Better than we could have ever expected! So glad we went with this locally owned small business instead of a large commercial guide company. It’s a 1 on 1 experience and you are guided directly by the owner, Chris. Chris, you can tell will do whatever he can to put you on a moose! We had the feeling a commercial guide company would be more interested in filling a vehicle, conserving fuel and making the most money possible, rather than giving their customers the best experience possible. We were right! Chris was awesome! Friendly and determined guide who knows when and where to go! We saw 6 moose! 3 cow, 1 calf, 1 small bull, 1 large bull! Chris=MOOSE WHISPERER! Book with confidence. Overall amazing experience!

Chris is an excellent guide. He is friendly and engaging. We felt very comfortable with him. The kids (13, 17, 20) had a great time and asked lots of questions. The night we had our tour a large storm was blowing in. Chris had a plan for the storm - to out race it. It worked great! We saw 3 cow moose from his vehicle. We walked out to a pond and saw 2 deer. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to come back again! Beth was very easy to work with online for set up and payment. She responds right away.

Chris is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide who is an expert in finding the area’s wildlife. On two consecutive morning tours, we saw 5 or 6 moose including a mother and her calf on two separate occasions. We were also fortunate enough to see several black bears, deer and a bald eagle. I would highly recommend booking a tour with Chris if you’re planning on being in the area!

Five enthusiastic stars for Young's and for Chris; I just got back from a morning moose tour and could not be more blown away by the experience. Plain and simple, Chris was an outstanding guide: His knowledge of the area and his passion for animals (moose, in particular) is clear. He understands and respects the animals and knows their habits and their favorite spots, and this makes him an ideal guide for a first-time visitor to northern Maine (like myself). Chris seamlessly navigated an endless network of remote roads as we searched for moose and the payoff was massive: a black bear, one of the most handsome bucks I've ever seen, and then, at the end of the day, a shockingly intimate and lengthy encounter with a moose, truly among the most amazing things I've ever witnessed. Chris may as well be a moose whisperer, and it felt like an honor to be out in his world with him. I cannot recommend this experience enough, and stress how valuable it was to be on a small guided tour and not with one of the big companies that drives you around in vans or buses. Thanks to Chris and to Beth for this memorable morning.
