Small but very informative

There were not many butterfly when we went there but the short tour was very informative. It's part of many tour packages and it's definitely something to see.

We had a very good tour guide that did some tricky photos for us. Two couples over 60 on a full day drive around the Isl. Not many Butterfly's about as it was off season but we saw a few and had a nice stay and some good laughs with the guide. IF in the area this is a must... More

I imagine this trip to be truly boring if not for our guide, Ligaya. Good that she lived up to her name's meaning which is Happiness or else it will just be weird. Each step you take in this Sanctuary will be a belly laugh as you try to listen to her somehow informative talks that turns to fits of... More

I only saw two small butterflies. Not worth the trip cuz there is nothing much to see at all! The The only good thing about this place is that the tour guides were funny cuz they would make silly comments while informing us about butterflies etc. that's about it!

Just a short little stop on a day-long tour, but this was a really nice way to spend half an hour or so. Beautiful butterflies and knowledgeable guides to show you around. We kind of thought this was going to be a waste of time, but it was lovely. Not worth going out of your way for, but on a... More

It was a must on our list to do in Bohol. The tour guide was brilliant and funny at the same time as well as Very knowledgeable. Lady Gala butterfly and tiger butterflies is very interesting to know. The place is small, but the Customer Service from the young tour guide made our tour enjoyable. Sorry we forgotten your name.

Waste of time! Luckily the entrance fee was only 20-25 pesos. This was part of a bigger tour. I saw more butterflies on a hike in the PH than I did in this sanctuary. You have a guide that walks you through the sanctuary educating you with info that's only half accurate. As you walk through the place the guide... More

It's a very pretty place but the young man who does the tour is the real attraction here. He made the lack of butterflies kind of insignificant really. He made jokes about them being lazy and needing to "get to work, we have customers". There are butterflies, don't get me wrong, and the place is very pretty. Well worth stopping!

Boring! Decrepit and little to see. The butterflies was missing. Need to be refurbished and maybe use more film and some interactive installations!
