Explore the Batu Caves with a private guide, and get more from your experience than if you were to explore independently. During this Batu Caves private tour from Kuala Lumpur, you’ll walk through the caves to see the Hindu shrines, catch sight of the Lord Murugan Statue, and learn about the history of the area. Plus, your tour includes a visit to the the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre and a batik-making center, as well as round-trip transport from your hotel.

Highlights

  • Visit the Batu Caves with a private guide to see and learn more than traveling solo
  • Stop by a traditional batik and pewterware center to hear about both processes
  • Choose from a morning or afternoon tour time to best suit your schedule
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off included for added convenience

Your friendly guide and professional driver will collect you from your Kuala Lumpur hotel for this private afternoon tour of the Batu Caves. You’ll wander through this colorful part of the city as you listen to commentary from your guide before making your way to the Batu Caves.
These limestone wonders have deep caverns that protect Hindu deities. Watch monkeys playfully swing from trees around the entrance as you embark up the 272 steps to the top of this famed destination. Hear from your guide why the Batu Caves are considered one of the nation’s most sacred places and gaze out at the incredible views from atop the staircase.
Next up, see how batik is made in Malaysia by visiting a traditional center to learn about the printed or hand-drawn process using wax and dye. Afterward, your last stop of the day is at the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre to explore how to make pewterware.
Your tour ends with private transport back to your Kuala Lumpur hotel after an incredible day exploring.

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.

Our guide gave us some interesting information about the city, caves etc., but didn't actually accompany us into the caves, leaving us to explore them on our own. That said, there isn't a huge amount to be explained inside the caves themselves. They're decorated in a rather tacky fashion, and unfortunately they're currently undergoing major renovation, so are something of a building site! We still found them interesting to see, and our guide driver was very accommodating about modifying the itinerary to help us see the sights we wanted.

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!
