What To Expect

Your half-day tour begins with pickup from your centrally located hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Depart in the morning by car or minivan to suit your private group, and relax on the short drive to your first destination: Batu Caves.

The statue of Lord Murugan greets you at the stairway to the Temple Cave; your guide shares fascinating tales and walk with you up the steep stairs toward the Ramayana Cave. Explore this limestone wonder at your own pace and descend for a refreshing coconut drink when you’re ready.

Your next stop is Selayang Hot Spring, where you can soak your tired feet in the healing mineral waters. It's a popular place frequented by locals. Then continue on to Kanching Falls for a look at the impressive seven-tiered waterfall. You decide how long you'd like to linger in the shade, scramble on the boulders, or take a refreshing dip.

If you'd like, order the Malaysian national dish, nasi lemak, for lunch (own expense); it consists of coconut rice and chili paste served in pandan leaf. Then head back to your vehicle for the return drive to your hotel and receive more recommendations from your guide.

Traveller Tips

Definitely recommend the private tour as it was a great way to get around rather than a bus tour.
I would recommend this trip; however, make sure your guide will be with you the entire time.
The great thing about a private tour is the ability to choose an earlier start time to fit your itinerary and never rushed.. We choose a 08:30 start to avoid the busy crowds at the Batu Caves.

Excellent tour just out of Kuala Lumpur
Vladimir_Y, Jun 2022
This is an excellent tour to explore malaysian culture and nature without goong too far from Kuala Lumpur and witout spending too much time. Povan is very polite and pays attention to the wishes of the participants.

Excellent knowledge tour & service provided by out guide Hoopy. The great thing about a private tour is the ability to choose an earlier start time to fit your itinerary & never rushed.. We choose a 08:30 start to avoid the busy crowds at the Batu Caves. Great to see the steps & the caves with minimal people in them. As we were leaving the crowds began to come as the big tour buses arrived. Took my parents who were in their 70’s & they had no problems with the steps & everything was done at our own pace, so never rushed. We had plenty of time to see all sights & our guide took & sent pictures to us afterwards. Would highly recommend.

Druann W, Jan 2020
Champ was a great tour guide and started well by being on time. His local knowledge was very informative and easy to understand. Going to Batu Caves early was a good idea as it was getting busy by the time we finished. Definitely recommend the private tour as it was a great way to get around rather than a bus tour.

We were picked up from our hotel by Hoopy on time and had private tour. Hoopy was knowledgeable, well spoken, friendly and she gave us a wonderful morning sightseeing. Highly recommend Hoopy as a guide.

This tour was amazing! Ramesh was personable and knowledgeable. He let us be flexible with how much time at each stop and added a couple of little surprises along the way. Would recommend this tour to anyone!

We had an amazing experience visiting the Batu Caves made all the more special by our wonderful guide Ramesh. His knowledge and obvious passion for the site and Malaysia in general made the day a highlight of our holiday
Great day
Anjana_C, Jun 2019
We had a great tour with Povan, he knew so much about the area and history and was a really funny guide. We loved all the facts about Batu Caves and the various empires and invasions. The hot springs were a great slice of local life, and the waterfalls were full of hidden gems. Interesting, personalised, and informative. Thanks Povan!
Great tour
Steph B, Apr 2019
Great tour. Would have been better if our guide climbed the stairs at the Batu Caves to explain the temples and caves as indicated in the tour info. Waterfalls are beautiful and the hot springs very hot. Guide was knowledgeable and personable but felt a bit stranded in the caves. Enjoyed the local meal and coconut water.

Our tour guide was very nice, but was unable to climb the 272 steps into the Batu caves so once we were in the caves, we didn’t know what we were looking at. I would recommend this trip; however, make sure your guide will be with you the entire time.

Great tour and awesome views. The cave was really quite something. The steps weren't that bad, but I did get scared a bit of the heights. The monkeys were a surprise , so many of them!
