A short distant from the city outskirt is Batu Caves – a massive limestone outcrop with its interior dominated by a sacred Hindu shrine lined with different deities, located deep inside the high caverns which take 272 steps to reach. Outside the caves, marvel at the 43 metres high golden statue of Lord Murugan. Tour also include a visit to a traditional Malaysian Batik Centre to see how Batik is printed or hand-drawn using wax and dye, and Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre to witness the making of pewterware – Malaysian’s most distinctive craft.

Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.
After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, embark on your cultural exploration of Malaysia.
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.
Note : Driver/guide may not able to accompany guests in climbing up the caves, narration will be given in any case.

rate is on higher side w.r.t klook but ticket availability is fine in last moment plan.
also driver is very good means knowledge level is fine and very co -operative
This was exactly what we expected. We had limited time (half day before flight to Singapore) and Batu Caves was the last item on our must see list while in KL. I think that it was worth spending money - travelling in private we have saved a lot of time, have seen what we wanted to see and were guided by professional driver / guide who really shared with us his knowledge about the place and gave us enough time to explore on our own pace. We have seen Batu Caves, batik factory, Royal Selangor pottery and a Chinese temple at the very end. We have also been given advice about one of the best Chinese restaurants on our way home so that we had a great lunch before departing KUL. Special thanks to the very professional guide and to the organizer - we had 3 trips with the same provider and I must say that two of them were really excellent.
I had seen a number of reviews that suggested this tour wasn't worth it because it was little more than a glorified taxi ride ... the Caves being self guided and the Pewter factory having its own (fantastic) tour. That might be slightly try but for the convenience, the added commentary and happy to answer any question David leading the tour ... it was excellent. The bus was comfortable, air condition and right on time. I would highly recommend seeing the sights with these guys.
Our tour guide was amazing! We loved this tour
Well organised tour pick up on time .Good guide & driver, Saravanan , who was knowledgeable , friendly and effecient.
Drove us well, and gave proper guidance and information. Brought us back to town in time
David was a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. The Batu Caves are beautiful and fascinating, and I learned a lot more from David than I would have if I had visited alone. Highly recommended tour and tour guide!
Great tour experience,Batu caves are amazing,toured with a great group of people ,and the tour was very well organised,tour guide was very informative and so friendly
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.
A beautiful and historic destination. Keep an eye on your belongings with the monkeys around. The monkeys are seemingly far more aware and intelligent than many of the people who visit. I knew Charles Darwin was right.
