“Educational, but maybe not the best value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

My friend and I enjoyed our "class", but it is quite expensive for the experience you get. However, it is educational and maybe a once in a lifetime experience. We got a good lesson on the history of the sport and the birds. Our instructor, Cody, was very friendly and knowledgeable. He showed us very good demonstrations of the the hawk's hunting prowess. We got to hold the food and the bird landed right on our arms. He indicated that we got a very good experience because it was just the two of us. If it is a larger group, not everyone gets to feed the bird, but you do get a picture with it. It doesn't seem like the price you pay would be worth it if you are in a larger group.

“This was a wonderful education experience.”

My son and I learned so much, and the experience of having a huge falcon land on your gloved arm was awesome! I encourage anyone to have this experience whether you are traveling with small children, teenagers, or as a couple.

“Birds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

Expensive, but great to do! Loved it. They took us by shuttle to a field by the hotel. We walked into the woods. There we found lots of birds and someone to instruct us!
