Great tour. The guide was very knowledgable and even got us an Indian treat to try whilst showing us around.
Excellent trip. Very informative guide and those stairs were a lot easier going up than down. Watch out for the little Indian women hawkers at the base of the stairs - I swear she hung on to the side of the bus calling my wife pretty lady in order to make the sale.
That is one stunning statue by the way.
It was a great trip and It was the best that I have seen in Kuala Lumpur
Our tour was great, our driver/tour guide Lo was very friendly, spoke brilliant english and gave us a lot of interesting information. There were only 3 of us on our tour but Lo still put in a lot of effort. Went went to a chinese temple first and Lo gave us plenty of time to walk around, then we went on to Batu Caves, again we had plenty of time there and climbed the steps in about 5 minutes. We were slightly unlucky that we picked to go on a bank holiday(we didnt realise this until we were picked up) so traffic through KL was horrendous so we did not go to the silk factory but this did not worry us to be honest. It was raining quite hard when we arrived at batu caves so it was nice and empty and there were no monkeys. The monkeys did start to appear slightly later as the rain stopped so we were able to see them without being hassled by them on our walk- perfect for us! Great tour and would highly recommend it.
Fantastic, our guide was amazing and so helpful and his knowledge was outstanding
We had the best guide in Bhagwan Singh. Thanks to him we had a wonderful Batu Caves tour.
It was fanatstic would recommend it to everyone.The hosts were great and the information was boundless will definitely be going again
Julie was an excellent guide. Lots of knowledge, friendly, accomodating. Gave us heaps of info about the country, demographics, city etc.
Easy way to get to Batu caves and back. If you want to do the natural caves to the left of the temples, don't do the tour, as there is no time. Batu caves are huge, the temples surprisingly small - worth seeing.
The batik centre was good. Prices were on par or better than in KL itself and the quality was better.
Julie also stopped off at Little India which was a bonus and interesting.
Enjoyable day out which I highly recommend. Our tour guide Ei let us go at our own pace, and as we are fit young adults we had finished the Temple and Caves rather quickly. Instead of taking us back to our hotel straight away Ei showed us a few more sights around Kuala Lumpur to make up the time. Definately worth doing.
Educating trip with excellent guide. Highly recommended when visiting KL.
This was such a great activity. Our tour leader, Sing, was so great! Not only was he super informative but in general, he was someone that we wanted to spend the day with. He taught us about the history of the caves, the temples, the Malaysian culture (all with a sense of humor as well) and even stopped off to let us try some durian fruit. My favorite activity that I did while in Malaysia!!
AI our tour guide took us here again, the stairs was a mission but managed to get all the way up highly recommended with AI Thanks Viator and AI Tour Guide
Really greart guide/driver, could not do enough for our group.
great day, got to see alot and the guide was really informative - a real experience (just wish we had more time at the temple)
I'm not sure how, but I accidently booked the trip on the day before than I intended. The tour company even left me a message before I'd even arrived at my hotel to re-arrange it. Once I spoke to the kind lady on the phone, the tour was arranged for the next day without any extra costs.
Overall the tour itself was fun and very interesting. The tour guide was friendly, and the people we met who were also with us in the same vehicle were very nice.
I would definitely recommend using Viator and also the tour itself in KL. KL itself is such a beautiful city, and you must do the Batu Caves and Temple Tour from Kuala Lumpur!
Despite bad weather, this was still a lovely trip, the guides tried to avoid the rain by taking us initially to the Chinese Temple, we were then taken to a Batic factory and saw the silk being painted. Then off to the caves. Lovely time, brilliant guide.
Very much a to-do place. Our guide was informed and willing to share information. It was something I am glad I did and would recommend it to anyone. You do need a bit of fitness to negotiate those stairs!

Thoroughly Enjoyed This Tour. Nice Weather and Excellent Company. Our Guide Suggested We Do The Climb In Our Own Time and Not Try to Keep Up With Everyone Else In The Group.
This Is What I Did and I Completed The Steps In 50 Minutes. Beautiful Views Looking Down Into Kuala Lumpur From The Steps.Be Warned Fellow Travellers Do Not Take Shoulder Bags, Drink Containers, Any Food Such As Packet Chips Etc As The Monkeys Absolutely Love These Items and Will Steal Them Out Of Your Hands. They Leave Things Like Cameras and Glasses Alone. The Monkey's Don't Hurt You and The Ones Carring Babies On Their Backs Actually Pose For The Tourists To Take Their Photos. Definitely Recommend This Tour To Anyone Staying In Kuala Lumpur For A Few Days. Also Visited Batik Factory and Saw How Batik Cloth Is Hand Patterned-Very Interesting.
