I took my mom to the basic falconry lesson here. Everything was wonderful. Staff was friendly, the lesson was informative and we left feeling we had the experience of a lifetime!

I enjoyed the Falconry lesson and the bird handling, as well as the other magnificent raptors on display. Generally, I don't like to see such birds in captivity, however these birds all appear healthy and well groomed. The Harris Hawk we handled was well mannered and responsive.

WOW! We had the experience of a lifetime. The birds are beautiful and extremely well trained. The handlers gave background information and a little history lesson. I must say, the first time the bird flew towards me I closed my eyes not knowing what to expect. I was shocked when it landed on my arm and it was so lightweight!... More

I purchased the visit through Travel Zoo for my husbands birthday. We had no idea this existed. We had a first hand experience holding a Harris hawk. The facility had several Hawks, Falcons and a sweet baby owl. Our group ranged in age from 7 - 75. We learned about the birds and was able to ask as many questions... More

I've held birds before but nothing compares to having one fly right up to you and land! It's magical. This was very educational also. I was surprised at how much information was shared in the class. I enjoyed this so much more than other interactive experiences I've had. I'm ready to go again!

My teenage daughter and I loved it! The young women giving the class made it a lot of fun. Definitely worth it.

My husband and I have a fondness for raptors, so this was the logical choice for his birthday. Up close and personal with a hawk, plus being able to handle a hawk, great photo ops, and informative group leaders made the experience well worth the money. I HIGHLY recommend for anyone who loves raptors/hawks and we plan to come back... More
