For MWV Moose Bus Tours... 2016 is our 10th season providing a safe, informative, entertaining, and enjoyable night time MOOSE Tours out of North Conway. Moose have been seen on nearly 1000 of our tours and so for another season it's... Moose Movie - Moose Tour - Moose Fun ! We are 2013 and 2014 and 2015 Certificate of Excellence Winner from TripAdvisor. Ride along as we do a night time 3 1/2 hour MOOSE tour to seek, see, and view New Hampshire MOOSE. Departure time is not always 7:45PM throughout our partial schedule and so please when making your reservation simply 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. At some point there's a bathroom stop where snacks and refreshments are available too. 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 be enjoyable to MOOSE seekers of all ages, adults and children alike. Most will agree it is. With the movie over 2 hours of DVD entertainment is included. Between MOOSE "hot spots" some slideshows of MOOSE photos are played. One slideshow includes a few MOOSE tunes for kids. And added now 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 2015 our "streak" was seeing MOOSE 85 out of 88 Tours thru Labor Day weekend. Yes - 85 out of 88 ! An awesome "streak" ! 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. Please know the MOOSE we seek on this night time MOOSE Tour are wild animals and are unpredictable. We try our best in the time allowed. Again, in 2015 MOOSE were seen 85 out of 88 nights thru Labor Day weekend ! Our success rate is darn good ! 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 ! However, if no MOOSE is seen you're then invited to take the tour again "free of charge". To sum up, for every tour it's attempted for all aboard to have a safe, informative, entertaining, and enjoyable experience... and return saying "We saw MOOSE !". So late May to early October make plans to have this night time MOOSE Tour be part of your 2016 North Conway White Mountains vacation experience and enjoy a night of MOOSE entertainment !

My wife and I booked the tour on line and were suspicious when there was no office to call in where we could pay. The driver is 100% focused on finding moose understandably. We were impressed by the stats that they almost always see moose. However the experience is not pleasant at all. We were driven at speeds well over... More

Readers, I am pleased this reviewer saw moose and even had multiply sightings of moose. I'm sorry this reviewer felt my efforts deserved a rating of only "terrible". Maybe if the tour had been taken earlier in the season and more moose were seen and viewed then possibly the rating left here would have been better....The fact is 2015 was... More

Our Fall schedule is usually Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays yet I was reminded the day of this reviewer's Tour that back in August I had accepted a reservation for that night, Wednesday Oct 7th. Once a reservation is accepted it's honored. I pleased to say Moose was seen. We finished 2015 with a very successful September and October - Nice... More

This tour started from the North Conway train station so it was close to where we were staying. There's no office there for the tours but it's easy to find the station and there's plenty of free parking. Before heading out we were told what to expect and were told that there was no promise of seeing moose. We understood... More

Have never visited North Conway and it's a delightful New England town. During our week we took this moose tour on the first Sunday of October. It starts with a "moose movie" as we head north out of town. Very well done and informative as we road along. The driver, Elwin seems to have distinct places where he slows down... More

So I've been on wildlife tours before and I understand that it's always a gamble and risk, you pay, you don't always see wildlife. But this time it was ridiculous, the driver, who I think was the owner, drove very fast it was hard to spot anything and when people on the bus did spot something, he was not interested... More

Whereas we never want to someone to leave a rating of "terrible" what's kinda "RIDICULOUS" here is that this reviewer talks about how she's done all these things in all these places and my business is basically the first comment she ever posted on TripAdvisor. That's UNUSUAL !. Kinda STRANGE ! And it's a "terrible post"... Great ! Let's me... More

This is a night time tour! We did not get back until midnight, so probably not the best for small children! We had a good time and did see 2 female moose. The driver is also the moose spotter! The only thing that would make this better would be to have a moose spotter separate from the driver!

I went on a Moose Tour over Labor Day Weekend. I was unsure how it would go. Who wants to go if you don't get to see a moose. I have to say I was able to see three Moose. The company made every effort to make sure we were able to see them in the wild. The trip was... More

This tour was great. While you can't be sure of spotting these magnificent animals,, we ere lucky enough to see a large male and observe him for several minutes. What a sight. An exciting experience, one I would recommend to everyone. We also spotted several deer which were beautiful.

We had a great time on the moose tour! The driver was friendly and funny. He made sure to keep us entertained and updated while driving around. It was fun to see and hear that after years of driving around the moose tours, he was still excited to see moose himself. This to me shows his love for the animals.... More
