Bohol Day Tours.
Premium Countryside Tour with Lunch
Duration 10 Hours
Tour Code: IDDTTAG60
Drive leisurely through Bohol scenic countryside of thick nipa palms, coconut plantations and mahogany forest heading to the town of Carmen. Then, we will move on to Chocolate Hills. Here lay hundreds of dome-shaped-grass-covered limestone hills, when in summer, they dry up and turn brown transforming the area into rows and rows of chocolate “kisses”. We will continue and visit the Tarsier Conservatory where you will see Tarsiers in their natural habitat.
Tarsiers are small primates, and they are considered rare and endangered creatures. The tour also stops the Baclayon Church & Museum and the market commemorating Sikatuna and Legaspi’s blood compact. Private lunch will be on board a river raft with a typical Boholano country cuisine while cruising the Loboc River. There will be live acoustic entertainers and cultural performances by school children.
