At least it is less advertised and there are less cars on the parking - you can see up to 4 tarsiers that are previously positioned in specific spaces by the staff (please remember that they are nocturnal and normally u could not spot them) - it seems more respectful of the animals but you cannot avoid wondering how will...

Years ago we were able to see and touch or put the Tarsier on one's shoulder. So there is an actual interaction and close encounter. But since is stressful to the endangers species this is no longer allowed. You can barely see them because they are all under the leaves or in the tree They are all small. Silence must... More

Walking through the bush and look for tarsiers with an experience guide. It was a really great experience and worth the time if you're in Bohol.

the tarsiers are so cute and so delicate. i saw at least 7 . We have to be very careful and quiet because they don't like noise and because they are sleeping during day time. I love this little guys..

This was definitely a highlight on our Bohol trip. It was fascinating to read about these little animals and then quietly move through the jungle and spot the tarsiers. We were able to get a close look at 5 of them during our visit. The staff make sure that visitors move along quietly and stay on the paths so the... More

It is a drive from the ferry but we had a tourist van with 11 people stuffed in. We spent the whole day driving the island. Finally almost at the end of the day we visited the sanctuary and this made the whole trip worthwhile. They are real they are so small and obviously endangered. It is great to see... More

First of all, make sure you go to the right place. There are many tarsier "conservation" sites in Bohol, but only this one is a real sanctuary. We had a very pleasant visit, although I was surprised to find out there were only 8 tarsiers there. The guide was helpful, friendly and took us through the site explaining all the... More

I had a pleasant visit to the sanctuary, as part of a guided taxi tour of the region. There is a walking path that leads visitors around the sanctuary. Staff members are aware of where the tarsiers are resting (clinging to tree branches and underneath large leaves) and position themselves nearby, both to let visitors know where the animals are...

It was a good opportunity to know more about this quiet animal. Detailed description was given about the origin and classification of Tarsier its food requirements and the factors that let this animal commit suicide by the guide. However, during the tour and across the sanctuary we could hardly see few tarsiers. We have gone there by ferry from Cebu... More
