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.

We headed out from the RR station in N. Conway drove for quite a while without seeing any moose. It looked like the evening was going to be a shut out but Elwin didn't give up. His hard work paid off and he hit paydirt. We were able to get out of the van and take all the pictures we... More

I highly recommend this trip for young and older people. We got back late but happy. Great activity when... More

Had an enjoyable time. It was interesting g to learn about the moose including bulls, cows and new born moose. We saw 5 moose and a black bear. The moose are hard to find but our tour guide Elwin did a good job at finding them.

My husband and I did the moose tour on May 20th and had a really good time. We saw many moose, a bear, and even a fox. Elwin knows the best places to spot moose from his years of experience as a tour guide and growing up in the area. We enjoyed the educational videos and the slide shows. He... More

We took this tour for the first time. It was fun. There was an informative video and slide show. Some juvenile cheery music, but also a nice song about NH, plus a pleasant driver. We saw 5 moose, one of which wanted to hitch a ride, I think. A bonus of 1 black bear and a red fox. We come... More

Video is was very informative and songs were also great. Stop was also very usefull for restrooms but the driver was persistent to show us the moose and he went on same road multiple times and finally saw the moose. Myself and my 10 year old son enjoyed this trip and saw the moose at 12 am in the morning.

This tour is pretty much as described. Went mid week in September and about an hour into it we pulled up next to a moose getting a drink. Actually got off the bus and took some photos. It was cool !

I went on this moose tour with 10 other people and let me tell you it is an experience you will never forget. First off don't expect change even though it's $2 the guy didn't even offer to give us change. At first it seemed we were on route to go deep into the woods like we expected, but about... More

I don't know what happened with the $2.00, I'm not out to take someone's $2.00. I'm sorry the moose did not cooperate sooner, we average 5 moose a night. but I'm glad with patience from the riders and persistence from this driver Moose were seen. Everyone got to disembark and photos were taken ! Awesome if you ask me !... More
