Tarsiers are nocturnal creatures so they were naturally asleep. Only few of them in the area and all have their own area, tarsiers are territorial as described during the orientation. Very informative and educational, tarsiers are very cute and so little. Glad to see them up close, even just a few meters.

Not much tarsier to see. And I was not informed that its best to use phones to take pictures of these cuties. I hope the management will be more strict on implementing their rules.

Went early in the morning ( before 9 am) and only a few people were there. Passed by later that morning and the place looked packed. Well worth P60 to see these cute little balls of fur. The conservation area began the tour with a talk, then we were free to follow a short trail. Guides were stationed along the... More

They were really cute, jumping in their enclosures whenever a visitor gets close by to them.. But was saddened that manhandling of the tarsiers by families of tourists was allowed.. they r not soft toys but real living creatures.. my god...

Lovely little place however spoilt by the fact it's the workers let way too many visitors in at one time. The rules state the tarsiers need quiet and space however the day we visited it was ruined by loud rude Japanese tourists who obviously don't know the idea of being quiet. The Japanese also thought it was ok to whack... More

Wonderful experience to see this amazing creature and to hear about those lifestyle. It was challenge to find this creature hiding in the trees / branches. However, there was enough number of guides to direct us to find this species. The guides were knowledgeable and provides valuable information about the Tarsier

Our group (8 of us) with our tour guide were the first tourists to arrive at the Tarsier Conservation Area - 8:15am (the park opens at 8:30am, but our tour guide got us in early). The park is quite beautiful as is the small reception area quite nice and tells the story of Tarsiers (Smallest Primates in the World). We... More

Loved seeing the protected, natural environment to the tarsier. We saw 4 on our 30 minute walk and had a wonderful guide.

The tarsier sanctuary is a must see if you're in Bohol. Although the whole experience is over In about 30 mins - it's well worth it. Cheap entry and cute gift shop. The tarsiers themselves are adorable and I couldn't believe how tiny they were! It was tempting to reach out and cuddle one but don't worry, I didn't! Definitely... More

This is a must-see in Bohol. You can be very close to these cute little animals in their natural habitat; staff indicate where they are at that moment so you can see them. There's a gift shop at the end.
