Enjoy An Extraordinary Bohol Tour Experience

What makes a Bohol tour special is the extraordinary fun and exciting experience of traveling to an island full of diverse historical, cultural, and heritage sites to visit with many other land and water adventures to enjoy in a Bohol vacation.

The Different Types of Bohol Tours

Countryside Tour

Most resorts offer a countryside tour that includes a land tour throughout the island of Bohol with various destinations such as the Chocolate Hills which is located at Carmen, Bohol. Tourists will enjoy watching the marvelous work of nature of creating one thousand two hundred sixty eight uniform shaped hilly cones that look like chocolates at a glance especially during summer when the bright sunlight highlights the color of the hills. This work of nature makes it one of the world's wonders.

The other stop for this tour is a visit to the blood compact site at Tagbilaran City. One will see the marker where the blood compact or sandugo agreement took place between the Spaniards and the Filipinos.

This reflects the friendly relations fostered by Spain and the Philippines. This marker is the site that shows where the First Treaty and First Seed of the United Nations bonded the white and brown race.

A visit to the Baclayon Church at the town of Baclayon will show you one of the oldest stoned churches in the Philippines. It consists of a museum that shows artifacts dated 16th century ago. A Tarsier sanctuary is located in Loboc and tourists will drop by to see the smallest monkey species in the whole world. Bohol is the place where most of these primates inhabit and they are considered to be endangered species.

A man-made forest is found in Loboc-Bilar, which created a cool atmosphere and an awesome view to the people passing the road going to the Chocolate Hills. The road is lined with thousands of mahogany trees which the people planted to create a forest atmosphere. It is one of the fascinating views to see in Bohol and almost everyone passing by the road will look at the tall trees in awe.

The tour also includes a trip to the Loboc River commonly called the Loboc River Cruise. The river is located in Loay-Loboc and one can enjoy the panoramic views of the plantation of Nipa palm lining the Loboc-Loay River.
