The tarsiers are not caged so the guides have to go out every morning and search for any that they can point out to visitors. I wish that they would educate the visitors better regarding their behavior around these little creatures (e.g. keeping the noise down; staying x number of feet away; not moving the leaves and branches near the...

Thank you for this review and for the rating you gave us! We are glad you can to visit the tarsiers with us. And we will note your suggestions as well. Although we instruct the local guides to tell the guest to keep the noise down, no shaking of branches and keep distance, probably they just missed it that moment.... More

The little tarsiers are so adorable. The sanctuary holds eight of them and for 50php a friendly guide will show them to you. They go out each morning to try and find them. One day you might see one, another you might see all. They have a small but sufficient information centre and you can see the little animals real... More

I'm not sure if there are other places in the world where tarsiers can be found, but I have not seen this elsewhere. The tarsiers were asleep when we visited, so I wish they had some tour guides to give us something to do. Loved the food options outside. We drank fresh coconut :)

Hello, Thank for writing a feedback. However, it was not the Tarsier Sanctuary you visited but a viewing facility we have completely no link to. We NEVER allow guest to do the tarsier encounter tour without a guide. :) We are located in Corella, Bohol and nowhere else. More

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

We enjoyed seeing and learning about the Tarsiers. You must be able to navigate uneven surfaces to enjoy this refuge. If you are able to complete the tour, it is beautiful and educational.

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