Tarsiers can be found in Bohol, Samar, Leyte, and some parts of Mindanao.
What are some of the best tours that include a tarsier sanctuary as an attraction?
Most Bohol countryside tours include the Tarsier Sanctuary on their itinerary. If you want an in-depth tour in this sanctuary, take the tour that includes lesser attractions such as this fun combination tour so you will have more time to explore the sanctuary.
When is the best time to visit?
The sanctuary is open all year round. The best time to visit is during the dry season in December to May. You can read more about it on our travel guide.
