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

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

We drive at or below the posted speed limits, granted many zones are posted at 50 MPH and even 55 MPH. To do otherwise would get us in trouble for impeding local traffic. More

My family and I spotted two moose of route 302. It was our first sighting of our vacation so, naturally, we were thrilled. However, it was very quickly ruined when the moose tour pulled up and the moose got scared off (I am NOT saying they were scared off by the bus, the driver, or any of the passengers, just... More

This is an exaggeration of what actually occurred and the people on my bus actually got a good chuckle from it. I did not lose my temper, just had a conversation with driver. This vehicle with New York plates was sitting on the side of the road with lights on and a barking dog in the back seat expecting moose... More

What a joke this trip was. We were in a caravan of three busses speeding back and forth on a strech of highway in the white mnts while the driver turned on spot lights while driving down the road trying to find a moose. Web site shows beautiful DAY light pic,s . Well after a few trips back and forth... More

Readers - this review is written by the father of the girl, both who were parked beside the road with their lights on and a barking dog in the back seat of their car, who claimed in her review that I was rude. She made it clear she did not participate in actually taking the tour whereas this father does... More

This was one of the highlights of our trip! Elwyn went out of his way to accommodate his guests. And best of all we saw moose - a brother and sister pair and then later on a mother and her baby. Definitely a worthwhile adventure.

A post by a reviewer who actually took the tour ! Folks, these moose are not easy to find because it's well after dark that they're found. For you to drive dark unfamiliar roads after dark is not recommended. Choose instead to enjoy a night of moose entertainment ...and readers- please know the North Conway Moose Safari Moose Tour has... More

I first have to say that it had rained all day. It let up just before our trek began. An interesting movie was shown while we drove about 45 minutes.........to a gift shop. After everyone took a bathroom break and stuffed themselves with ice cream, fudge and moose souvenirs, we began our back and forth travel along route 302. Supposedly... More

This reviewer went on night, in the name of safety, did not drive whole tour route and in fact watched slide show with buses parked because it was pouring buckets. Now into August can say we've seen moose 55 tours out of 55... More

It was nice to have a local driver who knew the area and where to look for moose. He showed an informative moose video while we were driving to the area with moose. It was a good way to keep us from getting bored. We saw one bull, 4 cows, 2 calves, a black bear and 2 foxes. Great experience!
