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.

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!
