Admire this old stone church and its religious relics dating back to the early 16th century. Later, watch local craftsmen as they make bolos and other handmade metal crafts in the town of Loay. See local men and women weave Nipa leaves into roofing materials, before visiting a typical Boholano home, the Clarin Ancestral House.

Feel the coolness of the air and gaze at the thousands of painstakingly planted mahogany trees in the man-made forest of Bilar. From there, feast your eyes on the breathtaking Chocolate Hills, a collection of over 1,200 clustered green hills that turn brown during dry season.

It almost doesn't get any better!

There were only two of us on this tour plus our tour guide - thus private transfer :-) We learned a lot about the island of Bohol, Panglao and also about the history of the Philippines. Tour guide was very well prepared and was able to answer any question. We were at the Tarsiere, Chocolate Hills, Butterflyfarm and on the river for lunch. In the afternoon we saw a church from the 15th century. This excursion was really great!

After paying over 500 AUD for this tour,i was expecting that everything will be included but that not happened. We got charged another $100 for riding the ATV's on the Chocolate Hills I need your explanation for this pls Thank you
