I had booked this as a surprise for my husbands "big" birthday and it certainly didn't fail to impress. Adrian was so knowledgable and informative and throughout the half day session we saw and my husband flew numerous birds as well as learning about the breeding programme and how the birds are trained. Even if you go as a spectator... More

Had a great half day 'Meet The Birds' session with Phoenix Falconry. Adrian was very knowledgeable and engaging. I would certainly recommend this to anyone interested in birds of prey. Only gripe is the fact that we never attended the 'introductory course' that people are advised to go on before attending the 'Meet the Birds' session. Adrian was quick to... More

We recently visited Phoenix Falconry for a half-day adventure with Adrian and the birds. The knowledge they shared and the skills they demonstrated kept us engaged and amazed. We were able to help train one of the younger birds while another did the hunting. My husband really wanted to experience falconry and he was not disappointed. The crew at Phoenix... More

While falconry has always fascinated me, I wasn't sure what to expect. But whatever I had in mind, the experiences at Phoenix far exceeded my expectations. While it was a little expensive, we opted for the Falconry Adventure, a full day of learning, handling the birds, and then a falcon hunt in the afternoon. If it's in your budget, I... More

I have always wanted to try this sport. The sport of kings. It was an absolute delight. Although it was a little chilly out and slightly raining (typical Scottish weather), our instructor, Tom, did a phenomenal job. He taught us all about the birds, but never talked too much or got boring. He kept you interested when you weren't handling... More

My brother purchased this for me for a big birthday - it was a lovely surprise. The falconer, Adrian, was so knowledgeable and the birds were just beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone - unforgettable, if you love birds of prey, want to learn about them and get very close to them indeed!

We had a delightful day. Adrian is most knowledgable and entertaining. We learned much. Flying the birds was a wonderful experience! We will certainly go back if we are in the area.

What an amazing experience. I was there today 13/07/2013 for the Phoenix Experience and had an amazing time. Adrian (I think that was his name) is a fountain of knowledge, I have a very short attention span and at no point was I ever not listening. I am hoping to make another trip to see the birds again it was... More
