The last before this recent travel, I remember a not so organized Tarsier Viewing stop. But lately, what a great improvement! - parking, ticketing, CRs, knowledgeable marshalls, cute umbrellas for the hot days, and the shop.

These creatures were in the brink of extinction, so I was glad that I was able to see them, had a hard time looking. It rained during that time so they were hiding under the leaves and the staff would actually point them out for...More

This was very interesting to get up close and see the Tarsiers but also to find out information about them. I thought the sanctuary was well done and not too touristy. We didn't spend long but it was definitely worth it.

Not many of these little primates left. This is the only place that you will find them. Very good for young children and adults to see them fast asleep in the trees.

It's a good place. first time to see tarsiers in flesh. You need telephoto lens to capture them in distance because they wont let you come close to them.

We were very excited about seeing the tarsiers, and we're thrilled to see them, however it appeared to be a vert 'staged' environment and we, and all the other tourists basically followed the guide in single file along a path and didn't have the opportunity...More

The last time I was in Bohol was a decade ago. Back then you could visit a number of places that had tarsiers in captivity where you could have a more up close and personal encounter with this now second smallest primate in the world....More

One of the few places you can watch tarsiers in their habitat. Guides make sure tourists respect the environment. You see tarsiers from very close. Nice experience.
