What to Expect
Meet your friendly and professional guide at your Kuala Lumpur hotel and leave the city streets behind as you embark on this Batu Caves and Malaysian Crafts Tour. You’ll pass the famed ‘Ambassador Row’ as you depart the city and make your way to the picturesque countryside.

Pay a visit to the Royal Selangor Pewter Factory, where you’ll see how local artisans fashion handmade pieces using age-old techniques. Learn about casting, filing, polishing and hammering techniques used to produce beautiful works as you tour the factory.

From there, make your way to a local batik factory, where expert artisans create stunning masterpieces using fabric, wax and colorful dyes. Learn how this age-old art is produced and watch locals at work using this traditional art form.

After learning about the arts and crafts of Malaysia, head to the limestone hills of Batu Caves. Climb the 272 steps that lead to one of the country’s most incredible religious structures. Visit the temple museum, housed inside the cave, and listen in as your guide shares information and insight about the deities that are represented in the temple murals.

Your tour ends with hotel drop off in Kuala Lumpur, after a day filled with Malaysian history, culture and traditions.

Lovely caves, poor tour

The caves are lovely and my kids enjoyed them. The tour guide however was a shambles. She didn't really know any facts as we drove out to the pewter factory and on to the caves. Every sentence was a guess at what was going on...More

I'm not sure, but a pickup / drop off is part of the price in the tour - might be cheaper to taxi to a pick up point?

After I booked, I emailed the organizer to confirm the pick up place as my hotel wasn't on the list - but he then said it was fine, and the driver picked us up from our hotel with no issues. (in central KL) hope this helps,
