It was quite a very short detour although it was our, together with my two little boys, first to have seen the smallest monkey in the world. My hubby was our tour guide. There were like 3-5 tarsiers out on that because most of them were caged (i think, that's what the staff told us since it was mating season... More

I think there are three similar places but this is the best one to visit. Although we didn't visit the others this one seems to be the most official and most conservation orientated. We enjoyed our visit. Of course this isn't the Serengeti or the Masai Mara but given you are going just to see one animal it is well... More

Although there was little to see aside from the Tarsier, and the area was in rough shape following an earthquake, seeing a tarsier made it worth it. What a beautiful little creature

This was nice however these Tarsiers are also being fed. A nicer option would be really seeing them in the wild, but that would not be an easy task as they are very small and hard to spot in the trees. Still, they do treat them well as the tourists are required to be quiet and look at them from... More

This place seems like the real deal compared to the Tarsier conservation area further inland. We visited both but much preferred the less money orientated Sanctuary. The Tarsier's are however just as cute and sleepy in both places!

We stopped here on our day tour of Bohol. I was a little skeptical on visiting this attraction since I am always concerned about the animals treatment. When we visited it was not that busy and we could see the little guys quite clearly. The environment was natural and the visitors were respectful. I would definitely visit this facility if... More

We met a few travellers who volunteered at the sanctuary and told us that the tarsiers are kept in cages every night and are placed in the trees every morning so that they are easy to find. They told us exactly where they would be placed and when we visited to see if this was true just as they had... More

This is an animal you have to see. They are SO adorable you just want to hug them and cuddle with them :)! But you can't, because they are very little( can fit to your hand) and very easily can be scared and then they will bite you or die themselves :(. There are not much left them in the... More

Visited here on our way to the chocolate hills and were there at 9 when it opened and had the place to ourselves before the tour groups arrived. It's only a small place and when we visited there was 3 Tarsiers. It won't take long to walk round but the guides are very good and they are the cutest things.... More

If you are in Bohol you just have to go there to see the cute Tarsiers! Although it is full of tourists and it is not very big there's no way you want to miss out on this opportunity.
