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.
The ChineseTemple tour was first and then on to Batu Caves. The temple is fabulous, not as big as the one on Penang, but equally as ornate. Batu Caves is amazing - lot of steps though, those with vertigo beware they are quite steep. The view from the top is great. Unfortunatley the Batik factory was closed (it was New Years Day) but we'd already seen a batik factory in Penang. So the driver offered to take us to anywhere else we had not seen, which was very accommadating of him.
Excellent. The guide was very well spoken and interesting. I would recommend anyone to do this tour.
excellent tour from start to finish. its a must to do when in k.l. service from viator on my three tours with them was excellent and will be booking with them again on my next trip.
Brilliant--my trip ended up being a private tour and my guide was entertaining,helpful and courteous to a single lady traveller.I would thoroughly recommend this visit and excellent value for money.
Fantastic day with a fantastic and thoughtful guide named Lo. Thoughtful because he suggested we reverse the itinerary and do the Batu caves first as he thought it would rain that afternoon - and down it poured when we should have been at the caves. I never thought I would make it to the top but I did and was greeted by a wonderful view of both the caves and KL.. The Batik stop was lovely but clothing was very very expensive so neither the others or myself bought anything as I had wanted to do. The Thean Hou Chinese Temple was marvellous and mystic. A great trip which I would recommend with a great deal of enthusiasm
Local agent was very helpful and friendly. Lots of useful facts along the way. Both the temple tour and Batu caves were interesting. The wild monkeys at Batus Caves made for great photo opportunities. Only wanring: be prepared to walk a lot and steep stairs at Batu Caves so not for those with walking disabilities. Great tour.
Very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable tour guide and driver.
Very good afternoon trip! The guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer our questions about Malaysian culture. I was a solo traveler but was joined by a trio from Australia. Lovely people. Would have been nice to know about the Cave Tour that is just to the side when you get up the top, but as it takes 45 minutes and we only had an hour sadly we couldn't do it.
The stop at the Chinese Temple prior to caves, then a silk factory after were a nice touch too. Great day out
