It was an amazing day!! To see the Tarisers and then the lovely relaxing lunch cruise on the river followed by the stunning Chocolate hills…a day to remember!!! But the other highlight of the day was our wonderful wonderful guide Laurean ….she was just a lovely caring and informative guide …. Made our day extra special

Great day seeing the sites of Bohol. The chocolate hills were impressive, lunch cruise was great, seeing the tiniest “not monkey” primate was probably once in a life time thing and visiting some of the oldest churches in Bohol was cool! Good guide and safe trip so overall a great day!
