OMG - how many steps (way to many!) and how steep!! It's pretty awesome seeing the temple inside the cave once you make up all those steps. Just don't mind the bats!! The Chinese temple was great to visit and there are small "good luck" things you can do while there. Worth joining this tour to learn more about Malaysia's Chinese and Indian heritage.
Again, excellent value for money - guide made tour very interesting . Excellent air conditioned coach.
Batu Caves can not be missed. Climbing the 272 steps are a feat in itself. We felt pretty pleased to have done it. The place is enormous and impressive
Our guide was so knowledgeable and very friendly. I loved every bit of the tour.
It was a marvelous experience and our tour guide was very professional and friendly with much knowledge.
I was on the KL city highlights morning tour where the tour guide said the tour company asked whether I was able to do the Batu Caves tour on the same day - I agreed knowing it was going to be a long day. This tour is good - I went on a day which was a public holiday so some of the places on the itinerary were replaced with other things by the tour guide. Our guide was great - very knowledgeable, almost to the extent of being TOO informative but it was great in hindsight. The caves itself are good - mind you that it is 272 steps in the heat or heat & sun. It took no more than 15 minutes for myself and another lady to go up the stairs (great way to work off the fab Malaysian food!!) Monkeys on the stairs are 'cute' but really a nuisance as you have to stay clear of them, not feed them, not touch them, not drink water in front of them, not touch your sunglasses in front of them! This tour was good - would recommend for others to do.
Loved this tour very much. I was impressed with the Batu Caves and even though I didn't buy anything at the batik shop, I enjoyed seeing how they make their products. My tour guide was awesome too. He was super friendly and helpful.
He was amazing, the tour was great and the tour guide knew some much knowledge. The caves where great and we saw monkeys and snakes. We went to other place as well, which I didn't realize that was part of the tour. A lovely tour and worth it.
We only had two days in K.L and this tour was recommended to us. Definitely do it! Ask for someone called Mr Sing. We had our own private tour with him and he was so knowledgable and a fantastic tour guide. The best part was he told us so much about K.L not just about the caves tour and the pewter factory. The only thing i recommend is make sure you confirm your hotel pickup before you arrive because it was really difficult for us to do so when we got there.
Please take this trip, Our guide was so lovely - very well informed. It's a lovely afternoon out of KL and the Batu Caves are an amazing place even if you have to walk all 272 steps to them.
Once we resolved the problem of our booking, no one turned up on our first date we had to re-arrange date, this visit to Batu Caves is amazing...we took fruit for the monkeys, and they do come and take it from your hand and peeped in my bag for more!The statue at the entrance is unbelievably high, plenty of opportunities for photographs. We also fitted in a tour of a batik factory, which is really a store that you are encouraged to buy from, not sure if original batiks are made there, but an enjoyable end to our day.
Nice caves once you've managed to go up the 242 stairs among the monkeys! Very nice tour.
Amazing and a must do if in Kuala Lumpur. Tour guide was great and totally fluent in English.
First class trip ... enjoyed the one-on-one attention ... tour guide enthusiastic, and very knowledgable.
I think it is easier to do a tour with this one! As it is at least a 30 minute trip from town. I enjoyed the caves, we also bought bananas and fed the monkeys that live there. Our local guide was great!
This was a good value afternoon out and well worth doing. There were only 6 of us on the tour, and it was nice to have a smaller group. The pewter factory was interesting to see how they still do everything by hand and to see the F1 trophies they've made. We decided along with the other people in the group we weren't that interested in the Batik stop so we gave that a miss. The caves themselves are an interesting visit and the monkeys don't bother you unless you've food or drink on display, so keep those out of sight if you want to avoid monkeys harassing you! The local company was providing the tour for people who'd booked through someone other than Viator which had an additional stop in their itinerary, meaning we'd the added bonus of a visit to a Chinese Temple at the end of the afternoon also, which was worth the visit too. Guide was good providing a huge amount of info throughout the afternoon, but he shouted everything! i definitely recommended this if you have a spare afternoon in Kuala Lumpur.

Loved the tour, the tour guide was very informative. Butik & Pewter factory and fun. Loved the exercise of walking up so many stairs and looking at the monkeys.
Arrived there in middle of the Hindu Festival. Great if you can make it up the steps. However for the not very fit I suggest you check out the steps first, about 300, very steep incline in hot weather.
Very interesting tour, we went just before February, so it was busy with preparations for the Chinese New Year's festival.
This was a very good way to explore the area just outside of Kuala Lumpur. Definitely worth doing.
This turned out to be a personal tour as I was the only one on it. My guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. The caves and the surrounding are interesting but be warned about the climb to the caves and also the monkeys along the climb.
