Over all experiences from the tour...

Over all experiences from the tour was nice even we didn't find it easy to be picked up because my friend and I was waiting at KL sentral station not hotel since we don't have one. It was raining after we arrived the cave but it was fun though, the monkey there also jump to hug me but I run..Lol. Anyway, our private 3 hours tour price for two persons in one sedan included one driver as a tour guide seem a bit high, to me It's more reasonable for 50 instead of 65.

Picked up from hotel at 1345, returned at 1900. Only 40 minutes of that time were spent at Batu Caves. What was not mentioned when booking this trip or on the itinerary, was that it also included a 30 minute stop at a pewter factory and 15 minutes at a batik printing unit. Majority of time was spent sitting in KL traffic and waiting for people to get back to the coach after each stop. Forget the trip - just get the train and do it yourself, probably a lot less hassle.

It is what it is! Royal Selangor is an interesting trip as you see the pewter process and the factory. The batik is just a shop trying to sell at over-inflated prices - but hey! Batu caves itself is an interesting place - lots of steps - but perfectly do-able and you get to enjoy the monkeys on the way up and back down. The cave itself is not so exciting if you have seen others - but again, is of interest. For me, the trip was well organised and executed - I have no complaints at all. But - it is not a trip I would ever do again - simply because there was nothing of enough interest to bring me back!

Great trip, good value. Long enough at each stop but not too long. Royal Selangor pewter works was very interesting. Batu Caves very different, beware the monkeys! 272 steps a very good work out. Not really interested in the silk shop stop.

It is nice to have someone driving you and giving information during the trip. It is worth letting people know in advance there are dress requirements for accessing the caves e.g. length of skirt/trousers, as it is hard to access changing rooms on the spot. The statue is impressive.
