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.

Spent a few days in Bohol and picked a full day package tour. This place was first on the list. I loved how they did an amazing job keeping the Tarsier Sanctuary clean and well maintained. I can tell that the employees treat them very well. Lots of room for the Tarsiers to climb trees, keeping the plants enriched for... More

very nice place and very nice people. They take care Tarsiers and all the area around them- every morning they go out in the jungle and looking for the animals, ready for the opening hours. only a few minutes but you pay a ridicolous entry fee for this appoint

When we initially went to see the tarsiers here, the Sanctuary was closed for two days due to a festival of some description. It was lucky that our time here was flexible, so we came back when they reopened. When we came, there was only two little tarsiers that were in the sanctuary, as they are allowed to come and...

Average, for the entrance fee that you pay to help keep/maintain the facilities (whichs is about P60 per person) you get what you pay for. Grounds was unassuming, you have to climb/trek through a path going up. We had a toddler in tow so it was a bit of a challenge - something to think about for families with babies... More
