How Much Does It Cost For a Day Trip In Bohol?


Bohol, in my opinion, is one of the best tourist spot in the Philippines. It is home to many natural beauties like mountains, rivers, forests and animals. Not to mention, the people of Bohol are warm and friendly. So, if you want a real good time, to relax, chill out and forget the busy life at the Metro, then Bohol is one of the top choices.

I personally recommend you to stay in Bohol for at least two days and one night to have the most of it. But since most people are busy, you can just have a bite of Bohol's beauty by having a day tour around the island. Here are some destinations in a typical Bohol Day Tour and how much is the cost per each stop.

1. Sagbayan Peak
Sagbayan Peak is a small park located on top of a high land. You can see a view of the surrounding places and some chocolate hills visible in the area. At the entrance to Sagbayan peak, there are also "tarsiers" that you can view.

The above places is just for a one-day tour. If you want to enjoy Bohol even more, you can still have the Danao Tour, and an overnight stay in one of the resorts in the Bohol island of Panglao.

Vehicle rental varies from 2500 to 3500 pesos depending on how good you are in bargaining. :-)

TIP: Do not arrange for a reservation for a vehicle. Just go to Bohol, via Tagbilaran Air/Sea Port or via Tubigon Port. There are many unreserved vehicles there and that's a perfect opportunity to bargain since they will be bidding for your rental.
