We had a great time at the caves. I was surprised that the guide didnt go with us, but I guess considering how many stairs there are I cant blame him. Both the view and the caves themselves were well worth the climb, but I wouldnt recommend this tour to anyone who has difficulty with stairs. We took a private tour, so had plenty of time to explore the caves and the surrounding area.

We had a very enjoyable day. I was surprised that our guide didn't go with us, but considering the number of stairs and how often he takes people there I can't say that I blame him. I would not recommend this tour for anyone incapable of climbing A LOT of stairs, but both the view and the caves themselves were well worth the climb.

A fantastic tour! Batu caves is a definite must-see when visiting KL. Despite the hundreds of steps up, its very much worth it as the cave and the views are incredible. My guide was very knowledgeable and told me all about the history of the caves and their cultural and religious importance. Highly informative and interesting! He even took me into the Ramayana Cave just around the corner as well, as we were a bit ahead of schedule, which was just beautiful to see! I highly recommend!
