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 ! « less

Having been told by Elwyn there was no promise of seeing a moose my expectations were in check as we started the tour. Was told we'd watch a movie, look for moose, have a stop at the trading Post, then go from there and away we went. About 30 minutes into the tour Elwyn slowed down and told everyone to... More

Had a fun trip with moose safari guide Elwyn. We were picked up promptly at the North Conway train station at 7:45 and headed off for the search. On the way, an educational video about moose was shown. Elwyn diligently looked for moose in their usual spots by way of floodlights and handheld spots, but the moose were not cooperating.... More

Not sure why this Long Islander felt the need to begin post with "Beware" and I am sorry no moose were seen this September tour. In the TripAdvisor description it does state that " fewer moose tend to be seen in September and October". No mention that they were picked up at resort on time and returned same - They... More

I am making a lot of people jealous with the pictures from our Moose tour! We had 4 kids (ages 12, 6, 6, & 5) with us and while I was nervous they would be exhausted from the late-night, they were wide awake and excited until the tour ended at midnight. They do show a Discovery Channel type moose video... More

The moose tour was so much fun for our family! Our driver was the owner, Elwyn. He called us to confirm the reservation the morning of the tour and told us what time to arrive that night. We met at Conway Scenic Railroad and he spoke briefly about the tour and loaded the buses. Videos are played on the bus... More

It was prompt and organized. Video about moose to pass the time while driving. When we found our moose we were allowed plenty of time to observe and take pictures. A great experience.

When in North Conway my 9 year old grandson became fixated on moose. All he talked about was wanting to see a moose. With this tour within walking distance of our hotel I booked a tour and went. My grandson not only saw his first moose he also so enjoyed the experience. He got such a kick out of the... More
