Full description
Enjoy a trip to the countryside, stopping at interesting factories and visiting the incredible Batu Caves. Begin your journey with a pickup at your Kuala Lumpur hotel. You will be taken to experience the outskirts of the city along the ‘Ambassador Row’, Istana Sharif Ali, and Malay Villages. Stop at the Royal Selangor Pewter, the largest and most modern pewter factory in the world, reputed internationally for its high quality and craftsmanship. You will see the different processes, such as casting, filing, polishing, soldering, hammering, and engraving. Next, visit a batik factory to see how batik is designed and printed. The last stop will be at the limestone hills of Batu Caves that comprises three caverns and several smaller caves. Pass a towering statue of Lord Murugan as you climb 272 steps into a cave shrine and follow vivid murals that bring scenes from Hindu scripture to life. 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 concludes with drop-off at your Kuala Lumpur hotel.

    My guide Arun was great! I had already seen Batu Caves previously and he was very accomodating when I asked for an alternative activity. Very communicative , friendly and informative during the drive. Will suggest this tour if you are a first time solo traveller and want to have an easy start to the rest of a trip. Shirls✌️

    Fantastic introduction to Kuala Lumpur

    We were met on schedule by Sagar at our hotel and taken to visit 13 highlights of KL. We expected to be in a group and were very pleasantly surprised to learn that this company provides individual attention and we were the only passengers. Our driver and guide, Sagar, was very pleasant and a very good driver, (Driving standards in KL and very low) . We thoroughly enjoyed our experience although it was very tiring as there is a lot of step climbing, particularly at the Batu Caves. Highly recommended.

    If you have one day in KL this is the tour to do!

    Our guide, Fatima and driver, Sigar could not have been more helpful and informative. We had a wonderful day (family of 4 with a 16 and a 17 year old) which was well planned out to make sure we didn't get held up in queues etc. The Batu Caves were amazing and we covered the whole of the main sights in the city in the 8 hours allocated for the tour. Couldn't recommend this tour more highly!
