“Moose Safari”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This was a sisters' trip. My sister wanted to see moose in their natural habitat. We choose the moose safari conducted by Chris Young. It was wonderful - we actually saw 7 moose. Chris was very nice and easy to talk to. He was very informative about the area. The safari made our trip. I would highly recommend Chris Young's Moose Safari.

“Great Moose Safari!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014 via mobile

We went on a private Moose Safari with Chris Young on June 3rd. Chris was punctual and picked us up from The Greenville Inn at 5:00 a.m. We almost immediately saw moose! Overall, we had a wonderful time! We found Chris to be very knowledgeable, and passionate about the moose and about the wildlife you will find in northern Maine. Chris was very well prepared and we found him to be delightful. We saw moose and a black bear while we were out with Chris. I think one of the things that impressed us the most is that this young man cares about doing a good job with his clients. While we didn't see any moose in the pond, we did see several at other locations. The pond he took us to was beautiful. It was peaceful and quiet and the reflections from the trees and rocks were like a mirror. The canoe ride alone was worth the price of admission! In addition, Chris gave us several tips on where to drive to possibly see additional moose during our stay. Based on his advice, we saw a bull moose who stood and posed for us for at least five minutes before he headed back into the woods. We will definitely be back and will definitely book with Chris again!

“Awesome Experience”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

This was our first trip to Maine so we planned a couple of days at Moosehead lake to go on a moose safari. We selected Chris Young because of the positive reviews and we especially liked that he only did private tours. I couldn't imagine trying to enjoy a moose safari in a van full of people. Chris picked my wife and I up at 5:00 am and our journey began. It couldn't have been more than 30 minutes before we spotted our first moose, a female grazing along side of the road. In all we saw about 7 or 8 moose on our safari as well as a black bear. The moose were awesome, however it was Chris that made the experience. He was knowledgeable, enjoyable and kind. A man with a true love for nature and life. We will definitely be back.

This was our 2nd Moose Safari with Chris. This is the best way to see moose. He picked us up at 5am and took us to spots that only guides would know about. We have been on other tours where there are many people on a bus but the "one to one" service is by far the way to go.
Chris is very knowledgeable and even makes moose calls so the moose will come closer. He gives you many facts and teaches you different things about moose. Then all of a sudden…..
Moose! This is why we are out here at 5am! The tour lasts 4 hours and I would recommend Chris's tour to anyone. We got great pictures and plan to show everyone at home. So; if you
are having any 2nd thoughts about booking this…..dont wait…book it now!

“Mission Accomplished!”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Chris provided us with a memorable moose experience! He arrived at 5:30am to pick us up and we spent the next 4 hours enjoying his company and his knowlege of the area and wildlife. Best of all was the cow that Chris mananged to call to us. She lingered by his truck for an extended period of time allowing for some great photographs. We had a wonderful time with Chris and would highly recommend his services to all!
