Punctual and professional guide. During the trip he explained to us the specificities of the country and the region. He was listening to his guests.

The Batu caves are amazing, really loved it. But second point - batik factory is disappointed. Not interested, just fast 3 minutes story about paint and than you have to go to their shop. It's the shopping stop, not sightseeing. I'd prefer spent more time at the caves. I really don't understand why I wasted my time at the batik's shop. The tour was during about 2 hours: 1.30 hour at the Batu caves and 15 minutes in the shop. Thirty minutes for transit.

My tour guide was very helpful, kind and knowlegeable, connected to all the areas that we travelled to. I learned about the different cultures, history, religions and daily life of the Malaysian people. The tour was diverse in its experiences, as I got to experience the beauty of the Batu caves but also see local craftmenship in clothing and pewter designs. I enjoyed eating my first, fresh coconut too! I would not have been to find and experience these special visits without this tour, as I was travelling on my own. Many, many thanks!

Batu Caves and Lord Murugan Shrine

Following pick-up, enjoy a ride over to the Batu Caves located 8 miles away from the Malaysian city in the Gombak district. Embark on a comprehensive tour of the Caves, well-known for limestone rocks over 400 million years old, and some beautiful Hindu shrines surrounding the area.

The Caves are also Malaysia's most visited Hindu shrine, dedicated to Lord Murugan, the son of Lord Shiva. The temple's crowing glory is the gigantic statue of Lord Murugan, also the third tallest statue of a Hindu deity in the world. As you admire the surroundings, learn about the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam, celebrated here on the full moon between January and February. For a dose of adventure, you can climb up the 272 stairs to the top of the cave entrance system and reap the reward of gorgeous city views for your efforts.
