These cute primates are safe in their environment and we are able to get up close and see them while they rest.

This is the best part of our panglao tour. We enjoyed every part of it. The garden, the museum and the view at the restaurant. Magnificient. We tried the cakes. They are delicious. Especially, the chocolate cake. I forgot the exact name of the cake.it was really good. Although, there are lots of mosquitoes. So better put an insect repellant... More

The garden here is closed at the moment while villas are being constructed but the restaurant is open and serves amazing food. We drove through the grounds and they are beautiful and lush with pots and sculptures among the flora. Horse riding lessons are available Would love to have seen it all

The restaurant offered a fairly good meal for a fair price. We heard that there were no actual Tarsiers in the place but the owner's surname was Tarsier. So don't go here if you want to see the rare animal variety.

Only four Tarsiers to see after a long climb up a hill in the rain. The little critters are damn cute.

It's a must see point of your tour through Bohol island. The Tarsiers are such lovely creatures. At the sanctuary you get a 5 min lecture, learn about their habbitat and learn to respect these sweet animals. It's good that there are volunteers working there to help preserve the endangered species. If you want to see our photos of these... More

Really nice little creatures that are so quiet and sweet. You have to be quiet and don't touch them because they are getting stressed and they commit suicide by hitting their heads on the trees. So sad story though....

We were so happy that we got to see the Tarsier up close. It was so hard for my parents (senior citizens both in the 70's) and my baby niece to climb up the rugged stairs. It was also drizzling at the time we went.

This was nice but short and didn't really explain anything about the animals and what there habits are, mostly just told not to use flashes and look for them..
