marvellous experience.be prepared for the 272 steps and watch out for the monkeys as they will pinch any food you are carrying
Everybody must go to the Batu Caves, a definite sight to see, walking the steps was abit of a challenge, but I did it and I enjoyed it. If your an older person or extremely unfit I recommend a longer more relaxed tour as this tour was rushed, the tour guide was very informative but beyond the cave and pewter factory info his English wasn't flash, no conversation at all. I was surprised to see the amount of rubbish laying around inside the caves, I would have thought all this rufugee lying around in a place like this would be disrespectful, it would be so simple to keep clean, not a good look. To walk the steps and see inside these caves cannot be missed, it's my 2nd time and im sure it won't be the last.
Good! Enjoyed it very much. Well organized tour. Good guide and driver.
Great way to see these attractions when you only have a little time. Well worth doing. Lovely guide.
Excellent based on what we paid! Only £12 each, includes everything! Tour guide on coach was very knowledgable! highly recommended excursion. 8/10.
The trip was good value for money. Pickup was from our Hotel then we transferred busses at the Visitors Centre before heading out to the Batu Caves. On the way we stopped at the Royal Selangor Pewter Centre which was cool. They make some of the F1 trophies which were on display. The second stop was at an art and craft store not far from the caves. Basically an opportunity to try sell you stuff but there is no pressure to even go in the store if you don't want to. Once at the caves there was plenty of time to check out the temple and even for the most unfit of people, enough time to walk to the top of the stairs and back. There are plenty of monkeys running around which try to scab food from you. This place was not the cleanest but well worth the look.
Viator once again are a well organised and professional tour group. The guide Simon was exceptionally knowledgeable and extremely funny. The tour itself was really just one of those tours to say we have been and done. Although, in saying that, we did enjoy the silver and pouter plant.
We spent more time in factory then at caves. In total we had 45 mins at the cave - which was dissapointing.
It was very good, but not enough time at the cave. Didnt get to see all we wanted to see there, i would go there on my own next time , not with a tour, because they, just dont allow you enough time to climb up the stairs and have a look around.
Tour was great except for the batu caves and batik trip. We conquered the 242 steps but when we got to the top, it was not what we expected. Batik trip was somewhat okay because the demo on the use of scarves were doable. However, the speaker who discussed how batik garments were made is incomprehensible. We didn't understand
a word from her. We enjoyed the Royal Pelangor tour because it was very informative. Our tour guide, Stephen is very professional and knowledgable. In summary, tour is okay but can still be improved.
