Absolutely the best thing we did in Abu Dhabi, hands down. If you have any desire to learn more about Falcons and Falconry this is a must-do. Our guide, Hassan, was incredibly knowledgeable but just as importantly, funny! He was able to keep a crowd that spoke at least four different languages, engaged for the entire tour. It was amazing to be up close and personal to witness a bird “pedicure” and also to watch a feeding from very close up. Even watching a surgery in action was amazing and shows how much these birds are really cared for.

I can’t say it enough: do this tour!

My wife & I visited Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital Sunday afternoon September 6, 2020. They recently re-opened for tours and we happened to be the only group, what a treat! Our host was Hassan, a personable, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable tour guide. Had we not seen a single bird, his good natured manner & expert knowledge/tour would have been worth the visit alone. The tour is very interesting with a good pace including a small museum, history of falcons & ADFH, and interactive discussion with some friendly competition to gauge what you’re learning. No kids were present but it’s clear that Hassan has the ability to hold everyone’s interest, the young and young at heart. The tour of the falcon holding area & exam/procedure room is amazing with numerous birds of several species, size and beautiful colors & vet assistants who provide a brief informative talk while you’re in the midst of 15-20 falcons on their perch. We both held a falcon, with ample time for many photos, including a feeding. Then an up close interaction with the vet performing a 10-15 minute procedure/exam with as many photos/videos as desired, the continuation of the hospital tour followed by a visit to the aviary, a simulated mountain environment. All the staff made us very welcome & were delightful to engage. This was an an amazing opportunity that we had been wanting to do for over a year; one of the top experiences we’ve had in Abu Dhabi. Thank you sincerely ADFH, and especially Hassan!

My husband and I wanted to adopt a cat after our beloved cat died for almost a month, and in the past we only took our cats to the vets in the city which the way they dealing with you depending on your luck and too commercialized.

Until we found our new baby (cat) and adopted from the Abu Dhabi Animal Shelter at Falcon Hospital! The services here was amazing and feeling like they work from heart. We were so impressed and confident that our baby will be safe, healthy and happy from now on! We love ADFH + ADAS❤️

it’s a fantastic trip with welcoming environment and interactive activities throughout the hospital trip, a must see attraction to learn more from the signature of UAE.
however, it’s very unpleasant experience for booking the trip via VooTours Tourism, they have exceptional misleading description and booking system online, leading you thought that picking up is included in the price, in which the travelling fare by self is quite expensive that you can go to the falcon hospital by taxi/ booking private car only. The agency representative just sent you message and asked you to go by yourself after payment being settled and stated no refund! The most important is that the agency really overcharged if pick up not included, around 280AED per person. And actually for tickets only, you can book online directly from falcon hospital with the price of around 180AED only! Never use this agency again with such dishonesty.

The Falcon Hospital was amazing! We have four kids (ages 4-13) and our guide Hasan was great with them! We saw dozens of falcons up close. We held a saker falcon and an owl. We watched a technician care for a falcon‘a talons and feet. My daughter held another falcon and fed it! The aviary had 25 falcons flying around and was so cool! This was superior to a typical zoo experience as it was just my family on a small personal tour.

The location is ideally situated between Dubai and Abu Dhabi which makes it an ideal stop for a visit on the way to Abu Dhabi.
The Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital offers tours of the facility (see website for details) and I would advise a prior booking as these tours could get booked on the day.
The tour is most interesting and the gentleman who showed us around (Mr. Obeid) was most knowledgeable, charming and full of humor.
Without taking away the buzz from the actual tour, I can mention here that besides knowledge of the various types of falcon and their behavior, you will learn about the ‘seasons’ of the Falcon and visit some very, very interesting areas of the facility.
A once in a lifetime type of tour – definitely not to be missed.

A fantastic tour of the falcon hospital and surrounding facilities. A big thank you to our guide, Hasan, who was very informative and made the visit enjoyable with his friendly and fun conversation. This is a must do for those interested in finding out more about UAE culture. I would especially recommend it to those with curious younger children as you get to see a minor (non gory) procedure on a falcon as well as the falcons all lined up in the waiting room. There’s also the opportunity to hold a falcon.

An excellent way to spend a couple of hours.

If you want to do something more local then this is a great side trip when in Abu Dhabi. The tour takes you through the facility and you get to hold a falcon. We also got to hold a small owl which was very cute. The guide is very engaging and the staff that shows the hospital area was very nice. Learned a lot about falcons and their care. We got to feed a falcon - very strong beaks!

This is not a normal tourist attraction so don’t read too much into the negative reviews. This is a working animal hospital. It is also a distance outside of the city center so allow time for a taxi or Uber. It shows up well on google maps.

One of my favourite Tourism Activities in the whole UAE to take visiting Family & Friends. Our guide Hassan was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the Birds & Educated us on them through great humour and storytelling. Watching a live procedure as well as feeding the birds was a highlight.

Our tour guide, Hassan, was funny and informative and kept our two minor children engaged during the tour. We got to see an actual procedure performed on one of the falcons there, held a falcon on our arm, and my wife got to feed a falcon. This was an awesome experience that I would definitely do again!
