Ok, so I'm all about sticking with the rules and keeping quiet, but this place is noisy! Children and adults running around disturbing the sanctuary, there's really not much to see here since tourist have ruined much of the sanctuary. There's only a handful of tarsiers left. This trip we only saw 5.

This was my first ever time to see Tarsiers. I had read the "for and against" arguments before I went. I am pleased I visited and saw them. There are staff members at every stand to ensure that no selfie sticks are used, silence is observed and no flash cameras are in operation. It's only a small fee to enter... More

Tarsiers are said to be the smallest monkey in the world. The conservation area is a tourist spot in Bohol. Everyone wanted to visit this place. The tarsiers were so tiny, we couldn't see them unless someone pointed it out to us. It was helpful to have the guide on every strategic place of the area. Unfortunately you need a... More

This costed $1 USD per person so it's hard to say it's not worth it. You do a quick walk through a really quiet area to see tarsiers! They are tiny and hiding in the trees and sleeping for the most part so hard to really take any good pictures and they let you get pretty close but not right... More

This place will surely make you "aawww" when you see the very tiny primates hanging on branches tree. The whole tour will last about 15 to 20 minutes. After the orientation, you will now proceed in search of the Tarsiers. There are guides in every stop where they will point you where the tarsiers are. We saw about 6 very... More

Nice stop to the Tarsier Conservation Reserve...You get a live close up view of these tiny primates hugging a branch or leaf...Its great to support this primate as it once was on the endangered species list. Certainly worth the stop on the way to or from the Chocolate Hills

The area is the only authorized tarsier conservation. It's simple but informative place to know all about tarsiers. You just need to stay quiet not to disturb the little ones on their sleep.
