    • For all of our tours we were thinking of having booked with different agencies. Finally all travelers were picked up by their hotels and gathered in the touristic office. There we were split to different buses based on the destination and all of the times we were served by tour51 even though none of our bookings were with this agency. So my proposal is choose the cheapest and just be lucky to have a good guide! Our guide in this tour was very good, willing to share with us a lot of info. However I did't like that he mentioned that it is necessary to wear long trousers/skirts just when we arrived to a touristic batik shop pushing us to buy something and not mentioning that there are lots of shops with half or less prices I am not talking especially for batik but for something just to cover your legs. In any case be prepared and WEAR something long or have a LONG scarf with you!

    • They picked us up from our hotel at 1:45 pm the trip should start at 2:00 pm we waited until 3:00 at gathering place not that we have waited for someone who would join the trip. No there was no bus. Everyone was there but no bus. The trip startet 1 hour late. There was not even a apology for that.

    • This tour is value for money as price is really high, and with it the people on tour are also many. Guess the craft part of the tour can be reduced and there should be two stop-points - Batu Caves and tin fabric/museum. The guide was quite informative and shared overall information about Malaysia. Would be better if more time and recommendation regarding Batu caves would be given.

    • It was good, but a couple of stores to shop before

    • Our tour guide is very accommodating and cooperative. Tired but great experience. Thank you!

    • Tour guide was funny, great and informative. Place was wonderful.

    • A great tour just outside the city of KL. Batu caves were great, even though you have the 272 steps to climb to get there. Monkeys that hang around all the way up the steps are very cheeky. Selangor Pewter factory and Batik workshop gives a great insight into craftsmanship still done by hand. A highly recommended tour

    • Must see and no need to pay a high cost tour for this. Those reviews that fear the monkeys or feel it is not so clean are probably first time travelers. The monkeys are harmless, but yes if you leave out food or a water bottle they will quickly grab it and move on to eat or drink. One monkey actually grabbed someone's water bottle that was sticking out of their back pack and opened it and drank it. I am overweight and have bad knees but had no problem with the steps. If you go on this tour, some choose to hike up quick and go deep into the caves while others just go up slow and enjoy the entertaining monkeys as they feed themselves or their babies they have with them. The guide was exceptional and I am so glad I chose the most economical tour for this. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Also the craft stops were interesting and absolutely no pressure to buy.

    • Really enjoyed this tour. prior to visiting the Batu caves we visited the Royal Selangor, where they make the oscars and trophies for formular 1, very interesting factory tour. We also visited the batik and silk printing works, with a demonstration by hand. The Batu caves is a fantastic place to visit and we had time to climb the steps to the top, where we saw monkeys and fantastic views xx

    • Very interesting but could do without the visit to the craft centres on the way. Would prefer more time at the Batu Caves.
      Just a tip for ladies you need to be covered up entering the temple but you can hire a wrap type skirt outside the temple area very cheaply.
