Owner description: For MWV Moose Bus Tours... Starting May 2017 is our 11th season providing a safe, informative, entertaining, and enjoyable night time MOOSE tour out of North Conway. Moose have been seen on over 1000 of our tours and owner/operator Elwyn Wheaton now has over 3000 hours experience driving at night in New Hampshire MOOSE country. So for the 2017 season it's again... Moose Movie - Moose Tour - Moose Fun ! We are 2013 thru 2016, and 2017 Certificate of Excellence Winner from TripAdvisor. Ride along as we do a night time 3 1/2 hour MOOSE tour out of North Conway to seek, see, and view New Hampshire MOOSE. Departure time is now always about 8PM to 8:30PM throughout our partial schedule so please when making your reservation just confirm the time you are to meet the bus at the train station so you don't arrive too early. To begin the tour, an informative movie about New Hampshire MOOSE is shown. All find it to be excellent. At some point there's a bathroom stop where snacks and refreshments are available too. We are able to seek 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, adults and children alike. Most will agree it is. With the movie nearly 2 hours of DVD MOOSE entertainment is included. Between MOOSE "hot spots" some slideshows of MOOSE photos are played. One slideshow includes a few MOOSE tunes for kids. And added now is a slideshow with Shaw Brothers' song "New Hampshire Naturally" and only HD photos. All find it done well. And our buses have windows that open for photo opportunities. Also, we disembark the bus when ever possible so to better watch and photograph the moose. Again, last year, like most years, MOOSE were seen in all but a few nights ! Pretty awesome! Our social media page is updated regularly too. To sum up, for every tour it's attempted for all aboard to have a safe, informative, entertaining, and enjoyable experience... and return saying "We saw MOOSE !". So late May into October make plans to have this night time MOOSE Tour be part of your 2017 North Conway White Mountains vacation experience and enjoy a night of MOOSE entertainment !

Great trip, very informative about the life of a moose. Saw a handful of moose on our tour and was even within 10 feet of one when it walked along the side of the bus. Definately would go back next year to do it all over again. Plan on making it a yearly trip.

I loved my experience with Moose Safari - I have always wanted to see Moose and that is exactly what I did. Not only did we see 5 or 6 Moose but we also seen a bear and the driver stopped at a safe distance so we could watch the bear as well as stopping each time we seen Moose. The driver was very helpful both prior to the trip suggesting good places in the area to camp and just before the trip when we needed to find a bank to get the cash we needed to pay for the trip. Not only did we stop to watch Moose and a Bear but on the drive out the area where we would see the Moose the driver stopped at 2 beauty spots and allowed us time to take photos - and also a little trading post where we were able to have comfort break and buy souvenirs. Elwyn knew the Moose in the area and could identify several of them as ones which he has seen previously. As someone who is still involved in the Camp America organisation I would recommend this tour to any one being placed at a camp in New England or planning to travel there!

We went on the Moose Safari as a group of 5 - grandma, mom and 3 teenagers. You might think the teenagers would be bored with such a trip, and you would be wrong! We had a great time looking for all the wildlife we could see. We saw several moose moms and babies along with singles. It was a grand adventure for us flatlanders from manatee country.

Thanks for the great experience including the teenagers.

Labor day weekend we decided to give the moose safari a try. We had read all of the reviews so we were aware of what to expect. Elwin our guide explained the safari to us. We were on the safari for 4 hours riding the roads in search of moose. Unfortunately we did not see any but we did see a mother and her cubs. During the safari Elwyn played some movies about moose that we're interesting and informative. Elwyn really went out of his way to try to find moose but we were just not lucky. When The safari was over Elwyn indicated he would refund 1/2 our fare because we did not see moose. How fair and considerate was that? He really did not have to do that. I am not sure how other reviewers could be upset with the fact the did not see moose. We were told many times that could be a possibility and were given the option not to go on th safari. This group is not in business to rip off tourists that is for sure. Great Job!
