It’s definitely worth it. My tour guider, Lucas, is a professional and knowledgeable Malaysian Chinese. He can speak many languages including English and Cantonese. He know a lot about the history of the attractions. Suggest many ways for us to have fun. For the tour, there is not in a rush that I expected although we visited both Batu Cave and Genting highland. It’s enough time for me. 1 hour free time stay in Batu cave and about 4 hours free time in Genting highland. The weather is good too, not too hot, 23 degree temperature. Monkeys in Batu cave was not scared to tourists, you could take a photo of it. Genting highland locate 1800 above the sea level. There is so many shopping malls and restaurants. Overall good, thank you Lucus, driver, and also other groupmate. They arrive on time and very polite.

This is one of the best day tours in Malaysia. Mr.Steven, the local pickup driver and Mr.Sebu, the bus driver are very good. Special mention to Mr.Cheng, our tour guide with excellent manners and knowledge. Overall, I advise everyone planning to go on a day trip to Batu caves & Genting Highland tour to utilise this package which is economical and worth our money.

In just few words i can summarise that really everything was Amazing. The guide was super profesional, very very kind and ful of heumor, also very good driver and comfortable transport big bus, very good trip organised with timing respect, and very beautiful nature a long the way up to GENTING.

Super friendly staff and helpful information about the places that we pass by. You could expect around 1 and half driving “round trip” but it definitely worth it.

MC, The guide, is very helpful & knowledgable. Well organised day trip. Recommend Ivy Holidays for all travellers to Malaysia.
