It's fun to see amazing creatures, just like the Philippine tarsier, it's totally worth visiting while you are in Bohol.

Amazing place! Student guides search out the various night time resting places of some of the tiny Tarsiers each morning in this reserve and quietly take you to see them sleeping in the tropical forest. There may be hope for these endangered animals after all. We met one of the researchers that has helped set up the sanctuary at the... More

I have once again returned to the Tarsier Foundation this year and it really is a treat to see these creatures in the wild and treated with respect. The no touching, no feeding and no flash photography suits me and my guests who I bring there.

I really wanted to see these little guys but wanted to avoid any organisation that caused them any stress. This reserve is a taxi ride away from Alona and seemed to be really well run. It is enclosed but is a very large area ....so they are as near to being in the true wild as possible. I was the... More

Asia is known not to be very animal/pet friendly, but here is a little place that really tries to make a difference. The place is small and does not have much money, but the tarsiers lives under much better conditions than other places in Bohol. There is nothing better than seeing a little primate straight in the eyes, so I... More

I love to travel, and regularly do so, but I have been lazy about joining TripAdvisor. Today, I am joining and I will start to write about the many places I have traveled to. I LOVE primates, so the majority of the places I am going to review will involve monkeys lemurs and/or apes. Like this review... I found this... More

Very nice attraction, recently they made it a law that we weren't aloud to touch the Tarsier, but that's ok, we understand. Definitely worth the visit.

We went way out of our way to not visit the other tarsier attractions, as these magnificent animals should not be in captivity. We liked this place as it obviously had good intentions, and was not created solely for tourists. The priority was the needs of the animals. We saw a few tarsiers, but the viewing was only about 10... More

I would really urge you to go here to see tarsiers. Most tours go to the other place where they are in cages whereas here they are in a forest environment. The keepers go around in the morning to see where they are and then take you to the trees. We were the only people there and it was so... More
