Full description
Following pickup, begin your day on the city outskirts along the Ambassador Row, Istana Sharif Ali and Malay villages. Stop 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. For your last stop, 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, and join a crowd of Hindu pilgrims on their way to a series of gilded altars. This tour ends with a drop-off back at your Kuala Lumpur hotel.

    Nice tour, well paced and we thought worth doing. The macaques are a real pain, they are everywhere! Seriously off putting if you think you might be nervous of them coming very close to you. Not cute in any way. Also a long climb to the cave and temple, you need to be at least reasonably fit. Well worth the effort If you’re able though. Factory visits felt a bit like time filling

    We really enjoyed this half day tour.My only comment is on your website it says to wear closed toes shoes for this tour but everyone else was wearing sandles and 2 of our group had to stop back at our hotels to change back into our sandles to cool down before our last stop. But other than that a wonderfully organised tour.

    The tour guide was here on time to pick us up and the transport was comfortable. Needed not time at the batu caves as it can take a while to get up there especially in the heat. The time spend there was 1 hour and it simply wasn’t enough! Apart from this it was good
