Owner description: Moose movie - Moose Tour - Moose fun ! We are a 2013 and 2014 Certificate of Excellence Winner from TripAdvisor. Ride along as we have some fun taking an evening 3 1/2+ hour MOOSE Tour. To begin an informative movie about New Hampshire Moose is shown. Most find it to be excellent. Some nights an actual Moose is seen while the movie is being played. That makes for a good night for all and takes the pressure off the driver early ! There's a bathroom stop where refreshments are available then the tour continues. Between Moose "hot spots" a slideshow of Moose photos with some fun Moose tunes is played. We are able to see 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, children and adults. Most will agree it is. Everyone is invited to disembark the bus when possible. Historically a success rate of over 96% is found May thru August with an average of 5+ Moose seen. Some tours see even more Moose and it's always great to hit double digits ! Fewer Moose tend to be seen in September and October, yet those months also can provide sightings of Bull Moose with full grown antlers - which is exciting ! Please understand Moose are wild animals and are unpredictable and that makes every tour different. 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 !

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 !

Took this tour and saw a mother moose and her baby. Tour started with a informative movie about moose. There was a stop, then a slideshow was shown. We came to the end of a road and turned around and a few minutes late the driver was shining lights on a beautiful moose ! I quickly saw there was also... More

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

Ok, so we saw a few moose! That part was great! But overall it was a strange long tour. We sat on a bus from 7:30-12:15am. The tour is created for children- songs that sound like they were created for Barney, a light show, glow in the dark stickers, slideshow played to children's music. And nothing against a tour created... More

Not sure how this reviewer sat on the bus starting a 7:30PM when departure times in 2014 have been 8PM and 7:45PM, but oh well....It's true, this North Conway Moose Tour has become known as a "family friendly" night filled with Moose entertainment. The summer of 2014 saw lots of families enjoy this Tour, In fact, business was up. During... More

We went on a Saturday night. We had 2 full vans and met up with a larger van. We kept driving up and down the same road. I thought we would go into the woods or something but we didn't. There is a bathroom break and you can get something to eat. They showed us informational movies and fun trivia... More

This North Conway moose tour company enjoyed great success in 2014 seeing moose 77 out of 80 tours thru the first of September which is 96% like we advertise . This reviewer went on Labor Day weekend which was one of the three nights moose weren't seen thru August. Fortunately it's not done often because moose are seen by all... More

I have to say the idea of a moose tour was quite exciting, however did not turn out to be what i thought. We drove up and down the same highway (quite fast, I might add) and as it was a cold night I figured he might at least have the heat on, however all the windows were open and... More

Family went on this North Conway Moose Safari and enjoyed the experience. With bus equipped with TV we watched a movie and a slide show of moose photos while we cruised looking for moose. Was not disappointed as at one point everyone was invited to get off the bus and take photos of a moose only about 40 feet away.... More

Took this trip with two families including 4 sons aged 18 down to 10. Everything was great except that were a little anxious with the fast driving. We understand, though, that he has time constraints with viewing the moose and that he drives these roads all the time, but were all quite "white-knuckled for a good part of the trip."... More

Thank you for "Fun night for all ages..." . It's attempted to have a Tour which may be enjoyed by Moose seekers of all ages. Most agree it is. Will keep what is said about driving in mind, yet do drive at or below the posted speed limits, granted many zones are posted at 50 MPH and even 55 MPH.... More
