    Keep in mind Viator is a consolidator and hands off the actual tour to a 3 party. I have used their service twice for this tour. Once in 2018 and again last month 2020.
    Both times were acceptable but this most recent tour was exceptionally good. The driver/guide ,David, was very well informed with excellent communication skills.
    I think the actual Company was Travel and Tour Incentives. In any event, David should be complimented. The communication with pick up time etc. was prompt and courteous via text message. Much better then the first go around.

    Wonderful guide. His knowledge wasn’t great but he did admit it. We had the best time looking at the 3 places. So much history there

    This was a fantastic tour prompt collection from our hotel, informative guide took us to the royal selengor pewter factory which was stunning, then onto silk garment factory before the highlight of the tour the batu caves, plenty of steps but can be done at your own pace and there are paces to stop and get great views back on the city, once at the top the temple and cave are spectacular, as expected the area at the back of the stairs has become very commercial for the tourists and you can pick up all types of souvenirs, the gold statue is an amazing picture, would recommend this tour

    Well organized half day trip outside of KL with excellent side trips to the pweter factory and the pitik shop were wonderful. Learn a lot. The main attraction, Batu Cave was more a tourist trap than the rest. Overall enjoyable excuses to get out the city.

    David was a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. The Batu Caves are beautiful and fascinating, and I learned a lot more from David than I would have if I had visited alone. Highly recommended tour and tour guide!
