A wonderful trip. Our guide was great and looked after us well. The visit to the beautiful Batu Caves was fantastic. It was really nice being able to feed the elephants. One of the highlights however was the optional visit to the Deer Park, which is well worth paying for. Got to hold a Python there.

Really great experience, especially bathing with baby elephant.


4 star rating: Recommended March 2016

Outstanding tour. The drive out of KL was scenic and once at the elephant sanctuary it was fantastic. To have the chance to get up close to these magnificent animals, including bathing with them, was simply a once in a lifetime event. Yes, it's a tourist type activity but the elephants are well cared for and part of an unfortunately under-funded conservation effort. By participating we felt we were doing our bit. Highly recommended.

You get to see the Batu Caves and you have the chance to swim with a baby elephant, so it's a great combo tour!

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur late the night before this trip and so did not have time to phone the travel company on the ground to confirm the trip. But it was already confirmed by email with Viator. However we were not picked up at said time and waited for some time to allow for traffic delays etc.with no results. We asked the concierge to make the phone call for us which eventually yielded results - after more than one call. We were then picked up , but although we had a driver, he certainly was no guide. That meant we were driven to the destination - namely the elephant sanctuary, via the other stops included in the trip, but with no information to speak about. It was good to see the scenery, and the famous Batu Caves, and the little Deer Farm,and we stopped at a fruit stall where our driver bought some pieces of exotic fruits for us to taste,on the way. After lunch at a country roadside restaurant a very country restaurant , we arrived at the elephant sanctuary. Our driver walked into the main Conservation Center with us and pointed out the theatre for the audio-visual documentary which he told us would start at 2pm. So we went to see the elephants first which were located in lovely landscaped gardens setting. We then rushed back to the theatre to see a group of people exiting - the show was over. Our driver had got his times/days mixed.So we missed the explanation documentary which we were very disappointed about. Our drive back was uneventful, and silent, and we arrived back in Kuala Lumpur at least a couple of hours earlier than we were meant to. That was the difference between having a driver and a driver/guide. I must say we were very disappointed . Our elephant habitat in Dublin Zoo,Ireland take part in elephant and all animal conservation programmes and I could, hand on heart say it is just as ,if not more, exciting as Kuala Gandah.! In defence of Viator I would put the blame on the local travel company on the ground in Kuala Lumpur for this.
