Such good value for money. Our host , MC was very informative providing info on the Malaysian culture as a whole as well as the Batu Caves. He was also very helpful when I left a gift item on the bus by mistake! Batu caves was an incredible place to visit and to be honest, the pewter factory tour was also very interesting.

Really punctual pick-up at the hotel & safe journey to the Caves. The guide Bob was really nice. At the Caves you have one hour for the visit and walk by yourself. After that, you drive to a Batik Shop and see, how the production is. Then you return to KLCC. All in all it was a good tour, but I think you can go cheaper.

We had a great visit to the Batu Caves. Tharma arrived promptly to pick us up. He took us to the Cave and took some great photos for us. He gave us an introduction and left us to enjoy the complex. He was waiting for us when we were done and divered us safely back to our hotel.

Janar my driver/guide was very good, he also speaks Italian. The tour is pleasant and varied, you have about 30 minutes at each site to visit.

The guide was really informative and open minded about questions in different perspectives.
