The tour took us to see some local crafts ( Batik etc…) and the Royal Selangor factory on the way to the Batu Caves. The walk up to the Caves is hampered by the monkeys that jump around wanting food, flowers etc… The Caves themselves are superb and well worth the 272 steps up!

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.

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.

Was good to see batu caves. Would have preferred longer there than others. Pewter factory was interesting.lots of stairs to climb and busy but was interesting.

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.

The tour guide was not good at all. He was simply pointing us to the trees/plants and other buildings. He was simply repeating the same information over and over again. The trip to the cave was okay as we were simply dropped off and picked up again.

The tour to battu caves and royal selengor was great while the batik house is waste of time.

Fire the Tour Guide. He made our group 11 and others on the tour a miserable experience. The guide spent 95 % of his time talking to the driver and on on his mobile phone. None of the people on the tour gave the guide any tip. He was more interested in us buying stuff at the pewter and batik place.

The "Malaysian Craft" portion, which included batik art store and the pewter factory was boring.

We were allowed 1 hour at the caves. I was most interested in the bat caves. If the tour guide had told us it was a separate dark cave tour we would have done that before hurrying to the top or we could have taken our things with us and taken transit or taxi back to the hotel. As it was, we went to the top, came back and had to wait for our guide. We were given 1/2 hour at the Selangor Pewter factory which was the right amount of time. There was not time limit on the Batik silk store. It was interesting for 5 minutes but took much longer than anyone on the tour needed. We all waited about for our guide to finish chatting with the owner/staff. The time wasted there would have been enough to do everything at the caves.

Just a gimmick to take you to local businesses and make you buy stuff.
