Spend an hour here during my bohol visit and it's well worth checking out . Smallest monkeys in the world and are very cute . Daytime when we came here they are sleeping but can still see them on the trees very close . Night time hours could be more interesting and will do that next time . Souvenirs are... More

We went on an organized tour from Alona Island on Panglao Island. Bohol and the Chocolate Hills were on our must-see list before we left the states. They certainly did not disappoint. Great photographic possibilities and fun. Lunch on the Lomboc River Cruise was amazing. We stopped at the Tarsiers. Would NOT call this a "conservation" effort. Its a money-making... More

As part of our Bohol day tour, we visited the Tarsier Conservation Area, which is something we'd wanted to do since booking our honeymoon. We were fortunate to arrive before peak times (as I'm sure it gets busy when coaches appear), and therefore were able to wander through the forest pathways in total peace. After about 5 minutes of walking... More

Worth doing, and it's on all standard tours, so you can't really avoid it even if you wanted to. No information provided on these animals though, which is a bit of a shame. They are very small, appear to be nocturnal and hide under the palms of trees. This is about 10-15mins visit max. Would recommend you read up on... More

the sanctuary is well maintained and is very important for conserving the Tarsiers. The animal itself is a wonderful creature and very difficult to spot

The tarsier sanctuary was a great way to see the tarsiers. The staff are helpful in quietly pointing them out. We saw about 6 tarsiers and everyone in the sanctuary was quiet and respectful of these timid animals which was helped by many signs and the staff being very present. Would recommend! Spend about 30mins here, you get subtly guided... More

I had not heard of a tarsier before we visited Loboc! Cute little creatures, look like Yoda from Star Wars - small, pointed ears and big eyes! At the center they tell you that they have around 600 tarsiers in a breeding area, you then take a short forest walk (around 1km) where there are circa 8 tarsiers which you... More

As these Tarsiers are rare seen animals and as I heard they just come out 3 months a year, since October to February, so this might not happen a lot for you to go to Bohol and seeing Tarsiers! I mean, come on! We went thousands of miles to Philippines, why not trying to see those tiny animals?! P.S the... More

This is a good and responsible way to see these unique animals. They are the smallest primates (and indeed they are pretty small) in the world and these people have designed a short walk through a small forest in which they have great 'roofs of leaves' under which these solitay animals hide, but you can see them very well. Nice... More

We lucked out and saw five Tarsiers on the day we went, even though it was raining! This apparently was unusual so have to say that it was luck of the draw that we had a good time and saw so many. This may account for a higher rating than others may have given. The conservation employees are all very... More
