We happened to run into a group of people who wanted to see the presentation of the falconry so we joined them. It truly is a sport of Kings. It cost us 180.00 but well worth it. I have been to The Greenbrier many times but had never done this before. The falcons were majestic birds and we loved the... 更多
Did the rope course as a family and it was fun. The course was challenging but offers a range of difficulty such that there is fun for everyone. The instructors, Debbie and Ashley, were competent, friendly, helpful and fun to be with!

The Birds are simply beautiful to watch in their environment. It takes a little more than 1 hour(not rushed at all) The pictures you take and the photo you take holding the... 更多
The folks who work with the raptors are passionate and terrific at educating guests. Groups have the opportunity to go falconing and allow the raptor to land on their gloved hands.
When we signed up for the Falconry at The Greenbrier, we really were excited. And the experience fulfilled our expectations. We had a brief lecture on the history of Falconry. Viewed all the different species of the resident birds of prey, which included Falcons, Harris Hawks and Owls. Then, a guided walk out into the woods and we experienced The... 更多
