Amazing tour of Bohol must see areas with a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide who will know how to make you feel comfortable and have a good time on Bohol island. It worth the trip and the experience to see the little tarsiers - chocolate hills - man made forest - Loboc river and so on. These places would have been hard to visit by ourselves. We highly recommend this day trip with this agency.
