredictable. We try our best in the time allowed. If no Moose is seen the you're invited to take the tour again "free of charge". For every tour it's attempted for all aboard to have a safe, fun and enjoyable experience... and return saying "we saw MOOSE !". So make plans to have this evening MOOSE tour be part of your North Conway White Mountains vacation experience and enjoy a night of MOOSE entertainment ! Got a large group ? Our buses now include a 22 passenger, a 26 passenger, and our new 46 passenger. These vehicles are available for hire not just for a private Moose tour but also to be reserved in advance for transport of groups of 10 or more people within North Conway and the greater Mount Washington Valley. Call for more details about the Moose Bus shuttle.

As well as seeing 3 moose we saw a bear too! We can't fault our experience. The driver keeps you entertained during the ride to and from the moose spotting area with DVDs and slide shows about moose and New Hampshire. There is a break half way through so you don't need to be worried about not being able to... More

Elwyn, our driver and guide, made sure we had the best experience possible. We ALL saw moose - he made sure that both sides of the bus had viewings. Very entertaining!

Me and the by we're kind of skeptical. About doing this one because it was a long tour for a 3 year old and my 11 year old sister and because of the bad reviews we had read on here. I didn't find that he was speeding at all he seemed to be doing the same speed as the traffic... More

This is a tour with a guide who has the attitude that his clients paid to see a Moose and they are going to see a Moose! He explained what was going to happen before the tour began and followed through on all his promises. He play DVD's that he had prepared to entertain us while we were traveling from... More

Well worth checking this out, not a guarantee you are going to see moose but they sure try hard to see that you do by knowing where the moose " hang out"! Just go and have fun.

I was very excited about this tour hoping to see a moose and thinking there was a possibility that I may not see one. It started out with a guide who gave a brief talk never once making eye contact with the tourists and staring at the ground during his talk. Once we were on the way, I became really... More

This review is essentially a repeat of an earlier review "Moose-napped", so similar it's like it was written by the same person. Possibly a good friend of the competition is the cause. Anyone who knows traffic in North Conway in August knows you can only go as fast as the car(s) in front of you, so how fast could one... More

This is a night my wife and I will remember well. Tour included bus all set up with TV, stereo system and used for a handful of DVDs which included moose programs, slideshows, and these kept us entertained for the ride. Left North Conway about 8PM and around 9:30PM came upon a moose and her baby. I couldn't believe the... More
