Positives first: the cute little guys. They were adorable. But theres not many and the place is quite small. It was raining though so perhaps our guides didnt walk us the whole way around. Was awesome to see them though

A small group of us recently travelled to Bohol with the specific purpose of seeing the Tarsiers. At this Sanctuary we were fortunate enough to see at least of six of them in very close proximity. Our guide was knowledgeable and ensured we got the best views possible. You are not able to hold them, but with her help we... More

Don't expect to see lots of these tarsiers. We only saw 3 during our visit placed by guides on specific locations.

Unique experience watching this little creature national animal of Phillipines. Preserved very well and has some unique features. Very shy and if you disturb or touch a Tarsier they bang their head to death. So please be careful and only watch quietly this wonderful creation of Mother Nature.

One of the most popular thing to do in Bohol is to see the Tarsier up close. Elba, our tour guide shared some interesting information about them. That they do not belong to the monkey family, nocturnal and they are medium size. Just about as big as your fist. Found in the Philippines and they are endangered now. Hard to... More

We visited the sanctuary as part of an all day your and only spent 30-45 minutes here, which was really enough time. It's a fairly steep walk up to the viewing area but it's beautiful. The staff are all very friendly and knowledgeable and help you see and photograph the tiny Tarsiers.

These cute creatures are about the size of your hand and vry difficult to see in their environment. The pictures advertised are misleading. Not worth it in my opinion.

Well hidden in the middle of the jungle, this place really takes care of this little animals. Even if we talk about an enclosure, it's big and surrounded by nature. Far away from the noises of the city or the road that might disturb these little creatures. In April 15 they had 8 tarsiers in the enclosure, we managed to... More
