“A must see”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Fantastic! Best 100 peso I spent visiting this place. The tarsiers are amazing little creature and look like Gremlins from the 80's movie before you put water on them. For an extra 100 pesos you get to have some photos right up close with them. This is the number one thing to see in Bohol and should be first priority on a Bohol must do list

“Supporting wildlife”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

I encourage people to visit this sanctuary to financially support the organization in its ongoing quest to support wildlife and especially the tarsier. The Philippines is not a wealthy country so groups such as this struggle to do what is important to them. (Look up animal welfare groups in the country).
So no, the sanctuary isn't the "prettiest" you will ever see but they are doing the best they have with what they have.
Fortunately, tarsiers are cute as their survival depends upon it.

“Cute Little Critters”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

The tarsiers are what I was most looking forward to during our visit to Bohol, and I wasn't disappointed. Virtually all of the little babies are sleeping during our visit since it was morning, and they're nocturnal, but it didn't matter; I enjoyed simply being able to see them up close. The leaf roofs, which I believe to be constructed by the conservationists, are nice and offer them a solid shade against the glaring heat of the sun.

The steps/trek around the conservation area can be a little tiresome, but it's worth it. We saw the oldest tarsier, who is already 16 yrs., and he looks no different from his younger peers. They're all just so cute. I really wish I was able to see their breeding area; that would have been more awesome.

Anyways, there's a nice souvenir and snack shop at the end of the trail, as usual with most tourist spots, where you can refresh yourself after the touring the conservation area.

“Tarsiers are so cute!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

What i really expect in touring to Bohol is to see the tarsier. Oh well i've seen them. They are only 5 inches and very sensitive. They are super cute. Around the conservation area you will find a souvenir shop where you can buy great finds ;-)
