Well organized half day trip outside of KL with excellent side trips to the pweter factory and the pitik shop were wonderful. Learn a lot. The main attraction, Batu Cave was more a tourist trap than the rest. Overall enjoyable excuses to get out the city.

Caves Good other parts of the tour not so!

The Batu caves tour was good but only because of the cave itself, not the operator. tour guide a bit wishy washy on the tour due to local accent, the Batik place they took us to was overpriced compared to the rest of the city and to be frank pointless because no one was really interested in a) how it was made and b) interested in buying anything. The Pewter tour was good but could have been shorter giving more time at the caves. The caves were good and worth the visit but more time needed.

The tour guide and the driver were excellent and provided very helpful narrative during the drive, once we got there and on the way back. The Cave and the Hindu temple within it is certainly a must visit in KL (provided you have 2-3 days like I did). The visits to the tin and Batik store after the caves weren't as interesting (at least for me)

Really enjoyed this tour - was traveling solo and was pleasantly surprised when I joined and there was an entire group of solo travellers my age who also signed up! It was nice as we all had things in common. I mostly chose this tour for Batu caves - which were beautiful! But the bonus of going to the other two stops actually ended up being a highlight - really enjoyed the trip to the pewter factory. I had such limited knowledge and it was so great to learn more about this production and history! Our guide, David, was fantastic. He was super personable and you could tell was really passionate about the tour and he has a lot of knowledge and spoke great English. I would sign up for this again just to be on his tour!!

David was a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. The Batu Caves are beautiful and fascinating, and I learned a lot more from David than I would have if I had visited alone. Highly recommended tour and tour guide!
