Beautiful Bohol is home to some of the Philippines most iconic sights, best beaches, great outdoor activities and an impressive cultural heritage. Our Fascinating Bohol Tour allows you to see the very best of this charming island in a day filled with fun and wonder.
The first stop on the day tour is at the Philippine Tarsier Foundation in the town of Corella, which serves as a refuge for the smallest primate in the world, the Tarsier. Observe these rare, nocturnal creatures in their natural habitat and be amazed by their agility as they move about, leaping from tree to tree, and swivel their heads nearly 360 degrees.
We then proceed to Baclayon, making a short stop at the historical Blood Compact site, where Spain’s Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna, a native chieftain, sealed their friendship with a symbolic drink. Close by is Baclayon Church, one of the many ancient stone churches in Bohol which famously survived a strong earthquake, losing only its bell tower and portico. The church has a museum containing a vast collection of religious art, ecclesiastical vestments and librettos inscribed in Latin on animal skins.
The tour then continues passing by the Bilar man-made forest, a thick woodland of towering mahogany trees grown on the fringe of the highway leading to the geological wonder, the Chocolate Hills. From a distance, these hills look like huge candy drops and they actually change color with the seasons. During periods of rain they are covered in lush green vegetation but turn deep brown in the drier summer months – hence the ‘Chocolate name. Those who take the short walk up to the viewpoint are rewarded with a birds eye view of the surrounding area and an opportunity for some memorable photos.
Next we travel to the peaceful and meandering Loboc River where a cruise upstream on a floating restaurant is made more enjoyable with a delectable late lunch served on board. Guests then enjoy a leisurely transfer back through beautiful countryside to their hotel and resort.
