Batu-huletur fra Kuala Lumpur
A short 30-minute drive later, arrive at Batu Caves, a massive limestone outcrop with interiors housing a Hindu shrine lined with different deities. Before climbing the 272 steps up into the high caverns, marvel at the impressive golden structure of Lord Murugan, standing tall at 140 feet (43 meters). On the way up, be greeted by mischievous little monkeys.
Upon arrival at the top of the steps, enter the Cathedral Cave, the biggest cave of the complex featuring a high ceiling and ornate Hindu shrines. Explore the cave complex with your guide and learn about the history and cultural significance of its various features.
Then make a stop at a local batik center and discover how this popular Malaysian fabric is designed and printed. Before returning to your hotel, visit the Royal Selangor Visitor Center to gain insight on pewter smithing and innovative pewter-ware design.

Good overall. Pesky monkeys, athough cute and all they can be rather annoying, pee and crap everywhere on the stairs and hand rails. The cave is surprisingly large but little disappointed with how the space has been utilized within. There could be much more to the story.
You book Batu Caves and also get 2 shops to stop at enroute which is annoying but think most tour companies will do the same. The easier way to do this tour is via the hop on hop off which will go out there 2 times a day and give you enough time to climb the caves without the shops plus cheaper
Thoroughly enjoyed this 1/2 day tour and would definitely recommend to others. The highlight was definitely the visit to the Batu Caves.
This served more as a form of transportation than as a tour.
Good: they contacted us beforehand and driver was waiting us in the hotel on time. He told a few things about the buildings on the way and was open to answer questions. Bad: we were dropped at Batu Caves to discover the place on our own - this is not a guided tour, rather just a transfer to and back : Also we had to wait about an hour for fellow travelers, not their fault, but should be prepared for these situations - our driver did not have their mobile number to reach them and by the time he managed to get some directions from the office an hour passed and they appeared. Quite annoying if you have 2 days only in KL with two kids...
Your bus picked me up at my hotel despite last minute booking, the guide was friendly and helpful and bus air conditioned. When we made it to Batu caves we were given time to explore on our own.
Great tour, picked up from our hotel taken to the caves and you have plenty of time to wonder yourself, would be nice to have a guide inside to explain a few things but I don’t think that’s what they do here. But still enjoyed it all the same. We visited a Nice textile shop afterwards too.
