    Unforgettable experience!
    Definitely number one on my list of things I’ve enjoyed the most while in UAE! Amazing staff giving all possible details about falcons, their lives and their importance to the Emirates. Seeing those beauties up close and be lucky enough to feed one of them was just an icing on the cake.

    Everyone needs to see these wonderful place!
    Had not heard of this place but 2 lovely US women strongly recommended on our desert safari n BBQ trip. We followed their advice and so pleased we did, Hassan our guide made the visit not only informative but funny also. We came away feeling knowledgeable about a subject we had no idea of previous to visiting. A must visit for young and old alike!

    Excellent tour and amazing experience!
    We had a fantastic tour of the Falcon Hospital complete with seeking an anaesthetised falcon get his claws and beak trimmed, an explanation of the extensive feather graphing process, pictures holding a falcon and I even got to feed a falcon a quail. Amazing experience. Our guide was knowledgeable, fluent in several languages and very entertaining. I highly recommend.

    The best trip we did in Abu Dhabi
    Thank you for an unforgettable experience. This trip was by far the best thing we did in Abu Dhabi. The staff are so knowledgeable, the birds are beautiful and treated with kindness and respect. We watched a procedure, handled the falcons, saw them feed and toured the hospital. I could have stayed all day!

    A unique experience
    A wonderful guided tour of the falcon hospital. We had the opportunity to get really close to the falcons, even holding them. The guide was really knowledgeable and we learnt lots of new facts about falcons. Highly recommended.

    I Liked The Tour
    Glad I took this tour. It was interesting. You get to see the birds up close. Hassan was a great tour guide. I did have to wait a bit for a cab ride back to the hotel. It's kind of out of town. Nice cafe. Small gift shop. Worth a visit.

    Extremely entertaining and informative
    Was not really sure what to expect with this, popped in while on a lay over. Very glad I did. The tour guide, Hassan, was very funny while also being very knowledgable on the falcon and able to answer any questions people had. But the high light was actually going into the treatment areas and having the chance to see the birds up close and, see the team here actually work on a bird needing a nail trim (which was knocked and could be stroked) and to have the chance to hold the Falcons on gloves and even feed them! Fascinating and well worth a visit.

    A great tour
    This place is great! Our guide was really interesting and knowledgeable. We got to see the falcons having their check ups, then to the falcon hotel, flying area and also see inside the hospital. The visit was well organised and set out. You need to book in advance on the website which is very easy. Our only downsides were that there were no baby changing facilities (seems common in UAE), and also taxis and Ubers don't know its there and struggle to find it! We would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Abu Dhabi.

    The best experience ever.
    It was a great experience that I ever had. I knew more knowledge about the Falcon. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. I would like to recommend to everyone to come to Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital to know more about Falcon. They are taking care of Falcon very gentle and well.

This was the best! We really enjoyed our tour of the falcon hospital and were very lucky to see a procedure during our tour. All the guides were great. We loved holding the gyr falcon and one lucky person got to even feed her. It’s really a privilege to see these beautiful birds in person and learn more about them.

The tour itself was really informative and engaging. The guide clearly loved his job and kept the entire group entertained. The hospital also showcased birds other than falcons which was a nice surprise. Unfortunately the hospital is let down by some of the staff being unfriendly (specifically the man on reception for one) and how difficult it is to get here. All roads leading to the hospital are closed for construction so unless you have a …creative driver who is willing to drive on the wrong side of the road, you won’t get here (I only made it on a second attempt a few weeks later!) And if you do, it will be an expensive taxi because they first spent time figuring out where to go. This ended up being such an expensive thing to do since on top of the tour ticket (170 AED) I spent 185 on the taxi for the first failed trip and then 220 on the second trip when I actually was able to access the hospital. I don’t think the tour is worth 575 AED which is why I rated the overall experience as poor. If a refund was an option, I would have taken it after the first failed trip. The hospital should really provide information on how to get there given the ongoing access issues.
