After many trips to Maine, NH, VT, never saw a moose. Well I got to see the moose finally. Chris was a very informative guide, picked us up on time, went to a bunch of locations. Would definitely do another tour with him - thanks!

We went on the morning tour and it was a great experience! Chris was a great guide and very informative. He was right on time for picking us up where we were staying. We saw 7 moose in total and were able to take lots of pictures. The trip was well worth it - great way to see moose!!

I've been a collector and lover of moose since I was a child. We booked our trip with Chris 6 months in advance. Our tour with him into the deep woods of Maine was the highlight of our trip. The pictures we got were amazing. Chris was very informative and the scenery was beautiful. I highly recommend his services.

We had scheduled the canoe trip on the lake to look for moose to photography, but the morning of our adventure, the wind was blowing 1000 mph (not quite). Chris was right on time at 5:00 AM not encouraged about what we might find and reluctantly telling us we couldn't go on the lake in this wind. We piled into... More

The safari with Chris is well worth it. He picked us up on time from the Lodge we were staying at. We opted for a land trip rather than the canoe. Within 15 mins of setting off we had seen a bull moose. Chris was able to take us really close to him. In total we saw 5 moose and... More

When my husband and I decided to visit Maine I just knew I wanted to go on a moose tour! Hubs, however, was less thrilled about the idea, especially when I told him it was 3 hrs from where we were staying and it started at 5am. Yes, we got up at 2 and drove 3 hours from Poland Maine... More

Take the time to do a moose safari, but only do it with Chris. I'm so glad I researched the different options and chose Young's Guide Service. Stay away from the big outfits who only care about making money and don't really care if you see any moose. We had such a great morning with Chris. He picked us up... More

As our guide, Chris Young came across with enthusiasm and knowledge as well as a caring sensitivity and deep love for his home grounds. Chis was eager to share yet willing to learn. Both Craig and I felt very lucky to have experienced a bit of the wild area of Maine with Chris.

Our moose safari with Chris was the highlight of our trip to central Maine. During the 4 hours that Chris drove us through the woods ( it was too windy to use the boats) we saw 5 moose, 2 bears, a deer and her fawn. We also got in some bird identification. Chris was conversational and educational, telling stories and... More
