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.

Excellent tour. Only problem was that the contact numbers provided did not work, however the car and guide showed up as scheduled. This is our third time to Bohol and we truly enjoyed this tour.
