This was a wonderful experience for all. Do not miss this opportunity to be surrounded (literally!) by these fantastic creatures. Very knowledgeable and passionate staff willing and eager to share their knowledge with you.
We thoroughly enjoyed this. Lots of information on the birds and sport. Great flying demos, and of course you get to hold the birds for a "hero shot". Very unique experience. Handler was more than willing to answer questions. We will be back for the "intermediate" course.
I learned so much about falconry. It was a great experience for the whole family ages 5-100. The birds were beautiful far beyond the intimidation. We had very close up contact with a small group of about 15 and there was lots of time to answer questions and be part of it all.

One of the highlights of our stay...we learned about the history of falconry, what birds are used, how they are trained, and the evolution of the sport to what it has become today.

If you would like an experience for the entire family or just a romantic getaway- this trip is for you! The Greenbrier staff makes you feel special and wanted. It is a luxurious vacation on a hard working family's dime. Take a chance on a memory that will last a lifetime!
