The day was packed with activities bus was loaded with friendly, excited people. I met new friends, learned a great deal from a Naturalist who led our forest walk, had my first yoga class and ended the day painting a bright moon behind the trees in a class led by an artist who provided every possible thing needed; easels, paint, aprons, brushes, etc. Bird calls were piped through the sound system of the very comfortable bus and there was even an essential oil diffuser and a cooler for our lunches. Thank you Nature Bus for a wonderful experience.

I had a WONDERFUL day “nature bathing” with Suzanne and her amazing Nature Bus! Suzanne thinks of everything necessary to give people a memorable experience. The bus is super comfortable too! The one and only Yolanda Imprevento from Beach Belly’s Yoga started us off with yoga on the beach! Afterwards, we enjoyed a hike in First Landing State Park guided by expert naturalist Stuart! Our day ended with a quiet meditation in the woods and a silent hike back to the bus. This experience is truly something everyone should do for themselves! Take time out for you! It is well worth it.

We had an amazing day today on the Yoga and forest bathing tour with The Nature Bus.
Gorgeous weather, relaxing breathe yoga on the beach and a fulfilled walk through the woods with a naturalist (Stewart) who is full of interesting conversations and notions about insects and micro-organisms.
Can’t wait for the Foraging tour!
Totally recommended day of self!

Excellent service! Very well planned. At the end of my stressful semester, I got the opportunity to enjoy an evening with nature bus and their team. I am glad that I went on this adventure because this adventure helped me to cope up with my work and study stress. The staff is well trained in their unique service.

I had a wonderful time today with an awesome group of nature lovers. The trip to Lake Lawson/Lake Smith natural area was well planned and executed with everyone’s needs in mind. Suzanne is an outstanding Nature bus host and Gail combined historical and nature information in an engaging and fun way. I would have to say Outstanding, well done, and thank you so much! – Melanie and Kayo

What a great day for yoga on the beach and a nature walk at First Landing Park. My daughter and I had a great time and looking forward to more events.

Aurette C DeCuffa reviewed The Nature Bus — 5 star
Leave the planning and the driving to The Nature Bus and enjoy a magical day outdoors! I had the most incredible day making new friends and learning about edible wildflowers and the history of the great Kiptopeke State Park! So many options– rent bikes or kayaks, take a nap in a hammock, learn to crab or fish. This is the best way to enjoy a new adventure whether you gather your own group and suggest a spot or sign-up for a trip expertly planned by Suzanne. She thinks of everything to make your day enjoyable! I look forward to the next adventure with The Nature Bus!

Hila DeBono Stephens reviewed The Nature Bus — 5 star
Choose your next outdoor adventure and don’t worry about a thing. Nature bus is fully equipped with all the gear needed for marvelous day outdoors. Join a tour or craft your own with your party. Coolers, hammocks, mosquito nets, blankets, field cooking gear, s’mores kits and everything else is included. All you have to do is show up. Thanks Suzanne I had fun kayaking with you at sunset, it was a definitely a day to remember.

Carla Grassia reviewed The Nature Bus — 5 star
I scheduled a private camping event for 12 of us to Sandy Bottom Park. Everyone had a wonderful time and I’m already looking at scheduling another trip. Suzanne was wonderful in helping to organize the trip with lots of suggestions before and during our trip. She was able to hire an artist so we could paint in the park and have everyone take home a canvas which was a definite winner amongst the group. She was very flexible with our plans and had no problem driving our group out to dinner when we had pouring rain that put the Kabosh on our campfire plans. Waking up to a fire the next morning was the icing on the cake! Much needed coffee was ready in minutes. Lol. Highly recommend The Nature Bus for your next small group adventure.

Amazing Nature Adventure
TripAdvisor review: Green Places
We had a fantastic time with Suzanne on our Green Spaces tour. We were a small group of three, but Suzanne kindness made the experience exciting and super fun. It was a great way to get to see some of Virginia’s native flora and fauna. Would highly recommend this excursion for anyone who loves nature!

The Hampton Roads Digital Shutterbug photo club took the bus to Charlottesville this weekend. Suzanne and Gary were amazing hosts, even adding two extra destinations en route.Lots of fun was had by all.

Awesome photography tour on The Nature bus. Their service was outstanding. planning the adventure specific to our group. Suzanne is full of energy and every detail is perfect.

Merle Mills
I have taken several trips with the Nature Bus, the most recent, to the Great Dismal Swamp. In addition to the fine hospitality of hosts Suzanne and Kevin, we were accompanied by a historian who is an expert about the area. The Trips, including this one, are not only relaxing, and enjoyable, but informative and educational. I anticipate many more Nature Bus experiences!

Chrissy Maire
Such a great experience! We did water colors in nature. The bus driver Susanne was amazing and the water color teacher was fantastic! I definitely be coming back and bringing my family!

I went on a tour with The Nature Bus to the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and it was so much fun! Suzanne and Gary (the owners) went out of their way to make sure we had an incredibly comfortable and fun trip and our tour guide Bob was so knowledgeable about the area both at the Refuge and on the way. Highly recommend this experience to everyone!

Michelle DuBose
I want to thank you and Gary for allowing all the amazing women and I enjoy the wineries in Charlottesville, Va. The bus certainly added an element of fun for the group: Thank you for everything!

A weekend to remember forever.

Review of: All-Inclusive, Autumn Weekend Tour for GROUPS of 10-16

We traveled, as a photo club, to the western part of Virginia to enjoy the Fall Foliage. Our stops included a covered bridge, an active water fall, a rail road museum, sunrise and sunset photography opportunities and a visit to an apple/peach orchard are examples of what we all enjoyed so much.

The level of detail and concern to ensure we all had a great time epitomizes the level of service provided by Suzanne Moss and her husband. The bus was spotless, the timing and priority for sunset and sunrise photography was achieved with ease, the priority provided to our group by a very popular tavern in Charlottesville area, Michie Tavern provided a great “flow” for our travels, the concern to ensure that adequate rest stops were provided ensured everyone’s comfort, great story telling by Suzanne on the bus expedited the “travel time lag” are just a few reasons that the NatureBus exceeded expectations.

The NatureBus provides a variety of eco-sensitive opportunities to enjoy nature. This is a great opportunity to sit back, laugh and enjoy nature. It just doesn’t get any better.

Do this! Nature Bus on Saturdays

We visited a covered bridge, a spectacular waterfalls, an historic train depot, special lunch at Micche Tavern, then the Apple Orchard. Early birds went to take sunrise photos.
We all had a wonderful time, our hosts are the best.

Awesome Photography Adventure

My photography club used The Nature Bus fir an outing to Covington and Charlottesville VA. Covered bridge, water fall, fall foliage, train museum, and apple picking! Suzanne IS the Nature Bus. She is very organized and her attention to detail is superb. We will be using her again for our a future adventure.

Weekend photo safari

The Hampton Roads Digital Shutterbug photo club took the bus to Charlottesville this weekend. Suzanne and Gary were amazing hosts, even adding two extra destinations en route.

Suzanne even got up at o dark thirty to squeeze in a sunrise trip to Skyline Drive for the three of us who wanted to go.

We asked to see a covered bridge, a waterfall and trains…they delivered on all !

I highly recommend.

Review of: Tour of Virginia Beach, for GROUPS of 10-16

Getting together with peers and getting away from the work grind. It was nice to be at the Oceanfront and visit the lovely gardens and historical artifacts from this region at the Waterfowl Museum at DeWitt Cottage as well as riding the Nature Bus with such an exuberant owner, Suzanne Moss. Great docents at the Museum. I learned how diverse the offers were with the Nature Bus as well.

Guiding the Guides

We were a group of newly-certified Virginia EcoTour Guides, and this was a class trip.

The bus is so neat! I love that it’s outfitted for nature journeying and guided tours. We went to the Great Dismal Swamp and got a great overview of the place with a bonus stop at a green vendor fair at the mall.

Get Back to Nature

If you live in Va or visiting, I really encourage you to check out The Nature Bus if your looking for a day adventure or maybe a weekend. It’s a family owned company and it’s a great way to see of some of what Va has to offer. So far I’ve only been on two due to covid, looking forward to more. The owner Suzanne and her family go above and beyond to make sure all have a great time. Where ever the road takes ya, they always find the best informative guides. Also I love it’s not a large crowd and all CDC guidelines are in place to keep everyone safe. If you’re looking for fun and want to meet new people and just have a good time, in my opinion you can’t go wrong. She’s also open to suggestions for trips others may be interested in or if a group of family/friends want a specialized tour, she’ll arrange that too. Suzanne and The Nature Bus are a gift to Hampton Roads and VA. They do trips most Saturdays and some weekends, do yourself a favor and check it out. I’ve lived here all my life and The Nature Bus has taken me to places I never visited.

Ladies Private Tour

Just completed a wonder afternoon with Suzanne and The Nature Bus. Booked a private adventure with Suzanne for a group of 12 ladies visiting VB. After pick up at our hotel we had lunch at the Leeping Lizard, per Suzanne’s suggestion. Great choice. We then ventured on to First Landing National Park for a 90 minute trail hike with a naturist, Stewart. Very much enjoyed him and the hike. Beautiful area. So glad we booked with The Nature Bus. Very unique tour enjoyed by all. Thanks Suzanne, it certainly was a pleasure to work with you in planning the event and meeting you.

Very impressed with the Nature Bus!

I live locally but have traveled a lot. The Nature Bus is right up there with some of the best tours I’ve taken. I went to the Dismal Swamp with their Saturday Escape tour. Although I’ve lived near the Dismal Swamp for 25 years, I learned so much. The guide was excellent at communicating her knowledge and love of the Dismal Swamp. It was easy to meet up with the Nature Bus at the designated location. The people running it were extremely friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend Nature Bus.

Review of: Tour of Virginia Beach

I loved this tour!!!! When I first read about the stops on the tour, I was hesitant to come. I am so glad I did. Suzanne (owner and bus driver) and Bob (our historian and guide) were phenomenal!!! I learned so much about Virginia Beach’s history. And the added bonus was the opportunity to partake in a Black History Month celebration at Princess Anne County Training School. Thank you for sharing so much knowledge about this area. This tour makes me want to explore Virginia Beach/Norfolk area more, learning about the rich history in this area. If you like history and are visiting Virginia Beach, take a tour with The Nature Bus!!!

Hospitality! Virginia Beach to Charlottesville. Super comfortable and clean bus. Fun games while we traveled. We visited 2 Vineyards, ate at Charlottesville mall, stayed at Boars Head Inn and had a yoga class. Highly recommend the Nature Bus for a scheduled tour or a customized one like we just took.

The Nature Bus has been a great way for me to see a new area, as I just moved to the east coast recently.

I can tell a lot of thought is put into Nature Bus excursions!

Review of: Painting in Nature, for GROUPS of 10-16

We had the BEST time on the Nature Bus! Suzanne and Kevin picked us up and took us to grab lunch at The Green Cat Cafe and then we all had a nice picnic at First Landing State Park. After lunch, we had a guided painting session right under the trees. It was so beautiful! Kevin is very artistically talented, and helped us all create beautiful masterpieces.

It’s clear how much Suzanne takes pride in her family owned and operated business. If you’re looking for a fun, outdoorsy group activity, I HIGHLY recommend The Nature Bus!

Review of: Painting in Nature, for GROUPS of 10-16

I have gone on sightseeing / day bus trips in towns I was visiting in. I always think it is a great first day activity to get the layout of the land & have the opportunity to go back to anything we loved. I was invited to join a group on the NATURE BUS in my home city. I love the idea of a small bus and few people (bus can hold up to 16). With a smaller group we are able to do more in less time because we unloaded and loaded quickly, didn’t have to wait around for 50 people, and parking was easier. Suzanne Moss & Kevin Moss welcomed us warmly. The bus is brand-new & very comfortable to ride in. For the trip made for us we stopped at the GREEN CAT to pick up lunch to take to the park. Once at first landing park we had a picnic. Suzanne brought tablecloths for the picnic tables along with water & yummy coffee. After lunch we set up for the painting of an oak tree. Kevin, the artist showed us ways to create our master piece while Suzanne refill beverages & checked on our painting supplies. They never made us feel rushed to go to the next spot or leave. They let us be at our own pace. The spot they picked was perfect, even had a restroom nearby. Suzanne & Kevin explained each bus trip is customizable for each group….painting, wine tasting, nature, yoga … if you have a place in mind – they will take you. For the best experience it is suggested to plan your trip in advance so The Nature Bus team can make reservations & plan a timeline for the day. This is such a wonderful activity for any group really…. A b’day, a bridal shower, co-workers event, reunion…. & they can make the tour specific for the age group. I have been on many city bus tours all over the country and I have to say that I recommend THE NATURE BUS for anyone (local or visitor).

Review of: Riding Rapids, for GROUPS of 10-16

I’ve been on two Nature Bus trips so far – bird watching and white water rafting – and would definitely recommend for groups looking for a fun day trip outside. The bus is nice and clean, and the staff is very accommodating – this is a family business and it’s obvious they truly enjoy what they do. White water rafting was awesome – we lucked out with perfect weather and beautiful water. Our group had a blast throughout the whole trip – special thanks to the staff for letting us play music through the bus speakers and sing our hearts out the whole way home!

Escape the to the Eastern Shore

We had such an amazing time with Suzanne and her son Kevin. They were very accommodating and made our trip the best they could with what Hurricane Dorian handed us. If you are looking for a day adventure definitely choose them!!!

Eastern Shore Day Trip

I live local but did the day trip to the Eastern Shore. What a great time with friends! The bus was VERY comfortable and clean and the tour guides very knowledgeable. I’ve been to the Eastern Shore before but definitely learned some new information today. Our kayaking trip was cancelled because a hurricane came through yesterday but they quickly changed our itinerary, and we still had a good time. Great weather for a nature hike, lunch at a brewery and a stroll through Cape Charles. Highly recommend.

Nature hike @ first landing

Very informative and engaging tour with a super friendly staff. Brought me back to the days of fun elementary school science field trips (but by no means just for kids)- would definitely come back for some of the other possible tours! I’ve been coming to this state park since being a lil boy, and still found plenty to learn. Much appreciated guys!

A Sample of Nature

We went on a small sample of the first landing tour in order to get an idea on what the tour was about. The tour guy was helpful and talked a lot about what was around us. I learned a lot and would definitely check out what other options they provide as they do so many different tours. If you enjoy group trips and learning about different areas, I would check out this tour.

Nature Bus was probably one of the most organized and fun summer camps that my son has ever experienced. They went from... parks to beaches to trails, campsites and museums. I was really surprised of how many activities they had and how well prepared the teachers were with their materials and daily scheduled trips. Suzanne and Stephanie provides lots of brilliant ideas and above all they are the most caring individuals with pleasing personality. They provided so much stuff like, variety of materials, daily snack, nature journal, backpack filled with art supplies, binoculars, magnifying glasses, guide books, insect nets and more. Every day our son came home happy and an already asked us if he can go again next year! When your child gets home so emotional and wants to cry after their last day of camp that’s when you know the staff did a “FUNTASTIC job”. Kudos to you Suzanne and Stephanie! Totally worth every penny. Thank you Nature Bus for making this a memorable summer camp for our son. We look forward to next year!read more

We had the BEST time on the Nature Bus! Suzanne and Kevin picked us up and took us to grab lunch at The Green Cat Cafe... and then we all had a nice picnic at First Landing State Park. After lunch, we had a guided painting session right under the trees. It was so beautiful! Kevin is very artistically talented, and helped us all create beautiful masterpieces. It's clear how much Suzanne takes pride in her family owned and operated business. If you're looking for a fun, outdoorsy group activity, I HIGHLY recommend The Nature Bus!read more

We scheduled a kayaking adventure but Hurricane Dorian had other plans. My wife reached out to the owner Suzanne, and... she recommended other options for our trip. The day turned out beautiful! We enjoyed a nature walk on the Eastern Shore, had lunch at Cape Charles brewery, ice cream at the Brown Dog Ice Cream shop and explored the historic town of Cape Charles. We were educated, fed, and entertained on a leisurely day trip. Can't ask for more. #shoplocal #supportsmallbuisnessesread more

We scheduled a kayaking adventure but Hurricane Dorian had other plans. I reached out to the owner Suzanne, she was... very punctual and kept me posted on different options for our trip. The day turned out beautiful and we enjoyed a nature walk on one of the trails on the Eastern Shore, had lunch at Cape Charles brewery, ice cream at the brown dog homemade ice cream shop and explored a little of the historic town of Cape Charles. If you're looking for a one day adventure give them a look, it will be worth it!!! #shoplocal #supportsmallbuisnessesread more

I scheduled a private camping event for 12 of us to Sandy Bottom Park. Everyone had a wonderful time and I’m already... looking at scheduling another trip. Suzanne was wonderful in helping to organize the trip with lots of suggestions before and during our trip. She was able to hire an artist so we could paint in the park and have everyone take home a canvas which was a definite winner amongst the group. She was very flexible with our plans and had no problem driving our group out to dinner when we had pouring rain that put the Kabosh on our campfire plans. Waking up to a fire the next morning was the icing on the cake! Much needed coffee was ready in minutes. Lol. Highly recommend The Nature Bus for your next small group adventure.read more

Leave the planning and the driving to The Nature Bus and enjoy a magical day outdoors! I had the most incredible day... making new friends and learning about edible wildflowers and the history of the great Kiptopeke State Park! So many options-- rent bikes or kayaks, take a nap in a hammock, learn to crab or fish. This is the best way to enjoy a new adventure whether you gather your own group and suggest a spot or sign-up for a trip expertly planned by Suzanne. She thinks of everything to make your day enjoyable! I look forward to the next adventure with The Nature Bus!read more

I had a WONDERFUL day “nature bathing” with Suzanne and her amazing Nature Bus! Suzanne thinks of everything necessary... to give people a memorable experience. The bus is super comfortable too! The one and only Yolanda Imprevento from Beach Belly’s Yoga started us off with yoga on the beach! Afterwards, we enjoyed a hike in First Landing State Park guided by expert naturalist Stuart! Our day ended with a quiet meditation in the woods and a silent hike back to the bus. This experience is truly something everyone should do for themselves! Take time out for you! It is well worth it.read more

The day was packed with activities bus was loaded with friendly, excited people. I met new friends, learned a great... deal from a Naturalist who led our forest walk, had my first yoga class and ended the day painting a bright moon behind the trees in a class led by an artist who provided every possible thing needed; easels, paint, aprons, brushes, etc. Bird calls were piped through the sound system of the very comfortable bus and there was even an essential oil diffuser and a cooler for our lunches. Thank you Nature Bus for a wonderful experience.read more
