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.

Moose Bus Tour

Very passionate and knowledgeable about Moose. Movies are interesting although the music is juvenile.

We went on this moose tour with our family, the bus was full which was great and there were young children on it. We saw two moose but honestly it's just driving up and down a highway… let me rephrase actually…FLYING up and down a highway. With NO lights on, at 10:30pm at night, this tour guide was going at...

My goal each night is to "See some moose, have some fun, and return safely". Speed limit on some of the 5 NH Route Numbers this tour travels on is 55MPH, yet I'll keep this review in mind on future tours. I do appreciate negative comments posted on Tripadvisor and give them considerable consideration. Like, someone suggested I pass the... More

We went to New Hampshire last week and went on this tour Friday night (7/24). I knew there was never a guarantee but took a chance. We did see moose. I loved Elwin's enthusiasm for what he does. We have 2 children who had a blast. Fun family outing. Lights, stars, video, songs. Just a lighthearted trip with a mission!... More

When taking this kind of tour it is a gamble if you will see anything. Even though we only saw a couple of moose it was most exciting to get off the bus and watch and get some amazing pictures. We will definitely take this tour again!!!

My husband and I did the moose tour on 7/24. All in all it was a success; we saw four moose (4 separate locations)! Twice, we were able to quietly get off the bus and view them. I think it's important for guests to realize that this is real nature safari; the moose aren't going to be strolling in town... More

This was my second visit to New Hampshire and I sure wasn't going to miss a moose this time around. Elwin, proprietor of MWV tours was great. He couldn't guarantee us a moose sighting but delivered anyway. A moose was spotted within minutes of our tour. Halfway through our tour, it began to rain hard. Elwin continued to circle around...

We had an extra night to do something while in the white mountains. I'm a nature lover and have ALWAYS wanted to see moose. My family and I camp in VT and NH a lot and I haven't seen one. Based on the good reviews this tour got, I decided to go on the tour. Being a Thursday night, I... More

The "tour" started about an hour ago and has already gone from bad to worse. The proprietor of this business, whose name I fortunately do not know, kicked my entire family off the bus because we had to "listen to his speech." The riveting speech included telling us that the 1990's video they show on the bus is a "little... More

I've been doing MWV Moose tours with Elwyn at the wheel for the last 5 years now and never disappointed! He is very knowledgable on where to locate moose and goes to every length to make sure we get to see a moose. I have two teenage boys(15 & 19) and we love every time we go on a moose... More

Elwyn was not the friendliest person on the phone or in person. He seemed impatient with anyone who did not do what he expected them to do. We were assigned to a second bus he had for the night and we were kind of glad. That driver was much friendlier. We did see a mother and her baby two times.... More

Having done nearly 1000 tours there's usually a good reason I ask for something to be done. My driver Dan is a great guy and does his job well. I pleased this reviewer saw Moose. More
