Explore the beauty of Bohol in this private day trip combined with a buffet lunch cruise and standup paddleboarding. For visitors staying in Cebu, this tour is the perfect opportunity if you want to visit the island in the comfort and convenience of your own air-conditioned transportation.

After being picked up from your accommodation in Cebu City early in the morning, you will head to the port and board a ferry that will take you to Tagbilaran. From there, you will proceed to your first stop: the Blood Compact Shrine.

This historical monument portrays the Sandugo ceremony performed in 1565 by chieftain Datu Sikatuna and Spanish explorer Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. They drank a mixture of their blood and wine as a symbolic act to seal their friendship. It is considered to be the first treaty between the Philippines and Spain.

From the shrine, you will continue to Baclayon Church, the second oldest stone church in the country. This National Cultural Treasure was built using coral stones and more than a million egg whites.

You will then proceed to Loboc River for a paddleboarding session. The calm waters of the river is perfect for beginners. If you haven't done it yet, no worries. Your guide will assist you!  Muster your appetite, as you will enjoy a lunch buffet afterwards on the Loboc Floating Restaurant. You will feast on freshly prepared Filipino dishes while watching a cultural dance presentation from the locals.

More adventure awaits after you finish lunch and head off to Sevilla. Cross the 40m long Sipatan Twin Hanging Bridge that’s made of bamboo slats and held only by steel cables 20 meters above the Loboc River.

Your final destination? It will be the town of Carmen where you will find the world-famous Chocolate Hills, an area with over a thousand limestone hills that turn from green to chocolate-like brown depending on the season. Occupying 50km of land, the hills will be visible as far as the eye can see.
