At the falconry you get to see all of the falcons up close, you even get to touch the and hold them. It is a very cool experience since you can do this no where else. Also, you learn a lot about falcons and their nature.

My husband and were lucky enough to be the only ones who had registered for falconry that day, so we had a private lesson. When the resort is busier, group size can be up to 20 or so. Our instructor was very knowledgeable and offered lots of opportunities to ask questions. Because it was just us, we had the opportunity... More

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.

Beautiful birds and a great trainer Cody, made this experience great! We were in a small group of 4 which allowed the trainer to place the meat in our hand, letting the bird then swoop down and rest on our arm to eat his food. Way to go Eddie! This activity is a must when visiting the Greenbrier.
