Tour guide made the right choice of letting us enjoy Genting as our 1st stop rather than Batu Caves. Both guide & driver were very professional, polite & warm. However, kids felt that time was too rushing as they’re unable to enjoy most of the rides esp when the indoor ones only starts at 1400hrs. We were to meet the group at 1515hrs. Moving forward, maybe pick up could start even earlier or have smaller groups? Indeed it was a great experience though. Thank u Ivy tour

My family and I (parents and grandparents) took this tour to Batu Caves and Genting Highlands! Exceptional guide, tour, and sites to see. Our tour guide was McPaul. He was incredibly informative and engaging. We got a great mix of history, culture, insta-worthy sights as well. The drive was also very smooth. The stop at Genting Highlands felt a little too long, but there's a ton to do (temple site is a must-see, Outlet shopping, rides, etc.)

Akmal was a very friendly and informative guide. The time for each stop was perfect for us.
