The tarsiers were adorable! I fell in love with these tiny primates immediately. Don’t expect a massive tour or a long walk around the park, the place is quite small but I’m still glad I went. The animals stress easily and so there are attendants...More

A small place with a short round walk to observe the famous little creatures with the big eyes. Dedicated guides show you the secretive animals on their sleeping branches which otherwise the untrained eye would not be able to find. Also they help you to...More

The tarsiers are just flat out adorably cute. They had found 5 on the day I was there. I also like the facility. They try hard to keep people from molesting the tarsiers and they don't interfere with their behavior. They go out in the...More

It has been a special moment when we saw our first tarsier here . It is nice to walk in the woods and discover the small animals, sleeping on the trees but so close to you . It is a simple experience but at the...More

This was a pretty educational experience- I knew nothing about tarsiers. It was a longer drive than expected. There were 4 tarsiers that we saw - all asleep as they are nocturnal. The staff did a good job of keeping people away from the animals...More

The sanctuary is actually larger and houses around 100 tarsiers but you will only be allowed to go inside a smaller area for viewing around 9 adult tarsiers. I respect that they limit the access for tourists since Tarsiers easily get stressed by noise and...More

I wanted to come here as not really knowing much at all about tarsiers and they are cute tiny little creatures. The sanctuary is small and can get around it in about 15-20 minutes. There were quite a few here and there’s staff members close...More

This tour will only take you 15 minutes but it is a unique opportunity to see this amazing animal close up and to take pictures of it. There is also a small but informative exhibition. Car parking available.

We went to this sanctuary after reading online that it was really the only ethical place to go to see tarsiers. As others have said, you pay a small price and then a guide walks you through and points out the tarsiers - I think...More

We visited both tarsier centres in Bohol as our kids are wildlife crazy. When asked which one they’d like to visit again, it was unanimous that this place was better. We liked it more because it was silent, whereas the other wasn’t, it was less...More

Easiest would be to rent a scooter and head there, about an easy 30 min ride. Combine that with Chocolate hills, Bohol and Man made forests, you can spend a day.

Both sights you mentioned are in Bohol. The tarsier sancturary is not that far away from Tagbilaran (20-25 minutes?), but you will have to hire a driver to take you there anyway. Chocolate Hills are little further into the... More

There are several ferry companies that run between Cebu and Bohol. I used the SuperCat ferry that runs three times per day, each way (nice, comfortable fast ferry). The journey takes 2 hours to the Tagbilaran ferry... More
