Great day seeing the sites of Bohol. The chocolate hills were impressive, lunch cruise was great, seeing the tiniest “not monkey” primate was probably once in a life time thing and visiting some of the oldest churches in Bohol was cool! Good guide and safe trip so overall a great day!

It was the most beautiful tour I’ve been on in a long time. You have to be careful of every step and the tour guides are very good. It was an incredible experience

Driver Mawing was very friendly and knowledgeable, had a good conversation while travelling to and fro. Guides on the Trail were helpful too.

Fascinating animals and nature. Highly recommended. Unfortunately, we did not get the waterproof bag and cell phone case that we bought.

Wonderful experience! I can’t recommend Mark (Mac) enough: exceptional guide
