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 !

I have been on moose viewing tours before, and I have to say they were quite different. Perhaps they were "closer" to the Moose laden areas....or maybe there are so few moose these days that we not have to drive around like mad men to...More

Glad that moose provided a nice viewing. We drive at or below posted speed limits yet do travel on two roads which have posted speed limits of 50 and 55 mph. No mention of how many times bus was pulled over to allow cars to...More
