Know More about this tour

Your Bohol day trip begins with pickup from your Cebu hotel and a short trip to the port to catch the ferry over to Bohol Island. Youll land in the island capital, Tagbilaran, and board an air-conditioned coach to tour Bohols scenic countryside.

Your Bohol sightseeing tour takes in many sights, including the bronze statue known as the Blood Compact Monument, commemorating the first treaty of friendship between the Spanish and Filipinos. Youll see the lush foliage of a forest of mahogany trees, prized for their timber, and pass villages surrounded by local nipa palms. Visit Baclayon Church and admire its traditional Spanish colonial architecture. Explore its neighboring museum with your guide to see historical relics dating back to the 16th century!

Then head to the water to board a cruise on the Loboc River, and enjoy an authentic lunch of Filipino specialties served on board the boat, buffet-style. Youll be serenaded by guitarists playing local folk songs as you dine and glide along the river. If you dare, step on stage and take part in one of this country's favorite pastimes - karaoke! Your guide will also help you spot tiny tarsiers playing on the riverbank theyre not easy to find, as theyre the worlds smallest primate.

After lunch, take a scenic tour through the islands interior to Carmen, where youll visit the thousand or so rounded hills known as the Chocolate Hills. Youll have fabulous views over Bohol Island from the Chocolate Hills viewpoint, with free time to browse the stalls clustered here.

  • OMG! A must-do tour. Worth every cent. The driver was very knowledgeable. The church was beautiful and the chocolate hills breathtaking. The tarsiers are so cute. The butterfly sanctuary was also wonderful. Lunch on a river cruise was enjoyable and so was the show on native song and dance.

  • Must do. The Tarsiers, the main thing I wanted to see was first. You really need to see one or have something to give you scale. The as soo.. small, and the eyes are huge for the body. The Chocolate Hills, I see why the name. As our tour guide said because of the lack of rain, and now just starting to rain they are the mint Chocolate Hills. The river cruise excellent, try the cane dancing, great fun.
    Be prepared for a long day if coming from Cebu. I was ready as I had read this in another review.
    What would be great would be to have a trip with a overnight in Bohol, then you can see the Dolphis in the morning before the trip. There's so much to see that you get overloaded, maybe it is to make you return.

  • Oh wow! Our tour guide and driver were amazing and we want to do more! The company clearly offers only top end high quality choices, Only complaint was a bit hurried, but we got it all in along with a few extras, The island is beautiful and we enoyed the day!

  • I LOVE THIS TOUR! The guide was really informative. I loved seeing the Tarsiers and the butterflies. The children singing and dancing along Loboc River was fantastic. Definitely recommend this tour. BUT, I would recommend staying in Bohol because Cebu is awful.

  • Nice trip. No rush. Many nice spots.
    Profesional guide with many informations.

  • My partner and I enjoyed this tour, however it is worth noting that it is a lot of travel in one day. You spend so much time in the car/ferry/transiting that it felt like we were rushing around the actual sights. Also the river cruise takes a long time - what I really wanted to see were the tarsiers and the chocolate hills and by the time we got around to them we were rushing. I would recommend this trip, but I wish we had actually stayed in Bohol at least a night.

  • Private tour, fabulous experience, a must do.

  • Very good tour and would recommend to everyone visiting Cebu. However, it is not an 8 hour tour - it is at least 12 hours minimum.

  • Getting to the jetty was great. Pick up was on time and efficient. However, there was a slight confusion at the jetty as the tour company got us confused with another group but later found that we actually have an exclusive tour. The tour guide who picked us up when we got off the ferry was great! She was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant. It was a wonderful experience. However, the only set back was when we returned to Cebu on the ferry, the hotel pick up waited at the wrong jetty and we were left waiting for a good 1 hour before we found him - asleep in the car! That was not very nice...
