Full description

Following pickup, begin your day at the Royal Selangor, which features the largest and most modern pewter factory in the world. It is also world-renowned for its high quality and craftsmanship.

On your factory tour, learn about the different processes at this factory such as casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering and engraving. Next, stop at Batik Factory to see how batik is designed and printed. Next, head to the limestone hills of the Batu Caves, comprised of three caverns and several smaller caves. Pass a towering statue of Murugan as you climb 272 steps into a cave shrine, and follow vivid murals of Hindu scripture. Spot the macaques that live on the lush cliff face. End your day on the city outskirts by driving past local villages. The tour ends with a drop-off back at your Kuala Lumpur City Centre hotel.

    Highly recommend this experience!! We absolutely loved the Batu Caves and had enough time to take pictures, go up and down the stairs and enjoy this beautiful place. Everything was also very well organised. We were picked up on time directly at the hotel (the driver confirmed the time a day prior) and was even a little flexible with dropping us off at the end.

    Abaleé was our guide. He was simply great, and we learned a lot about the country and culture. Thanks a lot for this, we really appreciate it a lot! He also recommended other activities to do, and we will try them this afternoon. We loved the Caves but enjoyed them more when getting explanations and stories about the activities. Thanks

    Fantastic half day tour. The pick up was right on time. The pewter shop/factory was an unexpected treat. Very interesting process and lots of good souvenirs to buy if you are interested. The visit to the caves was also just right. Our tour guide Mac (sp?) was excellent-- very jolly, funny, and knowledgeable. Also great value for the money and the aircon on the bus was super strong!
