“FALCONRY CENTRE-STOP OFF”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

We were on the Malta Sightseeing bus from Sliema, Hop-on, Hop-off, and decided to stop off in the afternoon. what a great little place, and as there were only a few of us we all got to hold the Harris Hawk and the Owl, and watched the naughty Vulture with his red face! So worthwhile a visit, this lady really cares a lot about these birds, and at only 6 eurus each entry was very good value.A little warning, we were only there about 45 mins when the driver of the bus called to see if anyone was left, as this was going to be the last pick-up at 2.45pm as park was clsosing at 3, this was in Early January, so just check closing times etc when going in. I would highly recommend to anyone, one of our highlights seeing these beautiful birds, and holding them.

“Charming!”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

My friends and I (all in our 20's & 30's) had a fantastic time here! The owner really cares about her birds. The birds are well-trained, and the owner taught us alot about them. She let us hold them, and I even got to run with a decoy for the Harris Hawk to chase!

The clean bathroom was also a plus!

The Malta Falconry Centre has a facebook page where you can find more info.
