This was a nice place to see the Tarsiers as most of them are just living at the trees which were eye level. The place is small but sufficient. Their guides are also friendly and strict. Bohol is lucky to have these creatures and is one of the main drivers of the tourism industry. Please go there early around 9... More

It was a refreshing experience to trek through the bamboo forest and look for the tarsiers. The guide wasn't offering any information; all she did was point out where the tarsiers were resting. If you had questions, you could ask, but other than that, there was no commentary provided. This could have been improved by giving training to the guide... More

No one should miss going to the tarsier sanctuary while in Bohol. This place cares for and protects the tarsiers. No guide accompanied us during our tour there, but since there were pathways, it was easy enough to roam about. The viewing area is quite big, and you can walk around a lot while looking for these tiny creatures holding... More

These unique little creatures are well worth a visit but expect it to be quite staged. We saw only about 6 of them, because they are solitary nocturnal animals and each one was closely guarded by an officer, so it is not as if you are really seeing them in the wild. If you do decide to see the Tarsiers,... More

While in the Philippines, you must stop to see the tarsiers! This sanctuary is well kept and they care for the wellbeing of their animals. Great stop on the way to the Chocolate Hills though a bit off the beaten path.

Great place to see the very cute tarsiers without harming them. The viewing area has 8 of them in an enclosure big enough for them to be at ease. The sanctuary hosts about 100 tarsiers in the surrounding hills. Guides will lead you directly to the animals so that you can quietly approach without disturbing them. Rules are clearly explained...

Loved seeing the tiny little tarsiers. This sanctuary is much smaller & quieter than the tourist trap near Loboc. The tour doesn't take long - about 20 minutes. We saw 6 tarsiers - most are further away from prying eyes. This felt like a place that was more about protecting the animals than pandering to tourists - just as it... More

Place to see cute tarsiers. Even there are a few of them, they are in their natural environment not as in Loboc which is like a zoo.

We went to this Tarsier sanctuary as a part of a tour. Originally included was the Tarsier conservation area in Loboc, but we had read about some questionable living conditions for the tarsiers there and chose to come to this one instead. It's so much more quiet and less touristy than the other place. We went late in the afternoon... More

Great little area to see the cutest little animals. The guides seem very respectful of the animals there, keeping their distance and not touching any of them. Very knowledgable with good English to explain everything to the tourists. Very interesting little creatures and worth the drive from Taglibaran.
