Very well run attraction with staff who can locate the little Tarsier for you. We managed to see one with it's eyes open!!!!! Quite unusual as most are asleep as they are nocturnal. Well worth the effort.

Visited today and it exceeded expectations. Well organised and very nicely laid out. Reasonably priced entrance fee of 50 peso per adult. Children under 5 are free. Guides are very helpful throughout the trail that point out the tarziers and are informative in answering questions....More

5 stars for the cuteness of the tarsiers. I liked how tarsiers are free in the garden (although they stay at one spot and sleep.) It’s hard to find them by yourself because they are tiny but staffs are everywhere in the garden and will...More

Just a very unforgettable & remakable experience. Thrilled to have experience and seen by my own eyes these tiny little creatures "tarsier" and impressed to see how they are being taken care of.

A bit of improvement from the last of my visit years back. Though needs more renovation. It should have other activities showcasing the tarsiers.

The center is pretty small but it’s easier to see tarsier with guid. It takes 15-20 mins to finish the trip. Suggest combining with other activities instead of just visiting it.

Hello, was about an hour and half to Carmen - Chocolate Hills, so I will say one hour ride to Tarsier Conservation. We rented a little van for 4 of us and went to see both places in one day. I can ask my friend for price... More

Bohol Island can be circumnavigated in a day by car or van. If you really want to go to the Tarsier Sanctuary, you can do so at anytime wherever you are staying on the island.
