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

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

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

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

2014 saw a lot of repeat riders, some enjoyed their 2nd, some their 3rd Moose Tour.... one family of girls shouting "Moose, Moose, Moose, Moose, Moose !" after seeing Moose comes to mind. Makes it even more fun for driver and all aboard these nights. But good to know theses families look at taking a tour more than once worthwhile... 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

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.
