    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.

    No just the many steps. Not suitable for disabled or frail elderly guests. Most children can manage the climb, but not toddlers. If you are fit then you may be able to carry a toddler.

    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?
