What to Expect
This tour begins with hotel pickup in Kuala Lumpur. If you’ve just arrived to the city, the scenic drive provides a good way to orient yourself. You’ll arrive at the Batu Caves, limestone masses home to golden Hindu shrines and a plethora of grey macaques. Let your guide bring the Hindu history of the monument to life and ascend 272 steps to the statue of Lord Murugan. Following a tour of the Cathedral Cave, you’ll head to the Malaysian Batik Centre and Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre to further explore Malaysian culture by hearing about two of the country's most popular handicrafts.  Afterward, climb back onto your coach and return to your Kuala Lumpur hotel.

It was good to see the caves, but you don't get to see much else. You get a trip to a pewter factory which was interesting. The driver/guide was helpful and informative.

Be prepared for quite a climb in hot and humid conditions. Take your camera with you. There are some shops around you can buy water from though.

I visited both the temple cave and the natural cave. You get at much time as you want in the temple and the natural cave tour is about 30mins. There are quite a few monkeys around the stairs. Public transportation links are available.

Interesting temple with really beautiful design and structure. I have never seen something like this and it is worth to climb all the way up for a really awesome view

The pick-up was late for 35 mins! Driver rushing to the venue with very brief introduction along the way. Was given 55 mins only for Batu Caves. All passengers were asked to alight at the road side somewhere near to KLCC, we were supposed to be sent back to the original pick-up
