Your tour will begin at 9:00AM with a hotel pickup and then you drive to the Batu Caves in an air-conditioned vehicle with your driver/guide. The Batu Caves are a popular attraction located in Selangor. The site of a Hindu temple and shrine, the Caves attract thousands of worshippers and tourists, especially during the annual Hindu festival, Thaipusam. There are 3 main caves featuring temples and Hindu shrines. A steep climb up 272 steps rewards you with views of the stunning skyline of Kuala Lumpur. Monkeys frolic around the caves, and it is a popular spot for rock climbing enthusiasts. Paintings and representations of Hindu gods can be seen in the Ramayana Cave. Next, visit the National Mosque, or Masjid Negara. Built between 1963 and 1965, the idea was to commemorate Malaysia’...

    This tour was a great way to see what we wanted to see for our first trip to Kuala Lumpur. We wanted to spend a half day seeing religious sites. The tour was very flexible and accommodating, since we only wanted to go the Caves, the National Mosque, lunch and Central Market. We were traveling with 3 teenagers and 2 grade school kids with 2 families and this was more than enough for the kids. Make sure though you cross reference Hindu and Muslim religious holidays and festivals with your trip. We lucked out and nothing was going on. But the guide told us for one Hindu festival week, the Caves are jammed with worshipers. The tour guide was also very helpful. He did not come with us in the Caves or the Mosque. The Mosque has their own tour guides and the Caves really didn't need one. But I recommend you do research on the caves. Lunch was in a very local Indian restaurant. The food was great but if you or your kids are not very adventurous you might want to pack snacks

    This was the best money spent in KL! Amazing tour, a full day with the best tour guide Chen! I did not have much time in KL (just a long weekend), so wanted to see all the sights in a short period of time. We ticked off everything I wanted to see, and Chen was so knowledgeable in facts about KL and the places we visited. He was also very patient in getting the best photos, and would go the extra mile in getting them. He will tell you the exact angles that will look best, and it was so worth it coming back with amazing photos from the Batu Caves and Petronas towers! I highly recommend this tour, Ben and Chen to anyone tight on time but wanting to see everything. I left KL feeling that I've really ticked off everything I wanted to, thanks to them!

The Guide, Nantha, made the trip exceptional. He was jovial, very knowledgeable, very patient. He explained everything in detail and gave ample time to enjoy it. Excellent tour!! The guide gave us TWO hours of his time. I was coping with a foot injury and not once did he rush me, so I felt very comfortable! Great person. The fact that he was " eye candy" did not hurt one bit!

The best tour guide we have ever received. Great tour, great team, very friendly, very competent, highly recommended. Any time! We will never forget. Thank you so much. We hope to see you again. Stay healthy

Very good excursion 2 regrets: no visit to the mosque because schedule closed to tourists. Plan 1 itinerary in accordance with the times Indian restaurant lunch, I would have preferred 1 Malaysian specialty
