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.

My family and I were spending a destination Thanksgiving at The Homestead . My daughter and I decided to do the falconry program due to my interest in birds & wildlife . It was an absolutely wonderful experience ! The hawks fly so close you can feel their feathers brush your face ! . My daughter "tweeted" a photo holding... More

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.

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!

Falcons and hawks are beautiful birds and to watch the trainer work with them was a treat. The one she took out followed us along the train and responded beautifully. Got to have one land on my arm!

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... More

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!
