This was a great tour. Our guide, Guna, was really informative. The best guide of all our tours.

Amazing statue. There are 272 steps. Don't look down when climbing. Take you time. Once get inside, the cave is amazing. You can go into second cave after taking a couple more steps. The second cave has natural sun light coming from open-top. I like second cave more. Cave is so big I think a 737 can fit. We didn't go to Dark Cave. You have to pay to go in there. Two paid trips for Dark Cave. One for Education and the other is for Adventure which is farther inside the cave. You will see monkeys there. They are not aggressive. One note, don't look up while climbing; you will be looking at someone's bottom.

Excellent tour. Even though there were other guests in the trip as it was a shared trip, was enjoyable.Only the Batik village included in the trip was time wasting thing. Just a store with so much things to sell, most of which are not traditionally printed items. Driver was very informative and timely.

Even though this tour can be done on one's own I liked that it was organized by someone else and that I didn't feel alone. The cave was interesting but the best part were MONKEYS, lots of them. As I am an animal lover I enjoyed little creatures stealing people's food and drinks or just playing around. There are many stair to climb so someone who has difficulty with stairs would have a hard time, but for the rest of us with the few rests it is very doable. There are many new things that they are building on the top and in about a year there will be even more things to see and take pictures of. WORTH THE MONEY, even though I bought two tickets and used only one I do not regret.

Great day out - beware of the monkeys ! Easy day out and well organised - thanks a lot

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.
