“Mildly interesting. Too expensive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We thought "where else can we try falconry?" so we gave it a whirl. It was mildly interesting, but the type of activity you could do at a public zoo. A falcon flew around us, we learned a few things, and we got a photo holding it, but it wasn't worth the money.

“Falconry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

A unique experience. Pricey at $144.00 for 75 minutes. Cody did a good job of giving a history of falconry.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We learned so much about falconry from our tour guide Cody. It was also fun to follow him around as he "hunted" with one of the birds. At the end we each got to hold one of the birds and we were allowed to take as many pictures as we liked with our own cameras.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

If you like nature or birds or hunting this is a must. You will not see anything else like this anyplace else. You get to take a walk with a hunting bird and watch it work. It will dive and swoop around you. The guide knows everything and is very friendly and forgives your goofs (getting too close to the birds with a camera). This is a must if you like birds! Or hunting! You also get to experience eagles, owls, and hawks.
