    Must see place
    Our 3 year old daughter had a wonderful time here! The tour is highly informative and engaging. It was amazing to see the birds up close. Definitely recommend to visit - a very different experience to other Abu Dhabi attractions.

    Great experience
    This is such an interesting place to visit! Knowledgeable staff will guide you through the different rooms where birds are hosted and explain how the hospital operates and show some routine treatment the birds are offered ahead of the hunting season. Fascinating to get a glimpse of the important role of falconry in Emirates society. Grear activity for kids and adults alike.

    Unique alternative sophisticated experience
    Unique alternative and sophisticated experience with real falcons in a real animal hospital. You get a tour of two hours and get to know many interesting facts about the falcons and see a small medical procedure under total anesthesia. Book directly at the website of the hospital for reasonable prices and get there by taxi.

    Falcon Tour - WOW!
    We did the morning falconry tour and it was just phenomenal. We were able to learn about the falcons, see their claws getting clipped and manicured, hold and pet a falcon, and more. Totally worth it if in Abu Dhabi!

    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!

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.

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.

Please close this place. They are the ones in charge of throwing animals in the desert and kill them. They should win the prize of the worst careless place

What an amazing place. If you are interested in falconry or the birds in general, this place is a must visit.
They have very good and interesting tours where they explain everything about falcons and what an important role they play in the UAE and the whole region’s culture.
Definitely a highlight of our Abu Dhabi visit.

Don’t miss this experience. Fantastic guides who are knowledgeable about the Falcon history. A great opportunity to hear about the wonderful work this facility does in terms of medical care for a variety of animals, rehabilitation and release of injured wild falcons, and providing a home for wild Falcons that cannot be released due to the nature of their injuries. Photo opportunity with the Hospital’s own Falcons, who are patient, calm & gentle, going from one visitor’s arm to another. Not just for the kids.
