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.
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 "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.
