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.

    Book this tour! We had originally planned to go to Batu Caves on our own but this experience was better than anything we could have planned, especially with the two additional stops to the Batik shop and Pewter factor which we never would have booked. A big shout out to our guide Mr. Wai - he was so personable, knowledgable, and went above and beyond in so many ways. He passionately shared his knowledge of Malaysia, personal experiences, traditions, and recommendations to make the rest of our trip smooth and memorable. He helped take us to buy our own Batik kits to take home, dropped us off at an amazing restaurant, and helped arrange our airport transportation.

    We had a lovely morning visiting the Batu Caves, the Batik showroom and Selangor Pewter. Steven was our tour guide and he was very informative, funny and certainly had plenty of stories along with helpful information. Highly recommend this tour if staying in KL. Fun day out and we are off to Malacca tomorrow with the same company.

    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.
