    you can travel around Bohol and have your hotel accomodations arranged via travel agencies like Travel Treats Tour Services. they package tours like a Countryside Tour that takes you from Tagbilaran City to the Blood Compact Site, Baclayon Church and Museum, Loboc River Cruise, Bilar Man-made Forest, Chocolate Hills and Sagbayan Peak. you can also request to go to Hinagdanan Cave in Panglao Island for an extra fee. their tours are ideal for groups of 4(for cars costing around P2,000) and groups of 14(for a van costing around P3,000). they also arrange your hotel accomodations at the same price as the hotel charges you for so it's less hassle for you. all you have to do is contact them and arrange for a hotel or inn in Panglao Island or Tagbilaran City(which is cheaper). you can also arrange for a Pamilacan Island Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour.

    Mini-bus to Alona Beach

    by npamo Written Jul 19, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cheapest way to go to Alona Beach from Tagbilaran is via a mini-bus or jeep. It costs P20 and takes about 45 minutes. Just ask any tricycle (P6) to take you to the jeep/mini-bus terminal going to Panglao. Or if your near the Bohol Museum, it is just walking distance.

    Bohol Countryside Tour

    I called up Rod but was referred to Lyndon instead, very good deal (P2500 for a van for 8 persons - I think the price is standard) for a whole day Bohol countryside tour. You have to provide lunch during the river cruise (P280). He fetched us directly from the Tagbi airport and sent us to the hotel after the tour.

  • Scooters

    by donstruan Written May 18, 2007

    Scooters are the way to get around Panglao. If you go to Tagbilaran, you must have a helmet on, which you can do right before you hit the bridge. Negotiate for multiple day prices and it's very affordable. We got one at night at the scooter hangout spot a few yards from Alona Beach. During busy season, they are a hot commodity, so get them in advance. I think we got ours at about 1600 pesos a day (usual is 800 for 8 hours). I may be off a few hundred, but with the exchange rate, its not much.

    They are a lot more flexible than van and car drivers. The most important tip I can share is to know where to get gas. They are sold at sari sari stores in old coke bottles. This is to prevent being charged for not returning the bike with correct gas amounts. If you return at night, it can get very interesting stopping at every sari sari store looking for gas, which made one night for us fun.

    You also should be honking your horn every time you see people, animals, and are going to overtake someone.

His number: 0918-591-4969. He calls his company Bohol Tours. BTW I decided in favor of Dumaguete as a place to live.

    our driver and tour guide

    Rent a car, van or motorbike. You got to deal with the driver so it wont cost you that much. Set a time to start your tour on the place and so the driver will pick you up. Start your ride at 8 or 9 in the morning so you can have much time looking around and taking picture.

    We have used Kuya Rod for our tours after reading one of the VT member experiences and I have to say we where very please to have made the same decision!

    Kuya Rod will make you feel like a guest and not just another tourist in his province and for me what impressed me the most is how proud he is with his province and the work that he is doing. Sadly enough this is something that I did not encountered that much in my 1 month visit in the Philippines.

    Bohol tour with Kuya Rod includes: Blood Compact Site, Old Coral Baclayon Church, Giant Python, Loay Backyard Industry, Clarin Ancestral Home (Surprisingly informative), Loboc Floating Restaurant (River Cruise), Tarsier, Hanging Bridge, Man Made Forest, Chocolate Hills, Cave, Souvenir Shops and City View.

    If you need more information just give him a call at : Outside The Philippines 0063-918-591-4969 Inside PH. 0918-591-4969

    Email: rodboholtours@yahoo.com

    Dario's Filcab: A Bohol Adventure

    Dario's Filcab: Feel the breeze, feel the sites...
    2 more images

    Hasse and I walked past the drivers and into the lot where Dario T. Petalcorin fixed the front left side window of his filcab (pronounced with the filipino accent, PIL-cab).....I laughed at the odd shaped vehicle. The runt of the jeepney litter, the Thai tuk-tuk's long lost brother, would be, I decided confidently, our transport to Panglao island (300 pesos) and for the tour the following day (1250 pesos for two persons)...
    the next day when we tumbled through the natural landscapes of Bohol island. The motor roared with the wind's rhythm and every moment along the bumpy ride I felt more a part of the environment than I could have in the confines of a car or bus. We were unique in this experience. Descending the scenic stairway of the Chocolate Hills, the road was lined with air-conditioned smooth transports and sandwiched between them was Dario's filcab. Despite its small size and rough exterior, the native vehicle stood prominently among its’ thoroughfare rivalry.

    Owner: Dario T. Petalcorin
    Filcab seats two to five people comfortably
    Costs negotiable

    Ferries to Cebu

    by John6868 Written Jan 2, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Regular fast ferries run from Cebu to Bohol (Taligbaran).
    There are at least 3 companies "Weesam" "Oceanjet" and "Supercat" and the timetables are printed in the Cebu local paper. Between them about 8 - 10 journey options are available.
    We chose Weesam and was able to get a return First Class ticket for 700 peso.
    The boat ride is just less than 2 hrs and is approx 75km.
    At holidays the boats get busy. However be persistant. I was number 14 on the standby list and only 6 places were indicated but was still able to get onboard and sat in the Bridge with the Captain.
    No boats run on 1 Jan.

    How to travel around Bohol (5 destinations)

    by mintymint114 Written Jun 29, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Instead of hiring a car which cost around PHP 1,800.00 for the countryside tour, (quite high for a price considering two of us will just share the expense) we tooked the V-Hire and bus instead. Tip: Leave the hotel around 8 a.m., ride a tricycle and tell them to take you to the bus terminal. Pay 10.00 pesos/head. Then inquire at the information booth for a V-Hire (vans)going to Carmen where you will see the chocolate hills. The van leaves every 30 minutes until 2 p.m. It will just take you an hour and 20 minutes to reached Carmen at 70 pesos/head. From the drop-off point, a motorbike will take you to the main entrance of the view deck for 10 pesos. (one-way), or if you opt to walk, it will take you 20-30 minutes to reach the entrance.

    After viewing the chocolate hills, take any regular bus going back to tagbilaran (fare is 20.00/head), tell the conductor to drop you off at loboc church located at loboc's town proper. (If you wished to take the river buffet cruise) The loboc river cruise is just across the church. And make it on time for their lunch buffet.(250.00 per head) Or tell the conductor to drop you off at the tarsier center, to see the world's smallest primates and ride on their small boats or 'bangkas' instead. (you can haggle to pay 300.00 pesos instead of their usual 500.00 boat rental if you are just around 2-4 persons). Advantages, the smaller boat can access to a nearby cool natural spring water, and get nearby the waterfalls at the end of the river. Just tell the boatmen to drop-off you at the town proper after the trip. (If you tour around 11 a.m., so you could still make it to the buffet cruise)

    Then ride again a multicab bound for tagbilaran and tell the driver to drop you off at Baclayon Church which will take you another 30-45 minutes ride. (Fare around 30 pesos)

    Then take again the multicab and tell the driver to drop you off at Blood compact site in Bool. (6 pesos/5 mins ride)

    And ride again the same public vehicle back to the city proper.

    Our expense: 250 pesos/head.

    Actually experienced changing the tire!

    If you have the luxury of time, try to enjoy the different modes of transportation around Bohol. Take the plane ride from Manila to Cebu, then catch the boat ride to Tubigon. From Tubigon, get the 5-peso trike/jeep transport to the bus terminal. Go to Carmen on a van or on the roof of a jeepney! From Carmen, hire a habal-habal to take you to Chocolate hills. Going down to Loboc, take a bus ride, then enjoy your lunch on a river cruise aboard a raft. From Loboc you can take a jeepney ride to Tagbilaran and finally by tricycle or habal-habal again to Alona beach. We had fun riding on almost all the possible transportation in Bohol! One important thing... learn how to change a flat tire of a motorcycle!
