Private Tour: Batu Caves and Temple Afternoon Tour from Kuala Lumpur

After pickup from your Kuala Lumpur hotel, take a short drive through the Brickfields neighborhood, known as Little India. Explore this colorful community before continuing to the highlight of your tour, spectacular Batu Caves.

This massive limestone outcrop features an impressive cavernous interior home to figures of Hindu deities. You may see friendly monkeys hanging around the entrance before making your way up the 272 steps; it may be a feat, but it's well worth it -- it's the surefire way to fully appreciate the temple in all its glory. Your guide will explain why many Hindus consider Batu Caves one of Malaysia's most sacred places.

After your time here, head to Gombak to visit a local arts and crafts center, where you'll see the art of handmade batik silk design. You'll also watch a jewelry-making demonstration. Finally, arrive back in Kuala Lumpur and end your tour with hotel drop-off.

Our guide turned up exactly on time. He was a really lovely man and very friendly. Our trip was everything I expected. The caves are amazing and definitely worth the trip. Would definitely recommend the trip and your company to others.

I expected more from this experience. Save your money and just get a taxi to the caves. This was not a private tour. Our guide dropped us off at the base of the caves and said to meet back at the car in an hour. That is not a private tour. Once we climbed the 270 odd steps to the entrance, we were surrounded from the front to the back of the caves with rubbish everywhere. If this is supposed to be a temple people worship in, then why do they trash it? Absolutely disgusting.
