Thoroughly enjoyed this 1/2 day tour and would definitely recommend to others. The highlight was definitely the visit to the Batu Caves.

This served more as a form of transportation than as a tour.

Our guide was KL native, knowledgeable, was very Enthusiastic and excellent on tour of the Batu Caves. Very intriguing site, fun with the local monkeys and mingling with locals.

Good tour, interesting. The climb to the top of Batu Caves is worth the physical stress, although there is another Dark Cave at the top of Batu Caves that you don't have time to explore on this tour, which is a shame.

I am only giving this tour three stars for two reasons - the company running the tour essentially forgot about us or lost us in their booking system. After several phone calls from the friendly staff in our hotel lobby, we had a private tour organised as a replacement and off we went more than an hour after our scheduled start time. While we loved the private tour and our guide was great, we shouldn't have been lost or forgotten in the first place. Additionally, the tour claims to visit the Royal Selangor Visitor Center or Royal Selangod Visitor Center, if you take their typo literally! - we did visit a lovely Pewter Factory, but it wasn't Royal Selangor! I would recommend this tour though - it makes getting to the caves and exploring them quite easy!

Cheaper ways to get to caves.only 1 hour there then we were herded to a disgusting dirty run down pewter factory.
Not worth the $$ but the caves are amazing. I would suggest investigating alt ways of getting to caves and save you $$

Good: they contacted us beforehand and driver was waiting us in the hotel on time. He told a few things about the buildings on the way and was open to answer questions.
Bad: we were dropped at Batu Caves to discover the place on our own - this is not a guided tour, rather just a transfer to and back :
Also we had to wait about an hour for fellow travelers, not their fault, but should be prepared for these situations - our driver did not have their mobile number to reach them and by the time he managed to get some directions from the office an hour passed and they appeared. Quite annoying if you have 2 days only in KL with two kids...

Unfortunately the tour was bad. The driver was very nice, and tried his best, but the concept of the tour is terrible. First they sell you to some shops you have to visit, then only an hour at Batu Caves. For the dark cave tour there is no time, what was the the most special thing in Kuala Lumpur for me. I ended up not taking the drive home, and noticed that a taxi is only 5 USD and you don't have to visit their shops. Also you first get collected from a minibus for an hour, then resend to another car. So out of of 20 min one-way journey, there becomes a 2 hour one-way journey... However, the driver was very nice and friendly, and did a good job.

Your bus picked me up at my hotel despite last minute booking, the guide was friendly and helpful and bus air conditioned. When we made it to Batu caves we were given time to explore on our own.

Great tour, picked up from our hotel taken to the caves and you have plenty of time to wonder yourself, would be nice to have a guide inside to explain a few things but I don’t think that’s what they do here. But still enjoyed it all the same. We visited a Nice textile shop afterwards too.
