We had so much fun on this adventure! We had never heard of a moose safari and my husband kept asking people where to find moose. (We are visiting NH from Georgia.) Someone at our hotel mentioned that we might be able to catch a safari. The North Conway Safari was amazing. The tour guide drove us up and down the same road over and over. He was determined and his determination paid off. We saw 7 moose!!! We saw a baby alone, a couple of cows with their calves, and a bull moose!! We didn’t get back to our hotel until midnight so if you have young children, take that into consideration. The bus was comfortable. One of the highlights of our trip through New Hampshire!!

I would imagine this tour your would be good, if we saw any moose. We saw none. The driver did mention, when we boarded the bus, that the success rate is less in September. We drove for 4-4.5 hours, without seeing one moose. To ease the boredom, he showed videos. Perhaps for those who are not from this area, he could have told the history of North Conway. Or he could have offered us a discount on a future Moose tour.

Sorry no moose seen. In mid September we were 83 out of 89 nights seeing moose !!! And so yep 6 nights out of 89 didn’t see a moose and this reviewer was on one of those 6 nights. Bummer. No guarantees in September and October. Sorry. September and October pricing is $10 less per person than mid August. September and October already discounted. It’s $35 cash per person for the night. Four hours. Not a lot of money in this day and age most will agree. This company is all about having people look at moose and unfortunately there will be nights moose not seen. But 83 out of 89 nights is pretty darn good ! Recommendation is you do this, if possible, do it in May or June, best in late June, if not June then July, if not July then August. Don’t wait until after Labor Day to do this if possible. Most find the nearly 2 hours of unique wildlife DVDs played enjoyable, educational and helpful to pass the time. Have not kept any tour out really late this year so yes some nights moose not seen. Departure time is 8pm and we shoot to be back by midnight and vast majority of nights have returned on time. Some nights the moose are on time. When the moose aren’t on time most riders appreciate the extra time spent looking for moose. Again unfortunately this reviewer went on one of the 6 nights out of 89 moose not seen. And if had babbled on about the history of North Conway let’s say no good deed would go unpunished. No doubt there’d been complaints how was babbling about the history of North Conway when expecting a “quiet night looking for moose.” And readers you can get real time moose sighting updates late May thru Columbus Day by visiting our Facebook page “North Conway Moose Safari Moose Tour”. We have a 4.7 rating there too. Weekly posts include “Bull Moose Monday” and “Black Bear Thursday”. Your invited to follow along like over 24,000 people now do. Safe travels everyone….

My family and I were so excited to go on this trip. There was 23 Total people on our trip packed into our "party bus". Prior to leaving, we were advised we would be going to a different route because the other company was not out that night. We started on our trip and stopped 10 minutes into the trip for a bathroom break. After a 15 minutes bathroom break, we started again on our adventure. Down a busy highway we go continously pulling over to allow others to pass us. 1 star rating because of the following 1) Played outdated videos while driving around vs being interactive with customers 2) Instead of using mounted spotlights, used 2 handheld ones spotlights while driving down a HIGHWAY over the posted speed limit 3) Bus sounded like there was something wrong with it 4) Drove the same stretch of highway for 4 hours. Didnt go off the busy highway and went back and forth for 4 hours. 5) Numerous others on trip very frustrated and bored 6) SO BORING several...including myself....fell asleep at one point 7) Two bathroom breaks totalling 30 + minutes out of the tour We saw 1 baby moose about 50 yards about an hour after our first bathroom break but definitely NOT worth the time and money we had invested in it. Very disappointing.

Wow ! They saw a moose and were still totally bored. Saw a moose and was Disappointed !!! Leaves a 1 star review. Sorry, even saw a moose and this is their response…. so many nights the driver gets a round of applause for being able to find a wild native New Hampshire moose in less than 4 hours and this rider leaves a 1 star review on TripAdvisor. If this “Debbie Downer” thinks some glow in the dark stars on ceiling and a ‘clap and cheer” sign lit up when a moose is seen (and near all actually cheer and clap when moose is seen) makes a party bus then well …guilty as charged. All meant to add fun to the evening. Driver Elwyn has now logged over 1600 trips and over 200,000 miles driving our moose bus since 2007. No driving issues or tickets. Bus is mechanically sound. 2022 will be his 16th season and he’ll go over 1700 trips done. Tens of thousands of people made happy over 15 seasons….. just not this reviewer. With no bathrooms available in town that first bathroom stop has been popular this year. It’s not done because the driver wants to sit there and wait, it’s done kinda out of necessity and sorry this reviewer found it such a hardship. The nearly 2 hours of dvds are enjoyable and educational and helps pass the time. The black bear DVD is timeless. The slide show was created by this company just a few years ago. Maybe this reviewer had already passed out and missed it. Most find it very well done. The moose dvds are not new but the content is still appropriate. They’re the 2 best moose dvds available. If not they wouldn’t be included. Elwyn does interact, but with driving unfortunately not able to walk back and forth in the isle showing magic tricks. Not sure what this reviewer was expecting. Not sure if anything would have made this reviewer happy given so many others offer a different opinion after experiencing this. Many give a 5 star rating. The majority of riders are happy with the experience offered in doing this activity. Be sure to read those reviews too please. Good news folks ! We had a tremendous season seeing moose. In mid August we were 72 out of 74 nights. In mid September still a respectable 83 out of 89 nights. Pretty darn good. Many nights photos and even some nights videos are taken. Each night is different. Yet this year we’ve seen a lot of different moose in different places. It’s been awesome returning to town knowing everyone could say “we saw moose”. You know, like this reviewer did. Others fell asleep says this reviewer. Well if actually happened then maybe they were content that their bucket list had been taken care of. They can now rest peacefully, they have now see a moose. Their bucket list taken care of. Readers don’t be a “ Debbie Downer “ like this reviewer apparently is. Please ! …. you can get real time moose sighting updates by visiting our Facebook page “North Conway Moose Safari Moose Tour”. Posts are done near nightly in season and a few a week in the off season. We have a 4.7 rating on Facebook too. Weekly posts include “Bull Moose Monday” and “Black Bear Thursday”. Everyone is invited to follow along. This moose Safari moose tour and driver Elwyn has earned an excellent reputation throughout the Mount Washington Valley. The bus recently purchased out of California is basically like new. So want additional recommendations then just check with lodging front desks throughout the Mount Washington Valley : The Merrill Farm Inn, The Grand Hotel, The Holiday Inn Express, The Golden Gables Inn, The Hampton Inn and water park, Residence Inn by Marriott, The Fox Ridge, The Red Jacket and Kahuna Lacuna Water Park, The Briar Cliff Motel, The Colonial Motel, The Spruce Moose, The Kearsarge Inn, The Eastern Slope Inn, The White Mountain Hotel Resort and Golf Course, Eastern Inn, Adventure Suites, The Stonehurst Manor, Wildflower Inn, The Old Field House, The 1785 Inn, The Bartlett Inn, The Jackson Inn, The Snowflake Inn, The Wildcat Inn, The Wentworth, and Whitney's Inn in Jackson - all will speak well of this moose tour and of their guests thru the years seeing Moose and having good times too on this North Conway Moose Safari Moose Tour.

Thank you for this. It makes for a good night when the moose show up. Get to light up the “cheer and clap” sign. It was awesome how that great bull moose stopped and looked back at everyone before retreating to inside tree line. Just awesome.

I spent 10 days in Vermont, NH and Maine and not a moose did a see...until I went on the safari. And since it was dark when we went, I know I wouldn't have seen them without being on the tour. You just don't know who's out there! I had a nice time on tour, and we saw 2 moose. While it would've been a greater experience to see more (or maybe even see a bear), obviously these are elusive and unpredictable wild animals. It's not a zoo. I felt like our tour guide did his best to give us the best experience possible. I'm so glad we saw moose. He also offered us education on moose so I learned a lot and was sad to learn that a small deer tick is destroying the moose population. Thank you for this cool experience.

Thank you for the kind words. Now the 2nd week of August 2021 we have a 98% success rate this season which is remarkable. Our 70th tour of season is tonight. Some nights sighting has been “brief, brilliant, and gone” yet all aboard enjoyed the moment. Many nights photos and even some nights videos are taken. Each night is different. Yet this year we’ve seen a lot of different moose in different places. It’s been awesome returning to town knowing everyone could say “we saw moose”. Are nights without moose in our future ? Certainly yet 98% thru mid August again is remarkable. Readers you can get real time moose sighting updates by visiting our Facebook page “North Conway Moose Safari Moose Tour”. Posts are done near nightly. We have a 4.7 rating there. Weekly posts include “Bull Moose Monday” and “Black Bear Thursday”. Everyone is invited to follow along. Safe travels everyone…
